Most of where I need protection in the past was in the center so I am going to cross my fingers and hope I don't mess up the exhaust. I finally go it just the way I want it.

How did they mount up for you? Have any issues at all? Gimme some feedback on the install!

They turned out great! I think we could have gone a bit longer on that passenger side
It was a tight squeeze in there with no BL. Just had a little room between the bottom of the cab and the part that goes between the frame and the sliders themselves. I agree, I think we could have gone a tad longer on the passenger side, but oh well, it'll work.



Thanks for all the comments guys!

Here are some undercarriage pictures. It it a tight squeeze to make these fit without a body lift.

Right side:

On it's way and I can't tell you how irritated I am about getting the runaround. I have all the stuff for the rear in the garage and the spindles are all I lack and that's what I paid the most. Driving me nuts!

The sliders look amazing!

Is there a reason why you mounted 11.5 inch wide tires on a 10 inch wide wheel?

Yes. I planned on going with bigger tires later on and I needed new wheels so i went ahead and got the 10" wheels. I will be going up to 33x12.50's after I get lifted(if my spindles ever come in).

Its my OPINION but i would def go with the KM2's. good mileage tire and they are pretty quit for what they are. I have had mine on for only a few days and with drivin it i LOVE them!!! and they are a very aggressive tire!! BTW i'll make sure i bring my my cutting wheel with me if you need help. just don't get too upset if sliders and me come up missin!! J/K!!

looks great, now you need to track down some Black edge flares of paint yours. that would tie the bumper and the sliders together.

No way I'd do a BL. I would have to redo my front and rear bumpers and sliders and exhaust. I'll just stick with the suspension lift whenever it comes in.

My e-brake cable rubs on one of the slider supports on my sliders. It's no big deal.

Have you had a chance to do a hard flex with the sliders on? the reason i ask is i was wondering if the bed hit the slider any when flexed out because the frame twists a lil with bed when flexed.
