I think they look perfect. Not sure i'd want them much higher than that actually.

Are these the Zabeard sliders?

No those are another companies.

Looks good! What type of coating did you put on those?

I think they will be a good asset to the truck!

Awesome dude! Thats cheaper than Zabeard was selling them for, and cheaper than the guy that made my first bumper will make them for (he wanted $300). I might have to check that out as that is my next mod.

Does that company have a website?

Also, Beard, are these as good as the ones you made? If yours are better/stronger AND if you decide to make them again, i will probably buy from you.

I got my tax refund and have some cash to burn right now lol

hrew is about half the strength of DOM. depends on the dom though too. but its roughly half.
