    If you broaden your search, you could go for bolt on and do it yourself.

    I went with Stubbs HD-SKO's. The design rocks and if you are paying for someone to weld them his come with a gussets and support bars already setup. Just prep and weld to the frame. Some others leave all that to the consumer which can add to the welding time. Consider that aspect when looking at total cost.

    I recently installed the AllPros. I powder coated mine, but you can pick them up directly from their shop and install them yourself and both of these will save you a lot.

    I ran Subb's SKO-HD's as well and absolutely loved them. Unfortunately I just had to remove them. Mine came with gusset plates as well, here they are right from Richard....

    Further to Spitfire's post, here is the gussets of which he speaks and how they mount to the frame....

    I guess what we both meant were gusset plates, I think that was pretty evident.

    Relentless and Demello both make excellent products and I would be happy to have either on my truck. The Stubb's are of excellent quality as well and are very up to par.

    I've seen Relentless Sliders in person and those things are BEEFY THICK compare to my 4xInnovation sliders!!! But if you want something local then you have lots of options. Beefed..demello..all pro..and i'm sure there are other vendors on here that are local in the socal region. Just can't think of their name right now.

    Those are scab plates. gussets would be angles between the legs and the scabs.

    How did you remove them? Did you have to cut the legs and grind the frame down?

    Understood, my mistake then. As jdmcq said the term is "scab plates"?

    The legs were cut and plates were left on the frame, a little grinding just to clean up the surface but the plates will remain as they are or can serve as a mounting point should I choose to reinstall sliders at a later time.

    They are a time proven design. Stubbs has supplied a lot of hard core rigs without issue.

    I spent about 45 minutes speaking to Richard Stubbs and expressed the very same concerns as you mention. He doesn't use gussets for some pretty good reasons and has not had issues for years. Mine don't flex a bit.
