Not at all and the way those are fastened to the sills, I'm not sure it would even be necessary. They have a "block" for lack of a better term that fits into the square section on the bottom of the rocker and there are 6 bolts that go down through the rocker and into the mounts. They're solid. Brian said he thought he might have to add some bolts back through the vertical rib under the cab, but they were so solid he never bothered. I took pictures in case I decide to build my own.

If it isn't under warranty, I'll fix it myself.

Yeah, I'm not keen on mounting anything to the body, always a rust starter here in the NorthEast. I'm figuring something triangulated to bolt to the frame ether flat stock or round w a half or 1/4 C to weld the tube to..

Yeah, but that is ALOT of $$ to then modify them. Just make your own and save about $400

Personally, I bought the cab length N-Fab bars necause I was worried that the wheel to wheel length ones would do some damage with the frame flex. I thought I wanted them in stainless, but they were not available for the OBS in cab length stainless. I got the black powder coated ones. "ALOT of $$$ ?? 4wheelonline.com has them for $369.00 that is where I got mine

Your right.. Way cheaper to make some.. Pretty simple design..
I'd still like to see some using the frame as a mount instead of the body tho..

Well at least not to do it the wrong way.. I've seen plenty of rocker guards land on bolders and not move. That being said I'm convinced that bolting them to the frame is the way to go.. I'd still like to see some...

That is a days pay to me. So I would rather build them from scratch and have them the way I want and NOT have them bolt to the body

Hey yall sorry I'm just getting around to uploading pics. I have been super busy and never think about it when I have a chance to take pics. Well I was under my truck today working on it and and thought about it. So here are a couple quick pics of them.







I know I need to get some paint on them.
