    Will you tell me how these bolt to the frame? I know you recommend welding these, but will they be secure with just bolts? I will weld them eventually, but not until my truck isn't my daily driver.

    Here are my questions:
    Will they be secure with just bolts? Strong enough to be used as a step?
    Is there any drilling required or do they use existing holes?
    Is hardware included with the purchase?
    Do you offer a discount for TW members?

    Thanks in advance for your help. Oh and this is for a 1st gen ext cab.

    Sorry, my bad. I did not realize that it's about AP. I cleaned up the mess... Now, I'm interested on the answer from AP cuz I'm looking for bolt-on slider as well. I just haven't got a chance to ask AP.


    Allpro,

    Do you offer sliders for DC LB? And bolt on in particular.


    Thanks.

    i was going to bolt mine on originally, but WAY too many holes to drill into the frame to mount them. welding is much easier, will hold up, and can be removed to look like nothing was ever there

    Sorry for the delay in answering your questions.

    Our rock guards can be secured with the included hardware, but it does require drilling of your frame. Whether bolted on or welded on, they are definately strong enough to be used as a step, but if you plan on using your truck in situations where the full weight of the truck is on the rock guard, we recommend welding the on, which is a much easier installation anyway.

    Alot of people ask us for forum discounts, but the truth is that 95% of our customer belong to one forum or another, so it isn't feasible to offer a "forum" discount, but we do post forum specific specials and group buys.

    (But look for a price reduction on all of our Tacoma rock guards soon! ;))

    They will be cosmetically secure (like steps) via the bolts.

    I broke several bolts as I bolted mine on before taking them to be welded. I would recommend buying higher quality hardware before attempting to bolt them up.
