    Be careful of the tire/gas can mount for the rear bumper, as if you're serious about offroading, you'll end up bending your frame due to the extra weight, so you'll need to either box the frame or reinforce it. There's a few places that sell the frame reinforcement.

    If you're just going to looks, its probably not quite as necessary, but might still be a good idea.

    As far as bolt on sliders go, there are a few options, but will require either drilling into the frame, or bending your cab above the frame. If you look at the frame, you'll see there really isn't much space at all to wrap a load bearing attachment to the frame. Most bolt ons seem to take the direction of drilling from what I've seen.
