    just built these for a customer, he wanted something similar in looks to the thin walled bolt on steps you see everyday but a little bit tougher in case they ever see some off road action. Let me know what you think, constructive criticism is always appreciated, after all there is always room to improve.

    sorry for the crappy cell phone pics he is supposed to come by soon so I can get some real pics.

    They're side steps. Putting the little off-shoots on there instantly removes them from the slider category. They're nice for simple low profile side-steps. I would not do any real wheeling with them.

    Looks like really nice work to me. I wanna find someone who can do this for me but with oval shaped tubing.

    Yeah, he's right - can't slide on those, youll bump up against the steps and they will get ripped right off.

    1/8" wall, 2" outside diameter welded to the frame. For heavy duty offroad sliders I weld them first to a .25" plate diamond and then that to the frame but since these were not supposed to be ultra heavy duty they are just welded to the frame sans plate. Still plenty strong though, jacked the truck up from them to test them out.

    I agree, not real sliders, hahaha believe me I tried talking him into some hardcore sliders with kick outs but he wanted the steps for looks and for his girl.
