Yup, drilling new holes and bolting them on. I'm pretty sure that I have to change the tail lights too. they would go good with some front tube fenders also.

Builders kit for the front fenders. Almost done.

Not sure what I'm doing for the rear fenders yet. Definitely going to comp cut them though.

Also built a rear bumper/swing out tire carrier with mounts for the high lift and a Jerry can. No pics of that though.

Gen Rights all around. They're solid. I've scraped them on canyon walls and rubbed them all over rocks and v-notches - like an extension of my sliders. Love 'em.

homemade armor. rockers are machine broke 1/4" plate (2 1/2x 5 1/2" ID), rears are 3/16" x 4" strap (top) with sawzall cut 3/16" plate bottom. had a buddy "roll" some 3/16" for the 3.5" radius corners then welded all together. front fenders are BTF kit "weld it yourself" - you can't make them yourself for what they charge for the kit. rear lower valance is machine broke 3/16" - 2 x 3 1/2" ID welded in for beef and cj tailgate conversion hinge support.

Got the bars built and welded on to my channel this evening going to weld a support off the bottom lip of the channel that will tie into the body mount right under the door then countersink 4 bolts through the channel and body on the top and bottom. Then it will be time to paint and install. The front is straight with the fender seam and the back follows the angle of the fender flare.

Finished my rocker guards with step today. Had to order countersink bolts so these are temporary. There are 4 on the side 2 on the bottom and they also tie into two of the body mounts.
