rocker gaurds/ rock sliders

i'm planning on making some rocker sliders for my xj since my rockers are pretty much gone.


what i was wondering is what size square tubing should i use?

should i weld it right to my frame/unibody whatever its called or use plates and run four bolts through each place?

and last where should i get the tubing from?

if somebody could let me know that would be dope,

and if some of you guys want to post some pics of your rock sliders so i can get some ideas of what i should do.

thanks,

James.

soumds like what i'm doing, it will probably be a while before i do this(broken hand) so i really cant weld or anything else ha, but i was going to buy the steel and lay everything out first. i'll take plenty of pics when i do this

I used 3x5 .125 wall square tube, I cut out the entire rocker and pinch weld and went right to the inner rocker.

I picked up my tube from ALRO, but search around, I think there are better deals to be had.
