Got some Armor

Well being that Matt (99Ranger4x4) is such a nice guy and hooked me
up with these rock slider's. I ended up getting down there to his place last Sat, only to find him in his driveway grinding away on a RCD diff bracket LOL...but we finally got him off his a$$ and put him to work. Thanks again Matt:

I took a die grinder to them to roughin it up. That way I could coat the top of them with some rubber no-slip. My wife finally has something to step on, in order to get in the truck, the last thing I need is her busting her tail cause her foot slipped and slides off the slider...hahah what a concept
On to the pics:


















SCUFF

hahaha....I KNEW that you would have something to whine about Matt...LOL my wife had the Canon Rebel XT with her so I had to use the powershot....I'll get some better ones....Thanks for the comments guys. I think for what they are supposed to do, square tubing is a better way to go....there isn't as many tubes to get hung up on rocks and what not. I've got 4 legs going to the frame and that's about it. Not to mention (for right now) torsion bar brackets....so I'm really happy with em....oh and matt thanks again...for letting me give you a 18 pack for em and then help ya out and drink half of em...LOL

High Roller?.....well that's how I roll dawg....

yea yea yea, i have no idea what ****s worth though.. Eric originally said "so what do you want for those sliders" then a little later said something along the lines of "we normally solve this in terms of cases of beer"


your more than welcome to throw some money my way.. i should charge you for prepping the brackets and cross members haha


I keep flip flopping on cars/trucks... feel free to donate to my down payment fund, i'm currently planning on keeping the truck since i cant sell it and getting another ranger since its been a good truck and taken a hell of a beating. ha

yea it looks that way.. maybe i'll be taking another stick of t00b instead of cash monies

nevermind, i'll take the cash




i kinda want to make more anyways.. make the legs the right length, play with the fancy welder some more.


I did Erics differently for the front leg and is probably better than the way we did it. Not to mention they sit level and are evenly spaced out from the body all the way down.

if you want more steel now is the time to get it. it seems as though all the prices are increasing quickly..

i cut a piece of plate to fit between the sleeve in the frame and the body mount, welded it to the frame and put the leg on top of that.
