For you guys getting the BAMF sliders, I suggest you put a bead of silicone along where the gussets attach to the support bars. The seam is tight, but not tight enough for water to get in there, and we don't want premature rusting!!... Jerry...perhaps you could put a weld along those seams to prevent that??

We don't fully weld the gussets as everyone should. Fully welding both sides will put too much heat in that location. Causing heat stress 90% and unneeded deflection most of the time a support gusset does not need to be fully welded all around. That's the reason we don't fully weld gussets.

Thanks for the scoop Jerry!... I understand... Nothing a little silicone can't remedy...

I came very close to ordering these until I read a customer review on the product page of the retail site. The customer wrote, "The gussets and frame plates didnt come welded on but i think thats just for shipping purposes."

To those who've ordered these, do the gussets and frame plates arrive separate and detached from the sliders? Based on the way they protrude out from the sliders when welded together, I can understand the temptation to ship them unattached to save space and package size, but... As much as I love the look and engineering that go into these sliders, I'm hoping to find a product that arrives fully fabricated so I can simply deliver them and the truck to the shop for a quick and easy install.

Thanks!

For weld on sliders we leave them off to save you shipping the 80" sliders are so close to the over sized shipping fee adding the gussets adds $55 to the shipping charge. We have never shipped a weld on set with the frame plates attached as most people that weld on sliders do it themselves or have a buddy do it. So saving that money on shipping is more then the cost of the install when doing it yourself. The only time we weld the gussets on a weld on set of the sliders is when they are powder coated. the frame plates are still left off as they need a way to hang on the powder rack and with the plates on there is nowhere to hang them from.

I appreciate this

I actually appreciate this. It makes sense. If the customer plans to weld anyway, save them the shipping costs. Makes a lot of sense actually. Thanks so much for your quick reply sir.

I have many miles and dents on these, no rust in this area in the almost 3 years I have had them

a couple of questions for you.
1. do your 4runner sliders fit the 5th gens?
2. on many sliders for the 14+ a trim piece has to be removed to fit the sliders on the SR5's, do you know if this is the case with yours?
3. they are bolt on for the 4 runner, how many legs do you have on them, and do I have to drill any additional holes?
And still no sliders on the Tacoma...

We have only built a hand full of sliders for 5th Gens all have been weld on. So to build a bolt on set we would need a 5th Gen here for a few hours.
