    Im getting quite a bit of rock chips all over my rocker panels, and I was thinking maybe some sliders will look good. I really dont need a step, or nerfs. I also want something nice and tight to the body.

    So give me some feed back please! and some sugestions. I was thinking Demello's bolt on's.

    By rock chips do you mean little rocks flying up from the road or like actually hitting bigger rocks. If for the latter I would totally recommend sliders, they have saved me some money for sure:D I like the Allpro sliders because of the kickers on the end of them, I have already seen those help me out in situations that people without the kickers have received damage.

    But there weld on. I want something that will just bolt right up. So If I wanted to take it off I can....

    So far all I found that look descent, are Demello's

    Any other options? Thanks guys!

Nice thing was I got the truck for $4000
    i get chips even with my mudflaps, because i have bigger tires, and they suck. Every time i wash my truck i see more and more. In Vermont if you leave em chip, the salt in the winter will rust it right out, so mabye i'll look into some rock sliders as well

    Yep my mud flaps dont work, and my tires rub them. So I think a descent rock slider/ nerf. is my only choice really.
