Sliders on...FINALLY!!!

Finally got around to getting these bad boys welded on. I was short 2 of those spider web gussets, which sucks. But they should be here soon from Trailgear.

Should give me a little more confidence when it comes to trying harder lines on the trail without trashing the body. So badass I love it!!!!

Grinded the fender down some to keep it away from the tires after I cut the plastic off.

I painted the top side already, you can kind of see it. Didn't want to mess with that after they were on.

If the rain will stop here I'm gonna go out and paint the rest of them.

Bout freaking time! You should have completely painted them before mounting them, that would have been much easier.

They look good but my guess is they should have moved at all right? what happens when you land on'em...

Yeah, painting them would have been easier before we put them on. But we were in a rush, getting them welded was more important than paint.

..and when I say they budged I mean they moved like a 1/4" with the whole side of the truck jacked up. Just a little flex in the tube. If I land on them they'll do the job for sure!!
