    Any plans for bolt-on. If so I'd pick up a set in a minute. Good fab work by the way.

    So you're not planning on using them as sliders? Why not just a set of nerf bars then? If you get up on a rock with your sliders (bolt on) and the bolts fail.... then what.... That's what I've come to understand.

    I don't want to send this thread off on a tangent but from what I've seen and the research I've done bolt ons are as reliable as weld on's. All depends on the mounting hardware and how it mounts up.

    I honestly don't see how bolt-on could be "as reliable" as weld-on.

    Sure, they'll be good for a few years with a good design. But if you use them (meaning hitting rocks) the bolts will loosen and get gnarly with dirt, rocks, sand, etc hitting 'em.

    Bolt-on just seems like a bad idea for something essential as rock sliders. I mean, you need to be able to jack the entire vehicle up on them if need be...

    sick brother,,looking for bolt on's let us know when you get em. I like the strength of weld on's but don't need them that strong here.

    Lovin the DCLB model! Close to the design I went with for mine as well. Glad to see another option out there for the long bed guys! Had I seen these 6 months ago it would have been a tough choice between building mine or buying yours! Keep up the sick work.

    Thanks guys I wanted my kickouts to stand out from the rest. There is a little more work involved but it's worth the time to have a product that stands out from the rest.

    That's pretty cool but no L bracket mounting?

    I know man I'm swamped after the first 5 skids are built I'm setting a day aside to build nothing but sliders. I have cut the tubes for your sliders so it's ready to bend, Notch & weld so once your name is blue it's going to be red soon after.
