I'm about to fab up some sliders for my '96. I took some preliminary measurements tonight and it looks like the driver's side front is going to be the limiting factor regarding the size of the plate I can use. My plan is to duplicate what many of y'all have done, but in particular, Shadofax's setup using 1.5"x3" rectangular tubing. I'm trying to make them as symmetric as possible since a buddy is going to cut everything for me at his work.
Here are some pictures of where I'm thinking of mounting the plates, which will be 3" wide x 4" tall x 1/4" thick. I also plan on using 1.5"x.25" square tubing for the "outriggers", as Shadofax did. I'd appreciate the input of those who've done this....
Space is limited here on the driver's side front. There are two bolts (outlined in blue) that look like they could be removed, but if they can't, I'd locate the 3x4 plate as shown. Should I just put the slider outside of the fender mounting flange that hangs down? Regarding the fuel lines on the other side, I hope to avoid them with the holes and hardware and not have to relocate them.
Driver's side rear will be a little snug snaking it between the e-brake cables, as others have done:
....and passenger rear look straight forward.
If y'all see any issues with this or have suggestions, please let me know.
