Rear corner protectors

I finally got around to making some rear corner protectors. After I damaged the passenger side rear corner of course (that's how I roll).

I'm still interested in using 2" tubing for the side pieces, but since both of us are running NAS rear bumpers it will need to work with that.

Chucky, I have a shipment of .120 wall 2" tubing coming in on Tuesday - I think it runs about $3.50/ft.

I want to use rectangular stock not round- would like it to be somewhat close to the dimensions of my rock sliders. Is that what you had in mind Charles ?

I suffer from CRS so I'll have to go check, but I want mine to match my sliders too, but now that I think about it mine are 2.5x2.5 OD. Wolf, what's the OD on that tubing - 2 or 2.5?

I have enough scrap tubing for one pair iirc but don't recall the dimensions. I'll try remember to look tomorrow.

Whatever size it should be pretty to easy to get and shouldn't be too expensive since you only need 4-5ft I'd imagine.

The stuff I just got in is 2" round, not square/box. Gotta build a few roll cages.
