its pretty straight forward....something like three or four right angled brackets that bolt into the backside of the rocker panel . Nothing really hidden from sight.
When i removed my running boards i got some used front ones from ebay for like 10 bucks and slapped them on. I dont see why you really need them but they may help with rock flying up into the rocker.
I'm thinking of taking my rears off though as i think it looks better w/o them.
Two choices up front - mud flaps (used or from Cdan) or flare caps from Slee. Don't know if Christo has the caps on the website yet, but a little search on a thread from me regarding sliders will find the caps of which I speak. hehehe
Oh Yea - very straight forward removal. Three right angle holders each side with two bolts each. Careful of the PS front if exhaust is hot.
I would gladly sell them to you! You'll also notice that LR_RESQ is selling his, but I'll bet that I'm closer to you (I'm in Dallas Texas) than he is - Portland Oregon!!!
They need to be painted probably, but they're physically in good shape. This car belonged to a soccer mom before me, so there's no cracks in them at all. I guess I'd ask $150 for the pair...let me know!
