    This keeping up with the Jones’ is getting expensive! I still have sliders, skids, and wheels/tires to get before a locker.

    If you guys bought sliders, would you rather a paper install sheet, a Youtube, both?
    I don’t see the complexity in installing sliders, but see a lot of upset feedback about no install instructions.

    YouTube for the millennials that can’t follow paper instructions. Paper instructions for ancient people like @Deathbysnusnu who don’t know what YouTube is. I guess the answer is both!

    I'm sure it would take you all of 30 mins to make a YouTube video and eliminate the future headache

    Yeah my thought on YouTube is it’s easy to film any spots that would be considered ‘trouble’.
    Plus if I can show folks that even on the gimp I can mount them solo without issue folks won’t be so upset trying to mount them. :rofl:
    Plus with my front tie in plates I’m a bit different than anyone else, so easy way to show my ‘order of operations’. Paper seems, outdated?, but I know folks who hate having to use computer/phones for everything.


    Hmmm. Maybe I can get the wife to install?....:D:D

    Sounds like a win win to me. You are doing the hard part in holding the camera.

    Plus when people like me struggle we will feel extra dumb :rofl:

    Well I figure she is way easier to look at than me. Plus it’s her truck. But really would be to show there’s no hidden secret to it. She'll struggle a tiny bit, (weigh half of her) but still.

    Yep in this age, you need both to try and limit the "how does this go" stuff.

    LED Light upgrade for Garage. Anyone buy LED fixtures from Amazon or go with buying from HD/ Lowes?

    Any recommendations?

    Not sure how small of projects he works on. But he has a ton of patents, and has done projects for NASA. Tiny LED bars that'll light up warehouses.

    Remember I am a cheap ass, so a custom lighting solution seems like not something I would do. :eek:
