Although LoD provides all the necessary hardware to install their rocker guards, I decided that I wanted my finished product to look a bit cleaner. So, I headed down to my local hardware store and pick up some stainless steel button head allen bolts, nuts and wider fender washers. I also decided to be smart this time around and bought some Tough Stuff rocker guard gasket material from Mesa4x4 to protect my Jeep from the sand and grit that can get trapped in between the guards and tub. It's your Jeep but these simple additions will make for a much better and cleaner install. Just something to think about. On to the write-up...

Okay, first things first. Take your new LoD Rocker Guards and thoroughly clean the inside (the side that will be in contact with your tub) surface using alcohol or plain water and a rag. Make sure there is no dirt or oil residue left behind.

Unroll your Tough Stuff gasket material, peal the backing off of one end a bit and carefully affix it to the inside of your LoD Rocker Guard. Slowly, continue to peal the backing off and press the gasket on trying to be mindful of bubbles.

3. Using an X-acto or flat razor blade, trim off the excess Tough Stuff gasket material from the edges of your LoD Rocker Guards as well as the mounting holes and "LoD" cut out. Also, if you discover any air bubbles caught in between the gasket material, simply make a small incisions with your razor and press out the air.

4. On to your Jeep. If you have factory side steps or Sahara rocker trim, you will need to remove them at this time. Also, remove the front fender extensions from your tub and then extract the 3 rivets using a pair of pliers.

5. Place your new LoD Rocker Guard up against the side of your Jeep and support it in place with the help of a floor jack and 2x4 pieces of wood. Take care to position the guards carefully making sure they sit flush against your tub.

6. Using your LoD Rocker Guard as a template, mark off the holes you will need to drill out using a center punch and hammer.

7. Take a look inside your Jeep and fold back the carpet so that it doesn't get in the way of anything. Also make sure that nothing is along the inside edge of your tub (i.e. factory jack crank, CB cable, etc.) that might get damaged when you start drilling. Now, using a hand drill and a 3/8" metal drilling bit, drill out the 4 mounting holes on the side of your tub.

8. With your fingers, loosely fasten the Lod Rocker Guard to the side of your Jeep using the stainless steel allen bolts and fender washers and nuts on the inside. The forward most bolt will need to be accessed from under your Jeep just behind the fenders.

9. Now, climb under your Jeep, mark off your bottom mounting points using a center punch and hammer and then drill these holes out as well.

10. Secure the rocker guard in place with the Grade 5 bolts, washers and nuts provided by LoD using a 1/2" socket and wrench.

11. Secure all the side bolts to your tub using a 7/32" Allen wrench and a 9/16" standard wrench.

12. Lower your floor jack and then repeat steps 4-11 on the opposite side of your Jeep.

That's it, you're done!! What a total piece of cake job right? Your Jeep's rockers are now armored up and provide a convenient step for the shorter people in your life :)

That's it. Please let me know if you have any questions.
