Id say with about 80% confidence they will, the cabs are virtually identical from 99+ so if they change the bolts pattern on the body i would be very surprised.

Awsome they did fit, there are three brackets that hold them on. The front and rear ones lines up perfectly. The middle bracket seems to have moved just slightly enough that the bolt holes dont work. I just tapped in two of my own bolts but it didnt really need them.

look good but I am curious about how they will hold up. a lot of the newer pickups around here with those running boards are having the chrome chip off.
