I've been thinking about something like this.

I never really noticed just how much ground clearance nerf bars take until I read this article and started looking at all the trucks around me.

Anyone know of a rock slider made for the new body style X-cab Silverados?  Something like this?

I need some steps but could use some that would provides some protection too.  Not like this:

Some companies do make them, but they are not specifically for the silverado, so It will require a lil' work to get them in

WOW, Never expected anybody to mass produce or produce something like this.

Well, what you need to 2 or 3 sizes of DOM tubing.... Small sheet of 3/16 or 1/4 (my choice is always 1/4) plate. Welder and a tubing bender (or at least know somebody with one)....

I would make them...... You could even make it mount to the frame using existing holes in the frame.
