    well I got some of the same design built by Mike Sullivan blazin91 he made these ToyBox and they are very nice and sturdy as you can see on the Toybox site you can easily lift the whole side no problem, very sturdy well worth it for body protection and a great high lift point. I love mine

    Do you have a pic of them on your rig? They don't give a good picture of what they look like on a chevy, something thats not a close up.

    How much do they flex? They look great, but do they really protect that well? Would love to have some that look like that, but want to make sure they work.

    IT'S MOSTLY MAUI WAUI.... BUT IT'S GOT SOME LABRADOR IN IT

    wow storm, your blazer is puuuuurdy! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    your fender flare thingies hold up pretty well? I'd get some cut outs, but I am always afraid rocks will just break them/tear them off. They aren't cheap...so that'd be annoying,

    I have the proto-type design which i altered a bit on my 79....currently jay from Toybox has my disc with the pictures from raw deal where i managed to hang myself from the sliders on a waterfall...supported the weight of the truck quite nicely....lol. Email him and have him send you some shots. They have saved my sheetmetal several times now!

    Thanks Jason,
    Haven't ripped them off yet but I'm trying...hehe.
    Once I do I'll see what else I can do to keep the side lines clean.

    They are very strong. And I am not just saying so because I designed them!! I put a set on one of the trucks we wheel with alot and this guy ABUSES them. He is the only one I have seen to bend them, but still did not hurt the body. I have hung on mine a few times and no damage at all. I am sure you will be happy with them.

    Well as soon as I get my pay check I think I'll order a set. They look like a must have item to protect my truck. Thanks for the input.

    Mike do you have pics on how they mount? have you put any on a first gen blazer? I"m trying to figure how to mount a set on my blazer that will be strong enough to high lift from and not damage anything.. I saw some built by 4xdoctor
    http://www.fourxdoctor.com/main/body_guard/origonal_style/bodyguard001.jpg
    But I"ve heard guys talking about having problems with ones only mounted to the frame. Problem I have is I have rocker boxes to deal with. I"m putting a 2" body lift on so that should help with giving access to the frame to mount.

    This is a link to a write-up Shawn Spickler did on them. Iy shows how they mount up. I have not done a first gen, yet, but I want to.

    The ones on that Jeep from Four X Doctor look great, but a Jeep doesn't weigh as much as a Blazer so you I guess you get a way with welding or bolting to the frame. I wouldn't try it with my Blazer.
