Default Rock Sliders...

Anyone use square tubing? 2x3? If so what thickness? Or round tubing the most preferred? Just seeing what everyone uses or has used... Going to pickup all the steel today before I start cutting this HEEP apart....

They turned out very nice. I set them up so the exocage could be tied in to them also makes a nice step.

Just make sure you have a good handle on them when installing them. I had them set up on Jack stands and when I went to adjust it the slider slipped off the stand. I stopped it from hitting the floor with my face

Here is the only pic I have on my phone.
