Got my Slee sliders today. I anxiously waited for a week, checking the tracker # about 10 times a day. I'll slap those puppy's up after work today :bounce: :bounce2: :bounce: :bounce2:

I cut open the packaging and checked them out. Excellent quality workmanship and they look like they will be easy to install, espcially since I have forklifts available here it will be a 1 man job.

Thanks to Slee Offroad, Adrian for taking my order and Christo for providing such a good product. Now I can stop putting dents in my rocker panels.:cheers:

If the install on yours is anything like what I went through when installing the wife's step sliders a couple weeks ago...you shouldn't have any problems at all.

I was able to mount mine by myself, but it would be helpful to have another set of hands available.

A couple boxes or jack stands to support the sliders during the install will come in handy.

On the driver's side slider install...make sure you route the U-bolt BETWEEN the brake lines and the frame. I had to wedge a large screwdriver blade between the lines and the frame to make room for the u-bolts.

Other than that...install is pretty much a no brainer. Good instructions.

Have fun!

watch for contact with the outrigger and the transmission crossmember on the passenger side. I had to grind my crossmember and some have had some vibrations from that also.

Take a straight edge and place it vertically on the frame and then pass it over that spot to check your clearances.

Yep, me too. Forgot about that.

I first had the crossmember easily cleared, but found that the outrigger came in contact with the catalytic converter. This made for a nasty rattle and vibration during start up and accelleration.

I had to loosen everything and drop the front portion of the slider down a bit. This caused the foot of the plate that bolts to the frame to contact the cross member. I had to grind a little of the cross member away to get the outrigger low enough to clear the cat.

Mine are a little different around the cats than yours. I have a 94, side by side cats. I'll find out in a few hours how it fits up.:cheers:

I'll try to make it. If I'm goin' to be here all night, I might as well take a break to see something fun.
