if i bought two sticks of tubing to build my sliders it would have cost more plus the labour and welding materials my sliders pre made were 180

Ford sells them as accesories. They call them nerf bars.
I get what i want/make, but then it's cheap for me having the tools and the labour in hand.

Oh, just sayin.

I have a bender, notcher, plasma cutter, welder, bla bla bla and I still just buy em for 180 bucks. Just not worth the time to make em imo

But if your not working or have lots of time on your hands save a bit of cash and make them yourself

i would make them but i have no fabbing skills lol. i was looking at getting some trail gear ones but as far as i know i have to extend the bars going to the frame because the ranger frame in narrower then the toyota frame.

the main legs that weld to the frame come about 6" or more longer then needed for a toyota, im sure they would be long enough for a ranger

so buy the pre fab ones and get someone to weld them on for you save yourself some time :)

Make your own , bolt on shit sux then u go out wheeling and everone has the same thing as you , I custom built my sliders as well as my whole truck at the end of the day you feel good cuz you built it and there one of a kind and work just the way you want them too , just my 2 cents

i biult my own as well. had fun doing it and you wont find another like it. i dont bump and piviot trees. so i biult them acordingly. you will never see them unless you look under. and i can jack on them and its a full size. not to mention the amount of frame flex that is gone.

the trail gear ones will fit the legs are long enough
and i have all the shit to build them as well
but sometimes its cheaper to buy pre fabbed ones
