Ok, next project. Started this one before my trip, didn't get to finish till this week. Damn rain & humidity delayed me as well, but theyre done.
So I bought a piece of 2*3, .250 wall, 16' long, at the scrap steel yard for $50. So I decided to make some steps for the diesel.
Looking at fitment
Deciding where to cut them off at
Has to fit around the bolt for the fender:
Both cut, notches to clear fender bolt closed in
Mocking up legs:
...and all welded up
...and bolted to frame
Next up, steps:
...and for the finishing touch, 2" grip tape.
I know its not ideal for a rock crawler to have that step hanging down, but this thing only gets wheeled if we need a trailer offroad, so it shouldnt be an issue, and they definitely make it easier for my vertically-challenged wife to get in & out, so im calling it a win!
