Default Slider Question

How hard is it to turn weld on sliders into bolt on sliders? I assume I need to weld on plates, is that good enough?

Thanks

Yea that and some gussets. I'd just reccomend looking at the bolt on types. And copy that mounting design. Why do you want to remove a perfectlly good slider that's already welded on ? Unless you damaged them at Moab and need new ones

Nah, Off Road Solutions has a pair of weld on but I'd prefer bolt on. So I figured I find a way to bolt them on. I'll check out a few bolt on and copy those. Thanks

That's odd, I didn't think ORS was in business anymore. Or is it just that Mike has moved on?

Heck maybe they aren't. That might explain the lack of reply on my emails. The search goes on I guess.

Nakman, your sliders are bolt on correct?

Yeah mine are, both trucks. and you are welcome to stare at them for extended periods of time.. hey maybe you should buy a tube bender and a chop saw, I've already got a couple angle grinders, then we can bribe someone into teaching us how to use my welder..
