    Had some fun with the power tools here in the last week.....what do you guys think? My rockers were pretty rusted out, it was time for them to go, so I replaced them with 3x3x1/8 square tubing.

    Lets see some more pics!

    Looks like a good job. Did you just cut a line strainght across the fenders and door?

    I will be replacing my rockers with sliders soon, and need some ideas of what I will be doing.

    Yeah, I basicly cut it straight across, then I had to trim my fenders to fit the 42's and pinched in outer and inner part of the fender together and welded them back together. Right now, the slider is only welded to the body on the outside, but I'm going to be putting gussets on the back ever 6" or so. Also, I made the pieces of tubing that is on the front fender and the part that replaced the rocker panel seperate pieces so I can still take my fender off without a problem, that is what the plate with the 8 bolts in it is.

    As you requested. It is going to be welded all the way across then welded down, may look crappy now, but I've got faith its gonna look better.

    I like it. Looks good and functional. How much clearance did you gain?

    How did you address the front fender? What did you do for the under-floor portion...i.e. did you tie it into the tub supports?

    Quite a bit, I'm pretty confident that my tires won't rub now, and if they do, I'll just cut back the square tubing a little. I hope that answers your question.

    It was all just welded into the body. Yes, I did tie it into the tub supports. Never had an ounce of trouble. Smacked them hard all the time:wink1:
