I've had my rock sliders sitting in the garage for over a month. My buddy had told me he'd be able to let me come over and use his welder but even with pestering on my end this has yet to happen. I'm planning a Moab trip for this month and I need to get these on. Anyone care to help me out? I can weld, I just need a welder. 110V mig would work perfect. Beer and pizza?

A big thanks to Steve, LD, and Will for helping me get these on. I told Steve these were a weld on deal... I was wrong, we had to do a bit of cutting as well, but he still helped me get them all on. Great guy, he even provided the beer and pizza. I kept him up till 2AM bull****ting and while I'll probably never get invited back :D I had a great time. Thanks again guys!

Thanks to everyone else who offered to help as well.

Here are some pictures:

Haha not at all, I felt bad when I realized how late it was. I'll get you a few more pictures, waiting on the paint to dry before I pull off all the masking tape and paper. I think the inside of my nose is completely coated in black paint now. They look great though.
