    Well I don't know how well they will hold up but it's worth a try. It didn't cost me but the few $$$ for hardware. My bud gave me the steel for free and I did the welding at Dad's house. Then I had my friend weld them to the frame for me and bolted the brackets to the body mounts. If they don't work out I will just buy the rocker replacement ones. As you can see the rockers have been getting thrashed for a while now. I wanted to get these on before next weekends Hump and Bump north of Las Vegas. Should be a blast /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You don't think it will be a problem having them welded to the frame and bolted to the body? I think those bolts are either going to break or rip a nice new hole the first time it flexes real hard.

    Just my 2 cents. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Well my bud did them the same way and they have held up fine on 2 trips. Even jacked the truck up on them with a hi lift to change a tire. We will see.......
