    Pics??

    Mine are a set of 2bad's sliders. They bolt directly to the body tub. I have beat on them fairly hard and are holding up well.

    This is a pic of the initial fitting (more pics on the other computer but I am kinda indisposed right now..)

    they are a bit more used now, I also supported the rear section better by tying it into the tub better.

    I'll probably be able to get the other pics tomorrow..
