I just picked up some 3" x 5" 1/4" steel to make some easy rock sliders for my YJ and my buddy's TJ. The plan was to mount them with a piece of 2" 1/4" flat bar on the inside of the body as backing. We've found a problem on his ride, though...
As further evidence that Jeep ran out of good ideas when they began making TJs, we've found that the floor section of his body pan extends below the edge of his rockers (see pic) by about 1/2 an inch.
The way I see it we have two choices:
1) Notch out the 3" section of the angle steel to accommodate the floor dip
2) Mount the sliders about a 1/2" inch lower to accommodate the floor dip
I'm leaning towards option 1 as I don't like the idea of having a gap between the body and the sliders. Thoughts?
