    OK. I just found a 10 foot piece of 3" square tubing 1/4" wall. Where do you guys mount your rock sliders?

    Cut what's left of your rockers out- all the way from the front wheel well to the rear wheel well and weld in your 3 x 3. This is the perfect size material to use...

    I used some 3x2 square tubing and cut out the rockers and welded them up there. Mine are about 6' long. They go from the front hacked fender to the back hacked fender. I cut them off at an angle and welded some caps on them so it'll help it slide some if it hits head on. The sliders are welded to the sheet metal, and then I have some braces welded to it that go to the body mounts. I've got some more bracing under the floors for when I chop the top. The body doesn't squeak anymore! lol! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Thunder, nice sliders, looks like they would double as steps to get in, thats what I want. Also, that was one nice buck you shot, mule deer right? Man hunting down there sure looks a lot different than what we're used to out here in MN. You called that buck a 5 point? wouldn't that be a 10 pointer. With white tails up here we count the total points, not just one side. maybe people around the country do it different, or is it just like that for elk and muleys? Seeing that buck reminds me how pissed I still am at not getting the 10 pointer I had a chance at this winter, clicking the safety off is louder than you think, doh!

    Thanks. i made the sliders out of a piece of 10 " wide structural steel i beam that was laying around work. Cut it lengthwise down the middle welded on the mounts did a bit of grinding and they were done. They do work good as steps. The wife and kids like them for getting in and out.

    Out here in the west we only count one side of antlers. Dont know why. I guess its just the Way of the West. Either that or people just loose count after 5 fingers /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    Good luck on next years hunt that whitetail will be evrn bigger then.
