Well, these were supposed to be made a while ago but i just didn't have the time. Anyways, if any of you have pictures of your rocksliders I'd like to see them. Also, what thickness did you use? All I'm sure of right now is that I'm using square tubing and welding it to the frame instead of bolting.

I don't have an Ex but pics of my sliders are buried in this forum somewhere. I used .120 wall 1 3/4" mild steel round tubing and welded straight to the frame.
Most people go with .250 wall square tubing with round tubing outriggers or kickouts whatever you wanna call em. Bolting or welding them to the frame is purely a preference thing IMO. Enough people have made sliders and posted pics on here to get some good ideas from so happy hunting :thumbsup:
 






How ya like these! :D

Oh...Iguess you wanted to see them finished :rolleyes: You'll have to wait :p
 












Blee you'res are exactly what I'm going for, and it looks like stic-o's got the same idea too. Thanks for the links, I'd read through some of them before but I read through them again and decided on pretty much the same design as you Blee, but with 3/16 instead of 1/4th.
 






Here's mine. They're not on an X though :)

1" ID, 3/16" wall thickness
