ZJ rocker protection rubicon style

I made myself some diamond plate rocker protection. Most of the wrangler guys would call it boat side I think but to me they look a lot like the rubicon stock ones(not what I had in mind when I started but I cant complain).
They are made of 3/16 diamond plat cut and welded to exactly fit the shape of the rocker. Welded onto the top of the rocker and the pinch seam. I also put some body filler on top to make it a little smoother.
Painted everything with duplicolor truck bed liner(I thought I would get more texture but I guess its ok for now.) I will be adding tube steps and end caps eventually.
thought this might help someone in the future and hope the rest of you enjoy it.

So you just welded them directly to the rocker panel or did you run some supports down to the uniframe?

they are welded right on all the way across the top and then to the pinch seem along the botom. I thought about putting braces to the unibody but didnt see much use for them. do you think it would stiffen up the whole jeep a little and take some of the natural twisting out while flexing? thanks for the imput

They will probably work well on light hits on rocks, and are good to prevent scrapes and stuff, but drop off the front tire just once straight onto the rocker and they will still be all up in your doors.
