thank you johnnyJK... nice welding.

but, i would recommend just buying existing tubes.

rubi rails = $100
Poly perf tube kit = $260
Welding = $75 (thank you johnnyJK!!!) ( this takes too long to weld if you are going to pay someone what this is actually worth.)
rattle can bedliner / primer = $40

so for $475 i have these rails. they do their job. they provide a nice step. they will protect against rocks to a good extent. but for $100 - $150 more i could have had numerous steps that are frame mounted and can take more of a beating.

live and learn.

i love the way they look. we'll see how they hold up - not the welds, but being mounted to the body.

i am thinking of possibly having a bracket made to convert the rails from body mount to frame mount.
