Gap Guards

when you get gap guards with a body lift, do they mount to the bed/body and mount to the frame or do they just mount to the body or bed and hang down? i have a big roll of rubber at work and i am going to make my own but i have never seen a set of these installed on anything.

A roll of heavy rubber would work perfectly.. if you look into yoru wheel well.. thats pretty much what a gap guard is.. a heavy rubber that hangs down would work perfectly for it, and save some cash if you try buying yoru own :-)

do you know if they get screwed to the top and bottom or just hang down and get mounted from the top?

Hanging down would work perfectly, all it is doing is hiding the gap caused by the bodylift, get a couple small bolts or some of those plastic clip things and a drill.. and go to town on it :-) Fairly easy to do inside the wheel wells there =)

I made mine out of heavy rubber and mounted them with rivits in the back. The front I used rivits and the factory plastic plugs. Heres some pics of them....

i used rubber tread for steps and screwed it with self tappers under the lip so you couldn't see the screws. been that way for over a year and is working great. plus each step piece was like $3 from home depot.
