    well if you ever decide to get serious those will do the job. better to have too much protection then not enough.

    Click my Sig Pic for my build thread. Too many to list here.
    They are built about an hour south of me. I have em. I like em, but havent tested them yet. Install was fairly easy if you have jack stands. They come with self tapping bolts for the frame, but I pitched them and went grade 8 instead. When you drill the pinch weld make sure that the hole is slightly higher then the center of the pinch weld. those use bolts. I over tightned one so I figure what the hell, grade 8 those too.

    You can see them on my truck below. and there is a few more pics in my build thread.

    what's the cleanability of your rocker panels like with these? can you still get behind them to wash your rig?

    Any chance you can snap a quick shot showing how they attach to the pinch weld?

    I can tomorrow sometime. Its too dark to get a decent shot right now.

    EDIT: Went and tried anyway. Pictures arent great but they might give you an idea.

    here is the basic layout. not sure if it will help or confuse.

    I guess, I dont know for sure though. I can say that they are incredibly stout. just not so confident in the mounting. I guess that is how it is dont on jeeps though.

    OP when you get yours installed, keep an eye on the powdercoat. I had rust starting to form in a few places after about 3 months. Minor stuff for the most part. I just hit it with some rustolem and I was good. But just a heads up.

    thanks for the heads up and the pictures. If i don't feel confident in the bolts I'm sure i could modify it to where it can be welded on that way it's not going anywhere for sure

    If these sliders had a better mounting design I would say they were pretty good. Being as they don't I will say be careful how far you trust them.
