My first reaction after reading the thread title was "oh boy, here comes another hack job". But they look awesome!

It might be a pretty good idea for a thread "I built -----, without a -----." Show what can be done without special equipment.

Looks good. I am going to look closely at your mounting idea. My rockers are built to bolt to stock plastic peice location and its just too darned tall to be useful in getting in.

Go to any steel supplier that supplies pipe and tube,you can buy 45 or 90 degree elbows

I didn't know that! Been to my local steel shop a few times and have never seen them, I'll have to ask the next time I'm in there, great info and will save me some money by not having to by pre bent tubes from places like trail tubes. Thanks Ironworker!

Those are pretty close to what I was going to build. They would only sell me 20' of tubing, so I came home and used what I had on hand. Those look really good.
