But I doubt your sliders will ever have to deal with the forces we see in the shipyard...
Yeah, I still can't seem to get the hang of wrapping the corners right.. I went back and filled then all in And I ground the tips of the gussets down flush then wrapped the welds.

I wanted all round tube, but didn't have enough left. Only had 18 feet of round, and 21 feet of square. I'm not the happiest with the look, and they won't be the strongest. But they'll do for now..

I just had an extra foot and a half of tube and was worried about flex. The rear is going to get another support at the very back, so it shouldn't need any extra bracing..

Should I get new u-bolts? I already reused them when I had the OME aal installed.

Yep. This is Ricks. Drill and tap the top plate, then drill holes in the superbump pedestal. Then you can adjust or replace the bump without having to loosen the U bolts.

Mine are the same, but not nearly as clean
