sliders...?

Post by piratex on 5/2/2012, 9:29 am

I'm going to be getting a body lift along with doing a titan swap so I can get some more flex som I'm thinking its probably time for me to think about sliders since I'm still rocking the stock style side rails and I just know that stock rails are gunna get crushed here soon

You can think about sliders, but until you do the body lift, you probably don't want to put them on yet! You'll have a silly gap between them and the body if you do them before the body lift.

Then you're taking away some of the benefits of the body lift. ?????

I think he wasnts the body lit for tire clearance not body clearance. I agree with you though frank why add a bar where you just moved a body from. The more clearance the better you clean things. Make you wife Jump. Plus its not like you are going that large with it. My wife climbs in my 6.5 lifted jeep. Which also is not much.

Personally, I think just setting them out further (say, a few inches to help as a step) from the body will be sufficient as a step to assist with getting in the truck. With what you have said about the Titan swap it also doesn't sound like it will be an issue with the wider stance that you will be getting.

Whats your price range and are you looking for someone local to fab your sliders?

A/C has a nice set for $450. https://www.4x4parts.com/nissan/pathfinder-black-rock-sliders-p-5367.html

Thats either hefty or shrock brand which both are extremely backordered.

Those are all the slider options availble currently unless I have a local fab do them
