    I am considering the ALLPRO weld on, or the ShrockWorks bolt on sliders. I would rather have my sliders welded than bolted. I have done some research on here and everyone says the allpros flex alot. Is this true with the weld ons or are the complaints for the bolt ons?

    All sliders will flex to some degree. The degree of flex is largely due to the strength of the slider, how they were constructed, and how they attach to the frame.

    Will they hold up to the weight of the truck if I pick it up with a High Lift without going into the body? WHo makes the best?

    The bolt-on sliders can be used as steps, dent protection, and light off-roading, but are not designed to support the weight of the truck.



    thats from their site and it mentions bolt on not weld on :) phew had me worried

    I bought the Shrockworks bolt-ons for my 09. I bolted and welded and them on. They are pretty tough with the .134 DOM/square tubing combination. I have beat the piss out of them and they havent flexed any.
