Laredo rocker trim bolt layout

I'm in the process of prepping my cj7 for paint and I have plans to add the Laredo rocker trim hole before I paint. I have searched, but have been unable to find the hole pattern layout and size. Can anybody provide hole locations and size?

Thanks,

Brian H

Left to right locations aren't real critical because the bolts slide in a track, so they're adjustable. I don't have a vertical measurement for you but I can say the bolts are 1/4", and expensive if you use the factory type. Do a search for "rocker trim" for ideas on alternative bolts that are much cheaper. I made my own.
If'n I remember I'll check that measurement tonight.

Use elevator bolts instead of OEM as you'll save money and time trying to track a set down.

I don't have measurements, but there are 4 holes in the tub and 1 in the front fender on each side.

I would have to remove my side steps and rocker panels to give you measurements but I'm away on businees trips for awhile and that means I'm away from the Jeep.

I just bought an 82 Laredo. No rocker trim but the factory holes are still there. If I measured them would that help you?

Keith... I see 5 holes there, 4 on the tub and 1 on the fender.

Coldsteel, that'd be great as I need the measurements for my restore as well since my original tub that had the Laredo rocker trim is long gone

I do see someone on eBay is now selling the T bolts at a better price than what was previously offered. He appears to have a lot of the other hardware on CJ's as well even though some of his items marked as "Correct" really aren't exactly like the originals. Also the grille mount rubber he has appears to have poly bushing instead of the "Correct" original rubber.

Yep, that's right. Apparently I can't count either!

Ok, plan to work on jeep all day tomorrow. I'll pull measurements and see if I can think of a way to understandably convey them to you!

The easiest way would be to measure from the front tub firewall back for each of the 4 holes and then the other way for the fender though that one is not as critical. Give each hole a measurement from the firewall and not the distance between each of the holes. Sorta of using the firewall as the center line so to speak.

And how far up from the bottom lip of the tub as well.

4, 5, 6.. It doesn't matter. Two would probably hold it on good enough. I remember the first repaint of my Jeep in 1993 I think I ended up with three of the T bolts on each side holding the moulding on as the others broke when I removed them.

That's perfect. Thanks for thanks for working on those measurements. I really like the stock look and not the diamond plate trim look, that's why I want the stock rocker covers.

Brian.

I apologize, plans did not work out like I had planned and was able to get to Jeep this weekend. I will be happy to do it today. It should on take a few minutes! Should be posted by early afternoon.
