I have SROR's and they were cost-effective, have full cat protection, and support local business. Jim will make them however you want them, too.

I noticed Jim isn't taking orders because he's backlogged:

From his website:

"SROR will not be taking any new orders due to my existing backlog. It is unfair to you, as a customer to place an order that we would not be able to give you a delivery date. It will probably be April or May before things get back in line.

We are very sorry for the inconvienence and thank you for your continued support!

Jim "

I have the MT sliders on my 80 and they are very nice. My kids, 4 and 6 haven't had any issues with them yet. And they get in/out of my rig 5-6 days a week for the last month.

It's a really cool design and I did a little bit of testing and they worked I like the mounting tabs for lights in them...pretty bling.

That being said, I don't think you can go wrong with SROR, Slee, Irbis, Hanna etc...

Jeff what about adding some skate board grip tape to the tread areas? I have seen it done on a lot of rigs, cheap, easy to apply, and they will wear well.

Drew,

That will be done this summer...I didn't get the sliders on until March/April '07 so this is the first winter with them. 95% of the time they are fine but when they get ice on them watch out - I'm not sure having the skate board grip tape on there, under the ice, will do that much good really but it is worth a shot. So far I've had only one instance when my 4 yr old got her foot stuck. Now I just make sure we help her out just in case to avoid any problems. She is our "clutzy" child...she'll probably grow up to be a ballerina

I had skate grip tape on the top of mine and it worked OK. This fall I herculined the lower portion of my truck, and put herculiner on the top of my sliders where the grip tape was. I think that works even better, lots of snow and ice but I haven't been slipping. If you do it this way make sure you don't put it on the bottom or sides of the sliders where it is supposed to "slide" over the rocks. I read some posts where people lined their whole slider and they could no longer slide.

That's another reason I love christo's step sliders. That powder coat grip is awesome.
