    OK, so I mounted my AllPro Sliders. I really like the design, style and workmanship on the AllPro Sliders. They weigh a ton though and it was physically demanding installing them, but it forced me to work smart.

    They hug the truck nicely and match the other ornamental iron. I really like the contours. This truck is a Work In Progress.

    I used jackstands and a floorjack to position them for mounting. It's impossible to position them wrong. Did I say good design?

    Everyone's got a little MacGyver in them. What you're seeing is my inverted, foot-controlled drill press. It worked great.

    You're going to need one of these (angle drill). I got mine at Harbor Freight. Based on the quality (and lack thereof), you might want to buy two just to make sure you get the job done. Save the Pacifico's until you're on the home stretch. You'll want them.

    Once I was done, I removed them and sent them to the powdercoater (I know everyone says to rattlecan them). AllPro was willing to Powdercoat them, but I wanted them to match my bumpers.
