    So I have been looking at the other thread on sliders and there seems to be a lot of information that is way over my head. I got that DOM is stronger than HREW, so with that said I am looking at these two options
    http://4xinnovations.com/pages/guarding/sliders.htm The one for 05 Taco and is DOM
    or
    http://www.stubbswelding.com/rocksliders.htm the HD-SKO
    What I don’t know is the cost associated with each, and by that I mean how much it’s going to take to put them on. The one from 4x is going to require a lot of welding, were as the one from Stubbs will only require someone to weld them to the frame.
    I’m not asking for specific figures, but just a general idea on what the cost would be to get it welded on for the stubs and assembled and welded for the 4x? I don’t know how to weld and I don’t know anyone that can do it. So I just want to get an idea of what I am in for cost wise…

    "All of our rock sliders are weld on units which are easy to install."

    Cost of getting them welded on really depends on the quality and business prices. I just got mine from 4xInnovations and paid $220 to get them on. I think that's the most I've ever heard anyone paying but it came with the peace of mind that the job was done well. I've heard of others paying $50 and the sliders get welded on uneven so that one side is not even with the other, resulting in paying more to getem cut off, then rewelded. Look around and find a reputable shop that really knows what they're doing.

    I would say somewhere between 220 and 50 oughta get you a good weld job. I paid 90 bones to get mine welded on. They did a great job, including sealing the welded areas with paint (I went back over it...but that's cause I'm kinda OCD about some stuff)

    Ok well, I'm just worried about the cost of having some one assemble all the pieces and then weld it into place. I have to say I really like the stubs, they look strong but what do I know...
