Haha gotta love V-notch. Me and my buddy Zach went through it right after a rain. I did it, and then he went and did the same thing! No pics of me on it however.



This is mine...


We go out there all the time, if you ever need someone to show you around let me know.

plus this...
Poison Spyder Customs: Products - Ricochet Rockers

clearancing... so much for haveing straight rockers...this was the hardest part

once i bent the template to the correct angles i cut the full rocker out. I
cut it leaving 4-1 inch sections left so i could beind it

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
