LOL. It might have been in low range but I know for a fact the lockers were off, because when she started I directed her to turn them on, and she turned them off FU big man. But I'm glad you can drive better than a teenage girl

Charles I want to say it was my fault about the lockers you asked if the locker switches where down I thought they where.

She is a good driver just needs more time behind the wheel and maybe get a better driving boots

As for the hole itself everybody knows that the hole in the morning isnt the same hole at the end of the day.

all the holes , i called them the 3 amigos’ had been beaten up by the end of the day.
some big trucks with big wheels just dug them up.

Thanks for the replies and the pics.

I ended up putting the rear bumper back on. Houston is the rear ending capitol of the world. I would rather they slide into a ball hitch that nothing at all.

I had actually heard Barry's house is the rear-ending Capitol of the world.

I like what I did with my bumper ends. More sliders than bumperettes. 1/4" steel, but if I were to do over, I think I would change everything to 3/16 (all my sliders/bumpers are 1/4" thick--I think that is a bit of wasted weight). I also ran 1/4" steel all the way from side to side over the rear cross member and mounted a dixon/bates to it as well.

Kudos Chris, that is very clean.

If you are worried about being rear ended, just drive around with a pintle hitch on the back.

I like the bumperettes (and agree 3/16 would be fine) but I'm not a fan of the plate across the back. After having seen how the nas bumper traps dirt and causes the cross member to deteriorate I'd be concerned the plate would do that but 10x worse.

I hear your concerns about the plate and corrosion, but the chassis was coated with PPG DP90 primer and then 2part epoxy paint and I am in Colorado plus the rear chassis corroding is typically a factor of the wheels spitting dirt/mud into the recesses on the other side of the chassis from the plate. I did the plate mainly for the Dixon/Bates to additionally distribute load (and the sliders and rear tire carrier)--probably overkill and I keep my eye one rust. Good concern, though.

For those that want to "emulate" (I am flattered) the sliders, the way I did it was to take foamcore board and make templates right on the bumper and then use these as templates for the steel. I then put the steel templates right on the corners of the truck and tack welded them in-situ to make sure the fit right then welded them all up. Took 1 day for both. I really like them a lot--they were really fun to make and I think are one of the coolest add-on's I have done.

One more thing--I trimmed the rear body panel to fit these. I also added a run of 3/8" or so square steel to the very top outside edge of the slider to finish off the seam between the slider and the body panel. I did this after the fact as I didn't like the body panel "flopping" around--I wanted it to look cleaner.

Sorry to hijack, but I really like the tire carrier as well. Did you fab it as well? If so would you post some more pics of it as well. Thanks.
