    I finally got the time to install my Stubbs, HD SKO sliders today. I removed the stock running boards last night and grabbed the welder this morning. It took me a bit longer than I expected, mostly due to the awkward position I had to assume on the driveway to get the welds done. They fit really well, with the exception of some minor misalignment on the passenger side. I think they look great, they make the truck seem so much taller compared to the old steps. They are certainly seem sturdy, I haven't tried to jack up the truck by them yet, but they don't flex with my weight on them.

    If you guys are looking for a good product at a good rpice, give Richard Stubbs a call, he is a super nice guy. http://www.stubbswelding.com

    Started out with the factory running boards:

    Looks good, I keep looking at those from Stubbs, any problem welding? What kind of welder did you use? I have an arc welder that has many adjustable settings, that is my plan when I get some,, also pictires of the welds if possible??? Nice looking result.

    I have a 115volt Miller 140 Auto Set. Some of the welds are a little ugly, I am no professional, but I got good penetration. No pics of the welds, they are all painted over now, not much to see.

    I have been looking at getting a set of these. Hope you can help me with some questions. Have you wheeled them yet or used a high lift jack on them? What is your take on Stub's? I have put in a call to them but haven't heard back yet. I love the way they go the full length wheel to wheel, most don't do that. Solid protection. Did you get them painted or did they come that way? What type paint is it? They look like they stick out enough to be used a a step in and possible even deflect shoping carts and or doors. Do they help with that stuff too? Thank you so much for your help. Your truck looks awesome with those!

    Thank you.

    I like the sliders, Richard Stubbs put together a good product. I have not had a high lift on them yet nor have they hit any rocks, but, I have jumped on them with no movement. Richard swears that he has some hardcore clients wwith this product with no issues.

    I painted them myself, I recommend Rust-Oleum. I used a paint from The Eastwood company and it did not hold up well, I need to repaint once it warms up around here.

    The sliders stick out plenty to be used as a step, a bit too much in fact, they tend to hit the back of my calf when entering and exiting, great for trail protection, not so great on dress pants. I have not had a door hit them yet, but as far as they stick out, I am sure that they will offer protection against that as well.

    Shoot Richard an email, he is pretty good about getting back to people, odd that he hasn't called you yet. he is a super nice guy and will explain how to mount them and why his sliders are designed they way that they are.
