PROBLEM SOLVING HOT ROD CHASSIS PARTS FOR OVER 40 YEARS.
A universal step notch kit that's really easy to assemble and install. The pieces fit together using alignment tabs to make clamping and welding on your bench a breeze. Available in two widths: 2-5/8" and 3-3/8".
Typically used in the mini truck market to drop the frame past the rear axle. 2 widths available: 2-5/8″ and 3-3/8″ wide outside. 6-1/2″ from the top of the original frame to the top of the notch. Made from 3/16″ pickled and oiled mild steel. Sold in pairs.
The notch depth will vary, depending on how tall the frame rails are, and what sweep the original frame rails have. The S10 we used for our installation article, for instance, has 4″ of axle clearance with 18″ wheels when the frame is laying on the ground.On the market since 2010.
Ready-to-weld or welded. Save some money buying the ready to weld kit, or save some time buying the welded kit. You’ll probably spend less than an hour welding it yourself.Alignment tabs. No guesswork when it comes to squaring it up. Easy to clamp while you’re tacking it together. The original two piece step notch. Inner boxing plates are also included.Weld it off the frame. The majority of the welding is done on your bench, where you can position the piece for the best weld. When you’re done welding the notch, just set it on the frame rail and weld it in place.Sits on outside top corner of frame rail. If you choose to grind the welds, you’ll have a smooth transition from the notch to your frame rails.Integral inner frame rail boxing plates. The inner plates weld to both the upper and lower flange of a C channel frame rail for strength.

Every customer is different. You’re different from the next customer. That’s why they’re called 'custom'ers. There is no formula, no equation that will work with all of you. It takes a different approach to everyone to determine how best to serve anyone. Some people need videos, some people need descriptions. Some people need us to weld it together. Our approach has been, and will always be, to serve each of you where you are and to treat you the same way we would like to be treated. We officially opened the doors to Welder Series in 2005. That doesn’t sound like very long, because the product line has been percolating for over 40. Paul Horton began developing and building many of the parts we still manufacture when I wasn’t yet a twinkle in Dorothy’s eye. Thanks very much for your business and support over the years.

Note DW and Paul Horton at Welder Series absolutely rock and were quick, prompt, by far the best communication I’ve had with an online vendor in a LONG LONG TIME… (Sorry but their response time was bar none awesome). Very rarely do you find the level of dedication to a customer, communication, and a rewarding experience for both the buyer and supplier. I bought a pedal assembly a bit ago, and that experience automatically ensured that I will source Welder Series before I search for another vendor. Paul and DW have it together and will make a solution to your problem… and probably at the best price around to boot.
I have purchased a few of the products that Welder Series offers and been pleased each time. The products are as advertised and they ship in a timely manner.
I am also impressed with their customer service. I asked them if they had a brake pedal kit (mount, pivot, pedal, bushings, etc) for a right hand drive application. They did not have a kit per se but were able to put together pieces from their catalog to make one I could modify the Master Cylinder mount to make it face the other way (I had to cut the top off and weld it back on facing the other way, cheaper than ordering a one off part, and I don’t have a way to bend metal that thick, everything else fit up as intended). It worked as they described.
I just finished installing a Welder Series rear sway bar kit over the weekend. My all-steel ’35 sedan handled in the traditional “scrape off the running boards” way… even with a front sway bar. The kit went together nicely, everything fit perfectly and now the car goes around a corner 100% better… no more extreme lean. DW was a huge help in putting together a little bit different kit for me since I am using a tubular rear crossmember and also made some suggestions that really helped in the fabrication. You can depend on these guys… they are “for real” hot rod guys that offer really cool products. I’ll post a picture or two when I get the chance to put the car on a hoist for a better photo op. Thanks DW & crew.
