Fabbing side rails?

Hey All

So I have some contacts that are welders/metal workers by trade. Has anyone fabbed their side steps/sliders for their XJ? If so does anyone have specs on it and how they attached it to their Jeep? I'm not looking to drop a big chunk of change on a pro grade slider because I don't really plan on doing any heavy off roading/crawling (at least at this point anyway) I'm looking more for functionality out of this.

Thanks for your anticipated help!

Sliders should mount to the unibody rails and the pinch seam for best support. Take a look at companies like JCR and AJ's for examples.

Best bet is welding them on, but you can drill and put self tapping bolts into the frame rails as well. Cheap as hell to make too.

For 50 bucks you can have my lag on sliders, they were good for small stuff but flexed too much when taking the full weight of the Jeep.
