You're right.

as much as i'd like bolt in for ease, weld would be better.

and it'd be no problem to find someone with the skill to do that.

because unlike most of the people that want them on here, mine will be getting a proper beating and the more support the better.

its like another 3'.. so depending on what he uses, $6 to $25... i'm willing to pay for that.

DOM for sliders? Your a fool. Talk about wasting money. People make entire cars from Crew and only do the cage around the driver in DOM.

I wont be making them out of DOM unless they run out of Crew. Its only as strong as what you weld it against.

I have made 4 sets so far. The 5th set will go on my truck probably january then i will start making sets for people.
