Man good job on the sliders .what happen to the truck?

Thanks. Was driving to the beach and another car pulled out on the highway right in front of me (t-intersection). Tried to swerve and slow down but the other car kept driving across the highway into the space that I was trying to swerve into, so I tboned it and went into the ditch. Everyone's ok (people in the other car got banged up kinda bad) but my truck's probably totaled. I'll find out in the next day or 2.

Yeah it's a bummer. I'll look over my notes and give you the specs when I get a chance. Couldn't salvage them from the wreck, so I just look at it as I got a good home course in welding and fabrication. I don't think I spent more than $300 total in metal, paint, and welding supplies.

Sorry to hear about you wrecking your ride and glad everyone is ok, but did you put a Patten on sliders and if so who did you give the prints to cause I would like to order me a set.

I don't think you can really patent rock sliders. Too generic.

I didn't make any blueprints or anything, but if you find a place near you to fabricate them, you can point them to this thread and that will show them what they need to get started. They'll probably need your truck to get some of the measurements right.

Also, if you're not body lifted I'd probably just use 2 x 3 or 2 x 2 for main tubes.
