    i want to put sliders on a long bed but the frame isn't straight as it bends up right under the cab. does anyone have pics or a good explanation on how they attached theirs to the frame?

    Well I don't own a long bed but I do own a Pick up and my frame does the same thing. First thing I did was got rid of the saddle bag fuel tanks the pick ups come with. Attatched my slides to the frame at 3 points, the first close to the front tire is mounted to a plate welded and bolted to the frame with gussets, the other two wouldn't do that due to the frame step. I accomplished this by making 1/4 plate that dropped down to where I needed to attatch the slider runners. These were bolted to the frame with 4 grade 8 bolts using the fuel tank saddle bag mounting holes and welded a 6" x 7" gusset for strength. Believe it the frame will flex alittle but not the slides. I have come down on them very very hard many times with no problems. I felt this would be better than having the body mount bolts take ALL the punishment if I just welded them to the rocker. Oh btw, I cut out the rocker in 3 notches to the slider is level with the bottom of the rocker panel. No loss of ground clearence. Hope that helps.
    P.S. I'll try to remember to post up some pics when I get home. I'm a work now and it's lunch hour. :wink1:
