I'm at work this weekend and am 11/2 hrs away from my yj. I was hoping someone could give me some measurements on a set of pipe steps or rock rails so I could build them while I'm at work since I have a bender here. Or just the measurement of the door opening and the depth of the frame off the body( I want to attach to frame) thanks for any help.
The smittybilt side armor is a dual purpose accessory that's meant as a good rub rail and a nifty (yes, NIFTY) step. I like the protrusion because I tend to rub rocks as soon as they come off my tires and when running doors they are protected too.
The width of the body to the frame is not linear beneath the door openings, so attempting to build 'em with varying depths is not going to work well without it being there for you to take accurate measurements.
I basically need to know where to put the 90°s at. But I'll wait til I get home and bend them out next weekend and go ahead and make full sliders. That way I can look cool while at the mall. Who's got time to go to the mall anyway? Sheesh
In that case - ~9" & ~12" should work depending on where the beginning and trailing edges are located. The frame gets narrower towards the front, so that end will be a longer distance from tub edge to frame edge. The 9/12 are approximate distances from the outer side of the frame to the edge of the tub below the door opening.
The door opening is ~36" depending where you measure from.
