pic request: rock sliders

So me and my father in law are thinking about making some sliders for our jeeps since we have access to steel and he welds pretty often, we have seen pics of lots of different ones but none really show how they mount to the tub from the inside so I'm looking to get some pics or ideas so we can decide how to go about doing this. I was thinking about using a piece of steel on the inside and just a regular nut and bolt but if I can c how other brands do it I may do it different, thanks

Yea I've seen that thread but I'm really looking for interior pics so I can c how those screws are held in, just like sheet metal screws that screw through the tub, if they have a bracket or brace on the inside, or if its just like bolts that are bolted down.

My Rokman sliders use 1/8" x 1 1/2" pieces of aluminum as backup plates for the 5/16" stainless flathead bolts that are bolted through the bottom and the sides of the tub. The installation is solid and they have been over many rocks as well as being used as a jack point.

I made mine from factory rubicon rockers I got for free...

Rockers are held on with nutserts.... but you can use regular hardware for the sides...

My Curries mount the same as the Savvy's do with nutserts in the blind areas and a backing strip of aluminum in the area under the door as seen here.

Seems like those Rokmen sliders don't use nutserts which explains the little strip inside the tub.....
