JK Rock rails/vertically challenged steps

Ok so I finished my Jeep build and its very tall now, not that I mind but my wife of a whopping 5-5 minds a lot. So, now I have to build "steps" for it. without further ado.

I will post new pictures as I go along.

Materials used:
Base legs to frame-1.5x.250 DOM
straight rail-1.5x.120 DOM
angled tube/step 1.5x.120 ERW

I started off by taking the measurements for the length that I wanted them to be and then cut the straight tubes. I chose 72" as the length so I wouldn't have to worry about interference with my tires. These will be just shy of flush with the outside edge of my fender flares to keep the appearance clean. Once I was satisfied with the spacing on the straight tube I took my measurements for the frame side and cut those tubes. I also decided on an angle for the steps and bent those tubes as well.
