Here's another couple of photos of sliders from drc fabrications. Does some great work, also made them to suit my body lift.

no offence to those that have posted the drc sliders, but this is what I was reffering to by evry man and his dog has, could knock a set of those up on any given weekend if wanted

eighty8
that is what I was looking for very nice slider and step rolled into one, thank you

any one else got something to show, other than the DRC type sliders

i think eighty8's idea is great using the factory side step on custom fabed brackets for strength

the best thing about how them side steps are setup is you got the strength of a rock slider with the factory alloy step look its definitly got to be a win win situation if you need a good step for kids ect to jump in and out of the truck

I Have seen some on dave metcalfs winch truck a few years back that were pretty cool, he had cut out the sil, welded in some RHS and then attatched a simple tube type step to that was very solid as it was fully welded and looked almost factory, does not hinder any clearence either, makes for a pretty high step though.

why would you worry about clearance issues with a slier hemce the name just drag it over they are they to save your sills from getting damaged and sometimes as a step so cutting the sill would defeat the purpose of having them
