So my girls brother is a "professional" welder. (I use the term loosely) He agreed to assemble and install my rock sliders for me. In exchange for a case of beer (awesome, I know). So I showed him all the pieces, the mounting plates, legs, and sliders, and how they go together. I explained that the welds needed to be done right as these are designed to support the weight of the vehicle. "No problem", he says. "I've done a few others before". So, I leave, fully confident. 3 hours later, I come back and he hands me the box containing the mounting plates?? "I didnt need these", he says. He welded the legs directly to the frame! And thought it would look really nice to angle the sliders down, twice the distance I requested. And they arent centered. Then she gets ????y because I got nasty with him. Can you believe this crap?!?!?!?
Oh, yeah. I almost forgot. He didnt shorten the legs so that the sliders are fit properly under the truck. GOD HELP ME!!! At least his welds are nice.
