jeep TJ rockslider help?

Hey guys, its been awhile. finally starting to dig back into the TJ and going to be working on the CJ again.

Here's the deal, I'm taking this welding class so I have to come up with a project. figuring I'll take advantage of the class time and the extra tools to match to make some rock sliders for the TJ. I found a plan online at jeepforskin.com but its for a YJ. Its the flush mount to the rockers like Shrockworks and other pro-made sliders. I just realized though that the underbody/frame work is a little different on the TJ.

TJ's frame dips below the tub about halfway down the rocker panel. need some ideas (or a new plan) to remedy this. so anyone got any suggestions or plans? attached is the plan I found. let me know what you think...

Thanks,
Fox

You know, I fabbed a set of sliders for my Jeep - similar to the link referenced in this thread. I went the custom route since I wanted protection from wheelwell to wheelwell. All of the other sliders I've seen had cutouts where your fender flares go? Personally I'd rather notch the plastic fender flare to fit over the slider, than to have the slider stop at the plastic fender flare. Anyway, I went a step further and wrapped the front of the slider up into the wheel well about 4" (or as tall as the slider is on the outside of the Jeep) and don't regret it at all. I'll try to be sure to get some photos of my sliders in my photo shoot of my Jeep so the pictures can do the talking.

I'd like to see those pictures! I'm mainly conserned about the under body construction on how to tie these in with everything... having a hard time trying to figure out what to do about angles and such. for those of you who have sliders on your jeep please post pictures of them, looking for under body shots and underbody tie in's...

thanks,
FoX

ended up not building mine, priced everything out and it was only going to be about $75 less than the Rokmen ones I wanted... steel up here is so expensive...

here is the blue torch sliders I got, no tube. the metal is bare so I had to sand them nicely before I applied some bed liner spray paint. I used 3 cans and I think it will be enough. I still didn't mount them...

why haven't you mounted them? if you want to get rid of them they would go perfect with my growing amount of parts waiting to be installed in my garage...
