    These Rock sliders are mounted to body where the original running board where mounted to by bracket which made of heavy duty metal also it is design to fall under the channel below doors it takes 10 minutes to install every side .the top cover can be color code painted or just solid color. there will be no drilling of the frame or welding .they are very light weight and strong.

    Can we get some pictures with the truck supported fully on one end of the slider? I have my doubts that the step mounts will hold the truck.

    icon suspension

    RCsGX i think i will get the same setup as you have for suspension i been reading about so many different combination of suspension i think i start having nightmares. my 3 questions are 1- how is the ride with new suspension is it like a jeep rough? or is it civil 2- once you put the 5100 in rear can the air suspension be tricked to any level or does it have to just go up 3- when i do this suspension up grade is the there any fuses or part i need to remove .as some people mention it but they do not give specific location of these fuses.thanks

    thanks for taking time to explain and posting pictures .mean while this morning I visited the shop called sierra expedition .they also recommended icon but they also said I should do the rear coil and shocks from icon with labor grand total of $2000.00 and they would not do it if I bring the parts. which of course I know why but any way .what are your thoughts on that and the price ?
    also dropped the GX on a tree trunk to test the sliders everything still good condition no dent or flex.of course we built these not to go rock crowling for that we have jeeps we wanted something looking nice and not so big like running boards also something functional at the time of needs .

    If that's Icon's "stage 1" kit below I'd say that's a pretty good deal since labor (tax too?) is included. Icon's "stage 1" kit below sells for almost $1,800.00.

    • 58640 - Standard Travel Adjustable Coil-over Shock Kit
    • 52700 - 2" Lift Rear Coil-spring Kit
    • 56505 - Icon Series Rear Mono-tube Shocks


    If you're getting the "stage 1" kit above w/ the remote reservoirs and CDC valve added I'd say that's an awesome deal because adding remote reservoirs and the CDC option to the "stage 1" kit above would cost almost $2,300.

    while I was under the GX checking to see if there is any damages by dropping it on the tree trunk I realized there is so many other things hanging down between the frames that bottom of those doors will be my least of my worries . it almost look like GX wants to lose 1500 extra weight of it by blowing out of between the frames. that gas tank is as low as the old running board time to move the gas tank on top what you guy think :cheers:

    I was also surprised by the lack of clearance. My 80 on stock springs and 30mm spacers has far more clearance underneath than the GX with the airbags on high. Thanks for the pics. :clap:
