Rock sliders are all finished. Had them welded to the frame so they are very solid.

Those are freaking awesome. I think putting a set of nerf bars on a truck is usually like cutting a dog's nuts off but those look great! nice gussets.

That looks great, nice work

I threw my nerf bars back on just to save my rockers from getting smashed and my paint so chiped up also. Took them off in the first place because I didnt like them...I might have to copy you though

Looks better, and Im sure they are a lot tougher than some damn cheap nerf bars.

I had to relocate the e-brake cable bracket to make room for one of the mounts plus it was way too low for a 4x4 and I relocated the main harness off the frame and into the body braces above the frame. I am going to get a buddy to draw me one up on a cad program and get it laser cut from a hardened sheet aluminum and then bent using the original as a template.

They are not nerf bars, they are steel tubing welded together and to the truck to be able to support the weight of the truck while sliding over rocks.

I love this! I have got to find a fabricator here in Nashville that can build me a set and weld them onto the truck!
