Just fitted a set of sliders from Buds Customs in QLD. Buddy was a pleasure to deal with. Very happy with the product and his service.

Tip - Before jumping into the fitment, note there are 3 different size brackets on each side. I tried to wrestle one side into place before noticing. Once I had them in the right spot they were easy to fit.

Long bracket - Front
Short bracket - Middle
Medium bracket - Rear

G'day Tornado_ALIVE,

I gotta ask how are the sliders and winch going? Have you given 'em both a good workout yet and if you don't mind my asking, how much did the Buds sliders set you back?

Cheers mate :truck: :sheep:

Lol..... Then you would hate the inside of my house. Brown and beige. I must be getting old, next will be beige cardigans. Don't worry, when I hit my mid life crisis, everything will be red :)

Sliders were around $900 from memory. Clamped around the chassis in 3 points each side. No drilling and Rok solid. Ties in well with the Xrox bar as well. :) Haven't been off road for a long time and put less than 5000km on in the last year due to our newborn. Looking at a few trips in the next few months and hope to give them a real work out.

That's come up really tidy mate, very smart looking rig and I bet it's super comfy too. Any plans to do a black rear bar? Would look sweet and be a lot stronger than the lonely chrome one amongst all that other black steel.
