I am rethinking building a pair of body mounted rock sliders for the ecj5. Much in the mode of Posi and Focker, I am thinking of something like 4"x2" (4" up on the side and 2" underwrap) angle iron and then having some sort of additional piece to provide some outward protection. Posi did a set of tube steps and both he and Focker used something like a piece of 3/4x3/4 angle iron to create a sort of triangular extension outward. Just A Little Project Focker's '71 CJ5 Drivable Build I don't think I want the steps - but I do want something like the angle iron for lateral protection. Thinking maybe a piece of C-channel that is 2" high and 1" thick. 2" high would come up halfway along the 4" high sides and the 1" thickness would provide a modicum of protection without sticking out too far (aesthetic preference). I think I would be fine with 2 inches of lateral stick-out as well, but more than that I find looks a bit odd without fender flares and my narrow track with only 10.5 wide tires. Sound reasonable?...So my question...normally these are made with at least 3/16" angle iron and I would probably use 1/8" c-channel, or should I go with 3/16 channel as well. Also wondering if the c-channel piece on the side would that add enough additional strength that I could go with 1/8" for the base angle iron? The underlap edge would be a bit iffy at 1/8" but I might figure out some spacers to go between the underwrap and bottom of the floorpan and bolt through the floor as well as the side.
