    Timberland Mica 09 DBL CAB 4x4 TRD OFF ROAD
    TRD cat back exhaust, rain visors, limo tent on back pasenger windows and 35 percent added to back factory tint window. 35 on front driver and pasenger side. Sport pedals, all weather fl mats, roof rack, front skid plate , BFG ALL TERAINS including spare. ALL installed by dealer.
    If yours is powder coated due you have to repowder coat every now
    and then? Does anybody use a paint like rustoleum for easy touchup? Also would like to know if anyone has experienced rusting on there sliders? Rather it be All pro or Shockworks or Stubbs are any other kind of slider. I would think that once the paint was gone they could start to rust if not repainted. Thanks for your help guys.

    I use rustoleum hammered finish. Lowes or HD. Not to match powdercoat though.

    The sliders will rust if the paint comes off in anyway. My philosophy is that as long as the join welds aren't rusting then some surface rust along the tubes is okay.

    I have to touch up my sliders after major excursions. I'm using Rustoleum hammered.

    What you see in this picture is my slider after a 200 mile excursion through Death Valley. I hauled ass on some gravel roads and I don't have any mudguards and my sliders took a beating. You can see too that there is a major rub on the outside slider from a rock.

    The beauty about repainting them is that it's so easy. Wash them off, dry them, insert cardboard between truck body and sliders and go to town.

    Powder coating makes sense only if the truck is not going to be wheeled offroad.
