So hopefully if work goes as planned I will be able to take off my BL and make some sliders. I have them planned but I don't know where a good place to get the steel from. The only place I know of is in CS, western steel, and they didn't have much when I checked today. Anybody have any ideas where good prices for tubing are.

is that HREW or DOM????? i would think dom would be better than handrail for sliders....(handrail sucks to bend because of the seam)

That’s for HREW and that’s what most sliders are made out of... or at least that’s what mine are made out of and I beat the piss out of mine. As for bending it... if you bent it seem in its right at the same strength of DOM. but I can get anything you want.... I think DOM they want payment up front because they don't stock it. I think they said my price is 2.11 a foot for DOM but I’d have to call.

I would definitly buy quite a bit from you. I am making a light bar right now and then sliders and I will need a new bumper so I will have to get in touch and see what we can come up with. The place I went to only had 1.75in DOM in 3/16in wall.

after find out prices I would definitly buy 1.75 .12 HREW for sliders. Ill have to get some measurements for the amount. If the price is right on DOM i will also buy 30 feet of it after I make some measurments. Do you get good prices on plating?
