Building own Rock sliders

Post by AJ Dup » 14 Jan 2010 22:13

Hi Guys

I want to build my own rock sliders and need some :helpsign: from you guys I want to build something like this
Image

and the brackets like this
Image

Ek het gedink om 50x75x4mm rect tube te gebruik op die sy vir die sliders en 100x8mm flatbar vir die brackets wat vas bout teen die chassis.
En die selfde rect tube te vat om die bracket te maak.
Ek wil 3 of 4 bracket per slider gebruik (wat dink julle?)

Sal dit sterk genoeg wees?

AJ,daai lyk fris genoeg.Ek hou van die tubing reg onder die kar se bakwerk.Drie brackets sal dit doen.Daai brackets lyk baie sterk.Passop net vir te swaar.
Baie mooi. :thumbup:

Sou miskien net die supports wat op die "U-brackets" vas is wyer gemaak het, m.a.w. skuins op laat loop het van die onderkant van die U-Bracket na die onder kant van die Tubing. Dit sal die buigmoment op die U-bracket beter versprei en nader aan die hoeke bring?

Tjaart, are you not worried that you'll get "hung-up" on those flat bar braces running vertically down near the chassis brace,i fear it may catch?. I must say that i really like your sliders, its a simple design and i like the slim bar work which hugs the body nicely. Russ

Check out the DIY rockslider kit from Uys (Stofpad4x4)

http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/sho ... hp?t=53843

Don't know if he's designed one for the Patrol but I love the pre-fabricated parts that you just weld together.

Can you galvanize then powdercoat these sliders or would that not work ?
