When I got my Jeep back in the spring I had a few things on my upgrade list.
1. Get it lifted so I added a 2.5" Old Man Emu which ended up lifting about 3 1/2" inches.
2. Had to get side rails to make it easier for my wife and daughter to get in.
3. Replace the stock bumpers.
4. Other things but not important in this thread.
Well after pricing different bumpers and side rails I decided that being a Mechanical Designer by trade maybe I could draw something up. I ended up doing my first welding and metal fabrication and came up with the design below. Materials used were 6x8.2# channel, 2" & 3" s/40 pipe, & 3/16" plate.
