I just used some 12 gauge steel plating welded some studs on the back and used the existing holes from my steps I got rid of to bolt em up

I cut em cause my bolts were stuck I have the Sahara and it had the flares that connected to the steps I removed . I plan on getting bushwacker flat flares soon should just go right over them but here's what it looks like

It was really easy I decided to do them after I lined my tub and didn't want to put the old steps back on and I needed to cover up the holes so I figured use them for the guards took maybe an hour to weld and cut probably only cost me 45$

I like thoes to. Did u bend that pipe and weld it? I thing I just might do that to mine. I like the looks of the pipe. They would match my back bumper

yeah had a buddy do it for me, i think its 1 1/4 tubing and gives a little extra protection keeping me off trees and rocks and if they get scuffed up i just shootem with some more black paint.
