    I finally got around to changing these out about a year ago, they served me well. If we weren't a few states apart, you'd be welcome to them.

    If you would be up for shipping I would to 81007. Let me know on price if so.

    I can check into it, I've never shipped any thing that big or heavy before. I'll try to figure out something.
    They aren't as pretty now as they were in the pics, they've got a few pretty good gouges, and the mounts have had to be straightened a few times over the years.

    Shoot me some pics! Fastenal will ship and can have receiver pay for bill as well...from what I have read.

    I just looked in to fastenal for shipping, you are correct as far as paying at either end. You go to their website and go to services then third party logistics, fill out your info and weight and size of what you are shipping and they email you the price

    I will try to get you a few pics tomorrow afternoon, I'll also check into fastenal, it looks like there's a few around me, or at least a few I could get to in my work travels.

    I can't get pics to attach in PM from the app, no biggie. After I started taking pics, I figured it may be better to post them back in this thread so others can see the end result as well.
    I did manage to get some minor body damage to the rocker panels using the cut down Rubi rails. As I was taking the pics, I started to wonder if Overlander was onto something when he posted at the beginning of this thread about the possibility of the contours being different between the 2 & 4 door.
    The rocker panels on both sides got pushed in a bit, neither from what I'd consider a hard hit, actually on the drivers side, I knew I was going to be on it, and set the jeep down as easy as I could. The passenger side was kind a glance off a rock I misjudged, but still not like dropping the full weight of the jeep on it. After that one I had to straighten the mounts, as the rail was up in front.
    Anyway, here's a few pics of what they look like now, and the damage on my rockers as well. The rails could be hit with a fresh coat of paint and probably look pretty good again. As for my rockers, I may get skins at some point down the road, but for now it doesn't bother me much, you have to look for the damage. Anyway, It adds character right?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
