The welds look a little off but I doubt they will break.

So you purchased these?

Ima def. have to save for a set. Think Zabeard will make another set like yours. I like how yours tuck better, angle up more and are closer to the body.

No offense but 4 guys standing on it, and the weight of the truck coming slamming down on it are 2 completely different forces.

Buddies welding is always nice, but I make sure my welds are gonna hold -- ESPECIALLY if its not my truck, I guess its just me, I'm pretty self conscious about stuff like that.. I hate the thought of someone thinking, "gee, look at those ****ty welds, who the hell did those?"

yeah i dont weld the legs on that is your job. so you can cut the legs shorter if you would like. i like mine to stick out more because i am full width. also i lay them flatter for more protection away from the body

I laid mine flatter(Test fit), but it was awkward trying to get in and out, so I angled them more.

Toreador4x4,

Looks good man!!

Sliders arent for looks, maybe tube steps are more your speed.

I like them. I was about to ask you why there was only one brace between the two horizontal pcs., but then you said they were off his truck so they were the first. I like mine with more braces better.

Why did Zach sell his?

Here's mine:
