LoD rock sliders - installed!
Finally got my sliders installed after a few hiccups this weekend. With that behind me, I can say I think they're awesome. The wife loves that they have a step, so she can finally get in the Jeep rather than climbing in. If anyone is looking at these, I'm happy to answer any questions. Before and after pictures attached.

On both sides of the Jeep, the sliders use the transmission skid plate mounting holes and bolts. The problem is that I have a manual transmission, so no stock bolts. No idea why LoD wouldn't provide those two bolts. It took half a day to figure out what size I needed and then another half day to find them. The bolts are an odd size and not stocked anywhere (Jeep uses a non-standard thread pitch). A thanks goes out to my local Ace Hardware for having them!
I'm impressed with how solid they are. I have no doubt they will take anything I throw at them.
Nice looking and look very functional...go put some rock rash on them....lol

Last bit of advice. There is a drill and tap set made by Kawasaki I think (LoD pictures it in their instructions). Guys had problems with it as the drill bit was too large. I found that kit and the bit size was literally the wrong size for the tap.
