I have looked into adapting the 08 guards.
It looks like they can be made to fit with a little creative thinking, some light machine work, and maybe a little welding.
I ordered the guards, and the right hand perch/bolt for the guards.
I plan on making the left hand bolt , and that is where some welding might come into play.
When the stuff gets here, and I have a chance to work on it, I will post some pictures of what I have done.
I am fairly confident that I can make these work. The dealer, who is a fair mechanic himself, agrees with me.
I have a lathe and a welder, so I am looking forward to playing with this. If no welding or machining is necessary, I would be happy with that.
It's possible after seeing what I do, some folks here could come up with other ideas as well.
More to come. August
I might add, the reason I plan on making the left hand bolt, is because each bolt costs about 13 dollars, so being a little on the frugal side and enjoying the challenge, I decided to try making the bolt. The right hand bolt has a shoulder cut on it, and it looked like buying that one would probably make sense.
Anybody else think these buffalo wings taste a lot like chicken?
