since there are no vendors selling rocksliders and the local fab shop wants like 400 for a set of sliders i am just going to have to make my own .
THe problem is i know one guy with a bender and band saw , i know another guy who can weld it. how do i hold it all together to measure and fine tune etc .? If the welder was in the same spot I could weld the brackets to the frame then add one piece at a time .
this is the design i'm going for but the pieces going to the frame a little different.
I have also been thinking about putting a solid piece of diamond plate on the top side of the slider it go from the bottom rail to the top rail and all the way to each end and follow the curve, screw it on. So this way it will protect from brush and pointy rocks from coming up and hitting the vehicle in the area between the top and bottom rails ... I think it would look cool with black tubeing contrasted against the steel. the only thing it it will be hard to clean between the DP and the tube.
I'm not sure if i explained it well but who thinks the diamond plate would look good and who thinks it would look lame ?
