Looking good, do they seem to come to far out? I know your using them as a rock rail/step setup.

Also are you considering putting some kind of grip paint or tape on the top by the doors?

I like the way it came out. Can you take a closeup pick of the rails with the doors open?

Photos are coming. I have some of the install, but it was pretty simple.

1. Mark spots for rivets.
2. Drill rivet holes.
3. Insert rivets and crimp with tool - becoming good with that was probably the hardest part.
4. Attach rail with bolts into rivets.
5. Attach bolts through pinch weld.
6. Repeat on other side.

It took maybe two to three hours - but we also had lunch in there.

More pics will follow once I get 'em straightened out.

They come a bit further out than the fender flares by maybe 1/2" on so (if I recall correctly). Will be good to prevent door bangers in the parking lot. Also, the bed-liner paint that is on there has a fair amount of traction. It rained last night and even the six year old was able to crawl in without slipping (and she is clumsy).
