My 97 and 98 didn't have the rectangular holes cut in the underside of the rocker panels, but my 02 does, salt loves to sit in there so some of you may want to check it out a little more often.

I'm pretty sure the 2 door extended cabs don't have them though. I know the 4dr ones do, and it is pretty much just to clean it out

X2. If the holes werent there the salt/ mud would just find a way in and sit there. Atleast this way it washes out.
