No-Drill Rock Slider Options

I am looking for some rock sliders for my 09 Access Cab. I really like the Shrockworks sliders, but I would prefer something that doesn't require drilling the frame. Does anyone know of a no-drill option for rock sliders/rock rails? I want small round tubing like the Shrockworks design.

Edit: I'm looking for bolt-on sliders, but something that bolts to existing holes.

I think he's looking for weld-on sliders...

Probably pretty much all of them could be welded on whether they're bolt on or not...

All Pros can be bolted or welded (mine are welded
Shrockworks (bullet proff but LONG wait)
Demello

to name a few...

Actually, I guess I should have clarified...I want bolt on sliders, but ones that bolt up to existing holes. I don't want to drill or weld.

Demello's Bolt-ons

Mine are being built this week! I bought the Bolt-ons but requested semi gloss powder coat black instead of wrinkle finish as pictured. Jason goes out of his way to use factory frame holes plus he clearences the gussets for existing rivets so you don't have to grind them down. It is recommended that you drill the holes for the bottom mounting bolts for maximum strength.

X2. if you aren't going to bash on em' you'll probably be ok w/o the bottom bolts...they are the ones that require drilling. frankly man, just get the Shrocks or Demellos and drill the six holes...it don't hurt that bad after the first one i've not seen any that don't require ANY drilling.

I'm drilling the extra holes without question. I have some brand new titanium bits ready for the task. Thanks because that reminds me that I need to borrow the electric drill for next week. Cordless drills and dull bits are not up for the task for frame drilling.

i drilled mine w/a Milwaukee 18v cordless...no problem. good bits, slow speed and cutting oil. a carlift helps...don't forget to sheild your eyes.

I don't have an 18V (wish) but I'm thinking the cutting oil will ease the pain. Good idea. Thanks!

Have a look at Avid, they have sliders that bolt onto the factory running board mounting holes. They do make a point of explaining that the bolt on's are not intended to support the weight of the truck. They have weld on sliders too.

I will be working on a way to use u-bolts and plates to clamp them on to the frame. I'm going to do all the fab work myself. I'll post some drawings when I figure it out.
Don't hold your breath. Prodjects take a backseat to my job and sidejobs.
