    Default Homemade rock sliders

    My neighbor (JK owner) and I are building rock sliders. I am giving him my Jeep step tubes for his assistance. He has a welder and metal chop saw. I could have just taken them to my school to weld but he wanted to help for the swap. He used to weld fence pipe so his skills are much better than mine. We also had a lot of fun putting our heads together building these sliders. I wanted 2x4 tubing but settled on 3" square because they had too light of steel for the purpose at the supply shop. I am putting some tubing 1 5/8" on the side. We got everything tacked together on the drivers side. I have some braces that go between the pipe yet to put in but this is pretty much the look. We cut the rails back off to be able to get a weld all the way around the elbow section. Now we just need to burn it all in. When we finish the drivers side we can do the passenger. Here are some pics.

    Update: I finished the passenger side by myself and got them mounted up. I need to do some clean up and painting underneath but I think it turned out okay.
    Finished Update-

    That's gonna be nice! I just swapped my bolt on rock sliders (from my XJ) to a guy in my club. He's getting me some 2x4 rectangle tubing, and I'm going to cut my rockers out, and weld in the tubing.
    Also going to do something like you're doing, with the round tube on the side.

    X2! I'd much rather fab something up if I'm capable of it.

    Luckily, our local steel place has a 'Handy Man' corner, where you can buy 'drops' and odd's and ends without an account.

    (lots of places only sell to buisnesses)

    And they'll sell full stuff or make cuts for ya, but the drops are priced to go, so I try and get stuff from thier first.

    Sliders look great!
