No, not that soon man. I'm going on a trip for the next week and a half and when I drop the bumper off to you I'll actually be going from one part of my trip on to the next part(heading up to Dunefest in Winchester Bay OR). On top of that I still have some other orders for bumpers I need to fill first also, so I'm pretty busy at the moment. Sorry.
Also, did you get my last PM regarding payment on the bumper?

Hey all, I've got a set of these installed and I thought I would give you guys a review to read over.

I spent a significant time last year trying to decide who I should buy sliders from. I knew next to nothing of offroading at the time, other than I had gone once and scared myself enough to know that if I ever went back - I needed a bit more than luck.

I considered a lot of the major brands, and just so happened to get a chance to see Eric's truck in person before making the decision.

Appearance

The first thing you notice about the Relentless sliders is the diameter of the tubing. It's larger than most other sliders, which gives them a beefy look. I've seen other other sliders, and they look like toothpicks in comparison to this man-size metal.
The hybrid tubing design is also very appealing. it fits well with the look of the truck, and adds a professional look to the finish of the product. The tubing stretches to each end between the tires, and the square tubing is tapered at each end, which again shows that Eric and Tim pay attention to the form of their products (sorry I don't have a good pic of it right now).

On my sliders, the round tubing has a slight upward tilt, rather than coming straight out. I talked to some other companies, and they said this couldn't be done because the door would smack the slider. Well, I have it, looks great, and I've had zero issues.

I painted mine with a Krylon gloss, which gave a nice shine, but I couldn't leave them that way for long!





Strength


here's a shot of the in-progress build. I'm no welder, but in comparison to other products I've seen, these are very well made.




You've already seen Eric and the hi-lift, but how does it work on the trails?

GREAT.

Once mine were mounted, Eric and I headed straight to the trails that had scared me so bad before. With the sliders, my level of confidence was huge, and I was able to navigate the trails, even if the sliders never had to come in contact with anything.




We found one spot in particular that was narrow with a rock ledge. I had gotten through before the first time because it was dry, and I remember it being very slow going as I was guided through with a spotter. This time, it was raining and there's no way other than sliding right into it.
I chose a path, used the sliders to pivot off one of the boulders, and came through like a champ - no spotter needed, obstacle cleared in half the time, no damage except a scuffed slider - which was the exact purpose I got them for. As I told Eric, the sliders paid for themselves in under 48 hours.

I've since gone on tougher trails, even going through a trail in Browns camp where my entire left side balanced on the slider for several feet. At the end of the day, simply scrub up the slider and repaint. So long, body shops!

Usefulness

Once mounted, the sliders become the widest part of the body, easily protecting against trees, rocks, or other obstacles that would otherwise require spotting. Note, though, that they are not so wide as to become a hindrance on the narrow trails!

If you have a lift, these take the place of a tube step. It helps me feel satisfied as well knowing they are heavy duty steel, so they will last.

I like parking in parking lots now, too. When an idiot lets their door fly open, it's their vehicle that gets smashed and I get to walk away

Value

The price Eric has posted here is the same he quoted me. I'm really surprised his rate didn't go up - most of the products I've compared are usually $100 more, and many of them look inferior to the Relentless build quality.



Here's a few of the shots I've got of mine.

I'm impressed with the look of your work and I'm interested in a set for my DCLB. I would like the hybrid units with a kick out but also interested in what the cost would be for a DOM set. I have been researching sliders for a few weeks now and I am ready to get some on my truck before I end up with dented rockers... Any idea what shipping to WV would be?

Thanks man! I'll price DOM when I get back from my vacation in a week and get back to you with a price for hybrids in DOM. Do you want on the list for a set regardless, or only depending on the price of a DOM set?

I am more than likely in! Access cab w/kick-out!




Unless you plan on doing more in the future...


I don't plan on actually using sliders until this winter , but if this is a one-time thing I am in...



Awesome pricing Eric.

I would like to get on the list... I need sliders. Lift is going on this week, BudBuilt skids already on... Let me know the cost of DOM and shipping to WV and then I will decide if I go with those or the hrew set...

Hope you had good vacation, the fishing here is West Virginia was great this weekend.
