Wouldn't be a bad idea Dan - it's definitely been done.

However, there's a reason that sliders make you lose a bit of clearance....saves your unibody rail. Make your sliders lower than the rail, and you can save yer butt

Save from what? denting my rockers? Oops, not ANOTHER dent....

I am going to look at using a length of 5" channel and stitching it on to the rockers. Hmmm, more tomorow on that....

Dan, your rockers have been gone for a looong time

I'm referring to the unibody rail that sits about 2.5" or more lower than your rockers

Gotcha. They have been mostly reinforced w/ my 4 link. I will protect them as well along with a new t case skid and front and rear bumpers.

There is 8 self tapping bolts per side that go into the unibody and 5 bolts that mount to the pinch seam. Check JCRs website and look at the instructions and you can see how they mount.

Dan, I think doing cut-out rockers would be a great idea. Check out these links:

(note: these are just ideas, and I know you will do better welding!)

There are also a few links in the last thread that have some ideas.
