completely plate around the unibody with thicker steel, 3/16 should work good, and fully weld the seams. make the steel over lap at least an inch, and for added piece of mind you could drill several holes in the steel before you weld it on to plug weld to the unibody rails. the better you plan, the stonger and better the weldments will be. you don't want to hack job the rail too bad, it is the only thing holding the front end of your jeep together, as well as the only thing that really provides adequate collison protection in the advent of an accident.
