ext. cage/rock slider mounts?

Whats the best way to mount rock sliders to the frame. Weld straight to the frame? Looking for ideas and experience. I plan on building some rock sliders and building an external cage, the cage will mount to the rock sliders in 2 places on each side plus front and rear mounts.

Re: ext. cage/rock slider mounts?

The nerf bars that are on my zook are bolted to the frame. I dont have a picture, but the large tube has a large (2"x 1/4" thick) plate bolted to each inner side of the spring mounts on the zook. There are 2 nice flat spots there on each side. Maybe I'll take a picture later...

got zook?

Re: ext. cage/rock slider mounts?

hey slowpoke the best way that we have come up with is to move the braces all the way out to the factory body mount. if you take a look at jai birds rig you will see that they are all the way to the mounts and welded to the frame and the braces that the factory used to mount the body. it is real strong it you tie it to the frame and the brace. i hope this make some sense. later mike

Re: ext. cage/rock slider mounts?

Good lookin cages you guys built. Is that 1 1/2" OD that you used? Thats what I was planning on going with...1 1//2" standard wall pipe. Do not have access to benders and such. May go with a combination of pipe and tubing to save some weight.As I understand your post Mike, you welded to the fact. body mount and to the frame.

Re: ext. cage/rock slider mounts?

you got the idea right.this cage is 1 1/4 pipe[sec 40] but i use 1 5/8 .120 wall tubing normally. but this one was bent up on a cheap harbor fright bender. the tubing is the same as 1 1/4 pipe and it is cheaper to. and you can bend it with the 1 1/4 pipe dies,runs about 30 cents a ft. later mike
