|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.|

How would boatsides raise your center of gravity?
BTT - I like the idea and like the look too. I'm not so sure I have the balls to cut up the tub on my rig though but if you do then go for it.

|TeeJay||How do you show off trail damage with those!?!?!? I need my angular corner to inform me that i smacked the sh*t out of my jeep.|

|bluvikng||With a low center of weight, it would be great. When you get one up in the air, like mine, with a higher center of gravity, the tip over factor, goes way up. The standard rockers work great, and keep me from rolling over. Just another point of view........|

|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.|

Here's another couple of examples:

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)...
