Cool. Thanks for the pictures. If I am unable to find anything already made, I may just try to make them. Those pics help me a lot on how the mounting would go. I have a welder, but I am far from good at it. May take a while if I have to make them.

Just remember our trucks are a wee bit heavier than the Toyota or Jeep pictured.

So don't be surprised if you land on a rock and have to roll down the window to get out of the truck because the "rockslider" folded up over your door.

Unless you have something like Whitmore. (Even then, his is probably stronger than the frame it is attached to.)

Yeah I know our trucks are a lot heavier than Jeeps and Toyota’s. I think I am going to make my own out of 2x2 square tubes. These things are going to be beefy. I have an idea of how I want them to look so I just need to purchase the stock and I will be able to get started. I will be doing some light off roading and going on some trails, and the rock sliders will just make the truck a little more capable off road.

Yeah. Do you think 1/8 inch square pipe is thick enough? Seems like it would be heavy duty.
