I am only making 3 sets at this price. This is a test price to see if I need to charge more for shipping and what not. It will also let me decide if I want to make more sets. So it could be the only 3 I make and ship. If you are not satisfied when you get them I will make it up to you some how. I want the buyers to be happy.

150 down payment.

an additional 150 before shipment. So 300 total.

Here's the catch, I love the function and I would love to have them, but most people who ride in my truck, especially family, complain about how high my truck is now and how hard it is to get in, and being about to lift it, I am going to need some steps.

300 bucks well worth it in my opinion

Would you be willing to add steps kinda like these to the bottom of the sliders, but still as strong as the rest of the sliders?
Maybe have the step come off the bar closest to the body...

Zach don't take this the wrong way but what is the difference between your silders and the trail-gear sliders that are a third of what you want?

I think the $300 includes shipping, right? I wish I lived closer, cause $300 installed would be a great deal (I cant weld for ****)

I think the difference is the type of tubing. If I remember right the ones from TG are not solid like Zach's. The tubing is welded or something. IDK he can explain it better.

The main difference is that Zacks are made from DOM which adds alot of $. Also don't forget you have to add the price of shipping.

This is from the TG site

Note: 58" & 67" Rock Sliders are now made from seamless DOM material. 78" sliders are made from HREW material.

Made from 1 3/4" X .120 round tubing.

Zach I'm not trying to mess with your sales, I just want to make sure spending the extra money with you is worth it.

nope, not taking it the wrong way. that is fine, everyone can have their choice where they want to buy them

Trail gear probably has better (prettier) welds that me too.

Trail gear 99$ sliders are made from HREW which is around half the tensile strength of DOM.

1010 HREW is somewhere around 45,000 psi in yield strength
1020 DOM is around 60,000 to 75,000 psi in yield strength

from a quick good search. DOM is more of a dense metal. which is stronger.

my sliders are 81" long and 4 tubes to the frame. mounting is up to you just like trail gear.

like i said, nothing against trail gear or anyones decision its all yours. if no one wants some then that is cool too, just offering it.

question.. I am really wanting some sliders for my truck when it gets out here, so i can take the steps off.. mainly because the steps are just going to get in the way i think.. but, i have no idea what size to get.. on TG's website they have different lengths for the Taco, but nothing for the ranger, would the ones for the taco work on a ranger? and which length would i need? I have a 4door XLT..

not saying i would get these over zabeards, just looking at all options...

well in coming months i might definitely be interested, funds dont allow for that right now.

but if you do start producing them, you've definitely got a customer in me a few months down the road.
plus, i'd much rather keep the money in the ranger family instead of shelling it out to some big name company.
