    ok first off, I weld/fab for a living but rarely have time to be in the shop to completely design my own set. let alone be around when my steel comes to claim it so it doesn't get cut and built for another job.

    so, with a large gulp of pride, I must ask, who could build me a partial, cut-legs-to-fit, weld-on set of quality sliders at a fair price? google searches pop up many vendors, but none from some of the "locals" I see on here occasionally. anybody interested? my only demand as far as a "quality slider" is that I can support the weight of the truck from any point on it.

    bolt ons are a cool option too, but I would rather cut off welded ones and leave the "scabs" opposed to having a bunch of not factory holes in my frame to fill in the event that I had to remove them. come on California fabbers I know your out there;) please help!

    Wasn't going to say anything, as just got home after a good 10 hours of 4x4 activity, but I can say, in a most positive manor, and with the highest recommendation based on my set, that you find it pretty hard to beat Jerry at BAMF.

    Am constantly getting compliments on my set.

    Am I biased? Yes, I see mine every single day and it gives me a happy feeling.

    I like mine, but like you said, it is time consuming and if you're using good material, and your own time, its def cheaper to buy. Mine took almost 6 months to complete, lol. Of course that was a couple hours here and there. :eek:

    Visalia, my hometown!! You're right next to Trail Gear, they're up in Fresno. I have no experience with theirgear but I've read some people who run their sliders on this site and other offroading site. Some people love them, some people hate them. User name BoxRocket runs them if I remember correctly, give him a PM.

    I see you have moved on to greener pastures lol good for you. I like the trail gears, especially being local to me, but their order form is messed up in such a way that I am confused on which size to get for my access cab. gotta call tomorrow. problem is work is allways 10hrs plus right now. even on the weekends at the moment!

    Lol yeah much greener and more rain. Is it confusing on their site? I went with 4xInnovations and it cost me total of $310 shipped with DOM and kickouts to Oceanside, CA when I was stationed at Camp Pendleton.
