Rocker panels

I'm building a set of rocker panels however despite the original purpose mine will be there for hosting side steps primarily and only then for protecting the side panels as I'm not doing a whole lot of offloading and that I do it primarily exploratory trips. So the question for those ever built any of those is what steel should I use for the boards 1/8" or 1/4". As 1/4" seems to be a bit excessive 1/8" seems to be a bit weak to host side steps and for protection functionality. Any thoughts?

95 YJ Rio Grande 2.5L 5-speed (We're at point "A". Where is point "B"? Who gives a sh..!? )
02 Triumph Sprint RS 955i (speed junky)
04 Honda Odyssey EX (parent-mobile)

Go with an 1/8 with a reinforcement on the side steps. Keeps excess stress off the body while entering the jeep
