Florida or not you do not have sliders on your truck the cab is not designed to support the truck not sure why you think you have a lift point on your cab you don't. The first thing you hit with those they are going to cave in 1" pipe will never hold up as sliders even if they were welded to the frame.

If you wanted them for looks/a step there are cheaper ways/options. I wouldn't trust those at all.

Not only will they not stop damage they will multiply it. All tube steps are damage multipliers like most "brush guards".

If he really did tie in his steps to his body and frame that should be real interesting once offroad since the frame and body are not rigid mounted and can flex independently up to an inch.
