I guess my 3/16" wall box tube is going to be way overkill then.

I am hoping it will be a little less slippery with the bedliner. When my parents ride with me they complain about the height of it now, so they will use these as steps. They'll really hate it when my spindles come in.

I don;t know if yall noticed or not, but I had Zach make on side shorter so I wouldn't have to redo my exhaust again. It'll stop right before the tips.

I would have waited until I had the legs welded on. Your just gonna have to grind some off now.

I am not worried about grinding a little off. It will be a lot easier to grind a little off and repaint it than to paint them when they are on the truck.
