You guys needing sliders should pursue this!

Jamie, Winter is not on this board. Paul is, and Colin was.

I am going this Saturday to get my sliders made. I will try to get some pictures up of them Sunday. At this point I am not really sure what they will look like, but I do have have a good idea.

I am going to have 01Baja4x4's buddy Paul make them. We talked on the phone for a bit Sunday and he told me to bring it on down and he will hook it up. I will post the specs of the sliders after they are made this weekend.

The only thing I would have diffrentis make them go closer to the wheel wells. Or maybe they do and it's just the picture angle. How much did those run ya?

I had them made a little short in the front on purpose. I am going to be doing my front axle soon and upgrading to 35" tires. Then I will open the back of the front fender a little and make it look as if the sliders are not so short. It ran me about 300 for them.

Looking good Felix! I got my notcher this week and I was gonna try and get some sliders on before TDS but the drivers side is gonna be a little involved. My E-brake cable is smack dab in the middle of the frame rail, right where I need to weld my supports so I'll have to push the mount for the cable up a couple inches. Not a major deal but oh well. I'm impressed how well the notcher works, it tears right through the tubing with no problem...definately a good buy.

I got the one M-tech supply carries for $179...they actually have 2 models in that price range. One has an engraved degree scale on it and the other one has a degree scale on the sticker. I wanted the engraved one but they are on backorder so they gave me the other one with a mounting plate (normally $20 extra) for free. :D The mounting plate is so you can make your own stand and mount the notcher to it.

ona you got a bender? I'm ready anytime, along with my little welder, if its necessary. My buddy has everything, but I'm too lazy to drive up to LA. The beer sounds nice :D

The only thing I was concerned about on my truck was the e-brake cable, along with the fuel lines (on the inside) on the driver frame rail

I've got a Lincoln 220v Mig welder so all I need now is a bender which I'm getting with my tax return. I'd host a fab party if you don't mind the drive out here to the Palm Springs area and hopefully it isnt too hot by the time I get the bender. Fabbing up stuff in 100+ degree weather isn't my idea of fun:p I also have to find a local metal supplier, I know for sure there's one in Anaheim and I think one is in Irvine too but it would be nice to find one in my area.

As far as the E-brake cable and fuel lines are concerned i'm in the same boat. I have a cable mount by my radius arm mount which if I move up a couple inches should work without binding at the other end and as for the fuel lines, I forget how they are attatched to the frame exactly but I was thinking space them out with pieces of wood when it comes time to weld to the frame.
