I wore the tread down to nothing... few to many long road trips on'em... then I traded them for these grapplers..... I liked them a lot but these ride on the street a lot better

Lol. I bet. Longest trip on mine has been 300 miles. I've also only got 3,000 miles on mine in 5 years so they will dry rot before I wear them down.

The fuel door took a bit to get just right, but other than that it was pretty easy to put the new bedsides on.
the hard part was to take the original beds sides off

You think some sliders would have saved your bedside.
