side bars aka nerf
 
Anyone one ever install a set of Shrockworks side bars, the ones that have a steel plate under and bolt to it. My question si this, do you have to drill holes in your floor board? I know the web site says you need a drill to install.

Are you talking about the Shrockworks rock sliders?

You have to drill holes into the side and the floor of the body.

yes, but I really don't like the idea of all that drilling, maybe I will look for something else that bolts up with out a drill. Any ideas on a good set? Hey, I was in Munich for two years and all over Gremany, I liked it there.

I put the Warn Rock Sliders on my old one. They did require drilling on the outside but used the drain plug hole in the floor pans for the lower mounting. I would still recommend them even if you have to drill.

there are some bars that bolt up to the frame. but IMO these rock sliders protect the body in a better way. the others will bens if you do some real rock crawling.

These ones bolt to the frame (at the stock sidesteps mount holes ?).

Here is a picture of my old YJ with them installed. It took about an hour to install them. I sprayed some rust resistant primer on the holes that I drilled.
