I am going to be building some, I am mid design right now. I have to get the metal cut and tube bent at a shop because I don't have the tools but I am welding, grinding, painting and drilling myself.

Heres a thread over at JF. good stuff. Leans Homemade Rock Sliders! - JeepForum.com

There are plenty more out there if you look, this one helped me a good bit.

BlackoutYJ, I am sure he could build you one since you asked so nicely haha. But by the time he shipped them I bet it would be cheaper to get someone local to build them the same. But its up to him.

Well he is fairly local to me.  and I'd love to build my own but lack of a welder and machinery won't help me much.

I'm in no big hurry. You know someone in park hills that builds them? Jathon Cruse by chance?

I know Shane somehow, maybe through my dad or a friend. And Duncan yes he's does slot of good work. Haven't had him build me anything but he is the cheapest to get a oversized tire mounted and balance.

Same is fine. And I know Andy as well now that you mention he has his own shop. I was just over there the otter day picking up a Power Stroker talking to him about swapping a carrier in my 8.8
