    Haha im in the santa rosa area. Idk if im going to make another set after ours, these took me about 5 months just cause ive been so busy. But if i make any more they would probably be quicker because i dont have to do all of the fabing. But if you want i can try and draw up a number for you and let you know.

    waaaaay too close to the body and lower door line. The cab and chassis flex when offroad, these look like they're definitely gonna be hitting something.

    Oh i know i noticed that too, but they are not nearly as close to the door jamb as they look and the and that is close to the body is going to be cut off at a 45 so that it clears better and follows the body lines better.

    Thanks for all the input guys (good and bad). That's exactly the reason I posted this up here. The outside rails and risers are only tack welded on so it would be extremely easy to change the angle and come out a little more and have a little more clearance. That is at about 43 degrees. I was thinking about going to 33 or 30. Either way they are going to be on a truck by Saturday morning. Hmm I see some long nights ahead.

    If a rock catches the front of the box tubing you are stuck. You might want to incorporate some angles to help the slider ride over obstacles at the front of the truck. I like the idea though.

    are you going to add any cross pieces at the ends of the 2 long bars?

    i think you called them risers

    id add 2 more of those before you finish...1 at each end

    As for the angles, I planned on cutting the ends off at a 45. And I was thinking that about the cross bars/risers too.
