Mopar Tubular Side Steps

I just bought a set of the Mopar tubular side steps. I bought them used and it appears I am missing the brackets labeled B in this pdf:

http://www.mopar-accessories.com/en-...r.ashx?id=2129

Where can I obtain these parts? Can the stealership get them?

I went ahead and installed them because they look so good, but I'm just not going to put any weight on them without the bracket. I think they are still pretty strong without it, but I don't want to risk bending any metal.

They're M8X1.25, they cost about a buck at any hardware store, or your dealership may have them. I got a set of rock rails without these.
As you thought, don't put any weight on them. You don't want to warp/bend/break anything underneath your shiny new rig
Welcome to the site, by the way Mark W.

Thanks! Do you know what they are actually called? Did the ones you found at the hardware store have the ability to clip inside the body like these do?

I work at a Jeep dealership, so I just walked over to Parts Do the same- show them the picture, and ask for M8 by 1.25. They'll have them. I think they retail for $1.25 each that way- Mark W.

I stopped by the dealership, but they didn't have them. I found some at the local hardware store. I got it all installed and you can tell it is much stronger. Thanks for the help!
