Cheapest ZJ Sliders You Can Get!

So I was doing some pretty intensive searching to find the cheapest set of sliders at the best value and I stumbled across this local guy who makes them. $250 for a set of sliders with a step rail AND already painted, $80 to ship mostly anywhere in the U.S.. To me that's an unbeatable deal for $250 picked up locally. The ZJ section on his website is under construction so if you want the sliders just call/text him and he'll tell you to buy the WJ sliders but still build them for the ZJ. Picking mine up next week, thought I would let you guys in on a good deal! Link below:

I wonder why the step rails don't run the full length of the rocker like they do on the wj in the craigslist ad, but maybe I can ask him to make them longer. can you post a pic of how they attach?

I don't have them yet, but they bolt to the unibody and pinch seam beneath the door.

Also just spoke with the guy about the side rail length, his response: "Actually the ZJ ones go the full length now, we changed the design on that part."

Very similar to mine; ~2.5"x2.5" square tube, kickers back to the unibody and pinch weld connections, outer tube on a slight upward angle.

Had them fabbed up, same cost addly enough.

Ridiculously strong as well, scraped them up good and you can use them as a HiLift point if needed.

Thats pretty much how KOR sliders work. I had them on my old ZJ they were tough as nails. Just screwed in with self tapping screws and you could lift the whole truck up with them.

So far the only thing I can say about these sliders is that the customer service is awful, still haven't gotten them..
