Rocker Panal Protection Question

I am looking for a type of rocker guard. As I have it pictured in my head it is 2"x4" atleast 1/8" thick steel that has some sort of step attached or that could be attached easily. It is for a Jeep 2000 TJ. If you have any Ideas of web sites to look at for products like I describe above. Definitly will be used for Rock Crawling!!!!

Thank Yooou
Chris

PS--I Have already riped the ones that came on it-

Tomkin also makes some. They have a picture in the 4WDHardare catalog. Why not make your own?

Re: Rocker Panal Protection Question

Made my own. Measured the rocker area, then all the way back to the center (?) body mount. They go 4 inches up the body, then angle back underneatch all the way to the body mount, kinda like the Currie's. Took my drawing to a steel place, they bent and cut them for me for $70(canadian). Drilled them myself, into the holes that were left over after I took off the sidesteps (YJ).

I made mine out of 1/8 material. If I had to do it over again, I'd use thicker material. Not for more protection, I've dropped them HARD on rocks, only scratches them, but thicker material would resist warping along the body more. Mine warp where the bolt holes are and out where the bolts aren't, so it is slightly wavy along the body and doesn't seal well (yet - got to get some strip rubber seal to try). A thicker rail would not warp as much and therefore seal better. However, more bolts would help, too - I've only got 4 holding them to the body plus the body mount bolts underneath. Most commercial ones have a whole bunch of bolts along the body.

Re: Rocker Panal Protection Question

Mangler has the right idea, in fact that's one of the things I already had planned for this weekend. I took a look at Jaffer's Off-Your-Rocker ones, figured I could get just as much protection for a lot less than the $250 they want, just won't be quite as pretty!
