    Default Triton Rock Sliders

    So after much deliberation I have decided to have some rock sliders made for my 2010 Triton Double Cab, 3.2 DiD


    I did a lot of scratching and searching around and finally settled on this design that I found on NewTriton.net....so all credit goes to the gentleman that uploaded this content there...

    So here are my pics of the progress. I went for a test fitting today and so far so good.


    I am going to put 3mm sheet steel on top instead of the checkered plate, as I am not a fan of checkered plate....the stuff belongs on a Defender


    I will then have it galvanized and painted with stone chip.


    All the work is being done by a good friend who I used to work for...he has a full workshop and mainly does stainless steel braai's, balustrades and stairwells, etc. So I have chosen to use him to source all material and to do the manufacturing

    It looks very nice and professional, good job. How much did they cost?

    I was quoted R6100 to manufacture, galvanize and paint. I will do the fitment myself

    Okay, not bad I suppose, and they give the Triton a very mean look too

    Yip, they do look nice can't wait for them to be completed so I can go do some 4x4ing again


    The original aluminium ones are just too soft. Mine have a few dents but if anyone is willing to come and fetch them, they can have them for free.

    Looks nice are the holes in the square bar for a high lift jack? I haven't made allowances for that on my rock sliders. Also didn't want to go through the effort of calculating the correct angle for the round bar to make sure it is not in the way of the doors

    But that wasn't necessary... All lengths, angles, cutting profiles are included in my FREE rockslider design drawings...
