Ugg, the rock rails. I think either mine got damaged in shipping or the guy that built mine was drunk. They did not fit that good at all. There was no way in hell the exterior side bolts and the underbody pinch weld bolts were ever going to line up as designed.
Let's just say, I had to Dremel entirely new bolt holes on all the pinch welds underneath. Also, if they made those damn exterior side bolts just 2mm longer the process would have been SO much easier. These rock rails and associated hardware don't seem to be designed/tested well. If there was more attention to detail and install process thought with the kit it would cut the install time in half. With all the custom work I had to do, took about 15 hours total. I made sure I did it to last though, all cuts/mods and hardware was thoroughly coated with anti-rust enamel.
I also sealed up the seam between the car body and the rock rails as I don't like that small gap and water etc running down in there. My favorite part of the rails is they make an easy jack point now for the truck. They are on there like no-ones business. Plus the added benefit of keeping most doors from being able to dent yours.
I will post some pics hopefully when I do the following mods tomorrow:
RRO winch bumper installed
Front-pre-runner skid plate install (cut-out adaptive eye hole)
Air horn install
LED fog light install
Laser jammer and radar detector (front) install
Grill / plasti-dip black / cutout winch remote access in grill
Front tow hooks
Actually I don't know how much of the above I am going to get done tomorrow as I like to do things right the first time. I promise I will post pics, I know threads are boring without pics LOL.
