Got some better daytime pics of my finished rockers and flares. Only had to mod the bottom of the rear flares to fit the MC rockers, which was easy with a Dremel.

They are almost too pretty to scratch. I wonder why they don't go wheel well to wheel well though. I'm guessing they are designed to go with the fenders. Look good though.

They do make a stock cut of the rockers, but I'm thinking he has future plans of putting on the fenders.

It rides better than it did before. Granted the shocks that were on it before were completely shot, but it is better.

Yes I put it on everything. Really gobbed it on the shock bolts.

And yes I know about the reduced torque. And as for them coming out I PBlasted the crap out of them. Focused on the top nut which you can see if the inner fenders are removed. Then I used a relatively small 3/8 drive ratchet and was very gentle.

Changed the transmission and t-case fluids. These were most likely the factory fluids from 10 years 66,000 miles ago. The 5 speed transmission is noticeably quieter and smoother!
