How do these Iron Cross running boards attach? Do they go to a Frame/Body mount or do they use the same mounts as the stock units?

Are they stronger than stock?

Good Lord yes, just look at them... there is no way these are going anywhere. I would go out on a limb and say you might even be able to use them as a jacking point in an emergency... anyone agree? I think the main issue would be the mounting hardware more than anything though. As long as you are running good nuts and bolts and everything is reinforced well they should hold damn near anything. If I am incorrect though please tell me as ignorance is dangerous.

And here I am broke in the play money department after buying parts for the 496 BBC I'm building for the Chevelle... ugh. Mark, I feel that you should increase your order number to a quantity of 2 Those are some sweet looking steps.

Unless my maths are wrong, jacking up an 8300lbs truck on running boards that are held on with five measily 5/16 bolts regardless of Grade would prove to be a really, REALLY bad idea. Not to mention they install in the stock body panel and pinchweld, which I doubt would be beefy enough to take the stress and weight and leverage exerted.
Rock sliders (aftermarket) on Jeeps and such can be used as a jack point, but they are designed to take the vehicles weight slamming down on them against a rock, and not just the weight of some fatty getting into their rig. My rock sliders mounted using 10 Gr-8 11/16 bolts on the main feet, and 5 Gr-8 9/16 bolts down the pinchseam. They also had a support bar that ran tight against the rocker panel and under the body to dispersed the weight and impact forces.

I was thinking that these used grade 8 bolts as well and for some reason was thinking that they bolted to the frame, not the pinch welds. I'm sure you could jack from them.... once

So are we up to 30 now? Medcac is buying mine and like 15 others now so what are we up to?

After looking at the instructions above, I agree.

tsmall07 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Definitely not a jack point, but very cool. Not the right time for me right now, however.

Mecdac, you are seriously in for 2. Just making sure.

EDIT: Just re-read your previous post again (and paid it actual attention) so I got you down for 2 now What's the zip for the set bound for Houston?
