    contact mike at growlbr@yahoo.com, he does custom fabrication work that is top notch and his prices are very reasonable. Tell him Todd sent you. He's in Burbank, Ca. but he will ship. He is making my sliders and he made my bumper/carrier.

    Whats wrong with big and wide?

    What type of sliders did you hav in mind? Ones that cradle and protect the body or just something for the rockers? Did you want tube or boxed steel? How Much Ride height are you willing to compromise? Fill us in on the type of sliders and we can tell you where to get them. Most places that make them will do custom lengths, but depending on the style and finish you want, just about anyone who can get good penetration with a welder and run a decent bead can make a set. You have to be more capable with a cage, but sliders are fairly rudimentary. One thing that will severly limit your selection is if you want the design to be like sullibuilt's and have bends. Lots of people have access to welders, but tube benders are a little less common. If you want some ones like S. E. C. then just find someone on the board who can weld who is close, buy the materials and some beer or sodas and pay them a visit when they have the time. Won't take to long if you know what you want!

    The ORD Jimmy as far as I know is running a one off set that Stephen made himself.
    Just checked your profile out...you were your troops first Eagle Scout????? Congrats. I too am an Eagle Scout(Jan 1997) If you want something simple I could make you something...My dad has a 90 Burb so I have a drawing board,LOL

    that'd be cool but it would have to wait a while cuz i'm broke right now.

    yeah i'm the first eagle in my troop and family, it's pretty cool working for something for almost your whole life and finally getting it.

    How long has your troop been around? the one I belonged to just had thier 50th( probably 52 by now, time flys) My twin and I got ours at the same time, we had 10 Eagles that year. Just think...only 2% of ALL scouts become Eagles.
