I sorta want To get square sliders, my bumpers are gonna be plate, and I think round sliders would look funny.

But 4x inno doesn't make the cheap sliders out of square.

i understand overkill and agree for sure. advantage of this go-round is that you can test out the aesthetics and switch it up the second round if you don't like something.

you really think there will be enough rocks to dent sliders?

Yeah, I was hoping that with no bending it'd take a shorter amount of time to make.
I might make my own, but my winter break is filling up quick.

1. They(meet planners) said I NEED sliders for this place. And I plan on following the people with F/R lockers and full armor in hopes that my short wheel base makes up for the open/open duffs.
2. Truth about the price.

Ima make mine with kick outs that will be pretty...noticeable... Since I'm trying to go for a design I haven't seen before

Maybe you'll like or love em and decide you want round ones or maybe it'll just lock in your mind that you want square ones

needing sliders and needing sliders because of rocks are two entirely different things. your sliders could save your ass 10 times that weekend and never see a rock.

So im pretty much just bolting these on for this trip and they'll proly goto the scrap bin after I get back LOL.

Unless they hold up better than expected. But I doubt it
Yeah, I've done a bit of welding in my day. I do get yo when you talk about working with what you got. I was not aware until reading the additional posts of the thread that you are on a time crunch for a wheeling trip. Gotta do what ya gotta do!
