    im looking into some rock sliders and would like some help

    i do light off roading and the other weekend my friend but a pretty gnarly dent in the bottom of his door from a rock, so that made me want to invest in some sliders

    what i need help with is,

    which are the cheapest/most effective/ easiest to install

    bolt on preferable but may consider welding

    bolt on for convinience since i dont do heavy offroad

    Thanks in advance

    I did the weld on 4xinnovations but if you're not handy in a shop you may want to consider something else. Mine didn't seem to go on without some custom modifications.

    700 for slideres seems a little expensive??:confused:

    Are there any advantages? I honestly wouldn pay above 500 before shipping for some metal

    Do not pay more than $500 shipped for sliders. Especially when there are so many great ones out there, for some much less money.

    actually the price is not that bad. I ordered a set a few weeks ago and i paid $479. these sliders come powder coated. most the ones you see here in TW ships bare metal. I didn't pay any shipping cost since i'm local, i will pick them up. It does take about 8 weeks from beginning to end, but you are right they are very solid and the powder coat looks awesome. can't wait to pick mine up.

    Oh I love mine. They are more expensive then others I have seen but are solid. I wouldn't want another slider. My dad is a retired welder and he said these Shrockworks are well made.

    well thats why im on here asking first... but i am not new to the offroading world, just tacomas...

    still anything over 500 seems like im being raped for money, all the tubes and bars and bending would only cost about $60 then the rest is labor an making it the right way... most deffinantly not 600 dollars of labor

    EDIT:
    ohhhhhh i see what your saying disregard this post :D:p

    Sliders are definitely the way to go. My sliders saved me from a lot of damage this weekend when we inadvertently ended up on a very technical trail. I'm running bolt on Demello sliders and they're awesome. After sliding my truck via sliders across a giant boulder, I finally answered whether they can hold the weight of the truck.

    Demello makes great equipment!
