    keyboard fabrication - At least I learned a new phrase out of this kerfuffle.

    Time to bolt my shitty, four leggers on.

    Shauncho, Dwreck can build just about anything you want. He just replied to this thread and you can PM him for pricing. I highly recommend FF. They went on perfectly, only Issue I ran into was getting was getting my big hands inside the frame near the front on both sides to place the nuts on the bolts. I can take some more pics of the mounting points if you want them.

    I should of stated IMO paying more then $400 is crazy and providing how I got to that price would of helped us all so I apologize.

    My price point is $400 because I shopped around, waited, and bought during a GB. I also negotiated my pricing due to volume of product bought. Whenever possible I will wait for months just to find a good price and perfect deal. Even when a great deal comes along in a GB I try to get the local guys to go in at the same so we can group together and save on shipping. I purchased a front bumper via GB from the same vendor I purchased my sliders from (also during a GB). Because of this I also received a good percentage of the total off. I should of eluded to all that in my statement.

    If my memory serves me right I paid a little over $1k for a plate front bumper and sliders without shipping but that was years ago so I will check my invoices tonight for a totally accurate price.



    thanks for being informative and helping out in this thread :rolleyes:

    Talk about backpedaling. You made some strong claims about durability and got pissy when asked to back them up. There were ways to make your point without any of that; you went another way. Now you give us the above in an attempt to justify your opinion on pricing? Maybe that makes sense to someone else, but not me.
    Says the guy that called a vendor was an asshole for responding after you attacked their livelihood.

    In this thread, I've respectfully asked for you to back up your claims, and I quoted the phrase, "keyboard fabrication", from one of Brian's unedited responses to you. I do apologize for being inaccurate in using your description of the design of my sliders. I should've said "piss poor, four leggers" not "shitty, four leggers".

    I don't know why you have a problem with any responses you've earned here.

    Shauncho, as promised.

    As you can see they mounted directly to holes already in the frame and even have cutouts for the bolt heads that are already in the frame.

    I could not ask for a better fit, thanks Dwreck :)

    I just learned that today.

    The worst part was the drilling, as I broke 3 bits until I started using a small pilot, then a medium and finally a 3/8.

    I use factory holes in the frame. No drilling required.

    Got to agree with most the other members.

    I went with All Pro bolt on sliders and they were a PITA to install.

    I know this is a little off subject but i'll be having my Sliders welded on on Monday or Tuesday of next week and I thought I'd ask you guys what you've payed to have them welded on by a good shop? I can do some light welding but I'm not taking any chances here and getting a professional do it. Some places will just rip you off because they can. Help me out here. Thanks
