    hey you bald bastard check out silver07taco's suggestion, allpro has tons on great stuff and they specialize in Toyota's.
    P.S. I'm scared of a man named Scott Peterson!

    What would you say are the main differences between the budbuilt and allpro? Do they fit better? thicker steel? Thanks man

    Thanks man. I noticed you have the shrockworks sliders. I've been teetering between the allpros and the shrocks. What do you think of your shrockworks? They seem to be a little pricey, worth the doe? Does anyone else have the allpro sliders? Thanks

    yep

    if anyone is ever lucky enough to meet bud...he is an incredible guy and he builds an incredible product

    he's been running his own skids on his own truck for years and he will wheel the piss out of that truck

    [​IMG]

    When i first ordered my skid he remembered me and my truck from the first time i met him and still to this day when i call him to discuss stuff he remembers my truck and asks how certain stuff is holding up etc...

    i will promote his stuff till its no longer available :thumbsup:

    FWIW I jacked up the driver's side of my truck to work on the front suspension, got distracted mid-project, and didn't get back to the garage until 3 days later. I used a HiLift and the outer round tube of the Shrockworks sliders as the jacking point.

    Left like that for 3 days and there's absolutely no warping on those sliders. The jack wasn't even close to any of the frame mounts either. They're well worth the cost and any wait!

    3 tube, and for me they shipped the sliders with the frame mounts detached so I could position them to work with my cage. Great guys and they'll work with you to make sure you're happy with the product.
