They look similar to this however they do not go under as far, and are bolted directly to the tub.

oh so you put it in a press break? didn't even think about doing it that way that had to have been a pretty penny to break something that long!

I paid $140 for everything, including the bend - far better imo than paying the retarded amount every company is charging. I like the slender look without a slider or anything - I understand the benefits of it, but I can pivot on my rocker just like anyone else who has a tube or whatever it is savvy puts on theirs

You are welcome to compare your design to savvy's. I have a set in the garage. If you are honestly trying to tell me that they are of the same protective quality, I will tell you to do your homework. As I did when we put yours on that day. I'm not knocking them. I'm just saying that they need to be tied in better than they are currently. The mounting hardware is massive, but is not needed, and you did not preload them. You also have no mounting underneath unless you've went back afterwards which if I know you, you have not. Lol

After denting the tubes on my orevious rockers, I wanted something I could not dent as easily. Press broke chromo was it. I too like the slim look of nothing on the outside, but would prefer to keep the rocks that much farther from me, my occupants, and my sheetmetal. Savvy does all those things, and the chromo slider portion is replaceable when I eventually do trash it out. The price is hard to handle, but I got a deal, making them on par with everyone else's just about. Plus, I've never had an issue paying for a quality part. I'm not thumbing my nose at you or your build, but to compare the two isn't really the same.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

read a post buddy, all I said was I don't care if it has a tube or whatever it is savvy calls theirs - not once did I say that my design is superior or even on par to savvys - I know it isnt, but guess what....they work, and I've smacked them on some rocks pretty damn hard. All i said was I can pivot just like you can with any other top brand with a slider.....why would you assume that I feel mine are of the same quality? I will use my design UNTIL i see them fail, then I may pony up the coin - or just have a local fab guy make me some boatsides, which is more likely. cmon James, you know I'm not some ****** on here that assumes everything I make is better than every one elses **** they pimp. Not to be a dick, but we all know I can be, next time read AND comprehend instead of read then type. hugs and kisses
