PostSubject: Sell sliders or get new bumper   Sun Jun 10, 2012 6:37 pm

So here is my dilemma. I am not complaining, its not a bad dilemma to be in. I won a set of Outpost Off Road sliders and free shipping in the metal-tech contest (thank you guys again for helping me). I don't need a set of sliders. I have the stock ones, and really like the accessory steps I have to go with them. Mark is an awesome guy and said he would credit me $550 towards a bumper. The problem is I am not at a place right now where I can comfortably pay the remaining amount on the bumper.

So would anyone want to buy the sliders? I am posting a link so you guys can look at them. They would have the rear plate on them as well. I would pass on some savings to you of course!

No they are 450, and then $100 in shipping. $450 seems to be the going rate for 1.75 DOM x .120 walled sliders.

I do not expect $550 for them. I would pass on some savings.

Brian, you should ditch the stock sliders and keep the upgraded ones that's my opinion. They will hold up better in the long run.

Yeah I know, but I like the steps that I have for the stock ones. Its easier for Adrienne to get in and out of. Also it will be easier for the boys to use in a few years when they are getting in and out by themselves.

I agree with installing the new ones. The Outposts have a bit of a step...plus as the boys grow, they will be climbing on everything...may as well be into the FJ.

Do you have the OEM sliders or the OEM Predator Steps? There is a big difference. The OEM sliders aren't a bad set of sliders and will work as a true slider - they just don't offer a kick out and therefore much door protection. The Predator Steps are steps, not sliders, and work well as steps but will bend when used as a slider.

With all that said - you gotta keep the women happy. If they like the step then they like the step. Kick outs provide a form of a step but it is higher than the Predator Steps.

Steve, he has the OEM tube sliders on, with the attachable side step.

Brian, understood about the sliders. Maybe someone will take the new ones off your hand then, unless you can come up with the extra funds for a new bumper or use the store credit for some HD rear lower links if they'll let you?

Ah, gotcha. That'll work fine for wheeling as long as the steps are removed before a rock is dropped on. Very Happy

I think Mitchell is going to buy them. I gave him a good price, and he needs a set to play around with us at Uwharrie.
