    What is 'factory style molding?' Do you mean the later chrome trim molding found on Lareado packages? maybe like this under the stripe:

    I have a set on a well rusted CJ7. Wont have it for a while. I will caution that stuff like that is where rust is born. They are held on by small steel studs. Guarantee some studs wont survive the removal. Then you have to shorten for a CJ5.

    Its thin aluminum. With a dremel and a hammer everything is possible.

    There were chrome aftermarket rocker guards available in the day that could have appeared on your Jeep. These were made from angle iron and reinforced the sheet metal edge of the body. You could duplicate that quite easily, if you want some chrome trim along that edge. Not as strong as the "modern" rock rails, but much stronger than the body edge.

    Those aluminum rails were for appearance only, and I'm skeptical that they were ever offered for the CJ-5. More of a liability than an asset, IMO.

    I agree with Tim on this. Though when I get to the CJ7 I'll try to extract them. They are just shiny weak pieces.

    Factory "rocker" guards were available on the CJ5, as well as CJ7 and CJ8.

    Available in either black or bright

    I had the chrome aftermarket ones like Tim describes from Olympic. I have a new set of stainless ones I would be willing to part with. I believe they are Kentrol brand and it appears they are still available from Quadratec as well. They start at the front edge of the tub where the raised lip of the fender ends.

    I had looked at thise but never could find a close up picture though. I might settle with the kentrol if they look close enough to the factory style. Do you mind posting a close up picture?

    These are the Kentrol's you are talking about. Save the Pics of my ' 75 CJ5 & then you can zoom in. ( BTW , these are Stainless Steel. I'm changing them to Black, soon. I am also laying a bead of silicone sealant to the top edge, to keep the water from getting between the body & trim. All told, it will look better on my Rig )

    skip the silicone it traps the water that gets in.and it will get in. coat the back with fluid film or grease before putting them on.

    Thanks for the head's up , Jeff .
    That's the better way to go. Then, when i do my twice a year Fluid Film treatments, I can treat those area's from behind & underneath.
