This was in another thread, thought I'd put it out on its own for others to see a few options.
I was shopping around for Sliders.

I was looking for bolt on ones, as not a fan of welding to chassis.. Others have done it without problem, just wasnt my fav option.

Heres a few I found. These prices are valid as of today.. they can be changed at anytime.. by the manufacturer etc..

I got some fitted by XLR8 fabrications a few weeks back - very happy with them, they are bolt on and the lead time was only a couple of weeks.

Might be a good option for WA people.

No connection to seller etc, just a happy customer

I too have Cheezy's and have had the full weight of the Pootrol on them several times and they have never moved.

The sliders themselves are not weld on- plates are welded on to the chassis, and the sliders are bolted to the plates.

What is your issue with weld on like this? Remove the sliders and you could bolt the std garbage alloy crap back on no problems.

Speak to ben at 4by Fabs about it, or ring Cammeron at Cammo offroad in Sommerville. Either can use mine as a template if you need to.

if I had the option of weld or not weld, I'd rather not. just a preference thats all.

Since we are being comprehensive I have a few questions.

Can All of the sliders in the list be fitted without a body lift. I read somewhere that there is not much room between the chassis and the body for the bolts for the bolt-on ones.

Also, will the sliders fit all LWB GU's. I read somewhere that there was something different about the later ones that required different mountings.

CORRECTION: from the ARB GU pricelist: models with factory rear air conditioning units prevent side rails and protection step fitment as air conditioning pipes run down the vehicle chassis.

That said, there is a new GU at my local ARB with their steps fitted. Not sure if it has rear aircon.

Some of the websites list different part numbers for Series IV and later. Others say you must specify model due to differences in the design.

From what I found calling around:

Most are custom made on the day to suit your rig.
The off the shelf ones, you just tell them what you want. They do without body lift - well not one site mentions requires a BL.

Also, will the sliders fit all LWB GU's. I read somewhere that there was something different about the later ones that required different mountings.
later models are different.

I guess this doesnt help much shopping for used ones, but by surfing the links, you'll narrow it down to suit your own gear.

Thanks to Truckster for this thread, and other members info in the "TJM steps" thread. After doing a bit of looking around I have found a set of steps/sliders and a rear bar for the GU.

Spoke with Millweld (Millweld Customs) this morning and orders steps and rear bar. The sliders on their website weren't the style I was after (mainly for the wife to get in and out easily), but after a quick phone call, it's all sorted. They will do a step that is as strong as their slider and place a panel across the top.

How's that for service!
:cheers:

I'm looking for sliders for my new GU and it has factory rear air con. I was under it the other day looking at this same issue. There is space for chassis brackets to work with teh rear air con, but unsure if the mass produced places have factored it in.

Personally I think I will be doing mine myself so I can ensure nothing factory is touched or damaged etc.

ARB Steps and rear air cond.

Swerve, I have the ARB protection steps on mine and its a ST-L (has the rear air cond.), I bought them second hand and fitted them myself, and as far as I could see there was no issues with this at all that I noticed, the mounts are nowhere near the a/c pipework. I am pretty happy with them but I did remove the ugly arb rubber pads/step treads on the top and the stainless plate and redone them with some alloy treadplate/checkerplate, looks much better now.

Truckster,
How much did they hit you to repair the sills? Mine look like yours.

I know Bolsy makes them to suit with or without body lift, your choice. He also has a different model for earlier and later GU's because the front guards change slightly
