I picked up my sliders today, Now one day next week I will get them coated with Napa #4004 stone guard then have them installed when I get the new lift installed in sometime towards the end of February !


The pic is the bottom of the sliders I will get more pics when I go to paint them

Thanks, I have not even had a chance to really look at them closely. I left work on my lunch break to pick up the sliders, Then went to 4Wheel Parts and picked up my ARB tire deflator Part#ARB505 to replace the one I lost when I moved since it was on the way back to work.

I had painted the sliders today, I couldn't wait until Wednesday to paint them, However I forgot to paint the pinch seam braces so I will paint them on Wednesday !

They are Textured, I used Napa #4004 stone guard, It hold up a bunch better than paint and does not chip !

Here are todays new additions to my part collection. So now my lift is now complete. Sometime over next few weeks I will have the Lift, Rock Sliders and Wheels installed. Then Phase 1 of my Build will be complete. I have to save for phase 2 now.

No problem ! I plan on keeping it updated fairly regularly. My wife has put me on a spending limit since we are in the process of buying a house this year.
Otherwise I would have ordered my Bumpers and longarm already

Yep they are the Bilstein 5100's. I used them on my Tj and Yj. It's the only shock I will run but if they were not available I would have considered OME shocks
