I give you the 2 x 4 mud shoes!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Pack of tie down straps
Miter saw or hand saw
Drill & 1/6 bit
Step 2: Measure for Your Shoes
Step 3: Measuring and Cutting
Measure your boards and make your cuts.
I received a new bench sander for Christmas, so the optional step would be to send that down but not necessary.
Step 4: Measuring to Make the Holes for Your Strap's
It's not rocket science and it doesn't need to be precise. We are talking mud here.
Step 5: Drilling and Chiseling
About 1 inch from the end of each side of the board drill all the way through four or five continuous holes in a row.
Then chisel out the material in between the holes to make a slit
And you have one completed shoe. Repeat to make a total of four shoes for your vehicle.
