Installation of the front bumper was really straight forward. To bolt up the skid plate, it helps to have an extra pair of hands to hold it up while the other person threads the bolts. Everything else can be done with one person. For the stock fogs, Shrockworks says you can unclip the stock wiring and pull it through to get the extra length needed, but I just extended my wires by soldering in several inches of extra wire.
I have their sliders too. They're very solid. Mine have taken a bunch of smacks and scrapes, and are holding up well. No dents or bends, just scratches. I put a strip of grip tape on the top, along the entire length of them because otherwise they're quite slippery when used as a stepper. If you do this make sure the grip tape is only on top and doesn't wrap around to the sides, otherwise you'll scrap your leg on them when getting in and out while wearing shorts.
