    I have both a mig and tig welder, I'd prefer to use some scrap tubing, beginner at welding. My main concern is how to mount them to the frame. :confused:

    Just make some sliders. They look better and they will protect your truck. You can weld or bolt them to the frame. Side steps come with the mounting holes that you would use to bolt to your frame. If you really want side steps you'll need to find someone with a set and take measurments. You can probably find a used set for $75 or so. When I removed mine, that's how much I sold them for.

    damn yea i was thinking of just making some sliders :/ but my gf has to get a running start to get in and its not even that tall of a truck just not used to it since my old one was way smaller. SO i guess I'll do the sliders and tell her to suck it up. I'll post pics when I figure something out. Thanks man.
