    hey just a little info, i bought some for my 84 and if i had to do it all over again i wouldnt go with them, they are to expensive and i still dont like the idea that i had to drill holes in the body /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif if your tring to eliminate rust i would just try to cut the fenders, i wish i would have went this route. hope this helps

    Do you just cut the rust off and bend them under? Like rolling them? Cutoof wheel? Does everyone just cut off the rocker panels? Any info. would be great, brand new to wheelin!

    As far as the rockers go, do a search for rock sliders!

    well if i may step in here
    i replaced my rockers with weld ins for 25 bucks, they are great
    i also have the cut outs, and i have to be perfectly honest, they are the best thign i ever done to the rig, less mud on side, more clearence, and just looks good, they werent that bad on price i think some where around 250 is what i game for all 4 of mine, i would do it and will do it with any rig i build after this one, great investment if you ask me
    i just took a plasma cutter to mine, cut it all out, and pop rivited the flares on
