    I know a while back some one form the big dogs was talking about making sets of rock sliders, and I was just curious if they ever made them? Let me know. Thanks

    I think Burt4x4 did for his '72.

    IIRC he just used some 3x3 square - I am not sure how he mounted it though.

    I am just about finished with 4x4iron's rocksliders for my '73. I will be welding up the drivers side tonight (hopefully).

    Next week is 4x4iron's bumper and tire carrier!

    Yup I sure did. Click on the link below to see pics in my gallery.
    Basically I removed my rockers and stuffed 3x3 square tubeing in its place. I welded the 3x3 to the edge of my rocker boxes.
    Good Luck

    If you bolt them, you can take them off to repare or replace, and you can always go back to stock with no premanent damage.
    Welding is stronger but you have to cut or grind the welds off to take off and when you weld the metal composition of the frame changes.
