square tubing rock sliders

Here is a set of square tube rock sliders that i made for my buddy mike(trowbocop). We decided on square tubes to get a more bulky look.

Those look nice..have a little angle to them rather than looking like a rectangle and plain

i like em. i would round the corner where it is sharp at the angle on either end. safer..and would look more custom i think. then i'd buy a set from you!

I am looking at building something similar. Question for ya, what are you cutting your square tubing with. I'm looking for a nice cut but don't have the moola to buy something like a plasma cutter. TIA

but how much of a gap is left at the bottom of the door
and slider surface... when that's opened ?

the pictures make it look kinda close, but I can't tell from the pics.

The tubing is 1.5" x 1.5" with 0.120 thickness. The angle is not as sharp as it looks on the pic so there is plenty clearance between the bottom of the door and the slider.

For these I actually used my trusty angle grinder. You just gotta make sure you cut it straight!

maybe you could give me some real numbers and not a politician's answer.

I've looked at the pics numerous times...
and maybe those don't show well...
but the sliders position looks like the door(s) would narrowly miss.

And tho' your sliders probably would deflect less then others might...
I'd suspect they still would.

I've guided trucks thru boulders that wedged both sliders up.
like a teeter-toter if you will...
The operator couldn't get his doors open...
and I had to harass 'im a bit for that...
before helping of course

Wanted to let you know, I already had these attached to my frame, and Kevin finished them off for me. He did a way better job than what had been previously been done.

Here are the before pics:




Tacodell- I'll open the door and take some pics and measurements today, and let you know.

I'm just annoyingly curious.
