Why not these? It's what I have, plus you get them with tubes for $289.

Trust me its much easier to call the companies to place orders, often times when you call they will give you another discount. Just ask what discounts are out there. Why are you wanting to spend so much money on rockers? You're always complaining about not having cash to do stuff. Don't waste it on a name. I'd get crown. They are the cheapest and they will take a ****ing beating. Marcus has the warn ones which is the same design. He flopped his jeep in ship wreck, mashed the gas and flipped back over and landed on that slider. No damage at all to the slider. He said it hit so hard his back hurt like hell the next morning and he has suspension seats.

Why don't we like things to mount to the body bolt? I forgot why that's bad.

Apparently it prevents preload which is bad thing. I'm not convinced it makes any realizable difference though. I've smacked the **** out of my Trail Gear sliders with no damage to the tub.

It doesn't seem logical that 3/16th's would make enough of a difference to worry about, especially if you chop down the body lift pucks to make room for the slider.

I split my finger wide open using an exacto knife to cut a ziptie. I'd end up chopping my damn head off with a saw

Yes preloading is better than not preloading. But if it made such a big difference i'm pretty sure my buddy's tub would be destroyed because if you asked him about preloading he would just laugh. Mine aren't preloaded either and my tub is fine. You just have to be sure that it is completely flush on the tub when mounting it or else you will have issues.

You get what you pay for remember. If I were u I would buy the rokmen with no tubes. You get [2] 45 degree bends. Plus a better mounting system and quality and American made.

You talking about me? Cuz I have no idea what preloading sliders is.... But I promise you the tub would be bent where mine is if you "preloaded" them!
