    Default Boatside rockers and other armor

    finally decided to get started on the Boat Sides as part 1 of winter projects.
    with AtoZ Fab rockers. (for sale by the way)

    after cutting. no turning back now.

    testing some metal i bent to check how bends will fit.


    full piece setup

    still need to trim the rear corners.

    decided to take off more of rear corners.

    blended the rear corners to meet the rockers and cut the rear up 1.5" higher. now i can lower the jeep another 2 or 3 inches.

    made new body mounts (still need shorter body bolts and a bit more trimming on the rubber)

    closed the tub back off to keep the elements out.



    got to pick up some bed liner to blend it all back in.



    decided to make some tub protection to go above the rockers around the "Jeep"



    got everything sanded down and ready for paint



    now that i cut the back more i get to finally make my drop down tailgate i have wanted for years.
