well i decided to but the bullet and go with it. Im doing a new cage sliders and some paint so i figured now would be the time to do it. Im doing full crushers with pieces on the rockers as well. Both pieces are being done out of 1/8th inch steel. Also they are being done on a roller instead of step bending to avoid the creases.


also probably going to go with some kind of led lighting in the stock location being as i constantly break the stock lenses and get water in them

also the cut on the crusher is going to follow the door line not stay straight as it is in the picture

Looks great. The step bending is what has always kept me away from the ones that are available, that and the diamond plate.

Nice.

Warrior Products does an FJ40 corner that is not diamond plate. It's not as thick as yours, but ok.

That seems like a deal. I wonder if one could talk them into selling them blank without wheel cutout. I'm going to have to look into these further.

I did my corners in 1/8" steel. Welded the leading edge in place on the rig and just heated the metal and bent it around the corners, tacking top and bottom as I went. Actually, I let someone else do the heating while I did the sledgehammer bending part!

Radius wasn't perfect, but definitely not step-bent looking either.
