    first post, i thought ide share with you guys my current project for my DC tundra.
    and if anyones interested i can make more!

    my background is in desert trucks. my daily was a fully caged V8 ranger i built for many years, but after a while i wanted something nice to drive again.
    my good buddy is ESB mike, anyone in desert racing knows him as THE toyota fabrication god, after a 10year hiatus hes back to designing toyota stuff again. and *hint my tundra wont be stock for too long. however, this build will go a more overland/desert direction. and trust me he has some stuff in the works thats incredible. (follow on insta ESBfabrications)


    About these double cab sliders:

    -80lbs per side
    -10 grade 8 bolts per side, using factory holes. no welding, no drilling required. full bolt-on.
    -tig welded
    -all tubing is .120 wall, mild
    -frame overlay plate strengthens frame from flex and sag
    *solidworks drawings show 10deg kick, i went flat


    IF anyone would like to buy the proto set, im located in san diego. $750 including hardware (around $50). i could use the money to buy more metal and build another 3 sets hopefully!

    easiest way to get ahold of me is instagram, @ skywalker474
    im trying to finish up senior year at cal poly pomona for mechanical engineering so im usually busy but ill check on here!
    Thanks for checking the post!
    cheers

    Thanks @matluth
    im hoping in about a month ill have time to put into the access cab.
    the frame is basically the same, some stuff like rivets, holes for brackets, are just spaced a little different horizontally. and i think i noticed one frame hole isnt there on the access cab that is for the double, so one hole may have to be drilled out on each side.
    definitely way more access cabs out there!
    i had fun making these, if i could build a few more sets, thats some gas&beer money! haha

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    Welcome! I'm also in San Diego, and would have loved to have tried these- but just bought some SDHQ. Love the looks of these-- best characteristics of sdhq and and the all-Pro kick out at the back. I think others may jump at this!!

    I'll post a link to this thread over onto our SoCal BS thread, make sure the local guys get a look.

    Do you want to do other fab-? I know a few guys lookin' to get some custom metal done in the SD and Riverside areas.... If you live here and go to school in Pamona... you'd b accessible to both? :notsure:

    thank you @Sunnier so yeah my parents have a machine shop in san marcos, we do a lot of sub work for waterjet, not our main thing but since we have the equipment. also have a press brake, so if need metal plate cut and bent. im not a pro welder by any means but i try haha. we had a pro welder til this week actually. so yeah i can try to coordinate with schedule going down there, cut stuff and bring parts back. machine table is 24x48in.
    myself personally, no free time right now with engineering for anything else, lucky i even got to sleep last week lol

    I have been looking for sliders for my 2005 DC forever. These are some great looking ones. On the kickout at the rear, could you kick it up so it offered a bit of side protection
