    Ok, just got the All-pro bolt on (yeah right, goes right on:D) sliders done and put on. I wanted bolt on so I had the option of removing them. Well these things will be sold with the truck now. What a pain in the farging icehole!

    Still might have to get the front drivers side welded because the self tappers are not holding well. These things were so warped it was a complete pain to put them on. It has kind of spoiled my attitude on All-pro. I took a chance because of a sale price and now this might be the last product I get from them. I know it's hard to make a bolt on product like this for millions of vehicles but there could have been some better quality control as far as keeping these things square in the jig while welding them up.

    They were so warped we had to use a jack in areas just to get a good frame grab. Mix matching bolts (longer) to pull the sliders to the frame, etc...and there is still a gap in a few places even after using an impact wrench to try and pull it close. Ridiculous. On a positive note they are solid (except for the drivers side front) and should hold up well to abuse.

    Scratched the powder coat (i know:rolleyes:) already just putting them on. If anybody wants pics, look'em up, I'm too frustrated right now. :mad:

    i make things cook Marshmallows
    if they warped i would have called allpro right away and had them deal with it man, maybe they had a bad batch

    either id still call them up, your post was hard to follow the way you posted i got lost in words and no spacing, but my phone sucks for reading longer posts aswell

    Well I had them mocked up on the truck by a local off road shop and then had them powder coated. The shop said they were warped but obviously didn't say or realize how bad. I have had them for months because of lack of funds for powder and stuff and just now got it done.

    I know they stand behind their stuff but if you are sending something across the country like that I just think the quality control should have been better. They are on now and like I said, if anything, I will have a bead run down on the drivers side front mount and then they will be solid. It sure was frustrating. :cool:

    Installed a Battery Bug, actually a week ago, been watching it to get a better opinion.

    http://www.argusanalyzers.com/battery-monitors.html

    Seems to operate as advertised and looks encouraging. Only time will tell.
    I used the hand-held unit (instead of the long leads version) so I could readily move it from vehicle to vehicle.
    The readout alternates between battery condition and voltage. You don't have to keep checking it as it emits beeps when below 10% capacity remaining.

    Just screwed the connectors to the battery under an additional nut on the clamps. Used a heavy rubber band to secure it to the cross member on the battery holder. Made the band out of an annular slice off a motorcycle inner tube. EZ

    Installed stepbars. Bonehead mistake ordering. Purchased 2011 tacoma double cab steps. Not the same as 2011 tacoma double cab " prerunner " steps. (Brackets are different). Didnt want to screw with the returning so went to Home depot bought 3in. wide plate steal and added on to supplied brackets. Dumb ass.
