question

Where are with this?

Wr@ngler00 Well if you look under your jeep you will notice there is like a 30 degree break you will have to make in order to get these to mount flush unless you want a gap between the guard itself. If you look at the higher end guards you will see they break at a 90 then there is a 30 or 20 degree break after that before it flatens out again. Or do yuo think this is not a must. Im confused. Or should i just extend the lip no more than 1 or 1.5 inches? If the lip is only 1 inch will this still give me the same protection? Thanks

mr4x4 what angles underneath are you talking about

just take your measurements
then weld the 3/16 steel at a 90 or find some one with a break to bend it
mock it up weld up the tubing then bolt it into place your done if I had a welder I would have already have built some

Wr@ngler00 ya im trying to make some like shrockworks or the spyders. I dont like the square tubing. I want them to also have a tube step. Im starting to think it might be best to just buy them. This nurse i work with knows how to weld and he said materials would cost something like 50 bucks so it is very tempting to build but i dont have a template. The front would be easy to make with cardboard but its the angles underneath that wory me a bit. Thanks for the input guys. If yall know anymore links that would be sweet.
