Not just form rocks. I got my 2 dents in my rocker panels from stumps. Whenever a trail gets tight, they are really nice to use them as a pivot point against a tree, or as a lifting point for a high lift.

I am definitely interested. I'd rather get them off of you, than off trail-gear. Unfortunately as everyone now says, I wont have the cash for another month. But if you still have them by then, you have definitely sold a set. I like the idea of DOM tubing as opposed to HREW

yes I will. I plan on picking up some paint and sand paper in the next few days. Right now they are back off the truck so I dont have pics.

I will send plates that are cut to the height of the frame. so you will need to weld the plates to the frame then weld the tube to that.

I will send some specs on how mine are welded to the frame. distances and stuff. I will post it too.

I don't see the body mounts being strong enough to handle that stress.

I was thinking a tube with a plate on one end with a hole drilled for the bolt. Then slip that up into the mount and bolt it on with the body bolt. Then some extensions like you have already have with plates on the rest on the frame. The end user could just bolt those in place. If holes exist or drill new.

The steel used in them is the same as the frame. At least the cab mounts are. If anything you can use this a anchor point so they would be less measuring for the install.

would yall stop talking about TG already...
its a big company that more or less mass produces its products and gets the tube in bulk, there for they can sell stuff for cheaper.


Zach, i was going to ask if i could get a set a few inches shorter due to my cut bed sides but it seems you've got that taken care of

I want a set, just need to get that Dodge first.


Do the support tubes come pre notched? fish mouthed w/e

yes they do matt, it comes with 3 tubes per side but add 10 bucks and I will toss in 1 more per side if you want 4. I cant figure out the 4 because I have the chevy leaf spring mod, so on a stock leaf ranger 4 would probably work out awesome.

I have 4 orders so no sense in PMing me wanting some. 4 people have offered to pay for the first sets. I am going to see how well they like them and if they are up to their expectations.

if so then i may sell more.
