    Im having some custom sliders made at a local welding shop and they had one question that I can't find the answer to. What is the distance between the slider itself and the rocker panel where the square tubing normal is? Somewhere in the 1/2" to 1" range?
    If anybody has any measurements for the difference in the slider and the lockout that would be good too.

    I've been giving the topic some thought myself....getting ready to weld together a bolt on set. I'd say tucked in as close as possible while maintaining space for deflection. Assuming 3/8" - 1/2" would be suffice... A big determining factor may be the engineering/design of the sliders.

    I'm combining 4x innovation sliders (DOM with round main tube) + all pro bolt on bracket (square legs and gussets). I would say that this combo should be equivalent or similar to the Apex sliders.

    Ctsnow13 - do you have a model or sketch of the sliders you are getting made?

    Hopefully someone with some experience can chime in.
