I just ordered the stage 3 sliders today. I can't wait. What did you do to finish them? I'm thinking just primer and a top coat of black enamel.

I'd love to get them powder coated, but that's a little out of my price range for something I'm going to beat up anyhow.

Pretty thick compared to most prefab sliders. They also have a great mounting design.

Lil_joe, how'd the mounting go for you?

On my list of things to do.....I hope it works. Tired of hearing it when I turn and am on the brakes, pulling out of my drive way, hell anytime the wheels are turned and they get a lil articulation. Or even Jus turned hard over and moving.

PITA by my self and too small of a floor jack, FYI each one weighs 52 lbs. would highly suggest a corded drill and sharp drill bits

Went to do a little shakedown test and to flex the suspension, all kinds of scary popping noises now

Installed my Apollo 100w spotlamps up front today, wired to high beams. Night and day difference.
