oh im gonna do it im just wondering what people are using for floor supports.
If no one answers im going to do it anyway and just wing it.

Im just not wanting to reinvent the wheel here.
this is a relativley simple fix that requires alot of work, I just want to make sure its done right.

You don't need much in the way of floor support, especially if you end up tying your cage into your floor. I'd use something simple like angle iron or 2x4 tube cut in half lengthwise.

If your wanting to replace the C channel floor supports that tie the body to the body mounts, I believe they are 14ga. That is what I recall when I fabricated my own body reinforcements that tied the body to the frame mounts.

Standard flooring sheetmetal for the era of Jeep would be 18ga.

As already mentioned angle iron 14-16ga stitched to the bottom/ back side would support the sheet metal.

I don't know if this would work for you, maybe give you an idea but Quadratec sells floor patches for rusted out floor boards. Might save you some time in cutting, forming.
