Sliders installed

Finally replaced those cheesy plastic steps with Body Armor rock sliders. My sliders showed up while I was changing the oil yesterday,

install was pretty streight forward however I'm a little concerned about rust. When I tightened the mounting brackets down there was a little chipping around the pinch seam mount holes.

When I attached the rails there was no clearance between them and the seam so they had to be tightened into place causing some more chipping. I'm gonna remove the rails Thursday when its warm enough to paint and do the best I can to touch up the areas. Other than that they are awesome, they mount right to the body same as the OEM steps, 3 bolts for each bracket, 2 through the seam and one up into the tub.

This is looking streight up at bracket, the largest silver bolts attach the rails to the bracket.
Anyway here they are.
