Any pics of the rock slider?
Took a couple daylight shots of what I did for tucking a hitch into the rear bumper really quick. I may add a couple small support tubes between the bottom tube and the hitch. They won't actually weld to the hitch, they'll just be welded to the bumper and just kinda sit against the hitch as supports for landing on that lower tube.
And here's what I've got so far on the slider. My goal was to knock out a duplicate on the drivers side today also and then add a tube outside of the square to plate along the whole topside to work as an entry step also. I got the drivers side one cut to length, got the bend put it in and started to weld up the pie cut when the welder died. It took out my pedestal grinder at the same time. Something is internally angry with the welder for sure cause it has it's quirks these days and it's getting worse. I'm halfways tempted to get it going again tomorrow and then put it on craigslist for like $400. Someone can show up, I can weld the crap out of some stuff and let them burn a couple samples and take it away. LOL Sold "as is"... Then take that and put it towards a new one... Hmmmmmm... Maybe I'll do some price shopping this week actually.
So anyways, the sliders... Like I said, not done, still gonna do the outter tubing and a top plate as a step.
sorry for the kinda blurry ones but you get the idea and I don't care enough to retake them. LOL
Andy, remember what I was saying about storage area? Totally enough space to toss spare axles and driveshafts up in there!!!
There's no splicing going on in these pictures, just pie cut, bend, weld. I ground the main tube that you see smooth, once painted you won't know it ever was cut and welded. I plated the center 2 stringer tubes at the frame. I would've plated all 4 but space wasn't on my side so I figured two is better then none. If it ever gets too trashed, cut it off, grind smooth, make it again. This stuff is monster thick though, it will likely outlive the expo. I'm going to triangle gusset to the frame rails with plate also though before it's done to help spread the load across the height of the frame rails.
