    I finally hacked off the nasty rock sliders that came on my truck when I bought it. I’ve been avoiding doing so for 7 years because of the way they were welded on made it a nightmare. After 5 hours with the plasma cutter, die grinder, sander and DA my frame rails look brand new. I then started my new, low pro sliders that act as a subframe to tie everything together.

    I did the main tubes out of 1.75” DOM and cut the ends at 45’s so I could slip fit the 1.5” ends in. I did it this way so it would fit nice to the 1.5” rear section and it gives it a neat look
