Sliders for 110

RTE needs 2-3 months to build a set, what are my other options?

God knows Charles needs a set. We could take the ones off my truck to use as a patern.

I wanted to get them galvanized anyway so it would be a good reason to remove them.

I would like a second set for the 110 pickup.

Nice! Between the 4 of us (Doug, Dave, Charles and me) we have 3 welders, so if we can source the steel I'd think we could knock them out in an afternoon. I'll voluteer my driveway and shop as I've got multiple grinders, band saw, etc. as well.

Can anyone easily source the steel?

There's a commercial metal supply place up here by BWI.

1.5 x 3.25 x 73 rectangular tubing. They project about 1 inch out from the body.
Going to wait for the weather in order to get underneath and get mount dimensions.

My thought is to go with thick wall material.

I'll see what they have. Been meaning to stop in their yard and see if they carry 4x8 sheets of 5 bar anyway.

The SG ones on the 90 are 2" x 3" OD rectangular tube -- I think .190" wall thickness.

they should have 2.5 x 3.5 x .25 which is what I would use. certainly no less than 3" for a LWB

anyway it looks like a cool place, I'd like to drop by their yard

I'd like a set. I'll send you some beer / pizza money and a picture of me so I can participate in the fun.

Yeah I am game for sure. I plan on modeling mine on my Bill Burke sliders I have on my D90. The only thing stopping me ordering the steel is the wall thickness - still not sure what's best.

If there is a place local to you Doug, that might be better (at a minimum no shipping) but I have bought DOM tuning from metal express and the price including delivery was quite reasonable.

http://www.metalexpress.net

But I'm way behind on projects. I have to get my D90 ARB/gearing project done first, then plan on doing a bunch of welding stuff (sliders, rear X member, patch outrigger, rollcage bits) and yank the top off the 110.

But I'm sorely missing my D90 with the good weather

Its because you go trail riding every weekend Charles. Hardly a legitimate complaint.

Although there is real satisfaction in building your own stuff, DAP has a set for around $300 that are galvanized.

Not every weekend (although I wish). Life gets in the way.. last weekend I had to cart the kids to NC for a dance competition. This weekend I did an overnight back packing trip in the Shenandoah (a loop with about half of it on the AT)!

And believe it or not, despite this being mothers day, I might even get a [very] little shop time in today - the first time in weeks!
