    Another member was telling me about a set of rockjunkie perches he has on his van width but I did a search and come up with nothing, still looking.

    dunno if he is around much anymore... or if he still makes these. They are ungodly beefy... machined from a solid block of steel and are about 1" taller than stock... he also could drill the center pin holes off center (whatever distance you want) so you can relocate your axles.

    Search for his name on the user list. They also fit on my 14 Bolt SF. I just PMed him the money and a few days later I had my perches. VERY beefy, one of the few things ive managed not to break on my truck.

    One of the guys in my club made his own out of reciever hitch tube, the 2.5 square 1/4" thick stuff, cut them to length, clamped them together with an appropriate spacer between them then cut the arcs with a hole saw, by clamping them together, you cut both at once and its more even on the saw, had them on for a couple years now and no problems.

    Last time he was on here was July of 2003. How long ago was this? I am going to send him a PM and see if he still does it, hopefully he does or ORD comes through for me
