Part #: ION-710250 Posted on
|I bought these because they satisfied three specific requirements. First, they were offered with 'frame-mount' brackets, which actually mount using the existing body mount bolts, with a rubber-tipped 'kicker' that rests against the frame. No drilling and more importantly, no removal of the plastic rocker panel plugs. Silverados are notorious for rockers and cab corners rotting, so I refuse to mount anything there. These mounts are rock solid..... I'm 6-'3" and 260# and they don't budge. Second, They sit back just far enough to allow OEM front flaps. Not much gets past these boards + flaps. As if that's not enough, there's a gasket similar to a 'weather-strip between the boards and rockers that keeps even more crap from finding it's way up your door panels. Third, they look good. Not quite as 'sporty' as some step rails, and look a little 'old school', but if you want to protect your paint, provide a 'step' for short people, and want to add years to your rockers (especially if you live in the rust belt like I do), these are a good choice. My only complaint is that the mounting brackets could be about 1/2" longer. The boards are pre-drilled for stainless 'carriage' bolts and they hit open 'slots' at both ends of the brackets. I had to add stainless flat washer to ensure good contact with the brackets so I could position the boards exactly where they needed to be. There is some wiggle-room on the body mounts, but that is hard to control if mounting by yourself. I'm definitely glad that I went with these rather than step bars, simply because I want this truck to live longer than me. If I keep pump-spraying used oil into the rockers it probably will. I don't think these would be right for guys that do serious off-road stuff, as they wouldn't fare too well if hit with a rock or stump, but for street use with a little 'back-roading' (usually small stones/gravel/mud where speeds are higher and crap flies everywhere) they are perfect. The black boards like these, which I believe are plastic with an aluminum underside, would be better suited for off-road.|
