But yes the covers running along the sills needs to come off. I made some aluminum plates to replace them.
the Ali covers bolt to the running board via unistrut nuts and to treadserts in the chassis.
If you don't do dirt roads it may not be an issue but the air suspension pump and air con pipes will be exposed otherwise.
