Fabbing some parts for my Jeep

Just cross posting from 4wdevolution to be a picture whore....



I was going to buy a pair (range from $200-300 a set), but I decided to makee a pair myself ($93 for box to make 2 sets). I got the drivers side finished (aside from boxing in the ends) in about 2 1/2 hours, I should get the other side done a little faster I hope.

This is my first real fabrication project and my welding improved so much over the course of the day; I never realized how much wire speed affects the quality of a weld. My only complaint is how much slag the flux-core throws around, but as soon as I Herculine it all you won't even be able to tell.

Per side, I used (all 3/16" thickness): 5' of 2"x2", 21" of 2"x1", 2 pieces of 4"x3" plate, and some small pieces of plate for where the sliders attach to th rocker pinch seem and to box in the 2"x2" square.

Mocked up; they actually hang slightly lower after fabbing (to make room for the rocker pinch seem) and out further (more protection):


Half finished:



Finished:



Put my initials in the side for fun, lol:


My decent (better than the bird crap I used to lay) welds:

Re: Fabbing some parts for my Jeep

They just protect the rocker panel so you don't beat the **** out of them every time you bump into a rock, they are just good insurance. Instead of having to replace the door, floor pan, and rocker panel if you fall onto a big rock or brush up against one, your car just slides right over it.

Those welds arent bad man. The kids in my MIG class were doing much worse on steel. Not steel that thick, only a 1/8 inch but regardless, it looked like they were writing in cursive.

Re: Fabbing some parts for my Jeep

Changed my design a little bit, but didn't get to smooth out my welds or make the mounts yet though because it started raining. They stick out about 2 more inches now for extra protection and also act as a step.
