    After my research, trail gear is the best "bang for buck."

    Trail gear most of the people I wheel with in my trail rig have trail gear sliders. We do abuse our rigs. If you have a welder get the sliders where you weld the legs on gives you more options in mounting.

    Why do you say that? Got gaydar or something? :confused:

    OP, check out BAMF Or JLee. He's a vendor here and does excellent work. When I convince my husband to let me have sliders, I'm going this route. I've seen them in action and they have done a great job at saving trucks in dire situations.

    I run Trail-Gear sliders and like the others have said they are the best bang for the buck, followed closely by 4xInnovations. I've beat the shit out of them with no noticeable damage.

    ^ We've always wanted to build some, we just have absolutely no experience with that kind of metal working, but you've got to start somewhere

    I think both the TG and 4X sliders are good sliders. The 4X will be more work compared to the TGs if you get the prewelded TG sliders. You can get stronger DOM 4X sliders for a reasonable price and you can get the optional kickouts on the 4X sliders as well. You can't go wrong with either of them though.

    Yeah he has a welder and I think maybe a torch.. We're just young and inexperienced and don't have the money to screw up $200 worth of metal when we don't have a clue what were doing lol
