Side steps or whaterever

So, I haven't posted in a while because I was having fun with my Challenger...I just sold that and am way happier now that I am back to the jeep. I decided to make my own Side steps/rocks sliders. I need your input. I am using the stock brackets that came with the jeep side steps and the I am going to weld 2" tubed on those as so..I need your opinion..should I put the tubed on top of the brackets or...on the side?

So here is a pic of one option


here is another option that will keep everything flush, let me know.


Those brackets will be cut back about an 1 inch and a quarter so it is closer to the body of the jeep. Let me know what you guys think, thank you

I am leaning towards flushing them out like in the bottom pic. Its just when I finally do put in a body lift with my suspension lift im going to have to rig something up so it doesn't look flunky/. any input would be great as Id like to start the fab work tomorrow.

I like the look of them flush with the body. I think you should add some more support for the tube though, especially if you plan to use them as sliders and swing around trees or otherwise have the weight of the jeep on them. Those stock mounts are designed just for a step.

I'd say flush, but I'd agree it should probably be reinforced more. Looks good though. Question, are those stock fender flares or are they cut down?
