Genright AL rocker guards

Finally got these installed after sitting in my garage for months. I got them to essentially cover a dent in the passenger side between the front and rear doors. Covered it perfectly!

They are just rattle-canned, but I'll likely pull them off and put some bedline-type coating on at some point.

Install was a bit of a bitch for 2 reasons...

1) rivnuts.... hate them. Got pretty good working with them towards the end, but even then, had a few that just did not want to get tight enough to not spin.

2) Aligning all the holes for the big part that wraps around the bottom. Essentially all 3 components have to line up perfectly for all bolts on the step section to go in right. There isn't much play in the holes, so you have to be spot on. I enlarged the holes a bit to help, but it was still a challenge.

Overall... well worth the effort.

Talk to me about the "traction aid" you added to the sliders. They look great!!

Sorry... been traveling for work and didn't log in for a bit.

That' pretty much it, but I got them at Harbor Freight. I trimmed them down to fit, and cut out the holes for the bolts. I need to figure out a better method to cut the holes for the bolts because they are rough, but you don't really notice IMHO, so I won't worry about it for awhile.

One thing I'll probably end up doing is refinishing the angled part underneath and the very edge with a coating of bedliner or something similar. Rocks will get thrown up and ding the paint pretty easily I expect.
