nice

that looks sweet with those on with the body trim

you have lots of clearence under there

Are you gonna do more than 2 frame tie ins? I'd put 2 more at least

and those don't look that heavy at all, I was expecting some serious beef from your prev post

yea I said above that Im going to do at least 2 more frame tie ins. in the picture they weigh about 55 pounds each. (my initial 100 pound weight guesstimate was off, dustin thought I said 3/8th wall, but its 3/16th) with 2 more frame tie ins and gusseting and end caps they should be pretty heavy.

with 3 legs(soon to be a 4th) and capped off, mine were only about 55-60 lbs. ended up being fairly lighter than i thought they would. yours are pretty much the same as mine. its never as heavy as you think its gonna be. looks good man!

I already swapped to 5 lug. Those are just straight up spacers not adapters.

It rained all day, but I was able to work in the garage for a little while. I got all 8 legs for my sliders cut with my bandsaw and one of the sliders is capped on the ends, the other caps are cut just not welded on yet.
