It looks clean in that pic because it was taken the day I did it. It's rusted a bit now, a year later, so I'd go with an aluminium or a stainless plate not just steel like I did.

If you can find a metal shop that has some scrap around maybe they can put a bend on it for you too and you can have rocker guards. Just get them to bend two 5" X 60" pieces and then shape them yourself with a grinder. Make sure you get 1/4" thick plate.
About how much did they cost. I want a pair but already made for the Jeep there expensive

WellsR Lost my side steps as well. Didnt like them and smashed one up pretty good on some trails

Undead-89 Looks like he meant the fender extensions, not the whole fender painted black.

wakeboard223 those are more what i was looking for, thanks for posting Matcheen, I was concerned with taking the side steps off and the paint being crap,and not being able to get them back on.

Also just out of curiosity did you make the black diamond plate, I mean just take ss diamond plate and paint over it,or just buy it, if so how did you attach it back? it looks really clean.

Matcheen I had to leave some of the fenders on, but I lost the side steps too.
