I dont understand. You are bitching about this guy that didnt do anything wrong?

Basically anyway. He bolted the sliders to the body (correct). and he welded them, i'm assuming struts, to the frame (also correct). I guess he could have welded a tab to the frame and bolted the slider to it, but the slider should be attached to the frame for rigidity.

If you just bolt it to the body, and slide it on a rock, its going to cave in the body, and if you just hook it to the frame and not the body, the first rock will bend it up into the body. True sliders have to be mounted to both the body and the frame to withstand what they are intended to do.

So dont Dis this guy, if he didnt do it exactly the way you had it planned or invisioned. I dont think he did anything wrong.

ok this is what it is .. a bolted peice of thick angle iron bolted to the body then a 1.5 in tube welded to the angle iron then bend in and welded to the frame 5 inches to the rear of the rear spring hanger. so my 33s rub on the 1.5 bar and im putting 37s next week ALSO installed was a roll bar that prevents me from taking off my windshield frame all the torx bolts are blocked. and bolted to the pan all this has pulled and streched to the point of the cross bar of the wind shield is hitting the dashboard, SO this work was done in 08 and i just now caught it because i want 37s and a new windshield frame.
