    I hate the first issue was something I didn't cause. It's only paint transfer but it pisses me off. And I really wish someone made aluminum sliders. They really can be just as durable if you went thick enough wall on the tube

    I think Mobtown was considering it......sliders really aren't that bad though. The weight is at least centralized

    Not currently. Aluminum sliders can't take a hit. If you're only wanting aluminum for weight savings/mpgs steel ones won't affect it noticeably, according to mobtown and a few other forum users.

    Yeah I'm aware. I used to work in the steel industry. Aluminum is just a bit softer, but it could hold up to some minimum drops and skids. It wouldn't hold a 4 foot drop, but I'm not doing any of that. Mobtowns design with the full gusset wrap around would work with aluminum. At that point its just cost and work involved. From what I see it's just people go with steel for cost efficiency and durability

    Wait for labor day or black friday....order which you want. Prepare to wait 3 to 4 months.
    Or there are some slider-similar options....available quicker...
