Hey guys, just started my first welding and fabrication project - rocksliders - it's quite the steep learning curve. I was wondering how you guys attach or would attach yours to the chassis? I've read a lot from yanks about putting in diamond plates etc.

Also are there any rules on gusset lengths I should know about?

Forgive my welding, I'm getting there slowly.ImageImageImage

I can’t answer any questions on welding, but what you’ve done looks bloody sexy! :gr8:

i have mine bolt on to the chassis
If you weld them at the chassis it can bent the chassis ore brake it at the weld
You have to make sur there are solid but with a litle bit of flex

Looking good Scot. :gr8: Better to bolt them on as that way you can engineer the fixings to bend or break before damaging the chassis. Drainage holes are also a good idea as the water always seems to get in somewhere and loves to rust it's way out. Welding looks good, round tube is always a challenge. :yes:

Bit of an update, I’ve been shooting in South Korea for a bit so progress has been a bit slower than I’d hoped - however 1 is pretty much complete now (they might have been a little over engineered!), my welding is getting better but I still have some way to go.
