Talking Houston, We have lift off!

I've been building some rock sliders in my college fab shop over the last month and a half...... here they are, finally painted and on the truck!
Material is .120" wall 2" HREW tube, and .120" wall 2x3" HREW tube along with 1/4" thick 'L' bracket mounts and gussets. They're hella beefy!
Starting with a few raw pics during the build......





Lift off! I was itching to finally throw my hi-lift under and see if there was any flexing..... there wasn't any at all with the full weight of 1/2 the truck on it.

Thanks guys.

I'd love to make more, but until I have my own shop equipment and a jig or something to make the process quicker, it doesn't look like its gonna happen.

Looks awsome man, good job. Have been wanting to do this myself but lack the bender. Did you use a tubing bender or did you heat/ bend it on something round?

Fuck, I'm on the way there to pick up some! Throw another set like those together, I'm on the way. Got GPS. See ya in about 27 hrs. That should be plenty of time since you got it down now huh?

LOL. I think I have twice that much into them. They just seemed to take forever but you're right, now that i've done one set I know all the measurements and I could probably do more sets in less than 1/2 the time. If I had 10 or so sets to do and just cut all the pieces, jiged them up and thew them together like that, then I can see doing 2 sets in a day(with the legs and gussets already welded in).
