For our CJ-7, we began at the A-pillar, using 1 3/4-inch, 0.120-wall DOM. Like the Synergy Suspension kit, we decided to make them two-piece and tie them together with 4-inch sleeve. Make your first bend slowly and a few degrees at a time, removing and checking the bend contour until it’s right. We started our build at the floor, kicking the A-pillar tube back a few degrees at the dash. Once we got the driver’s side perfect, we matched the bend for the passenger side. We were rushing and forgot to round off the foot plate corners to help resist punch-through in a rollover. We later pulled them out and radiused the sharp corners.
