Nice sliders, I really like them. If mine don't hold up I will fabricate some frame mounted ones like the EVO sliders

Thanks I do too. Only 150$ for the pair, just to buy all the 25ish feet of DOM tubing. They work great, I mean the welds holding them to the frame are ugly as all heck, for some college kids doing it in their garage its not bad, and they are not going anywhere I've slammed full weight of the rig on them multiple times and they have held.

I like yours too, I actually had that idea, getting someones old Rubi sliders and adding to them. They look good too nice job!

Thanks. How come you spent so much for the tubing and how many feet did you buy. I bought a 20ft stick of the square tubing for $36 and only used about 12feet of it .

Hi Guys

Knocked this up one weekend, wanted to be able to provide a shelf for the four legged friends to enjoy the view plus to still have room below, also serves well to stop prying eyes not being able to see in the back. Shelf is from Bestop and made up custom bar work with wing nuts for easy removal.
Works well when on the Trail for MaxTrax, and stuff!

Looks like the Chuckwagon Box I made way way back when I was a boyscout. Was planning to do the same on my JKU and make it rails but also fully removable/free standing (for when I'm not in the field it's out of the JK). Attached it could be under a roofrack connected tarp. Then on rails beside it possibly an ARP(or other) fridge/freezer.

The other possibility is this

My front bumper is only partially homemade. I shortened the ends of the Mopar off-road bumper so that it didn't look like a skinny, old-time mustache.

These are photos of my crusher corners blended with my pure jeep sliders I made from a sheet of 3/16 steel and my 90Amp buzz box before I got my miller 211 auto-set :bleh:
There are also a few picks off the e-disc sway bar protection plate I made last year after installing best tops cheapo bumper this was made with some of the remnants of the 3/16 for the corners and some bolts from Tacoma nut and screw . :wings:

The last are photos of my 10$ 1.5 .120 DOM truss I bought out of the remnants bin here at Everett Steel. :rock:

Thanks! I used 1" sch 40 black pipe and a cheap HF bender. Not ideal, but it did the job.

It's all homemade. Bumpers, fenders, tie rod and drag link, tire carrier, skid plates, air tank, axles. Everything but the rock sliders because they were on it when I got it.

It's nice because I can make things the way I want them, and this way I can actually afford to do it.

Nice fenders David.

Thanks guys. I really liked the metal cloak, but didn't like how they didn't angle inward in the tops. I was going for the pissed off Yamaha raptor kinda look. Turned out exactly how I wanted them.

Here's a few more pics of the process

Lots of bends in just the right spots.
