Thanks


Got a little work done tonight, don't look like much, but they are my new sliders. 2x6 .187 wall and 2x2 .187 wall. I am planning on using all that new found 'space' to hold some compressed air. Think I might skin the bottoms just to be sure I don't mess em up right away.



Now I just need to find some helpers to grind the remnants of my old sliders off.....lol, you know who you are.

The whole welding to the frame, then cutting off what you welded, then having to grind the remnants blows nuts doesn't it lol.

Welp, said F it, didn't wanna wait for my helpers to grind the frame clean so I did it myself, then went ahead and put on the sliders last night(sorry Luc, I know you were looking forward to it haha), finished them up today after work. I guess I am happy with them, they are really sturdy so that is a plus, just not sure if I love the look or not. If I do put on an exo these will be a great foundation!

Anyway, here they are








time for some action shots, enough posing, lets go wheeling!

Alright, just ordered the Ruffstuff locks, $225, minus our 10% off, $202.50 isn't too bad! Then shipping is only $11.50, so only $214 to my door!

And here is a shot of my new to me FW 8.8



Just gotta decide if I'm gonna nut up and buy the Dutchman axles or just redrill mine 6 lug......
