I decider to weld it on so I would not have to drill 8, 1/2" hols in the frame.. It bolted on to 5 stock bolts which held it in place. The whole thing is 1/4 steel power coated as was finished great! I painted the aluminum skins Black to mach my Jeeps colors. Very easy to put on too.

Nice.

?

I know that drilling the frame might void the warranty but what about welding on the frame and probably distemper of the metal (in the eyes of DC). Interesting to know.

If they won't your warranty they will find some reason to void you any ways! We all know that! They have not covered me on a bunch of things all ready.. I have a Dino to fall back on!!!!! :starwars:

I have always heard not to weld on newer frames for that same reason.

Looks good :starwars:

I would be more concerned about the electronics not getting along with the welder. Nice job man, who's rail is that?

As long as teh ground cable for the welder is close to teh welding area, then there should be no isses w/ electronics.
As for the frames, I know on the medium and heavy truck frames, they say not to weld on the flanges of the frame, but you can weld on the main frame. If you weld correctly, the weld and additional bracketry should make up for the distempering on the frame, as long as not too much heat was applied during the welding process (skip welding) and te ground was not far from the welding area.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....
