maybe a dumb question but when people plate there frame are they running like 1/4" or 3/8" plate all the way down the part of the frame rail that lays on the ground? or putting like 4-5" etc plates on the bottom of the frame in places? just curious.. i put some like 6" pieces of 1/4" plate on the front n rear part of the frame rail that lays out.. can you buy long strips of like 3/8" plate thats like 2" wide?

No he means plating the bottom of the frame, to drag. So you don't drag through the frame its self..

I do not know what people usually do tho..

yeah just the bottom.. in already drug through enough so pretty much the whole bottom of frame is almost seperated from the sides.. so i had to plate it to keep it together but now i want to plate the whole frame.. i dont like seeing space under the truck when layed out with spacers in certain spots:haha:
