Almost everyone keeps telling me to get something other than the two I plan to choose from?

And I understand a lot of the arguments. But Jim is back logged. Irbis are weld on. Honestly I'd get the Slee Steps but the lack of cat protection? Murphy and his laws will be all over me if I don't go with my gut instinct there.

So I'm still leaning towards the MT due to the lighter weight and more air flow to the cats than the HQ appear to have.

Does anyone in the club have a set of HQ's?

Hard to tell we like to support the local folks huh?

I went through the same thing when I was choosing sliders and narrowed it down to between Slee's and MTs sliders. In the end I chose the MTs because of the look, the cat guard, the options they've built into them, etc. I like the power coat of the Slee's better but oh well. Price wise they are about the same once you factor in shipping vs. taxes and what not.

I had a little remorse about not buying local but 95% of the other stuff on my rig was locally bought, and most of that from Christo. I like to believe I did my part last spring helping to keep him in business

I have the Hanna's they are well built heavy duty sliders. There were not as many choices when I purchased mine, If I were to buy today I would go with the
Slee stepsliders for many of the reasons listed all ready.You wont go wrong with any of the sliders mentioned so far. Availability may be the driving factor if you need them soon.

Corbet here's your answer:

Buy the Slee Slider steps and give them to me. I'll give you my 1.5 yoear-old SROR Sliders with cat protection and charcoal powder coat plus $300 and your problem is solved. I have $580 plus the $130 from Mile High powder coat into them. They've only been off road twice and the only slight scrape on them is on the cat skids from an obstacle on the Middle Fork up from Tiger Road

BTW: my Boxer, Taz, has been in and out of the rig twice daily for the time I've had the sliders, and no caught paws.

Well a little later than originally quoted but in time for CM08 and that's all that really mattered to me. Now to install them...
