      i was thinking about the rust forward of the rear wheelwells... and i am really liking the way @Four0Sport did his, I think thats what i am going to do, minus the small kicker tube he has for a step. Just the square tubing.

      I agree, just cut it out and replace with tube
      There is a pinch weld there under the door that is uber strong, with the load spread out it can support the trucks weight nicely

      I would love to "boat side" my bii.......

      The way four0sport has his, I wonder how the doors do with the rocker tube so close to the bottom?

      I wonder if he is ever worried about coming down hard on a rock, and getting trapped in his rig :confused:

      I don't see this rig ever getting into stuff that bad... this rock slider idea is purely for rust removal and ascetics.

      If your just after rust repair, you can just buy the doglegs, and burn them in. Boatsiding is a lot of work (compared to dogleg R&R) to come out properly.

      Damn that's pretty cheap... I might actually do that. I see that they show for the 2DR and at less that 50 bucks that's pretty sweet.

      I wonder what the "slip-on" text means? I might have to give them a call when the time comes to repair that and get it painted. Spoke to a body guy and he said that denatured alcohol will remove most of that primer if it is just aerosol rattle can. and whatever wont come off (most likely the hood and roof, because of the clear coat coming off) that we can paint to match it.

      I can see on the inside of the front fenders (at the hood) where it is still OEM forest green and its a night color so I think I am going to keep it that way. BUT again that is far down the list of things to do
