Installing anti-crush spacer into frame

Need to install some anti-crush spacers into my frame rails for my t'case relocation. Thought about drilling a 1" hole and slotting some 1/2" pipe pieces into the frame & tap into place.

Any other good ideas or suggestions ?

That what I do and then weld them. You obviously only need the large hole on one side.

That's what I was thinking, couple of small holes either side of the bolt hole and a plug weld in each to secure the tube on one end.

Got it done, a few pic's of the process. Drilled some plug weld holes either side of the bolt hole using a washer as a quick guide.




Opened the holes up to just over the 1/2" sch'd 40 pipe wall thickness that I had cut into 72mm long pieces.



Worked the pieces of pipe into the correct location & then plug welded both ends into place.



All in all took about 3hrs from start to finish, well worth the time to do a good job
