All sliders are made from 1 3/4 .120 wall HREW include 4 mounting legs, 1/4” plates for the frame, and 1/4” gussets...
So the Shrocks use thicker tubing and the main support along the bottom is quiet a bit thicker, 3/16th thick 2x2 square tubing.
Depends on what you want to use them for and if the extra $$ for the Shrocks is worth it to you.
Definitely good points. Just got done looking at your build thread - definitely impressive.
As far as what I'm going to use them for - probably nothing hard core at all. But If the Shrockworks sliders are the ones that I like best, then thats what I'll get. I'm not going to sacrifice for something inferior - within reason
Basically, I'm looking at Sliders because I like the look (don't like tube steps, nerf bars, or running boards). I like the protection they provide - even against door dings. And then of course the offroad protection, but again I probably won't find myself in the worst of situations where I high center on my rocker panel. And of course the lady would love a bit of a step into the truck.
