Where they attach to the frame, I'd make that an L-bracket and drill a hole through the bottom of the bracket and the bottom of the frame for strength.

If you need sliders, it's definitely worth it to protect costly body damage. If you plan on actually using them as sliders, I would add the lower leg to help reinforce the connection point to the frame. Those look similar to Demello rock crusher sliders, beefy!

If you're just looking for a lateral load (sliding into something), then the L-bracket might not be necessary but if you're going to make sliders, might as well make them take the abuse sliders are meant to take. I believe all bolt on sliders have at least one L bracket that bolts to the underside of the frame. Otherwise, use high quality hardware so that's not the weak point of your setup. Personally, I bought BAMF sliders, had them set fairly flat so they stick out a bit more and he also designs his so they taper out toward the rear. Just make sure they stick out far enough to prevent the damage they're designed to prevent.
