    Just kinda happened . I was being lazy , and got prodded , ended up doing it .

    One side finished today , other asap .

    OMG it tightens up the body , I only have one side done and I can't hear my body mounts as much as I used to :D

    That and I can fall back on Tj's excuse of too far of a drive :rolleyes:

    That looks awful thick for .120 ... looks more like .250 to me.

    I ended up using 2x6 x .250 for mine. If the rear axle falls off, I can drag it home on those :haha:

    Hey, you're supposed to wait til the night before to do those mods at the last minute. When I did my sliders, it was the night before our Memorial Day weekend in Moab. They made the trip unpainted. :doah:
