What size plate are you guys using to attach these to the frame? 6"x6",8"x8" smaller, larger? And do these plans work for both left and right sides?
sweet thanks alot. i will be giving this schematic to my cousin and having him fab them up for me.Generally whatever fits. Look to be around 5x5 and work from there. That schematic fireguy has was from my install. Couple things I would suggest if I were to do this again:
1) little triangulation from the legs to the mounting pads.
2) a lip under the lower part of the frame for the mounting pads.
A nudder option here is to do the opposite....since Plug had the andy scarr style (so did I before these), I put those holes in the body to good use....
My first trip out with my new sliders worked great. The area that pushed my door in without them, not the same story with the sliders on. They do their job in pushing you off stuff. However, I didn't count on having a root sticking out of the embankment actually push my sliders down away from the body (actually bent the mounting plates at the frame).
So, I reworked them by using the 3 holes in the body I previously had already from the andy scarr's. 2 bolts front and back have 7/16ths bolts going through and attaching to the slider body, and the center bolt has a rubber bumpstop cut to proper size. They now sit right against the bottom of the body and make no noise, and it would be difficult to pry them down again.
