    I posted up in the Garage as well, but has anyone made a set of sliders that double as rocker boxes? I think this is the route that I am going to go with my K5 (1970), and I just wanted to know if you guys had any insight into this or pictures.
    Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    That is kind of what we were thinking. And thanks for the *search* reply assmunch. I got tired of looking through old posts after about 20minutes of not finding what I was looking for. Where is the flip-off dude when you need him? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I built rock sliders into my old rocker panels (which were completely rusted out.) I sawzalled out the old mess and welded in 2" x 3", .125" wall tubing. They are welded in to the main cab supports and then to the surrounding sheet metal. Then I came off of that with some 1.5" sq. tubing to protect the door. I've came down on them really hard in Tellico (hard enough to bend the big cab mount bolt under the drivers feet) with barely a dent to the rock sliders. They're one of the better modifications I've done. Wish I had pictures for you.

    Will
