jjseel I can attest to the fact that everything holds up pretty good without, as I dropped on a couple of boulders last weekend with no visible effect!

Hey JJ, the new guards look good!

I finally got around to switching out my rubi rocker guards to the Shrockworks sliders yesterday. When I removed the OEM diamond plate guards, I noticed that they used Nutserts in the bottom too. Those were through the bottom sheet metal only. I guess we should have taken one off to look the day you came by. The OEM guards come off and on pretty easy.

Hope that helps, but if those Nutserts are 5.60 ea, it won't be cheap going using them, but might be worth the cost in the long run.

erickpl IF you go to www.stu-offroad.com and look at his writeup on the Toys by Troy side sliders, you can see how he got a nut into those areas where it is hard to get or has multiple layers of sheet metal.

iamagolfspaz Im going to have to hit the dealer for the bottom bolts.
09-20-2007 05:45 PM
jjseel No, they aren't, but the larger washers cover the hole. Sorry so long to answer, I was on a Trip!
09-11-2007 09:33 PM
iamagolfspaz So the bottom screws are not as wide as the 6 holes that are in the Rocker Guard?
09-11-2007 09:06 PM
jjseel I had to drill the holes (sorry, I don't remember the size, I took a nut that fit, and found a bit that the shank would just go through the nut) It took 5 torx screws/bolts for each top side and 6 hex screws w/attached washers on the bottom.

09-11-2007 08:35 PM
jjseel Are they the same as these?
09-11-2007 07:27 PM
iamagolfspaz My side bolts are pretty small and theres 5 or so larger holes on the bottom. The side ones wont fit the bottom.

I am so jealous. Great find!
09-11-2007 05:31 PM
iamagolfspaz What size bolts were on the bottom? I just have the side bolts.

The factory nutserts couldn't be that much stronger. On the bottom, I ran the screws in and they tightened up fine, too. (Except that the SOB that sold them to me said "all hardware included" forgot the nutserts and 2 screws). All in all, I am confident that my TJ has a LITTLE bit more protection on it's rockers than before. Gonna test it this weekend!
fixed it for ya!

jjseel Nutserts 5.60 each! Dang!

Spaz, did you put yours on yet?
08-10-2007 07:04 PM
jjseel In two areas, you can't get to the back side. I am going to go to the dealership and see about ordering stock fasteners.
