    Thanks DoorDing (ironic name). :) I saw you posted that before when I was reading but couldn't find an exact measurement so I asked. Appreciate any measurement you can get. I'm stock right now but plan on a 1.5 to 2" lift soon which should help against the cars too.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Derek. That's to the outer edge of the slider?

    Sorry to keep bugging you. Is that on the main tube or the kickout?

    I have installed several sets simply just by myself. No jack stands, no second person. It is fairly easy.

    Yes. I propped the first slider up on jack stands, but didn't bother with it for the second side. It wasn't necessary, but I used a floor jack to fully seat the slider against the frame and crossmember before final tightening. A jack can also help support the loose end after you get a bolt in on one end. Lift with the jack and pivot off of the bolt.

    The only difficulty I had was getting the nuts and bolts together inside the front, boxed frame section. A second set of hands wouldn't have helped me with that.

    Got them installed tonight. Need to go get a 7/8" end wrench as I couldn't get my socket inside the box frame and next to the fuel tank. Also, probably need to get a jack under them to get them fully seated.

    Overall I'm very impressed with this product!

    Sliders got broke in last night. Just a little rub on a rock.

    And they sounded like they were getting used today on the bottoms.

    They looked so nice just the other day too! ;)

    What did you paint them with? I need to pick up something so I'm ready to finish mine when they get here. I'll probably just do etching primer and some sort of black spray paint from a can.

    Personally, they'll be touched up so often that it wouldn't hurt to just do a primer/paint in one.

    I used rattle-can primer then rattle-can flat black. Probably just going to do touch-ups with flat black.
