they sell both flat discs and plug type ends as well.. i think they wanted lie a 1.50 for the flat 1.5 inch flat discs a piece.. completely rediculous... i was going to talk to my contact at Saskatoon metal and see how it would cost to get a pile of 2 inch, 1.75, 1.5 and 1 inch ones cut on their table.. i dont use these with any frequency but i wouldnt mind if a had 20-30 or so of each size sitting in my stock as when i start doing more tube work i will easilly go through them.. i need 4 1.5 inch ones at this moment actually as a start but will need a few 2 inch ones here soon as well.. i should just cut some out with my plasma.. 1/8 inch is more than fine but if 3/16 isnt much more i would go that way as well...
i think brad needs some as well...


I will get a price for you this week.


I had a pretty crazy couple of weeks with the wife's grandfather passing away, sorry for the delay on pricing for those caps.

If you wanted to order 20 of each size (1, 1.5, 1.75, 2) so 80 caps total I can sell them to you for:
1/8" $0.97 each
3/16" $1.06 each
plus tax
Obviously the smaller ones are worth less, the larger ones are worth more, but i received a "package" price.
If more guys want caps cut then put together a list of who wants what and if the order grows enough I might be able to get a little better pricing. We can also include other sizes if people need (1.25 for example).
Oh I should also mention that I would get these cut approx 1/8" smaller Od than the pipe diameter so it is easier to weld and you can grind the weld flush if that's your preference.

Sorry for the hijack Brad, the truck is looking pretty sweet. Cool

Got the sliders on. Debadged the passenger side and painted the mirror (good for at least 2mpg) If I could only find a nice honey comb grill to match the bottom bumper vent I would get rid of all the chrome. Weekend project is to start working on the bed rack for the RTT!

Thanks to JP's Indoor Iron Sales I was able to get this done on the weekend. I just need to drill some holes for the J hooks to hold it down and weld up a few more tabs for the axe/shovel/hi-lift and it's off to get powder coated.

I am planning on using a set of J bolts in the factory pockets. There are many holes to choose from. Not sure on the strength but it feels pretty solid and I torqued down fairly hard. It's that or drill through the rails (which I didn't want to do unless I have to) Any other suggestions?

That should work fine, looks clean and neat to.

I forgot to get a picture of it deployed. Works great with the vestibule underneath. With a a different tent it could go lower. Looks a litle goofy that high on the back, but works well.

After seeing my carpets this winter, I'm looking for a set of Weathertechs. Where did you order from? I hear they are better than the Husky liners.
