    I see on the site that there are Sliders for DC and AC Short Beds, are these completely bolt on(as in no drilling required) and will the work for my 2012 DCLB?

    If not what are the best options you guys see out there for my model and that are bolt-on only?

    I don't do any crawling, just mud and protection in the parking lot are my main focus

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Contact DWreck for no drill full bolt on sliders. As far as I know he is the only one doing no drill sliders.

    Avid has great reviews and offer a fully bolt on DCLB slider.

    The bolt-on slider/steps are an alternative to the step bars. They are designed more for the people that like the looks of sliders but don't need the super strength of weld ons. We understand that some people don't want to weld to their frame or drill a bunch of holes in it to get strength that they don't need. There is no drilling or welding required to install our bolt on version. They simply bolt into the factory running board mounts. Because of the mounting location, these sliders are not intended to support the weight of the truck but can be used as steps, dent protection, and light off-roading.

    Anyone against these?

    Shoot, I wish I'd seen these before buying my Westin step bars. Wonder if these provide more dent protection than my nerfs?

    Not just prevention, but proactiveness...If one of these fools hit the door the(or try to) they will end up damaging theirs...make people think twice!

    All Pro doesn't offer DCLB sliders, have to go with the D-Wrecks or Avids.

    If only Allpro would get on the ball, and realize Toyota does make a Longbed.... I like the AP design, but Nope, can't have them if they don't make them. Where is the equality?:( lol. BAMF makes some nice ones.

    If you ever plan on touching the ground with your sliders I wouldn't go with the avid's they will rip up your cab. But if you just want the look they should be fine.

    Thanks for the heads up, they are for looks and for idiots in parking lots. I may see some unplanned mud but no off-roading in the sense that most people think of with a truck.
