I just wanted to give Adam at 4XInnovations some props for a quality product at a reasonable price.

I installed his bolt-on 80 series sliders on my LX this weekend, and they fit like like a glove. I was able to do the install by myself with the help of a couple of jack stands in a couple of hours.

Here are some pics of them installed. I found some rattle can paint at Walmart that is fairly close to the color of my body mouldings to help blend them into the rig.

They look great. IIRC they seem like a really affordable option.

Umm... Nothing. :eek: One of these days I need to get that taken care of... It's not to bad to drive. It will get a little darty if I hit just the right bump, but I've driven vehicles a lot worse handling from the factory.

They look great! I had used some of 4x's weld together sliders on my old 80. They worked like a charm for a fraction of the price of production sliders.

They sure look great. Any pictures on the anchor points where and how they are bolted on/welded to the frame?

Am planning a mod for sliders where the OEM aluminum stepboard could sit on..... Any ideas on how to do this, or has anyone done this before? TIA

These are bolt on. The drivers side is clamped to the frame rail with plates and formed u-brackets. The passenger side is bolted to OEM weld-nuts on the frame in the front and u-brackets are in the rear. I didn't take any underneath pics, but Adam has pics on his site.

The paint is Krylon or Rustoleum rattle can in a "hammered" finish. If anyone is interested I can get the exact brand and paint color. I actually tried 2 shades, but the 1st one was too gold for my taste.

Interesting. Their website makes it look like the sliders have more of an upward angle.
Ahh... I forgot to mention that. Normally they are angled to follow the conour of the rockers, but I requested mine to be built flat more like a step for a couple of reasons. I have vertically challenged riders that complain about the step in height, and hopefully it will keep those pesky midwestern trees away from body panels.

I have these as well and they work out awesome. I hit them with some Duplicolor Primer and Flat Black Enamel. Installed in about 2 hours, working solo. I did replace the supplied nuts with nylock fasteners.

Looks like 95+ years. Would it be to hard for a bolt on application for a 94?

They look great. Exactly the design/look I will be going for when $$ is avail.

Sven, thanks for the pics! I like how you matched the color of your rig with the paint.

For those of you who asked, here's some pictures of the underside. I have pretty flexible manufacturing on these so I can build them to fit your needs.:smokin:

I really like the wrap around mounts and the cat protection But the big openings between are kinda large .
I would get a big O rock to wedge in one of those voids and be stuck. It looks like it could be remedied by throwing some more tube or some dimpled plate at it .
