get some flat stock (cheap) and run stringer beads on it until you can lay dimes. Then move up to joints and the like. Practice on scrap before welding an actual project.

We really need to.. I've ran a few beads but if someone asked me to weld something together it would be bad.

To be honest, pretty much all sliders would be fine for the kind of off-roading we do.. Today was our first day to an actual offroad park.

But it may be getting pretty serious soon because the trails today were intense.

Nuther vote for Trail Gear as the best bang for the buck. There are lots of really good quality sliders out there, but they cost quite a bit more. I'd put my TG sliders up against any of them and even if mine wore out first I could buy another set and still be cheaper than a lot of them.

I've put mine through some big hits on two different trucks and they've been great.

You won't be disappointed. There are other good sliders out there but I can't argue the best bang for the buck is TG hands down. Mine are still taking a beating and working great. They don't get abused as much during the winter except for the constant blasting from road salt. This spring/summer will be another fun wheeling season and I'm sure the sliders will see plenty of abuse between a couple trips to Moab, the Rubicon and other places.
