    So, after reading the thread on pics and ideas for sliders on 40's, I'm looking for some information on ones for 60's.

    My neighbor is completely building up a mini, I mean this thing has been totally dismantled and he's doing drive shafts, front-end stuff, the bed is off, 35 Swampers on on...etc... Point being that I've been seeing the blue glow of his welder into the nights. I want to ask him to weld me up some sliders for my 87 FJ60. (Slee's are what I'm looking for but don't have that kind of dough).

    Questions:
    1. Can you post some pics of sliders you have, you like or have fabricated?
    2. Does anyone have plans/dimensions?
    3. Anything to be aware of? Clearances, proximity to fenders, rockers, etc..?
    4 What is right material, and cost?
    5 What is a reasonable amount of money to spend on material and 'payment' for my neighbor? I don't want to insult him, Slee's are like $595.

    Thanks!

    Profit's Cruisers is like 5 hours or so from ya (they're in Delta, CO). Here's a pic of they're 60 sliders. I like 'em. I emailed him about them and IIRC, they were something like $250. I was gonna do 'em, but I decided to try and make my own.

    Also, check out the Toyota Rock Slider Round Up (though it's a little outdated--there's a lot more options out there now). Anyway, its got some good ideas anyways.

    No offiliation to any of them...blah...blah...

    Oh, these are sweet too. Jim Brantley's. Custom made. I like the integration of the side bars that hook up to the bull bar. These are kinda of what mine are going to eventually be like.
