Hey guys... I have some home-made rock sliders on the way. I got started on them today and finished putting one of them together. They are looking sick. I will post some pics on friday.

Has anyone seen other people out there with home made sliders? Did they work?

I will be building some. They will be made with all square tubes. I will be building the prototypes on my 4Runner first.

Square tubing

I used all 2x2x3/16 square tubing, but my friend and I forgot to take into account that when you cut a square tube at an angle the welding surface is longer than 2". Use Smaller tubing for any pieces that will be cut to an angle. Also... I found that 30 degree angle works for the top cross bar. When I post pics on fri. this will make more sense.

Mine are in the works as well... 75% done; just waiting to pick up some round tube to finish them up.

eXTra- nice work! The extra center support definitely seems like a good idea. ~Steve
