The look interesting, but it seems like they would limit down travel even more than a shackle would. I bet they would be great on the road and in high speed desert type stuff but not so much for articulation.

Friends dont let friends do DUBS.

a few here have used them, they seem to be more popular on NAXJA, i haven't read anything bad about them during normal use, the racers/prerunners dont seem to like them though, due to the UHMW bushings being destroyed quickly in competition use.

I believe RoyalXJ was running them, he had some flex shots posted someplace. They looked like they gave more downtravel than most shackle setups. Definitely better than running a vertical shackle anyway.

Consider what kind of an arch the shackle makes during leaf travel, and how long is that arc?

LIIs sliders actually have quite a lot of available travel built into them, and IIRC the way they arre built makes the spring rate slightly progressive towards end of travel. The design IMO seems great and judging by the pics I've seen they are very well built. Like was mentioned downside I've heard is the bushing wear on heavy use. But under heavy use leaf/ shackle bushings wear out just as well.

I've had a set in the garage for months, just need to find time to put them on. In theory, they look like they'll articulate really well and also provide a very smooth ride on the road or in fast bumps.

HeavyMetal has run them for quite a while.

Do they affect the height at all or do they sit at 3.5in?

It went up like half an inch but I took 2 leafs out so now it sits level and is even smoother than the front. RE leafs are too stiff IMO.

These look very interesting... Do they interfere w/ the stock bumper? Can these be installed with a hitch already mounted?

Yes you will need to trim your stock bumper slightly, and the hitch would need to go on after sliders are installed.

Ill post pics of both later.

That's what I figured; the "tail piece" of those sliders look to be right where the bumper goes. And I was thinking the hitch would go on after these brackets (longer bolts too), but just wanted to clarify. Looks interesting! I wonder what the life of the slider is (i.e. daily driver w/ some weekend wheeling thrown in)...
