I have a feeling I'm not going to keep these sliders. They don't fit my plans at all. I don't like the way they mount and I'd rather not put extra holes in my body when they're just going to be replaced. I'll be back to work soon and I'll be able to pick up the 'Cloaks I intended on anyways. I can probably get most of my money back listing them separate with the option to finish building them for some extra. It was just a bad rushed purchase on my part.

Reasoning behind the Cloak sliders?

Truthfully, I'm not too thrilled with my MC sliders. Yeah, they look good and are strong as hell, but they are HEAVY and trap mud. It's really annoying to clean packed mud out of them. Plus they are way expensive. Not really worth the exorbitant price tag if you ask me.

Because it fits with and matches the Cloak fenders.

Mud doesn't bother me. Pressure washer fixes that. The price is rather high but They fit with the fenders.

Nothing a grinder can't fix.

True, but I like the style. That still counts for something, right?

Of course But it might save you a few bucks to run something else.

Them, paired with the fenders, will look really good with yellow.

I really like the clear coated steel/aluminum and some black for a two-tone.
