Im really learning as i go, i was thinking that the pinch seam was going to be stronger than me cutting into the body and welding on it right now. Also this is currently me daily driver so anything i do to it has to be done before work. And the steel i used was free. I think its a great idea though, and may use it later down the road when i can put a cage in it. Thanks

No problemo.. also the box steel rockers with the uniframe tie-ins nicely double as rollcage leg supports if you place the tie-ins at right places. Forgot to mention, nice work on the sliders

Thing is, I've just never been too big of a friend of ground-clearance-robbing bolt-on sliders - DIY or not. It's not how they look, it's how they function Especially on a built Jeep like yours, weld- on versions that replace the sheetmetal rockers usually work better, and can also be built to look better and provide function all at the same time

Thanks for the input, I agree. One day when i dont have to drive this thing to work everyday and can have it sit in my driveway tore apart for an extended period, i may tackle a project like that, but its far down the list of things i plan to slowly add.
