this was my first project for the jeep since getting my welder besides making a cart.

i spent the last week making some rockers for my yj, made out of 4x3x1/4" angle and some 1 3/8" schedule 40. also have some 1/8" sandwhich plates along the inside of the tub.

i did all my cutting with a chop saw and 4 1/2" angle grinder.
All my welding was done with my HH140 FLUX CORE.

i dont have a bender or notcher so i had to work with what i got. i did my notching with a chop saw(which was really hard to get accurate) and cut my steps at an angle at the ends.


unfortunately me being that idiot that i am i didnt take any pics while building but took some right before paint, during and then some mounted. i think they turned out really nice.


cost breakdown:
9' (2) 4 1/2' sections of 4"x3"x1/4" angle~$35
approx 9' of 1 3/8" schedule 40~$6
10' 2"x1/8" for my sandwhich plates(didnt use all of it)~$6
Grade 8 5/16 hardware~ approx $10
black primer and paint~$10

SO GRAND TOTAL $67

Nice job, I like your style, DIY! I get way more satisfaction from building my own stuff, it makes it your own. Keep up the good work.

Those look good man! Im thinking about fabricating some of my own in the near future and im still debating on whether i want to mount mine to the tub or the frame.

Definately let us know how they hold up to some abuse!
