    I really wanted to get sliders for my truck but being a student its hard to be putting tons of money into my truck. for my senior project in auto tech chose to build some. I took a couple different designs from sliders I've seen on here, while still trying to keep it relatively simple. I did all the bending cutting and TIG welding they are not done yet but so far I'm pretty happy!

    ahh ok, but if you offroad a lot, maybe just rattle can it so you can touch up easy?

    Well, that's just what I do. It would be a PITA to have to keep powdercoating it ;)

    Road debris, salt, and sand sandblast mine and I have to hit them up with paint regularly... I actually wish I had bolt on instead of weld on... then I could take them off for maint.

    I was going to powder coat a few other things on my truck as well so I just figured I would throw those in the batch too
