    Who sells them? I rarely pay attention the burb stuff /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif. I am planning on selling my DD and going back to driving my burb, want to make it a little capable. Seems the rockers would be quite vulnerable on the thing.

    I have been loking for some but I think building them myself is the best option. I would ask someone who already builds them to make me a set but us postal service probly wont send them /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif owell a reson to plaz with a welder /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    I had DP90K5 build some for my burb. I don't have any pics of them mounted on the truck yet. They really help to climb
    up in the truck. I'm going to get him to build a rear winch bumper next and then one to replace the front. I highly recommend Daniel for his quality work. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Though this may not help anybody in the near future, I am going to fab my own sliders eventually. When I do, I'll make a dimensioned drawing available of the final design so that anybody who is looking at making their own, can.

    Mine attach to the body right along the outside edge. If you look under there you'll see where the body has it's own frame work seperate of the regular frame.

    yeah i have thought of ataching them there but also thought that if they take a good hit wont they still smack in the body? is there really that much flex in this area that you couldent atach it to the frame? mabey with an 11/2" of clearance? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Mine attach to the body supports and I have a side support going to the frame, but I mounted 1/2" of rubber in between the support and frame. I've flexed it out pretty hard a could of time to try and break something on purpose and haven't yet.

    I've had to get out and check mine because I hit them so hard I was sure I screwed something up. Still nothing more than dents and scratches. The only thing I did different from the K5 guys was to put twice as many mounts. Everyone in the club thought it was overkill. I believe they're perfect. Also, I've never pushed them up into the body. I just got my tubing bender in the mail last month. In a couple more weeks I'll be able to start making some. /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif

    a couple weeks ago i was up in utah and talked to a guy with a 91 sub and he made his own, really simple really beefy. just bolted right up to the frame, had 2" tube coming off of the 6" square plate (that was bolted to the frame) and bigger tubing under the rockers then he had a guy here in vegas bend up a set of tube steps for them. they looked awesome, im gonna make a pair asap! /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
