    My wife is short, and needs to step on the Westin nerf bars to get in the truck. Since this is my first suspension lift I am not sure my bottle jack will actually work in a flat tire situation.

    What are my options? I have thought about sliders and a hi-lift, but it seems like ever brand of rock sliders I see needs to be welded on. Are there any bolt on options?

    The next problem would be....where do I store the hi-lift? I have thought about the bed, but I don't want it to get stolen or become rusty from the weather.

    Any ideas?

    Avid makes bolt-on sliders. I know other companies do, as well.

    The ones I have "bolt" on but it was weak so I had a couple tack welds put on it. Since I lifted the truck they are totally friggin useless for anything except getting my pants dirty. I'm going to cut them off.

    Trail gear makes some that are capable of being bolted on.

    Really any sliders that have gusset plates can be bolted on with some drilling.
