They look good, similar to mine (built by a guy in Brisbane for previous owner).



Mine have 3mm sheet panels in the bottom for additional protection, the only problem is that the slider fills with mud and crap. There's a small gap for drainage but it blocks up easily... I reckon alloy chequerplate on the top side would be the go.

Look good, I'll be building something similar over easter, but will have a scrub bar on it too.

Great work jplynch90, what do they owe you all up after buying the steel, plus wire/gas etc ?

And i cant see bolts for those mounts, nor do they look like "U" mounts ,how does that work ?



looking good mate, well done

Yours are still, by far the best designed sliders ive seen to date chuckles (hope one day i can have some the same? :D)

A4b they are u brackets. And no wasn't to hard but it's the fiddly bits that take time. I always underestimate how long things take so it took longer than I was hoping. All up took about a day and a half to make, that wasn't going flat out and had to work every thing out also

I removed a set of ARB side rails / steps (with the aluminium plate as a step) due to some damage and I'd like to know if it's feasible to modify them so they are just side rails without the step. They're still in pretty good condition but had been twisted up a bit and were pressing on the sills - previous owner was a bit rough. The sills are now repaired and I don't want to waste what I've got. I don't want side steps though - just rails. I figure if someone can use a welder (anyone better than me that is!), it should be easy enough to shorten the tubes that connect the outer rail to the brackets that attach to the chassis. Any comments? What type of place should I ask about doing it?

Fantasatic job mate. I'm looking at making a couple myself. Any chance you could post the cutting list?
Thanks for the great photos though they'll go a long way to making a big difference

:cheers:
