    Just a few pics of the homemade sliders I'm building. Lot more work then I imagined. Wanted something similar to other builds, but with a little uniqueness. Got the drivers side mounting plate made this weekend. Total of 24 holes drilled in the mounting rail and will have 15 mounting bolts. All bolts going into existing holes in the frame, with exception of two.

    Step bit and Boeing drill lube is the only way to go for all those holes.

    Frame rail is 7'-6" with a custom kick at the end. Serves as a mounting point at the far end.

    Full length view with all holes drilled out for OEM frame rivets.

    More pics to come as I make more progress. Only worked for a few hours today, as my body is sore from rolling around under my truck for most of the day yesterday. Think I had the frame rail on-and-off 10-15 times doing dry fits etc. Lots of work but in the end I really enjoy each minute of this fab project.

    Damn, I can imagine how much work that would be. Would be nice if someone just sold already made bolt on mounts to just weld on your own sliders. That would literally save about 20 hours. Can't wait to see it finished Lenny.

    Thanks for that Joon. Although 20 hours seems like a lot of time, my labor rate to myself is a cold beer followed with pure satisfaction ! Keep you updated as I go.......

    Can't wait. Are you using round or square tubes on the outer rail?

    It will be very similar to the P&P slider. Just couldn't bring myself to pay $250-275 for freight. Here is the start of the middle portion that will be under the cab near the pinch seam.
