    Been working on these on and off for a few weeks. 3/16 mounting plates. 1.75" x .120 wall tubing. Not intended for hardcore rock crawling, but they're pretty beefy. 100% bolt on using existing holes. They sit about 1" above the bottom of the frame and wrap around the frame and clamp on the back similar to some other name brand sliders. Right side is almost done, still needs some gussets. Left side is all cut and ready to put together. slider03.jpg slider04.jpg slider06.jpg slider09.jpg slider12.jpg slider14.jpg

    I likey! I'm a fan of square tubing sliders. Yours look similar to the Demello Rock Crusher sliders.

    I looked at a bunch of different sliders when I was designing these, and the demellos were one of them. I think the square will make a better step than the round outer tube. Plus I don't have a tube bender

    I'm tempted to try something like this but I'd need a lot more practice.

    How much did the steel tube cost you? I'm thinking it's probably 6-7 dollars a foot if it's local, and you used about 35 feet maybe 40?

    It was around $275 for 50' of tube and 20' of 3/16x4 for the mounting plates and gussets.

    Nice job. Look very similar to mine that I made last year. Full length, bolt on, same idea.

    Those came out amazing...OP and Kevin's as well.

    Makes me jealous that I do not possess such skills.
