Where can I get sliders for my 2002 FX4?

Hey
I've never found pre-fab sliders. I talked to a couple of guys who would make some for me but the longer we talked the more I realized they were likely just "winging it". It would be great if they were easily removable since I commute with the truck often. I'd like to think they guy who made them had made them before so that he's not experimenting with me.

Any ideas?
Thanks

If I can get enough interest I will be designing another set that is removable, the only problem is they will just cost more if you want them easily removable you have to worry about shipping size too.

One design I have in mind is a complete belly pan the bolts to the bottom of the frame and is connected in the center of the frame. I can always make them just like the set I have on my truck and that will cost 300 but they are weld on pieces and you will need to weld them on yourself to the frame.

I dont see why a slider would need to be removable because you commute?

I agree, there supposed to be able to use as a hi-lift jacking spot and to support your vehicle weight. When mine go on, they are on for good.
