well it just bottoms out less.. in the sand going up sand hills/dunes less drag keeps the momentum going! plus with more clearance and articulation.. you know what that means!

Sorry peoples not on yet, they have been all made up, the mounting plates have all been welded to the chassis, so no i'm in the process of sanding and painting them, with any luck they'll be on by the weekend

Well i'll give you the full shibango when the photos are up. Should be tomorrow as i've just put the final coat of anti rust and primer on 3 coates. Tomorrow i'll put the three coates of black on and vella! Bolt em on and slide away. But to answer your question, i have drilled and tapped two holes in 9mm plate (6 plates) then they have been welded to the chassis and the actuall sliders have a 13mm hole so i just bolt them onto the plates.

Finally finishedFinally my rocksliders are done. I started with 12 mild steel plates all measuring 10mm x 80mm x 110mm. Once these were cut i drilled and tapped 12mm holes, in 6 of the plates in opposite corners. the other six copped a 13mm hole in matching corners. Then i cut six lengths of mild steel box section 50 x 50 x 6mm (these to be the outriggers) one end of each was cut a a 35 degree angle. This angled end was then welded to the plates with the 13mm holes, facing the 110mm edge (photos will explain). Then i cut grooves in the ends of the outriggers for the actual slider rail to sit in.Next i decided where i want the mounting plates and had them welded to the chasis, and retapped them to prevent binding due to the heat from the weld, just incase there was some slag or distortion. I then bolted the outriggers on and cut some 50mm x 6mm tube and welded that to the outriggers. Unbolted them and welded some elbows on the end to neaten it up (spewin i only had 3 so i'm missing one till i get my hands on another, its not to noticable).Then came the fun job of cutting back the surface rust on the metal and priming it with 3 coates of red oxide, once dry another 3 coates of jet black. Just gotta get me hands on some grip tape (on the way) to put on the rails so they can be used as side steps. They where then bolted to the the chassis plates using grade 8.8 high tensile bolts and single spring washers with neva-seize on the threads to prevent binding.I've designed mine so they sit about 20mm below the chasis rail but still offer adequate protection for the sills. I didn't like the look of side steps so i chopped 70mm of of the out riggers, now they are purely there for chassis and sill protection. Cheers to PJ for doing the welding. Here's the photos, enjoy

oh and all that black stuff around the mounting plates is sikaflex to stop any water getting between the tapped plate and the chassis
