He was meaning that since his rig has a higher COG he thinks the boat sides would actually cause him to slide over and dump it more so than with the regular rockers on there where they will sit on a rock or ledge and help keep it from going over.

machine that second pic looks like the jeep is sleeping in the mud

AzTJ lol yeah right. They said everything will remain as close to original prices as possible.

mrbigjeep knowing AEV they will probably only be about $10,000

AzTJ The Nth "Smasher Basher" rocker guards give you a "boat side" look without having to hack up your junk. AEV should be offering them for sale at the end of the month or beginning of Jan.

txjcb Boatsides are cool for buggy's but I dig my rocker's

whitebuffalo i think its pretty cool. i considered it but once i started reading about it, it sounds like a PITA to do. i prefer to just get a 12 pack and start sawing $h!t, apparently on this, theres some work involved. To quote the Simpsons: "work was hard, so we quit"

TXST8tj if it didn't require cutting away that whole section of body tub i'm sure more people would do it. i had considered going that route myself, but i think some rocker guards will do just fine for me.

Boat Sides

Was wondering if anybody has ever "boat sided" their Jeep.

Boat siding is where you trim the body tub up several inches and put a rock slider or similar in to help pull the side of the Jeep in for added side clearance.

Here's a sample:


Been considering it (especially since I just used that area as a pivot point over a decent sized boulder recently)...
