Its not the welds. For those of you who "Swear by AllPro sliders" because they look cool. Best of luck to you when you need them. Save your money and wait in line for Shrockworks.
*ahem* if i may...shrockworks makes a FINE quality product...however if you have access to a good offroad shop or local fab guy who builds things for the offroad world...they can PROBABLY overbuild you something similar for a similar if not lower cost
i have no doubts in my mind that mine will hold up even if i flop the truck onto one of them and put the entire weight down onto it...and i paid less than $400 for them

ive personally seen a set of their HREW sliders bend and dent...on the same rock
I'm a firm believer that regardless of the fact that it may save you some money...if you are planning on doing ANY wheeling and you arent just using the sliders as a door ding stopper...you should have DOM tube...HREW just aint gonna hold up the abuse that DOM will
