This includes a stiffener along the bottom rail.
How did you get the moldings off ? are they the plastic push type ? thanks for sharing hope you dont mind that i put a link for this on " WK2 WRIGHT UP2 " this way the next installer can just add a few comments to yours and it will be alot easier for someone to search
the price you paid was great... i cant find them under $780

I bought them direct from my dealer and he gave them to me for a little over cost. They were new then and I was sort of a guinea pig for them. heres a link to another forum i did a write up on. May have a detail or two xtra.http://www.**********.org/showthread.php?t=18429
And if i remember correctly the trim was all push in type!

For some reason it comes up like that when I post it. Should say ********** , but the asterics keep coming up. Hope no rules are broken here!

Not a hostile competitor is it? (ha ha ) Maybe you can PM me if it isn't breaking rules, I'm interested in seeing your writeup.
Thanks

Thanks again, cutting the stock sill molding is whats bothering me. I guess when all the pieces are in front of me It'll make more sense. I have some 3M grip tape left over that I used on my Teraflex rocksliders on the JK, are those tubes big enough for grip tape?
