Thanks,

Brett

Somebody was making reproductions and selling them on Ebay. Other than that your best bet is originals off another Jeep. Good condition originals sell for big bucks, so be prepared.

I have been searching for a good set of these also. No one seems to sell them retail, so you pretty much have to keep your eyes open on the classifieds and local junk yards. They are hard to find so good luck

Those aren't made of aluminum, they are the stainless or powder coated. He is looking for the original aluminum ones, which are very rare as you said.

Which is why I said they are REPRODUCTIONS. Which means "not the original but a close approximation."

Yeah, thanks for defining reproduction for me, I had no idea what that meant. He originally asked about the ALUMINUM rockers which I answered by telling him no one seems to be making ALUMINUM ones.

Don't try and call me out by showing some link to reproduction steel ones when I wasn't talking about steel ones, and then get upset when I defend my self.

But thanks again for the definition, I'll have to remember that.

Those stainless ones may not be too bad. I have found several on ebay that are repro's and one guy that makes them is only about twenty miles from my house. One thing I like about them is they don't uset he rail and t-bolt to mount with. I found a repro on ebay for 130.00 plus freight. It helps to use the correct terminology when googling as well.

There are several Jeepers on JeepsUnlimited.com who are selling OEM rocker panels in the CJ Parts for sale section. I bought a spare set two years ago for next to nothing and they even came with the hard to find "T" bolts.

Built some T-1 sliders.
