Need welding shop recommendations for sliders in Charlotte

Anyone in Charlotte on here capable of welding on some sliders? I'm looking to pick up a set but I want to do my homework for install price.

Naturally I'd rather go with a taco guy from here that knows what he's doing, but second best would be any recommendations for local shops that can do the work. Also, if anyone has had them installed around here, what did it set you back?

I'm looking at getting the one's from 4x innovations. They look great, have great reviews, and the best pricing. Looks like they'll be a little more work on the install though since the "tubes" aren't pre-welded to the slider.

I'm all about getting hooked up, but I'll make it worth your while, you know, a little something for the effort.

I looked at ATO's vendor list and I didn't see any sliders listed.

What types would you be willing to install? I don't mind spending a few extra bucks on the sliders if it'll make the install less of a headache.

I sent Kevin a PM at ATO. I'll let you know what he has to say.

He can make you w/e you want or he can just weld on what you bring him

alove0750, would you mind letting me know what the slider install set you back, and if they were 4x innovations or another brand that required less work. You can PM me if you'd like. Thanks in advance.

The bumper we did some horse trading, a bow for a bumper and I got to be his guinea pig. The sliders were $350 and just under-belly was $125... I had him do the under-belly and sliders at the same time. It took him three days. I had the sliders powder-coated and I rattled canned the skid. the skid was made with a cross member so it could be un-bolted and I brought the sliders back and he had them welded up in no time. He could probably make them so they could be bolted on, but I like the thought of them being welded... I set mine down on them a couple times and they are stout! He is great to deal with and is going to be getting started on my rear bumper next monday-tuesday.
