Dude,

First of all...grammar and spelling...please study and practice. I could barely understand what the hell you were asking.

2nd, this has been discussed to death...use the search button.

All Pro, Bent-Up, 4 crawler you can't go wrong. Make sure there is enough space between the top of the slider and the bottom of the cab. Also make sure that it can support the weight of the truck. Various debates as to whether you should drill or weld. I chose to weld.

:rofl:

I bought the ones at www.trail-gear.com for 200 bucks. Probably not the best for hardcore rock crawling since they are just straight without extra rear rocker panel protection, but I'm not a hardcore rock crawler so it doesn't matter.

I built my own, and I can say, that after making them, I probaby won't make another set for anyone else unless it's for me. Took over a month or so to make them, but boy was it worth it.

I used Sch 40 1.5" pipe (the OD is 1.9") and I bolted them on using all the stock holes. The front incorporates the frame hole on the side and the tranny crossmember, and the back two utilize a U that bolts through the stock locations. I chose this design over welding because I felt it distributes the pressure more, and I can remove it when needed.

Note that doing it this way takes a lot of time because the holes must line up. Even when welding, I had to take it in place, take it down, then weld a long stick of metal between all the mounting brackets. The metal still warped a little bit (probably 1/16" on al the holes). If I did not do this I can't even imagine how much it would have warped.

You can read through this thread. There is a lot of information and at the end is the finished product.

Trail-gears sliders are plenty strong enough for hardcore stuff.

Didn't say they weren't. I said they don't have a kickout on the side, for those that want more protection at the extra/double cab back half.

He's from Quebec, i.e. French is his first language... His English is probably better than your second language.
