    bolt ons can be as tough as weld ons for sure, as long as the mounting plates are well thought-out and executed.

    My Shrockworks sliders are bolted on.

    Given all my truck has been through, I've never bent or broken them.

    they do. I would not buy them if I had a mulligan. I would buy Beefed sliders. Shrockworks are strong as hell though.

    Nobody's ever going to convince me that the AllPro Bolt-ons aren't strong enough.

    I have slammed my shrockworks a couple times without even a dent. The powder-coat is top notch too.

    i would definitely recommend checking on that because I love my sliders from beefed and although I haven't tested em out to hard yet they will definitely hold up to severe abuse.

    Never heard of Slee before this thread, but just checked them out and they look awesome. Maybe not 900 plus dollars awesome though.

    I was looking at and talking to Avid about some sliders. Still kicking it around. Just trying to avoid doing to this truck what I did to my old one, adding so many things that the truck gets heavy and your mpgs sink.
