Toyota rock armor

(Archived from Sunday, February 20, 2011)

Last week Monzo Speed was employed to treat this 1985 Toyota Pick Up with some rock protection. To better save hard earned dough the rocker gaurd panels were bought from Trail Gear. Made from 1026 DOM tube these rock sliders are 1 3/4″ OD with .120″ wall thickness. There are 3 attachment points for each slider fully MIG welded to the frame. I made the rear bumper from plain HREW tube also 1 3/4 OD .120″ wall to match the sliders. The design is simple and plain. Some character was added to the frame horns and by way a 24 lightening holes. More tubes will be added as the truck grows. Stay tuned for front end madness as its stuck somewhere in UPS land…
