Are you in Albuquerque? If so, so am I. I took my truck to a local off-road place and asked for some custom sliders due to the length and I wanted to shop local...big mistake, they installed some 4 door Jeep sliders around 75", which are way too short to protect the entire rocker panel. Friend picked it up for me and asked why they were so short, no answer. Hopefully we get some kind of resolution because they're really just a sturdy steps right now that are too short up front and the rear. That's what I get for shopping local.

Looks good. I just don't think I could ever bring myself to weld onto the frame. I just wouldn't want to introduce the stress points the heat will cause. The other thing for me is I really use rock sliders, so I like to be able to take them off to repair if needed. I'd much rather drill holes than weld them.

You are obviously a man of function over form, and certainly over glitz, but I have to point one thing out.

The best thing about any white vehicle, is that deck stripes look amazing on them. Any color.

Just sayin'.
