Looks great, the 3/16 should take a good amount of abuse too.

Damn I like it. Those are very nice and I think the function of them will be something as you have best of both major pros when it comes to sliders. Have the boatside type of clearence by gaining 2"s and also still a great mid pivot point on them tight turns in the hardwoods! good job man.

Well, I'm pretty burnt out on the rockers. So I decided to build the bumper.


Here's the start. It will be another winch bumper.

Bumper update.







Once I get some tube I can finish it up. Also when I get a winch I can cut the hole for the fairlead and drill mounting holes.

Doors are back on. Cut roughly 2" off the bottom.



Probably add some tube to these, to keep the trees off the doors.

I have been seeing this on the Internet lately and I like it. Kinda wish the concept was around when I did mine.

Ya, the main reason I did it is due to the driver side being smashed in at the B-pillar. But in the end, I'm glad I cut it up that high.
