built my own rocker guards

I decided to build me a set of rocker guards . I really liked a few of them out on the market but did not want to spend $500 on them. So i was woundering what you guys think of them.

I used herculiner for the paint.

I used 1/8 steel plate and 1 1/2 pipe for the materials

i drilled all the holes then welded the bolts to the plate so when i mounted them you did not see any bolt heads.

Yes it is nice to have a few tools. I had to go to a friends shop to bend the plate. But the rest i did in my own garage/shop

Sorry it took so long to responed .the fenders were like that when I got the jeep three years ago they look great everyone loves them but they are just now starting to peel off. Like a piece of tape I got some bushwacker fenders in order and I'm going to spray them with herculiner as well

You should have tied them into the body mount like most of them are done. It would be better that way. Looks good though.
