Oh okay. I was thinking drill out rivets but then I'd have holes in my tub and I didn't want to grind it off because I'm not gonna do rock sliders yet (more than likely will mess up paint if I grind it). Let me know if you figure out the best way.[/QUOTE]

I just grinded the head off my rivets and knocked them out with a center punch. I left side trim on mine till I installed my rokmen sliders.

Thanks for the input. I think I'll do that too. Might be able to get sliders soon.

Yeah I agree now. Maybe skyjacker. I tried on some 33s and they fit with very little rubbing. Probably going to try and run 32s for now though.

Darn steering box went caput. Too impatient to look for the Durango box so just threw in another remanufactured one.

Well this build is going to speed up some hopefully. My frame is toast. Rusted through in parts so I'm in the market for a frame and I am going to build this from the ground up. Here is how she sits today.
