    Weld-on sliders are less expensive but since I'm not a welder, I'd have to have someone weld them on for me. What's the typical cost for someone to do this? Where would I go? Body shop, off-road specialty shop? I'd imagine, it might almost cost as much to just get bolt-ons after the welder gets paid for that job...maybe $100 for his work.

    Can weld-ons be removed later if need be, like if I want to return the truck back to stock form? Again more labor charge and would require the sliders to be rewelded with additional brackets for reuse.

    Hmm, forget it. Might as well use bolt-ons:rolleyes:

    you should probably go to an offroad shop not just any body shop. and if you have plans to remove them the cleaner way would be bolt on, thats all i can provide

    Mine ran 190 to get welded up. I hear they can remove them pretty well. My thoughts are like yours, just leave the bracket on the frame if I ever needed to take them off. I called quite a few places in my area before I found a place called SouthEastern Truck and Body. Found out they do all the trucks for the city that require toolboxes, heavy duty bumpers and all that stuff.

    I paid 80 bucks to get mine welded on...And I dont' ever intend on taking them off.

    If you are thinking there might be a time you want to remove them-You'll be better off paying a bit extra for bolt ons IMHO.

    I got quoted 70 to put mine on. I would get weld ons if you ever want to take them off...they can be grinded off and the weld points can be painted over. It takes a little more work to fix a bunch of holes in your frame.

    Yeah, they originally quoted me 140, then I went to get it and it was 190. DC LB has 5 brackets on each side also. I couldn't find anywhere else that would weld to the frame. They were all worried about frying the electronics.
