any bumper/slider build threads?

well, after wheeling tonight, i REALLY need to build some sliders. i thoroughly destroyed the drivers rocker tonight on a tree/rock ledge to the point the door is a PITA to open. and my last excursion resulted in a lost front bumper cover, so now i have no protection at all up front, even the stocker helped a little, as now i have broken off both fog lights.

so, if anyone has any plans for sliders or bumpers you could send me, or any links to build threads or other place i could look for build threads. i have all the steel. some nice 2x3 tube for sliders, and some 2x6 for bumpers, along with some 1/4" plate, 4" c-channel, and some 1x1 and 2x2 box if i need it. jsut need a good starting points, so i can keep from further jeep destruction. i will post pics of all current carnage in the coming days once i get some daylight to take pics.

no we do you just might have to use the search at the top of the page because this is covered quite often. I have a front bumper thread from when i made mine and already posted pics of sliders i made in a different thread. its not that we want to be jerks but if you do a little leg work we can avoid answering the same q's over and over.

i have searched, and found a few on here. but like sandman posted a link to another site. google is too clutter with other junk to try searching there. just thought some of the members here may have other links or the like to post that may not come up with a search here.

my sliders are done, all but making the mounts basically. cut some 2x3 box tube, welded supports on them, and now welding some braces on teh frame for them to mount to. should be hi-liftable with ease, as well of offer protection and bracing to the unibody.
