    Hi guys,

    I'm in the market for bolt-on sliders for my 'll DCLB. Not only do I want them for protection but I would like to also use them as steps. I don't like them to stick out too much, I prefer to have it a little more flush to the body: I've been looking into AVID, CBI, DEMELLO are there others that I'm missing. For those who have sliders, could you post pics of yours and why you chose them.....thanks a bunch

    Most sliders aren't very good steps. This is because they are supposed to be as high and tight to the body as possible. If you step on the slider first to get in, it's only another couple inches the rest of the way. Are you intending to use them offroad too? You could get a set custom made I suppose that sit a little lower. Downside would be less clearance offroad.

    No, I will not be doing any off-roading anytime soon. As you pointed out it would be hard to make them function as true steps. thanks
