Parts Included: 

  •   1 Driver Rocker Guard

  •   1 Passenger Rocker Guard

  •   12 M10x1.5 Screws

  •   12 M10 Nylon Lock Nuts

  •   12 Washers 

Installation Instructions: 

1. Before Installation it is recommended to always park the vehicle on level ground and chalk the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling while being worked on. 

2. Locate two rear body mounts. Loosen two rear body mount bolts using a 16mm wrench. (Body mounts can often be very rusty. Spraying bolts with penetrating oil in advance can break up rust and aid in the prevention of the bolts from breaking during loosening). 

3. Using a floor jack, jack the body up to create a small gap between the body mount and body of the vehicle.

4. Using the two notches in the horizontal plate of the rocker guard as a guide, slide the rocker between the loosened body mounts and body of the vehicle.

5. Using clamps, clamp the vertical side of rocker guard flush to the side of the body. 

6. Using the holes in the rocker guards as guides, use the 13/32” drill bit and drill holes through the body of the vehicle. 

7. Place M10x1.5 screws through each hole and place a washer and nylon lock nut on the backside of the body. Each hole gets 1 Screw, 1 Washer, and 1 lock nut. Using a 6mm Allen wrench and a 17mm wrench, tighten down each screw.
