Yes they are. They changed their design, I got these a few months ago. I'm happy with them. FedEx dropped the box and scraped them up so e-autogrilles gave me a $100 refund which was fair.

I'm happy with them. The install was easy and the hardware was good quality. I liked these because they come up higher than other rocker protection. I had some trail rash that was easier to cover than fix. These will prevent future rash as well.

I adjusted my door strikers.

Old doors were stolen and new doors didn't fit 100% correctly. For the most part I had an even gap all the way around the door. The issue was that the top/rear of the door jutted out into the wind a 1/4" or so. I had excessive door rattle with the slightest of city pot hole/bumps and a good amount of wind "howl" at hwy speeds. A good gravely wash board road made the door rattle non-stop.

I searched this forum for good bit and found out that the strikers, didn't even know their name before the search, were in fact adjustable. My up/down and for/aft were solid so I was glad I didn't have to go and attempt busting the door hinge nuts free as my doors have been twice painted and I dread all torx bolts. Results are a good 90% less door rattle on the bumps. I can no longer see daylight between my door seal and body. I didn't get up to hwy speed, but I am hoping for that whistling wind noise in my ear to be gone. It reminded me of those silly deer whistle things people use to put on car bumpers.

I also cleaned and sanded up 2 of my 5 rims for painting.

Beer time.

Me too, but on my spare shafts. Messed up one seal so I need to replace it again.

Mine were siezed in place. The ujoint tool just bogged down the impact wrench. Bfh did nothing. I had to add heat. I can't imagine what guys with rust go through. They went in easily, just getting them out was a pita. Prolly would have been easier if I had a big *** socket to take the unit bearings off the shaft. The drivers side joint was siezed in place, almost like the needle bearings(which were dry) started to weld to the cross.

Ordered some F-250 front shock mounts to gain about 4 inches of shock height in the front. Too bad my shocks are only 1.5" too long... Ima order some shock pin extenders for the time being until I kill these ranchos

Mine took some mighty whacks from the BFH since they were used. I wish I had a ujoint tool for the install. I didn't realize some needle bearings must have gotten pushed down or fallen down from the first blow of the hammer and I had to take it off. That's when I messed up the seal. I'm going to get a ujoint tool for the new joint. I need to do my ball joints anyway.

You got a discount because your rocker guards were scraped up?

That's a pretty good deal!

O/T, we got 3" of snow in Northern Maine today, so I mounted my Fisher plow and cleared the driveway for the first time this year!

Pulled the cat and muffler trying to figure out where this annoying rattle noise is coming from. Turns out to be the rear driveshaft. No DS, no noise. So now I'm driving around in front wheel drive until I can figure this problem out.

It feels weird, doesn't it? I had to roll FWD weekend before last until my TW shaft came in.
