    I just got my hands on some 4" square tube and was looking at the prospect of building some nerf bars (mainly to use as slides for what normally would rub the panel). It will almost run the length of the fender openings, my question is where and how to mount these to be most effective. I want these for protection but would also like to use them as a step. I have seen some of the smittybilt tubes mount to the body mounts, is this a good idea or just convenient?

    need some input I only have a welder for the week.

    thanks
    p.s. the help on the door pins and bushings was terrific it took about 20 minutes!!!

    I have a homebuilt one and it's strong.
    If you go to my CK5 page I think you can make them out in one of the pictures in the photo section to.

    Seems like a frame attachment would be a good idea to me. If you could weld a "stub" onto the frame you could pin or bolt the nerfs on. Then if one got too bent up or ya just wanted 'em off for awhile, just unbolt 'em.
