Default Mounting Running Boards with Body Mount Bolts

Hey all. I just got in a set of iBoard 4" running boards. I was looking through the instructions and they are mounted using the body mount nuts, not the mounting holes on the rockers. Has anybody mounted a set this way before? Anything I need to be aware of? Any special tools for the body mount bolts? I just don't want to screw something up. Any advice would be appreciated.

When I get a chance I will take a look at mine. Are they the same by chance?

GMCSierrafan,

I looked at your pics. Nice truck BTW. I think yours are mounted to the rockers. I believe the crew cab has 4 rocker mounts but only 3 body mount bolts. I found a video of a guy doing a set of nerf bars on an 07 Dodge on YouTube. It didn't look like he was doing anything special. I asked a body guy who does my state inspections. He just said I'd need a long handled wrench to break them loose, but it shouldn't be too hard. I'll probably give it a try Sunday.

Got it done this afternoon. It was no biggie with the right tools. I'm going to post pics in the Sierra
