Lola with a "bumper monkey"
I am pretty sure I am going to go with the white knuckle sliders, thank you for posting these pictures. The ones on their site are bad to the point they aren't helping me see or understand how they really look.White Knuckle rock sliders
Look what the FedEx guy delivered to my house at 8:30 this morning!
These babies came in a 135lb box. The box survived the trip fairly well, only taking a slight beating in a few spots. There were a few small scuffs in the coating, but nothing major really. I've just gotta say, these are ridiculously well made. The bends are prefect and the welding is beautiful. The coating is strong and even. I'm very happy with them all told. They look fantastic, and are tougher than hell.
I immediately went to installing them. They use many factory holes, but you have to drill 12 holes and use thread cutting bolts for the full install. I got mine mostly mounted up, then tightened a bunch of the hardware down. I had to mark a bunch of holes and then remove the slider again so I could drill them properly. It takes time but is a fairly simple process. It's pretty straightforward, and I only ran into a couple little problems, which were more my fault than theirs.
Anyway, once they were on, they looked amazing!
I cannot stress enough how well made these things are.
And I have to say, opening the door and looking down to see this is a very comforting feeling
Super impressed with these things and super excited about them. I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you're looking for sliders, go with White Knuckle.
I can't believe this is my truck.
Yes, they absolutely have enough room to function as a step, especially the kickout in the rear. Super useful as a step.I am pretty sure I am going to go with the white knuckle sliders, thank you for posting these pictures.

I was going to just order them flat because I want them more for a step to help heft the oz up and down off the roof, but after looking at your pictures it seems like they stick out far enough to give you something to stand on even with the upward angle, is that correct?
We are definitely going to do a trip when i get back full-time!!At the beginning of the summer, we had begun to formulate plans to travel to Colorado to attend my cousin's wedding. We decided to use it as a thin excuse to explore the state and check out one of the most amazing overland destinations in the country. Planning began very early to hit some historic sights along the way, drive the majority of the COBDR, and end up in Denver for the wedding.
To prepare for the long trip, I changed a few things about the truck. I added an LED light strip in the bed, seat covers, a few more storage solutions, and a roof bag to help carry stuff. The day quickly approached and we set off after work and into the night.
We camped in Wyoming's Wind River Canyon before slamming through Wyoming, which was miserable.
We drove on through northern Colorado and racked up the miles. By the end of the day we made it to Grand Junction and checked out the downtown area before finding a place to camp at Colorado National Monument. The next day, we took the time to see the sights and enjoy the landscape.
Next was heading south towards Cortez.
Thanks! Yeah it's been a while. I don't know why I've been gone so long, just had a lot going on I guess.Welcome back to the land of the living good to see you're doing all right
Hell yeah! I'm actually up closer to you now, with my folks in Seeley.We are definitely going to do a trip when i get back full-time!!
