Red face Lund sideboard install issue

Hi all,

Still a n00b, as mentioned here, but I finally got around to installing the
mentioned Lund Running boards, thanks to the 4 day weekend.

I have an issue with mounting, however.

Got it all mounted on the side, but the underpinnings are too short. There are
slots, but not long enough.

So a question for anyone that has mounted a pair of these, are the `93 and the `97
the same set? Can a couple of holes be drilled with a common hand drill?

I know it is a shot in the dark, but worth a try...

I think they are all the same. I have a 93, and most parts fit from 93-97

I did take a peek at the body styles, and they do look exceedingly similar to me.

Maybe the Splash or Stepside models were about 2 inches wider or something, as the bracket
is just short by about that much. I reckon a little drilling action will have to take place.

Maybe time for some tougher bits!

Appreciate the reply, Clinton...
