    4x4 Iron did a great job on my rock sliders, I dont think you'll be disappointed.

    I've seen 4x4 iron's work in person and it is very nice and well built. Watson (Offroad Design) mentioned making a jig for a GM bumper (like the old set up on the K5 and current setup on the burb) and possibly producing them sometime in the future. Said he had a weight issue to work out on the tubes and easier copes to make. Either company would be an awsome choice. Avalanche Engineering and Poinson Spyder Customs do a lot of really technical tubework also, as far as i know all of their GM stuff is custom one-offs at shop rate $$$

    Then again you can split a bender between a friend and tube everything including you kitchen /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    DP is building me a set right now. Ive seen his before, spoke to some people here about him, and dealt with him personally. ALL GOOD. He does have a day job though, so he may not be in the market. If he will, Id let him if I were you.

    Agreed, DP built my rear one and will be building me a front one along with some sliders in January. He does GREAT work and is a SUPER guy! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Very Nice. Could we get a pic or two of how the winch is stuffed in there? I take it that it is a Non I winch?
