started something new.

these are so easy to fabricate compared to the bumper. i have about 3 hours in these.





i have the plates cut to attach them to the frame. next thing i'm going to make are the links from the frame to the sliders. these will be bolt on or weld on.

Wow, they look really good for 3 hrs work. You The Man! How hard would it be to make replacement rocker covers shaped like the factory ones but made to be used as sliders?

anything can be done with enough time.

i'm a one man show. but i would guess if there was enough interest i would build some. i just don't want copy 4xgaurds design. i have a little better design that would protect better.

the problem i'm having is finding a metal shop that can bend my pieces. no one has a small enough brake to bend my bumper just right. i have to do a bunch of calling today. i can find plenty of places to laser cut. i just have not talked to enough people on the phone. today is the day though.

i have equipment.

the thing that is going to save my arse is farming out the pre-fabrication. it will save me loads of time. that way i can invest in equipment over time. i have the majority of what i need. i just need a few large pieces.

i have quite a few tools as it is.

theres just he big ones:

iron worker $25-50K
plasma cutter- $1500
brake- $500-$15K

i already own

miller dvi2 welder
pro tools hydraulic bender
pro-tools pro-nothcer
chop saw
sawsall
grinder
and a bunch of other stuff.

Like I said, I'm interesting in everything the 4.7 company is looking to offer at this time. It looks great and I can't wait to see the action shots on those!

Very interested to see those installed. Do you picture them as doubling for running boards? I'm still trying to find a decent solution for my 5 year old entering and exiting the vehicle.
