sorta take the bolts and make them all welds but move out like 3/4s of the way out the tubs and make the tubs to the frame bigger than the tubs on the sliders so the sliders slide inside the mount tubs and drill a hole threw them and bold them on there not to the frame weld to frame but make a slip joint and bold the 2 tubs together. u know what i mean

Are you talking about putting 1 tube inside the other and then having a bolt run thru both of them?

i understand what you are saying, but i am not going to make them like that. they will rattle around and they aren't light so it will take at least 2 people to put them into position.

i mean if you bought mine someone would buy some tube in that size that would fit inside of mine and do it just like you mention, its all up to you how you want to mount them but they will come ready to weld.
