    I've gotta say, I thought this would be easier than it currently is.

    - I love the way Slee's stuff looks, but I don't have the coin for it.
    - Demello's are less expensive, but from what I've seen (in person)... they don't take abuse well.
    - Shrockworks seem to be the best choice for out of the box bolt on, and they offer powdercoating.
    - Allpro is the cheapest bolt on that I've found so far, although I'm not thrilled about the mentioned modifications that you need to make on an access cab. And it ships raw metal. Which is easier to touch up once scraped.. but still. Also not a fan of the way the kickout looks.

    So help me out. I know a good 75% of people who vote will just vote brand preference and won't leave a comment, but please, if you do vote... tell me why. And leave notes on pros/cons that I've forgotten.

    Don't have them yet...but I've been impressed with what I have seen and heard of revenge fabrication...enuf so that I bought a set.

    Derek is a one guy shop and his prices are lower than AP and times seem decent...for what appears to be the same product (.120 Wall HREW 1.75inch)...and he does sleeve style bolt ons.

    Shipped raw is the way to go man-Powdercoat on sliders doesn't make sense unless you aren't going to let them touch any rocks. Get them raw to save a few bucks and lay down some rattle can in your choice of colors...IMHO

    Revenge sliders in the GB since they look quality and they're a great deal, or get a set custom built. Im currently building some just because I like doing my own stuff and its cheaper to buy just the materials.

    I like the way the DELUXE Stubbs look.
    I think ultimately fabbing my own is out of the question. The last time I tried to weld something was a complete disaster. The only shop I know in town that might do them cheap is almost an hour away from me.
    Ehhhh Some more reviews on the AllPro's would be nice. I'll probably call them and Shrock in the morning and check on time frames.

    And now that I've been given a stern talking to, I'll probably get them in bare steel and just Rustoleum® them.

    i dont disagree...im just saying that any particular slider on any given day...if you land your truck on that corner of the slider...it could easily bend up into the body of the truck

    heres a pic of mine just before they went on the truck

    notice where that last leg is...it was put there just for that reason

    Hey Tigerfan- I like how the supports between the two main tubes are angled back like that on your sliders. I think I'll try and do that with mine now. Thanks for the idea :)

    stubbs will get you the sliders in a few days. some may take like 8 weeks to get them to you, something to consider.

    I just bought twos set of HD-SKO.

    Not many do sliders for double cab long bed also.

    I called Shrockworks. Specifically mentioned that I recalled some people having to wait for their products for a longer than usual amount of time.
    At this time the access cab sliders are 5 weeks out. :(
    I'm still not loving the kickout's on the AllPro sliders, I understand what they're there for.. but having them is a bit visually jarring.

    Stubbs looks like the way to go.. just got to get them welded up.

    Yeah, the HD-SKO. I haven't wheeled the truck really, so they haven't be dropped on. But I have hi-lifted the truck by them and they didn't budge. I have mine tucked up pretty close to the body, if I were planning on wheeling the truck, I would have mounted them a little lower to allow for some movement.
