Do you mean the vertical bar on the kick-up side?

If so, I think Brian just put it there to make it look Beefier, and isn't necessary.

I could be wrong though.

Thanks for the response ryanjboutin. Actually, I'm talking about the frame attachment points -- the L "brackets" connected to the horizontal legs. Three of these have triangular gussets (joining the bracket to the leg) for strength but the last one nearest to the leaf spring does not -- at least it looks that way to me in the pictures. In Barlowrs's build, however, it would appear that he does have some sort of gusset on that last bracket.

Robert (barlowrs) has the very first set of these ever made. They were the prototypes. You are correct, the difference between his and all current ones are the gussets. There just isn't any need (or very much room) for a gusset on the 4th leg (the very rear) and it's also not necessary to make the other gussets so long like his are.

He really wanted his gussets to be overkill, but after his I just decided to delete the rear gusset and make the others smaller because there's no need to heat the leg up with the welder and compromise any little bit of extra strength the leg may have by not seeing all that heat.

A lot of people are under the impression that gussets are going to make or break the strength of a slider but I disagree. My unprofessional opinion is you'd probably get the same result with or w/o them. People just like to see them. This statement will surely be controversial.

I also deleted that horizontal support leg that his kickup's have and the ones with kickup's in the 3rd pic don't have.

1st attchment is barlowrs (the first ever) and 2nd & 3rd pic is current.

IMO if it's a daily drive go narrow. When you say "steps" if your're referring to the kick outs I say get them Beefed makes the best looking ones and they do function when you are off-road.

It is a daily and the steps are pictured on the first post . They look like adjustable bolt ons unless I am wrong

IMO Sliders can be awkward to climb over when getting into the truck. For me the narrow have been the perfect balance between protection and and not too big of an obstacle to get around every time getting in and out of the truck.

If it were a dedicated trail truck who cares if you have to climb over the sliders to get in.

They are bolt on sliders but they are not adjustable. Sliders sit high up against the body any don't really function as a practical step.

Thanks

I was wondering whether the wider sliders would work as a step too

They have the outer legs out far toward the ends, a rear mount that protects the leaf spring mount on the frame, and a hardware kit that is much more than simple nuts and bolts. All coated grade 8 fine thread with special nut plates for inside the frame rail.

^ I've never noticed that step before. It wasn't an option when I got my sliders but it certainly does look like some kind of adjustable step. I guess I'm going to have to eat my words.

Leave it to Beefed to make a step practical step for these bad boys. I like how you can take it off when you decide to go off road.

About a year or so ago I came out with these clamp on steps...these work great for a few things...the first being most important.

1) The wife
Since they're sold individually or as a pair, you may hear her say..."Sure honey, go ahead and get those sliders, it'll be so nice to be able to get in that truck of yours easier and I can go back to wearing short skirts again"

2) Yourself
I have to admit, I use the one on my wife's Avalanche every time I get in and out, they're definitely handy.

Here's a link I made a while back.

Best bet is PM Brian direct and he will get back to you within a day. I just ordered mine last week, he said the current wait time is ~4 weeks.
