Default FJ80 Slider Build

Started this project on the 4th weekend. My neighbor (JC) owns a well built FJ80 but needs sliders as the aftermarket offers very little to FJ80 owners. We started with 2"x3" square 3/16" wall for the main slider. Capped the ends and bent up some 1.5" .120 wall tube for the rub rails and kick outs. We have been using my MetalTech sliders as a starting point but making changes to suit his needs. The rub/kick up are not angled up in order to make a better step for his wife and 5yr old. JC has about half of the outriggers built. I'm happy he has been doing all the grinding work there. This project has been fun so far but Speski OffRoad will definitely not be putting these into production.
