Best Weld-on sliders?

Looking for input on the best weld-on sliders. I've heard great things about shrockworks, but they take forever to ship and are bolt-on. All-pro's apparently bend when you actually use them.

If I'm looking for some solid weld-on sliders, what's my best bet?

Also, sometimes I'm able to order weld-on's powdercoated... How does that work, doesn't the welding ruin the powdercoat?

I'm sure there is more than one person who will recommend Demello's sliders.

I had a set of Demello Rock Crusher square tube sliders on my 96 tacoma. They were BOMBPROOF.

Granted...How you get them welded to your frame can make a big difference in how they perform (and how the frame can withstand it).

I had "L" brackets welded to the ends of the rock sliders (with gussets). The L brackets were placed up againest the frame and stitch welded to the frame.

when powder coating or painting the person/people doing it should/will usually leave an inch or two bare at the welding point to get a clean weld. So, the paint doesnt ruin the welding. As far as which ones to go with, I just finished a similar search as yours. I ended up getting some from 4xInnovations. A member on here (FIRE931) has them and has reported excellent results after wheeling his truck pretty hard (as seen in his pics). They are relatively cheap compared to others on the market and, as mentioned, performance is good as well. Im actually getting mine today. Ill be painting them this week, and hopefully get them welded on this weekend. Ill try to keep you in mind and post pictures/results as the process goes on so that you have an option.

I dont know if your set on getting them powder coated but the process usually runs about $100-$140 depending on the seller. IMO, and as others have suggested, using some Rustoleum is much easier and cheaper. When u bang up powder coating your gonna have a tough time getting them touched up as theyre welded on to your truck. You may be able to do Rustoleum with the powder coat but Im not sure the textures/colors will match.

Just something to think about.

yup yup.. go with 4xinnovations! i'm running the DOM version with the kickout.. these things have taken beating after beating with no complaints... not to mention they have a great price on them as well! once you get them go ahead and paint everything but the mounting bracket... after you get them welded on then finish up the painting! i rattle can mine several times a year to cover trail damage and whatnot. i just cut up acouple trash bags, tape them to the side of the truck and go at it. and wa la.. brand new sliders again..

Cool beans. Has anyone had them linex'd? I'm thinking black linex would hold up better than paint, and provide a bit better grip to use them as a step bar in addition to a slider. Yes/no? Will the liner just scratch off at the first rock it sees?

4xInnovations seems like the way to go, now I just have to figure out what to do for my front.

Use Herculiner for the tops & sides....and rattle can for the underside (where the rocks will bite).

That's what I did....

yea maybe putting something on the top would be ok for added traction when wet.. but the bottom is just gonna get scraped right off with the first rock.... i just rattle can all of mine, although i never step on mine either so it dosnt make much difference to me.

Well, I don't need to step on them, but girls could use them, especially if I go up in tire size in the future. :P Stubbs welding, I'll keep that in mind.

X3 - Demello for the win.

I have a set of double tube Demello's, my second set. I have Hi-Lifted them, dropped them on rocks, pivoted off them and basically abused them in ways that I can't describe on a friendly forum... I have barely scratched the powdercoat. No way of knowing how much damage they have save me from, but it's considerable.

No reservations.

Look into stubbs welding, they make a solid slider, very similar to shrockworks except you will have them at your door in a week
All pro sliders are all HREW afaik (or at least their most common sliders)

DOM > HREW.

I'm running Shrockworks and they're extremely solid. Well worth the money, but possibly not the lead-time depending on when you expect to go 'wheeling.

i don't have photo evidence, just what I've read about them in other posts on this forum. Never seen them in real life, I have no idea, that's why I say that's what I heard.

Gonna throw a X4 for the Demellos. I too, have heard of the All Pro sliders bending. To add, I belive All Pro has 3 mount points as opposed to 4...??

well all i can say is i love my sliders.. they have 4 mounting legs, a nice kickout that i love to pivot off of... and are hella tough.. i'll take my $265 DOM sliders with a kickout over higher priced HREW kickout or not... and even if DOM is overkill for most people.. if you can get overkill for a better price... why not???

note... i'm not arguing with anything anyone says.. just pointing out the facts...
