DIY rock sliders

Finally got around to fabricating my rock sliders. Easy part is done. Now I have to prep and paint.

I really miss having access to a plasmacam table. Looks good though.

I have since put some drain holes on the bottom side. It would have been less maintenance if I'd kept them solid but I went the route of looks rather than ease of maintenance. Not a whole lot of rain and or mud holes in my neck of the woods, so any accumulation could easily be removed with rubber mallet and air hose.

I am not a big fan of rocker steps on anything, but i dig the industrial look.

Great work. That's a beefy rock slider. I'm sure it would look a lot better when painted.

I don't personally like them, but they look really clean and well done. Good job man.

Punisher logo is a pretty cool touch too.
