As you can see from the pictures doesn't look to bad. If you notice my zip ties there, that is where I had my rock lights. No good Slider slides onto that lip and then bolts in. So I had to move my rock lights farther up inside. sorry no pics of this.

Few days went by I had to take them to body shop I was going to have them install them. Changed my mind had then paint them with por 15. Picked them up yesterday after work 3pm.

Went home and got ready for install. I started about 4pm and finished 8pm ( just as dusk was setting I was finishing ( kinda ). I started by jacking the sliders up and getting them in place.





I was worrying about the gaps and just curious what the sliders would cover and what they would look like. here ya go

Install So they are in place I took a center punch eyed it to the center. punched it and then dropped the slider. I did the 2 out side ones first.





After that I lifted the slider back up to do the ones underneath eyed them punched them and dropped the slider. drilled my holes and then used the provided tool to install nut-sitters. One thin i Learned quick. Put the tool together and then put it in the hole I used a bigger nut Instead of the provided one for better grip and better usage. Once I have tool in place I used and impact and a wrench. Worked and was fast. Installed slider and the holes did not line up. So I dropped the slider again and used the drill to drill out the holes on the slider. Put it back up and installed all the bolts went in good except one in the front. I then switched to the other side. Decided it was easier just to go all the way from the beginning. So put slider in place. Center punched holes. This time I decided to use a small drill bit and drill with the slider in place. worked good. Dropped the slider and then took a 9/16 drill bit I had to buy because the 1/2 went dull. drilled out the holes. The first hole I did was the rear drive side and the bit grabbed to much metal. I figured it would be alright when the nut-sitter expanded. Drilled the rest. Installed the nut-sitters all good. Put the back up tried to line everything up, didn't work so I drilled out the sliders again. Lifted them back got the bolts install except the front one I ended up cross threading the hole. I stood on them and jumped a little and the rear where the bit took to much metal let the nut-sitter come out a little. So its not tight as of right now.

Thanks for all the pics. Sliders looks great ... And very beefy. Are planning on modifying the stock rocker panel trim to fill in the void in the door sill and area above the SA sliders.

There really isn't much missing. If you open the door you can see the holes and then in the front the big gap I was planning on modifing it looks as if you'll have to cut off the bottom plastic parts that are for the rivets and maybe a little more if I can Thursday I plan on nodding them we will see .

One other thing I can't see them being slippery maybe when wet a little but you really don't need to step on them to get in I can kinda hop in over them and I'm only 5'7 maybe if u got a sl. Also they stick out but not to bad I like to climb on them sometimes when I get in. One thing I diffidently recommend is setting the tool up with the nut sert and then put in the hole and have someone hold the wrench while you drove it 3 to 4 turns. BTW I tighten the nut set snug first made using them easy.

Your SA slider install looks great, I'm going to use it to install mine too.

I like the way they look with the tires. I've read your build, and the tires are 255's I think. What size are they (255/70/17) and what width are the spacers?

Any luck with the stock rocker covers? I hope they can be modified to fit over the gaps. I plan on bedlining the area under the plastic covers just in case I can't get them back on.

You're doing a great job eith the WK.

TC

You bet.

I'm wondering what the actual size of your tires are.
I want to get the same look that you have.
