I feel as if it stiffened my XJ up. The ground clearance is well worth it, and there is no doubt in my mind that doing an actual rocker replacement is way stronger. Their is a lot of leverage going on with traditional sliders, and I know you tie into the pinch seam, but that's not enough for my wheeling style .!..!.

Yea! Te dog box came out sweet by the way lol
I built my airboat out of all 1" 3/4" and 1/2"EMT. It can be strong if you build it structurally. Wouldn't suggest using it for a cage haha
