The open end of the V points down with nuts on the tips of the V inside the frame rail. You can see where you nut up to the stud and bolt through to the nuts. The step bracket fits into a channel in the frame bracket with the two bolts you see passing through and tieing them together.









I got the steps from AutoAnything and don't remember exactly what I paid. I had a couple of coupons I applied to the purchase but the retail is on their website. They shipped to me in about 10 days.
Big Daddy - That looks like they are mounted to the back of the rocker panels to me. Are you sure those steps/bars are tied back to the frame? This has been my biggest concern with these (& the N-Fabs as well) - If you ever hit anything with them, all the force is transferred to the body/rocker panel and not to the frame.

Barnyard - I stand corrected. Thanks for catching that, it is the back side of the rocker panel.

But I think that is where all of the side steps you are going to find bolt up. I did hit a high curb hard enough to with my old steps (damn parking decks and tight turns) to jerk my truck around and it didn't do any damage, other than dinging the step on that side, to the rocker panel. May have just been lucky but hopefully it's a little beefier than first blush.
