Model With Rock Sliders

Rather than make the rock sliders straight as on most 4x4s and buggies, I wanted to give them a high center. Having wheeled with Tim Hardy and his battered Suzuki Samurai (see our Ultimate Adventure coverage) I recognized that his rock sliders have been battered up into an arc after years of abuse and rarely got caught on things. Perhaps raising the breakover angle out at the edges of the chassis to follow the floorboards may work as well.
