Default Re-inforcing XJ unibody

Ive read builds on pirate 4x4, but was curious if anybody here in the PNW has done this yet to strengthen up their unibody for wheeling or bigger mods? Some have used angle iron and some C channel, most welded it some bolted with sleeves. 1/8th and 3/16ths is the thickness they used. Just wondering what has worked for people, and if I can score some pictures to look at and get an idea for my XJ once I return home next month from deployment.
