OK... @ what price would you say..."oK...I'll buy that right now!"... aka... for sliders...these are for 95-97 80's only @ the moment... just curious... there is a true need I feel for sliders on the East Coast side ... something that is feasable for those with limited means... and no bashing for taking biz away from people on the west side... $200 for shipping will keep me from ordering such stuff... all I'm looking for is a price interest at this time...thanks for you time... and yes, bolt one, powdered, etc... and please, be realistic... trying to keep this one serious... ( ha...lol...now I'm psuhing it!)

I'm not sure what price (500-600)....I know I would like slee or hanna's but ~$800 + shipping is more than I want to pay (my passenger side is already toast). Of course would love to volunteer as guinee pig if you could make me a deal.

I would buy a solid set of sliders for the 80 that were bolt on and powdercoated for $500 or less without any hesitation. Let me know if this gets in the works.

If these sliders were bolt on and comes with a combination of square/round tubes for less than 500 bucks plus shipping, I would jump on them without hesitation.

The ones from Marlin can easily be welded too...

Though the shipping from out West would make it rather cost prohibitive for me.

$500-600 max including shipping. This might not be feasible though. I guess I could go a bit higher--maybe $700 including shipping.

Let's see where this goes. I'm interested.

I bet you could get Marlins for less than 600 shipped.
I got some sliders shipped from Allpoo for my old tacoma for like 50 bucks.
Beno..You should just take orders from now until S & T, charge 50 bucks and bring them back for everyone.

Hmmm...interesting idea...but if I did that, I might as well set myself up with some Hanna's or some Slee's...I can always justify a detour.

Thanks y'all so far...

Thanks for the feedback... things are getting researched as I type... I hope I can get something to work... I'm just interested in making something accessible for others & being able to cover some fab costs... will update as things progress...which will be sooner than later... I hope for an early "Christmas"... ( not to offend any other deniminations) -T

Wisdom...yes...

Christo has that, I assure this... but my goal here is not to be shop & make a bunch of cash...everyone talks about how houses & cars are cheaper (significantly sometimes) depending on demographics... well this is also very true for metal fab... jut gotta find the right area & guy... see, I won't have any overheard (shop, storage issues, employees, etc...) so yes... selling them cheap is the idea... this is mainly for the east coast folk ya know...
