It's shipping and parts.

These things will take a ton of abuse. On my truck I have slammed them against rocks over and over again. No issues. I do have a small dent in the one side bar but I was literally bouncing it off a rock over and over again trying to get up this ledge.

I'd love to make them for anyone but for the next few weeks I'm stuck with crutches and a knee brace so I can't bend tube.

If you are serious and want a real price send me a pm.

body lift is going to be first, but i do want a set, no hurry at all...

i can deal with dents... if you were to put a jack under them, and lift, would they bend do you figure? or would you lift the truck up? (hi-lift)

i'll shoot you a pm when i'm ready to buy though

I have used one on my truck, it will left the whole front end off the ground. they do flex but it is nothing out of the ordinary from DOM tube. You want it to flex and give some. That will help absorb the brunt of the impact.

Mine have not broke yet. I dont think they will "break", only bend or dent, they are made with 1020 DOM which is not seamed tube.

I lifted my truck on a 2 post car lift to test the strength of them and they didn't permanently bend. They flexed and had me a little worried at first but there was no problems with them. Had the whole truck off the ground.

Better to flex than to crack and snap off like Zach said.

I can dig some pictures up if need be. There are a few with them. I will make them any time, just send me a PM and I will get you a final price and make them. I have no deadlines. Prices may change as steel changes price every other day. But for now its 300+ shipping.

Its an extra 20 for all 4 posts. And seems like shipping to canada is twice as much. So 120? I know I have priced it before. Send me your address and I will get an exact amount.

I wonder what these would look like installed upside down? That is basically what I was looking for when I asked you about them. More of side steps, than sliders. If you installed the same thing upside down would they function as side steps? Anyone have a loose pair they could see what that looks like?

they will work for that, when you get them you decide the angle to mount them I do not set that. you weld the posts on then stick the outer piece on and choose the desired angle.

Ok so i could tuck them up against the body and not have them stick out much? Your sliders are the best i have seen, do you make bumpers too? Lol

Yeah the post come in 14" lengths but you are welcome to trim them up if you would like. I assume you know these require welding to mount?

I have made bumpers but I dont have a stock truck to make a 'die' or basic mount bumper from. my ranger is no longer in stock enough form to build something i could sell.

beard, you offer bolt on ones at all? something that clamps to the frame or around it? would that make these less strong if it was bolt on instead of weld on?
