Nerf bar mod

I got a set of Smittybilt nerfs for my truck for next to nothing. Only problem is they're for a 97...mine's a 98.

How hard would it be (and how much would it cost) to cut the existing brackets off and fab/weld on new ones so they will fit? I'm no welder, so I'd have to have someone do it for me.

have you tried fitting them too see how differnt the mounts are from 93-97 and 98-00? I would guess that thats something that probably wouldnt have changed much if at all

I held them up to see how they should mount and the mounting points were WAY different. Unless I just didn't know what I was looking at (which is entirely possible), I'm pretty sure that major surgery is needed.

I'll check again tomorrow and try to get a couple of pics posted.
