Quick update

I had to do a set of slider/steps for my electricians Tacoma. He was headed down to baja with a team for some prerunning. So I didn't have time Friday to finish a set of steps for good pictures.

I will have good pictures up today before sending these sets out for powder coat.

I second that!

What were you guys thinking for the mechanism? I can play around with it. But idk if you guys are looking for some thing electric, or what degree of ease. I found that James Duff makes song golding steps but it works on a pull pin.

OK so go ahead and laugh, I'm at work and only have a sec to jot down this idea. I personally hate the hoop step look and it can catch on things, what I would like to see someone make is as follows in my very realistic artwork below. so basically a slider (can be simplified to tube type or more of a solid slider) angled at around 45 degrees and a whole big hoop type step would pull up and angle down to a step looking similar to what Aluminess sells in the open position. Then to close you would just lift it upward and slide it into closed position tucked out of the way, maybe with some sort of simple spring loaded stainless pin that holds it closed towards the rear tire area to keep it cleaner from mud and road debris. Hopefully my vision makes sense, I should have drawn it better but hey it can at least get the wheels rolling, what do you all think, let's design this together.

I really like this idea. If it gains traction I'll definitely see what I can do.

I have a few questions...

Rock sliders-are you guys looking for weld in or bolt it. Some member have mentioned not tying to the frame but I don't see how not to for sliders.

Front prerunner type bumper- I see some use coil spring, some use leaf spring fronts. I'm having a hard time finding good pictures of where the front shackle ends up. I'd like to design a bumper that works for both types of suspension.

I see this hole is use for some bumpers but I feel like it will get in the way of shackle placement? Here are some pictures. One from Google and the other from the van I have right now.

I'm not 100% sure what pictures 2 and 3 show, but if you just use the frame tabs as in picture 1, you'll have no issues interfering with any 4x4 conversion.
