got my new sliders installed and got a chance to test out the coilovers this weekend. so far so good on the coils. I have some fine tuning to do with spring rates and ride height but that's good fun.

Rocky roads super sliders



Installed



close up



went on a quick run over nachees pass and up to government meadows. this is at the meadows and the only picture I got on trail





and a poser shot or 2 I grabbed on our way out when we stopped to look at a camp site.









happy with the sliders they should do what they are suppose to and while I got very close to laying them on stumps didn't test them this trip.

I like those sliders too, can you take a close up pic of the mounting location?

I will snap some next time I am home. but basically it used the stock torsion bar cover mounts then 2 holes in the middle of the frame rail and then the rear mount attaches to the rear cab mount.

yep works fine I tried it for fun but prefer to use my wheel lift to keep the truck closer to the ground.

Thanks, the reason I'm curious is because I'm buying a transfer case skid plate and I don't want the mounting locations to interfere with each other

no problem there, the t-case skid mounts to the bottom of the frame, sliders mount to the side.

heres some pics from my bachelor party it was great to get everybody together and go up in the mountains. took my truck and my buddies 350. we did some white water rafting, then camped over night up in the naches area.

heres what we woke up to in the morning. mount Rainier sunrise.





look out at the rest of the view













this was home for the night





we were well prepared for camping and wheeling but were decidedly lacking on cooking utensils. we had a grill but only one great that did not match the grill.

had to improvise

what size wrench do you use to cook your eggs - 3/4"



bacon was done with needle nose pliers



super thick bacon



oh and we also forgot plates



Busted one of my wheels



and poser shots









heres his truck





and some better pics of the coils all finished from doing my brakes tonight

Here's some pictures from training up in the Naches area last weekend, had a great time and put the rock sliders to use coming over a root ball. conditions were slick and the truck never missed a beat.














some flex shots from turning around on a single track road

I have seen this truck start to finish, i was there for about half the pictures, and I've helped do some of the shock work as well as the front hitch. I just want to throw out my .2. Mikes truck is as nice, if not nicer than the pics show. his interior and attention to detail is crazy. his truck is incredibly well built, and mike is sooo particular and thourough in all the work he does, I've learned a lot helping him, and a lot with him helping me on my SD. This truck is so well built, I'm positive the only reason my 94' will keep up with him is the fact that its dentable ha ha. I forgot what it looked like before since its been so long, but the before and after is incredible. I don't know what else you can possibly do ha ha. S/C perhaps???? Ha ha good thread man, OH! and the SD in your camping pics Is dead sexy.
