Here are my questions:

Is there any drilling required or do they use existing holes?
Is hardware included with the purchase?
Do you offer a discount for TW members?
Thanks in advance for your help. Oh and this is for a 1st gen ext cab.
Sorry for the delay in answering your questions.
Our rock guards can be secured with the included hardware, but it does require drilling of your frame. Whether bolted on or welded on, they are definately strong enough to be used as a step, but if you plan on using your truck in situations where the full weight of the truck is on the rock guard, we recommend welding the on, which is a much easier installation anyway.
Alot of people ask us for forum discounts, but the truth is that 95% of our customer belong to one forum or another, so it isn't feasible to offer a "forum" discount, but we do post forum specific specials and group buys.
(But look for a price reduction on all of our Tacoma rock guards soon!
