Default What is the angle steel

What is the angled steel piece, is that a stock mount or an added frame tie in?

It's not stock. It's a brace to connect the frame rail to the 2"x6" rocker. I bought extra 2"x6" steel tube so that I could cut it up and make 2 angle braces for each side.

Stiffeners, supports, and box tubing will greatly strengthen the unibody.

What wall thickness did you use? I like the way yours are done. A lot less cutting but getting the protection needed.

This XJ was for limited off road use so I went with 1/8" wall thickness.

Thanks. Since mine is off-road only I may go thicker wall but it's good to know.
