Default 1983 K5 rocker panels

Wasn't positive where to post this, so mods feel free to move if in the wrong section.

The rockers are rusted pretty bad in my k5. I am planning to cut them out and replace them with 3x3 square tubing. It is 3/16 thick. I want to fully weld it to the body the weld cross peices over to the frame. It will kill two birds with one stone, my rockers will be replaced and i will have rock sliders for my off-roading. Does anyone see any problems with this and does anyone have pics of it being done?
