Oh, I'd say a lot of us would be willing & interested in building a set of sliders. At least, I know I would, or will? as soon as my truck is back on the road. Hell, in general, you'll all see more of me, and not just because I'm wearing a kilt
x2 everything Molly said about kits not fitting right the first time. Like anything fabricated, they're close
, and the difference between close and perfect is usually several hours with a grinder. The setup Ben has, maybe from CBI? is great, but took some time to sort out...including getting the brackets cleaned up. I could barely keep an arc lit on the brackets before they were stripped...they looked clean, but the rough surface was full of mill scale.
You have a new Tacoma...frame is similar to my Tundra. Far easier, I think, to simply use a piece of 6" x ??" x 1/4" strap down the rail, bolted strategically with backing plates, holes to clear rivets, and then just weld the slider to the strap. Should've done it on my truck, but we used individual plates instead of a complete strap...by the time all was said & done, there was little difference...maybe 12" long piece, total...between the plates and a strap.
