Main Slider Tube

The main tube for your fullsize rocker guards should be at least 1¾-inch, 0.120-wall tubing. DOM and chromoly slide over rocks best and are the most durable but HREW (welded-seam) tubing can be used too, although it is a little softer. We’ve built several rockers where we welded the main tube to the body, however this will usually cause them to tear the sheetmetal when the chassis flexes so it’s best not to weld them as shown here.
