    Has anyone bought or built a set of sliders that resemble the shape of the stock steps?
    1" or so tube welded to some angle and bolted to the body.
    I want to use the existing holes for mounting. With frame suppports of course.
    Should look something like this just using tube.

    they were made with the oem look in mind. however they're bent pipe and welded to the frame, complelety ignoring that front body mount.

    Here's a link to the sliders that are on my 40:

    The channels are good in stock at FaultlineFab. I had Simon bend the tubes to approximate the shape of the running boards. Some of the guys in my club think I should top them with diamond plate, but I like the open tube design just the way Simon made it.

    Maybe Woody can add my pic to the slider/protection page. :)

    Is Faultline Fab still around?
    I went to www.faultlinefab.com and this is what it said
    "The requested resource
    /
    is no longer available on this server and there is no forwarding address. Please remove all references to this resource."

    Poof and its gone.

    If you just want the channels, I can get those for you tomorrow. If you want tube bent and attached, I will have to work on that one.

    I want to build some like that for mine too. I was thinking of cutting up an old stock rollbar that I have which already has the bends in it. Some 3/16 flat stock and I would be in business.

    That's basically what I got from Faultline, except that Simon used a few smaller tubes between the channel and the outboard tube, instead of one big one. Hth.
