I haven't, but I've never actually thrown a tape on it. I might measure when I get home

One thing worth noting, the tube hangs off the body a little more in front than in back. I checked my measurements a thousand times so I know thats right. Appears to be an illusion created by the body being narrower as it nears the front. Any you other 2x6 guys notice this? Its not bad or anything, just an observation.
I;ve noticed that before, i think thats just how theyre shaped

I noticed the same thing with my jcr sliders, and I measured over and over. It kind of annoys me haha. This makes me want to pull out my old sears welder and turn my sliders into permanent rockers. Looks really good man

Yup sliders on my jeep stick out further up front. I might be doing a mini boat side edition or some interesting things with angle iron. Gotta cut it to make my decision

I found the problem, this is regular 2x6, painted with bedliner. I should have got diamond plate triple chrome plated 2x6. I did **** up.
