Trigger enjoying the first trail ride on the new truck. Mud flaps scrapped on EVERY BUMP so I pulled them off and sold the following weekend.

Currently in Progress

Picked up a cheap bender so started making some hybrid sliders with a small kick out. Hopefully have them cleaned and painted by next weekend.


and while I had the bender out I started to make a headache rack but I'll finish that another time...

Well I got the sliders painted and bolted on, just need to drill and bolt to the bottom of the frame. Heres a horrible picture.



extra pic



Maybe I'll have some time soon to test them and get some better pics...
Damn it gets dark early!

Finally got the sliders painted and bolted, then I decided I needed to test them out but was too lazy to get the Hi-lift.





I'm pretty satisfied with the way they came out, now I don't have to worry about door dings at the mall!!

Thank you. Actually I have been really impressed with the durability of the Plastidip, I was cautious at first but after a few washes and couple hundred miles its really stood up.

Been working on my headache rack here and there, almost done!

Brackets I made to attach to bed rails.


All welded up.


Just need to clean it up and paint.

I used 1 1/2, .0120 tube, the same I used for the hybrid sliders. I have been using a Harbor Freight bender and it was easier to use the same size/die that I had already modified to work since the dies that came bender are made for pipe (I think, didn't have any pipe lying around to see if they fit better).

I know tubing is measured in the Outside diameter. And pipe is measured in inner diameter. I have plans for a light bar in the next week. Just cant decide if i wanna use 1 1/2 tube or pipe
