    Verdict on the sliders? Vey nice. They are very impressive in person. They appear to be built to a standard perhaps above the ($$$$) Slee sliders. Took them out in the Montana wilderness and covered them in mud, ice, rain and probably multiple types of farm animal poop. They are very good so far. I was also worried about them being slippery, but they are not really that slippery, even when coated with misc debris. I think part of this more than expected sure footedness is due to the perfect angle. Out of all the sliders I have ever seen for any vehicle these are in the top tier construction wise and the price is more towards the middle to bottom. Great value, built by a true gentleman and artist. IMHO. These look MILES better than a few "Sliders" I have seen, namely the ARB "sliders" which I find amusing in there lack of any true protection.

    There is a little story about why it's crooked. I'll just say it was intentionally installed that way ;).

    Are these going to welded or attached to the sliders with bolts? Also, are these stainless or mild steel and I believe that you mentioned that you don't dimple die.

    Mild steel and they will be welded. No dimple dies from me.

    Happy customer here......Big Dog panhard rod, ComeUp 12.5 winch (mounted in Slee Blueberry) and TT sliders. It's been a pleasure working with Jason.

    Cooper LT285 75 16s..........so far so good (100 miles?). Smooth and quite on the highway - happy with the way they balanced. Excellent in the slop as well, spring mud and snow with a bit of slick rock crawling and steep loose cobble climbs. And that was with 35 lbs pressure.
