    Default My Triton-Rocksliders project

    Here is my version of DIY Rocksliders for the Triton.
    I manage to finish the first phase of the build.














    The next phase, I will add some pipe to the side of the tubing for more protection and to serve as a step.

    Those look really well made.

    I would be worried about the space left open in the next phase.
    Little kid hops out, foot goes through the gap and HORRIBLE break on their lower legs.
    IMO leave it as it is or if you want the step, cover the hole so accidents cannot happen. Just passing advice that I followed.

    Enjoy the project!

    Nice looking, good job

    Why did you use round pipe and not square ?
    imho the square pipe is stronger.

    Looks Good, I'm hoping to start my very own Rockslider Project next week, but if the fishing is good they may have to wait a while.
    I have a slightly design in mind, I just hope it works out..
