i will def buy a set. I really like the fact ( and i dont think anyone else has mentioned this) they do a great job of covering up the ugly frame showing when u do a BL.

Id sell them weld on and not put the legs on them, as shipping with out the legs welded on will make the package smaller and cheaper. Then people can angle the slider the way they want.

Why a 4th? Anyone who makes 'em for Toy's and such only have 3. Just extra tubing if you ask me..

I had three supports and I had a 4th welded in towarrds the back of the sliders and it inproved the strength of the sliders enormously. There is no flex at all now.

Good idea, maybe have both options, let the buyer choose. This being for instances where they might trust their wellding skills on flat surfaces but not so much on curved surfaces, or for people who can't weld and want to find a way to bolt it on.

250 will be pushing it on materials.

I dont know what that guy is using but its not DOM. Its either CREW or HREW. I dont use DOM either but I used CREW. It really depends on what you want, he must get great prices on steel. My connection isnt bad but I know about how much I am spending per slider.
