They are full length, attach to the fenders and really are not industrial looking in my opinion. Just the fact that with the fender flares, they don't look right, is why I am selling them...

I think the N-Fabs really look the part and will add that step I am looking for...

It would and I would LOVE these, but at $2300, that's too much for me... Worth the money - not saying that - just that I don't have the coin to pay $2300 for them...

Re: running boards, hoops, rock rails??? Suggestions and pi

Here is a teaser shot....This will give you the jist of the design. The bottom of the rock/rub rails will be made out of 2x2 square tube, the back bump out will be 1.75 and the front hoop will be 1.5. The front hoop will be notched to fit snugly on the 1.75. I will up date with more pics as I go.
