finally got my rocker guards!!!!

my buddy finally came through for me and made me a set of rocker guards for my TJ! only bad thing is, is that he got caught makin them! lol, so he couldnt powder coat them for me. so tommorow im goin to paint them. can anyone post pics on how the store bought rocker guards go on? we have these things called "riv-nuts" at work i was goin to use. its like a collapsable nut that you put in a hole and it makes the hole permantly threaded. i didnt know if that was a safe way to go or not. thanks for any input

If they are body mounted, drill a hole in the tub and put a washer and a nut on the inside and a countersunk bolt on the outside!!

Take a look at the PSC or Shrockworks sites for pics. But as stated above. Countersunk from the outside to a flat washer and nut on the inside of the tub.

button head is fine. they look good and if you have some type of slider bar its not like the heads will be catching anything.

Just touch up the allen heads with black enamel model paint. It's enamel and should last for a good while and so easy to touch up as needed.

Looks good!!
