Alright... they look good Beard... my question though is how did you do that top bar without a bender? Just heat the tube up and bend it around something?

what size tubing did you use?

they're a little short for my taste but they look nice ha

is that 4th support gonna go on the back end of it? i noticed there's no support on the end..

as long as your not going side to side.. and going forwards/backwards it shouldn't make that much of a difference i would think

those 2 sets were trial sets, my next set will be longer and at least 1 or 2 more supports going to the frame.

Well i would love a pair but i would want mine so i could take them on and off like weld triangle mounts to the frame with the bars coming out then have them slip in side and bold on with grade 8 bolts. think that would work?

If you did get it worked out it would be a pain in the rear. Mine are bolted on and if I really wanted to I could remove them but I don't think I would want to. They're plenty strong too.

sorry i am not making them removable. if you want a set you have to figure out how you want them mounted. they will come ready to weld.

I will probably only make ext cab versions until someone close wants some for regular cab.

I am not doing it because i hate drilling holes.

there is a ton of things to think about before you drill.

wires, brake lines, fuel lines, return fuel line, fuel filter...

what about where the frame is boxed? you gonna sleeve that too? lol

just does not sound like something i want to do or spend time on when it takes 30 min to weld it all on and be done. no reason to ever remove them.
