Nice work, but shouldn't the rails be angled up at about 45* or so? Decreases the chance of them acting like levers on the top of the rocker when you come down really hard on something.

Yours don't stick out very far, so it may not be as big a concern as with the really wide flat rails. Again....nice job

Thanks for the comments guys!

They aren't angled upwards near as much as some manufacturers, but they do have a 20 degree angle to them. I don't think I will be catching on the tubes much because they don't stick out very far, and the rockers themselves stick downwards a bit lower because of the double bend.

Thanks.

Just to be different really. I plan on getting tube fenders front and rear with rear corners.. and I don't really like the look of all the black armour covering everything.

Ultimately I would have liked to professionally paint all my armour with a color matched paint, but there's no way I would spend that sort of money on just paint.

I figured this is a good middle ground. I can be different and it won't stick out so much on a silver jeep.

I'm honestly not 100% happy with the colour yet. It sticks out which is cool, but I'm gonna make a final decision on paint once I get my front bumper done. Either all black or all nth grey. It's super easy to repaint black over the current colour because it's just tremclad. Maybe my paint skills will get better and I can colour match stuff myself with some accuracy, wet sanding, and the right paint.

I gotcha, well it will look good either way. You could probably have someone photoshop what your thinking in that color.

This is the colour I was aiming for.. but they turned out different. They have almost a blueish tinge to them which makes it look kind of odd.

sliders

Do you have your layouts for the back up plates, and the placing of your holes? What are all the holes on the bottom of sliders? Looks awesome and i am building them!!! I really appreciate your sharing with all of us!

I want to make a set for my jeep too, was thinking about using diamond plate for the flat steel The local steel supplier has sheets of 14 gauge, do you think that would be thick enough??

also what holes were you talking about here?
