Installing rubicon rocker guards on a non rubi

I found a set on CL and am thinking about putting them on my LJ. They are from an LJ rubicon. Anyone done this? Looks like I just drill 6 hole and bolt them up.

Hope you understand the rocker guards are purely ornamental and offer no protection. Since you are drilling holes in your rig, maybe consider rocker guards made from steel or aluminum instead of plastic.

Rubi guards aren't plastic they are steel and offer plenty of protection, there is a guy on here that actually beefed them up even more and added some tubing to make some slide rails

I could've sworn the rocker guards on my Rubicon were plastic. My bad.

Sahara side moldings are plastic. Rubicon rockers are metal but are not strong as is.
