So since Jerry from BAMF is such a busy guy I decided to help him out and make a how to install on his bolt-on rock sliders. This write up is for the ACCESS CAB LONG BED AND DOUBLE CAB SHORTBED.
I will start with the easy slider side (passanger side)
3/4 socket wrench
5 gallon bucket (my method) or jack stands to hold up the sliders so I could get the bolts in the frame holes
Good drill that accepts 1/2 bits (I used a Dewalt cordless and make sure you have a few batteries charged)
Drill bits 1/4" - 5/16th - 3/8th - 7/16th - 1/2" (Go up in size from small to large) I USED PILOT POINTS AND IT MADE THE DRILLING SO MUCH EASIER
A FLOOR JACK (it is a must in order to make it easier to work under the truck )
GLOVES to protect from HOT METAL as you are drilling
First you take the sliders and get them in place to bolt on the truck. HERE ARE A FEW PICS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE
Second, get the side bolts in and hand tight.
The bolts should look like this when in place. (the middle and back are the same)
This is the middle bolt on the DRIVER side (see the brake lines) and also the bolt through the drilled hole in the bottom of them frame
This is the REAR leg bolt also on the DRIVER side (brakelines)
NOTICE THE SQUARE "WASHER" or "SPACER" on the nut or bolt side which ever you prefer to put inside the frame nut or bolt that spacer goes inside the frame over the frame hole or the head of the bolt or the nut will just fall right through the hole in the frame.
This is where the 2 bolts are inside the boxed part of the frame
To get your hand under the brake lines unbolt this it gives you the inch or 2 needed to get your hand up there without tearing apart your hand
This is the FRONT PASSENGER side where the 2 bolts are up inside the frame
At this point, use the floor jack to lift the sliders up from the middle bottom bolt bracket that is contacting the frame so the bottom part of the bolting bracket is flush with the frame on all 3 legs of the slider. It is also good to have a helping hand putting the side bolts in. If you have someone there they only need to slightly lift the slider up so the brackets are now totally flush with the frame and you can tighten the bolts down.
You are now ready to drill the holes into the frame.
Grab your drill and get to work LET THE DRILL DO MOST OF THE WORK ONLY APPLY PRESSURE WHEN NECESSARY THE HARDEST HOLE TO DRILL IS GONT TO BE THE REAR DRIVER HOLE BECAUSE OF AN EXTRA THICK FRAME GUSSET
I FOUND IT EASIER TO DRILL WITH THE SLIDERS BOLTED ON AND TIGHTENED SO THAT THERE WAS NO HOLE THAT WAS OFF CENTERED
OH HEY WELCOME BACK FROM YOUR 2-6 HOUR DRILLING SESSION 4 LETTER WORDS AND A FEW BEERS. YOU ARE NOW READY TO PUT THOSE LAST BOLTS IN AND FORGET ABOUT THIS.
ONE MORE THING YOU WILL FIND IS THAT THE WASHERS FOR THE BOLTS ON THE FRONT LEG ON THE BOTTOM DO NOT FIT INSIDE THE FRAME WHERE THE BOLT IS DUE TO WELDS. ALSO, DEPENDING ON THE PLACEMENT OF YOUR HOLE IT MAY FIT ON ONe SIDE AND NOT THE OTHER
WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED HAND TIGHTENING THE BOTTOM BOLTS USE AN AIRGUN IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO ONE AND TIGHTEN THE BOLTS DOWN AS MUCH AS YOU CAN TO PREVENT THE BOLTS FROM FALLING OUT AND TO MAKE THE HOLD ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FRAME THAT MUCH TIGHTER
THANK YOU JERRY FOR MAKING A GREAT PRODUCT AND KEEP MAKING THEM THEY ARE AWESOME
