Im a mechanical engineering student. most of this stuff was done in my driveway but im fortunate to work at a machine shop on campus and have access to some specialty tools like the plasma and other stuff...
tubes we got bent up this weekend for the steps, pretty sick! going to be one VERY nice set of sliders when its all said and done.
finally got my gears set back up and the jeep running again (bad pinion bearing) so i took everything to work and got the fitment right, also trimmed the bottom to fit around the body mounts... pretty happy with everything... im gonna cut the other one and hope to get them welded up tom so i can get the tubes one.
got the sliders on for a test run to flat nasty this weekend. The clearance difference between these and my old tube steps is unreal! i actually had to purposefully drive over a rock to get them to hit just so i could see how they held up, and that was the only time i touched them all weekend... but now the lowest point is the body mounts so im gonna fab up some skids for those too
backing plates on the sides are 2x1/4 stainless strips, floor is 2x1/4 mild...
10 stainless counter sunk bolts per side for a nice smooth surface.
now that wheelin season is over....... im gonna pull these off, stripem back down, weld the tubes on, clean up some of the grinder marks and ill paint it gunmetal to be the same color as the TJ
that was actually the rock i drove over to test my rockers
Attempt number 15 on the hill entrance to proving grounds... my rear diff kept getting hung up... i have 15 pics of me going a little further up the hill each time "OK Nick, last attempt and then im done will this stupid hill"... actually made it up
