Rock Sliders (pic request)

I'm gonna make me some rock sliders for my truck, but I'm not real sure what I want. I was hoping you guys could help me out. Does anybody have any pics of theirs or just some random styles I could base mine off of?
Thanks in advance!

Wow imagine that. I was coming into this section to do the exact same thing. To add to the conversation what would you guys think of two pieces of pipe spaced slightly as a step bar/rock slider?

Take a look at the ones that SuperGildo is making. They're pretty slick.

I have a square tube set that Tom made. Probably pics of them on here. They just bolt to the frame using existing holes. I've jacked up the side of the truck with them, so I guess they're strong enough.

Well, I have some but the "politics" of the situation makes me reluctant to send them to anyone. One of the folks who had them sent them to me so I'd shut up about trying to get him to post them, lol. Ask him and he might send you a set.

They did look good though, with the dual-tube design you mentioned.

There is 6 braces to the frame using 2" sq. tube and 1/4 plate. It bolts on, but it's alot easier to weld them on.

That addition of the diamond plate is cool. I haven't seen that before. Nice work.
