Not right now. I want one that has a kick out, one like mreimann's sliders.

Matt made his own sliders, when he has the time (and a tube bender), I will ask him to make me some sliders.

I know this thread is probably dead, but I just installed the kit today. Took about 6 hours because my dad and I ran into some trouble with rotating the last front shock/strut 120 degrees. Also got a UWS low prof. box in the back last week. I'll post pictures tomorrow if anyone is interested.

And the sliders definitely help getting into the truck now!

Sweet sliders, I've been looking for some for my regular cab 4wd now I know where to look. I really like your bench seat cover too, is that a toyota or aftermarket cover?

These look surprisingly nice. How much were they? Might have to pick them up if I ever lift as a step

Not trying to steal the thread, but have the same truck, I mounted unconventionally but they work great for me.

comiesutra and Rconectn thanks
cyclewvu they are coverking bench seat covers i got them for about 180 online I forgot exactly where, but any reputable place will do (they fit great on the bench seat)
schiz94 i actually fforgot how much but if you go on avidoffroad.com or email brandon he will tell you!
Reepur that's a kick ass truck very nice

Here's three pictures I took today. Like I said, it took my dad and I about 6 hours to install it yesterday (ran into probs with the last front shock rotating it 120 degrees). If you have the tools, it's definitely worth doing by yourself imo because you'll save a bunch of money, have some fun, and probably learn something. Oh, I also replaced the back shocks with Fat Bob's shocks for the lift. Went out on a run before sunset and I took some pictures afterwards. I'll post more pictures of close ups tomorrow - I just don't want to be a whore about it all. Hope you enjoy.

The lift and 235's give my 4x2 4 banger a totally different ride. Aside from being higher off the ground, it has a heavier feel to it, and a lot less flimsy than what it felt like stock. Oh, and as for my steelies (woop woop!) hopefully in a few years I'll switch those out when it's time to get new tires. Ideally 16 inch rims with 31's. But hey, maybe I'll find a nice set of 16's for a reasonable price, and if so I'll switch the tires on them. But I guess that's for a different thread. KIDDING. Just kidding @_@

Edit: 2nd picture - good old toyota seat belts - it got stuck in the door

What change!!! Totally different look, awesome!!

I have the readylift kit sitting in the closet. I won't put it on my truck until the original tires wear down; that way I will buy the rims and tires and have a nice surprise once the lift goes on. Now I know how my truck will look like, fantastic! Thanks for the pics aggiepack!

There's nothing wrong with having pride in your truck. It looks great and the next mod I am going to do is a lift. Take some more pics and post them.

ThisGuy - you'll love your new AVID stuff! Are you going to have it powder coated or do a rattle can job?

thanks comiesutra. Here are 3 picture that I think are important for installing the lift. Err, not game changing pictures, but very useful heads up info.

you're exactly right there are two matching plastic pins where you would put any other steps on underneath where you can't really see from the picture I took. But trust me they are there

For those of you who install the kit yourselves I hope the following two pieces of advice help you out (or at least prevent you from dropping too many F-bombs) - the first piece of info is regarding the AAL and the other is about rotating the front shocks 120 degrees.

AAL: When you removed and swap out the stock U bolts with the longer ones in the kit, you're also going to have to swap out the middle screw with another one that uses a different sized nut. The problem is, this new nut doesn't fit in the center hole where the two U bolts go into. Here is a picture comparison

The metal piece that is held by the two u bolts/holds the leaves


Showing the new nut doesn't fit in the hole


Comparison of the new one (left) and the old one (right)


All you need to do is sand this down and you're good to go

Rotating the front Shocks 120 degrees: After you bolt on the front spaces, you have to rotate the shock 120 degrees in order for it to fit correctly back in place. I didn't have the correct tool to compress the shock, so I went over to wheel works to see if they had one I could use. Instead of riping me off, they actually told me how to do it by myself.

After bolting on the new spacer, bolt the shock back in place. Use a metal bar that will fit in the hole of the shock and torque it 120 degrees. I used some lubricant to make it a bit easier, and don't worry about breaking or damaging the shock. Just make sure while you are twisting limit how far you're cranking the shock outwards (if that makes sense)

The first shock literally look less than a minute to rotate. The second one, however, took over 10 minutes (the sucker was determined not to budge). So if you run into the problem of your shock not moving, don't worry, just keep applying some lubricant and keep on trying. In order to get more leverage, I put the short metal bar inside of another larger metal bar. This is what did the trick for that last shock. Eventually it will move.

Hope this informations is helpful. I'll honestly post some more pictures tomorrow - heading back up to college today. Happy New years TW!
