I spoke with them on the phone about it. Great looking setup, but built to the rig, not the masses. You have to bring in your jeep for a custom fitting, which is understandable.

But no "kit" that could be ordered. I'm holding out for Gen-Right's full boatsides. Hopefully they will be out by the end of the year.

Yeah, but for the faber it should not be to bad to set up. The bending is the hard part the sheet metal work is a pain, but could be done.

Genright said they would also have some boat sides out at the beginning of this year and that didn't happen...

Needless to say I want some boat sides that don't interfere with the factory B pillar and seat belt. One of the links that Swag posted is what I want and similar to what B.A.R.K. posted. There is no way someone can tell me that they can't be produced to the masses. It all depends on how crazy people got with their cages and such for them not to work for the "majority" of the Jeep crowd.

I don't have any pics of the inside because like I said, I haven't installed my set yet. I do have some pics Dave sent me. None of them are from the inside, but it shows the extent of the cutting that needs to be done and might give you some idea of what you're looking for. He also said that when he does installs in house that he usually welds back in some 16ga sheet metal to fill the the cut out area before he installs his rockers.

Love the look of boatsides and had originally wanted to do that to mine, but the decided that it was a lot more work than I wanted to do and also cuts a lot of strength out of the tub. Which you alleviate by welding the whole shebang to the frame. Then frame flex will eventually tear the tub to pieces or so I thought, so I did the next best thing and made some semi boatsides, been pretty happy with them, thoroughly tested them on rocks at the Hammers and it does not seem to hurt them a bit.

Do you have any more photos? Did you still clip the corner off the tub?

I'm in the same boat, I love the look of boat sides and if I'm gonna protect/reenforce my rockers, why not clearance them a tad also.
