Welding

Hey i have done a little welding in my day and was gonna fab up some sliders and such for my truck. But i was wondering some people i have talked to they say you have to take extra care when your welding on a vehicle because you can potentially fry your electrical systems? Just wondering if there's any truth to this and anything else i need to know about welding on vehicles?

I do remove both so there is no possibility of closed loop, also make sure your welder ground is always as close to your welding point as possible.
