sliders with no bender

I got done early today and went by a steel supply that was on the way home. I was going to buy some 2x3x3/16 tube, weld in 90's and 45's. They would only sell the tube in a full 20' stick, so I left with nothing.

I came home and decided to make it work with what I had. The longer pipe is 1 3/4", the "step" part is 1 1/2", the plate is 3/16".

That looks really good. I like that design better then the pipe being bent to meet the plate

Looks slick!

I'm assuming your planning to mount them flat with looking at the angle that you cut the ends of the long tube. I would suggest angling them up as close to the body that you feel comfortable with. If doing this, make sure the doors will open. Also, leave a gap in case they bend up a little over time

Thanks for the compliments. I'm glad y'all like it because it is pretty time consuming.

I was planning on mounting them flat. I can't anlge up much because of the fender flare thing that is mounted behind the actual fender flare, but I'm always open to suggestions.

Did you mount these up yet? I'd like to see how you did it.

Been out of town. Last week in TX panhandle. This week I'm in New Mexico. Unfortunately it still looks just like those pictures.

Got some time this weekend. I'm still going to make a few changes. I think I'll make some cuts in the angle to lighten it up and put a gusset under the square tubing where it ties to the angle.


Theres a floor jack under the pipe. It lifted the front tire off the ground without much flexing.

Okay, finally done. Work has been really busy both close to home and going out of state, so it's taken awhile.

I used 3x5x1/4 angle, and sandwiched it between the frame and the skid plate that holds the transfer case. The 5" leg of the angle had to be cut down a little. I mounted the pipe to the angle with 1 1/2" square tubing turned 45* for added strength. I welded a small gusset on the underside of the tube. Finished it with rattle can bedliner.
