I know what you mean about small projects. Ive almost finished restoring it. All I have left is to insulate and BedTread the tub then the lift and such goes on when I get back to the States. Nice looking TJ though!

In preparation for my rocker guards I know I need to address the small spots of rust. When I took off the small extended flares the bolt holes have rust along with a line of rust under the paint. Since these will be a B to put on I doubt I'll ever take them off if I sold it or traded it in soooo...sand that area and put some type of rustoleum on it to prevent it from getting any worse? Yeah...that's all I got. Any other ideas?

It's a shame these are not attached to a Jeep yet. Soon enough.

The fun has started!

Don't kid yourself about never taking them off. It's easier to take them off than it is to do the install. I've had mine off, to cut them down when I did the Metalcloak Ovelines, it took a lot less time and was way easier than the install. If you play in mud, at all, it's not a bad idea to take them off and give the body a good once over every year or two.

Good luck......watch your head.

This installation takes 15 rivets, I doubt that's removable...right? Unless I punch them out and replace them. Maybe if I ever go muddin' I'll just wrap the mess out of them with cellophane and look super special. ha!

The internal braces, on mine, are riveted, but the sliders only use bolts, so they come off, rather easily. I'd be surprised if your sliders have any rivets and I'm willing to bet the internal brace bolts to the sliders, and is riveted to your floor.

Don't forget to preload the rock sliders before you drill the holes. A floor jack works great.

Putting weight and upwards pressure on it so later when you use the rockers the strength is not onl yin the fastners. THe preload will push the rocker tight to the body and palce it better

2 hours later and driver side is complete!!! I know it probably shouldn't have taken that long, but between doing my step by step videos, breaking 2 bolts, and having to drill out one of the broken rivets...I don't care how long it took...it is seeeeexy! Luckily my bumper hardware came with 2 rivets (still no clue why) so I'm good there. Will need to run up to the hardware store to match up the 2 bolts I broke. I'm in for the night, but I'm happy as can be.

That looks nice, did you paint the holes you drilled? I used rustoleum to seal the newly drilled holes so they wouldn't rust. Maybe I should have mentioned that sooner?

Looks great! I was thinking about getting that style but I may go with the reverse ones. Btw, you know about the HRJC right?
