    Installed my FF sliders today. First off, these things are heavy duty. A lot of time and consideration went into designing these things. The frame plates have holes drilled for mounting hardware as well as for oem frame rivets to fit through. Gussets are large and plenty strong to prevent any kind of flexing. FF sliders use 6 bolts on each side as well as utilizing the crossmember support bolt. All the necessary hardware was including which made installation a breeze. I painted them w/ Rustoleum self etching primer and then Rustoleum flat black. Great job Famous Fabrication. My truck thanks you for saving it's body panels.:D

    did you notice the sliders flexing at all with the HiLift? I have a set of FF sliders on my truck and was just curious. Looks good!

    I recently put on my FamousFab slides & haven't really had the chance to put them to work I have let them get a little rock rash, nothing a can of touchup can't do, solid, well built, nice big gussett where it should be, & they look great !! The angle & tuck up to the rocker panels is also well thought out, alot of sliders stick out too far or the angle is awkward making it a pain in the ass, these don't & provide alot of protection, almost tire to tire.... Well done Derek !!...:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:


    I've got some pics

    It's a damned nice looking set for sure ...

    Hardware was top notch....


    Everything seem to line up fairly well & bolts found homes in the meaty part of the frame...
