    For you guys that welded on your own is there any specific way you did it or a method as it how you should do it, meaning one preference over another?

    I just clamped them tight to the frame and welded them out with .030 wire. They didn’t fit as well as I’d would have liked but good enough.

    Just make sure you give yourself at least an inch of Room between the slider and the body of the Jeep. They do flex a little bit and if they're too close to the body they will hit when you hit a rock.

    I think 1 in. is to much. The mounting plate would be hanging below the frame. I think 1/2 in. space from pinch seam is what you want. https://wayalife.com/showthread.php/...o-Rock-sliders

    The sliders don’t flex at all. The rubber body mounts are what flex.

    Good to know. I did a half inch spacing all around. I can barley slide my fingers in between the mount and body.

    Did you guys weld all they way around the mount and in the holes of the mounting plates?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
