Before you get flamed by others.... Some quick advice is to try the search feature on either the main forum page, or in the Dodge section. I put "Dodge boatsides" in the main forum page. The second thread that was shown in the result was this:
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/dodge...boat-side.html
This thread has description, and really good pics. Hope that helps!

pics or it isn't happening.....

Been a number of guys who wanted or planned to do it, but few have pulled it off or pulled it off well. There is a little meat you can pull off from under the door on the rocker that doesn't require you to cut into the door. I'd start there before going to the next level.

Bajabomber did it on his ill-fated Ram/Mog build:
