    My neighbor could make you just about anything. He's the guy who did the rockers, floors, and cab corners in my truck. Very knowledgeable guy who has experience out the wazoo!

    You'll have to talk to him about tube bumpers though, I can get his number for you if you want it.

    :waytogo:

    Get in line behind ME though....I've been waiting 2 years to set up my workshop here, and I've got a whole new driveline to install in Stomper (502 / TH400 / Atlas4) this Spring.

    Something like tube bumpers should be easy to find online though....it seems like every wannabe fabricator offers rocksliders and tube bumpers :thinking:

    Yeah, most of them do. But, shipping kind of kills it.

    Where abouts in Soutern NH? I got family in New Boston.

    Rock Dog 4x4 in Barrington, NH. http://http://www.rockdog4x4.com/

    Way Off Road in Barrington as well, but can't find his info right now.

    Can't go wrong with either of these guys...

    Thanks Roger! Have you done any buisness with either of them? How are their prices? I`ll have to give them a ring...

    Keene.

    Figure about 90 minutes from Boston.....Take Rte 140 from Rte 2W.


    If you had access to a welder, I could probably help you bend the tubing and send you home to finish it yourself. That would be cheap for you, and not too much of my time either. Still.....your timeframe would have to be at least a couple months from now since the tools are still hibernating! :D

    Well, my buddys dad welds, but if he wouldn`t do it, I could have a welder....

    It will definitely keep a couple months, maybe May or June? I`ll keep in touch...

    I trust either shop with my own rig. When it comes to fab work, you get what you pay for. You want nice stuff, you have to pony up. You want cheap...well you get the idea.

    There's also Bay State Off Road, but he's down on the Cape. I trust him as well.

    Yeah, it's the one we're trying to expand on.
    Hoping to pull from a greater area than just our own neck of the woods.

    It's also an automotive repair shop but we have hopes of leaning more towards 4x4 fabrication work.

    The sliders are on a custom built Tracker, built by the shops owner.
    Here's a pic to show ya why he built em so 'beefy'.

    Yep.

    The entire day was salvaged being the place we went to later in the day was pretty cool. (can't remember the name...Ma Bell?)

    He flopped it coming out @ the end of the day, tried on last hill climb...

    Gregg and I were already back at the trailers, missed the whole show.

    How's the motor working?
