    Saturday and Sunday were spent stripping the truck, painting it all up with Dupli-Color bedliner (ROLL ON! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif), and installing the Toybox sliders... which only took 2 guys, and 2 drill bits to complete! *still weak in the arms* Check this link:

    But who cares! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif I love it! I think it looks very cool! Now I just need to get the tranny in... and I'm muddin again! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I found a very sweet mudding place locally, right behind the IL state trooper station in Elgin, IL. I was never too sure about this place being legal, but Sunday there must have been 12 trucks out there when we pulled up... my bud proptly parked his Heep in the pasty stuff, where he had to be pulled out by a K5! What irony... /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Dan, The truck looks better ever time I see it. Nice job well done. By the way, I finally got my Ford D60 HP axle from HD Dave or actually his brother Steve a while back and he did a great job for me. I have not heard anything from him since he got out of the hospital so I guess I better give him a call. Anyway you did a great job.

    Thanks Bill! Glad to hear you got your axle! Also glad to hear that Dave is outta the hospital... man... that whole thing is horrible. I feel so bad for him. Too wierd after just meeting him and his GF... they seemed very cool. Happy to hear he's getting better.

    Get some pics up! Are you coming to Moab this year with that sweet axle? I saw that housing in his warehouse when I picked up my 60 in Montreal! It was stripped all the way down to the bare cast housing!

    Looks good. How much did the sliders set you back? I need to get a set. Is that the normal mounting system? Thanks

    I think I paid somewhere around $200 for them... but I may have gotten a special... and YES, its the normal mounting system. I don't have the means to weld YET, so I had to get the bolt in type. Rock Stomper has a weld in set if that's what you are looking for...

    But check this... you really can jack the truck up by these things! They are so tough! I hi-lifted the side of the truck off the ground by the slider! Gotta love that!

    Nice job... After I do my 4" suspension lift. I want to get rid of my nerfbars and get the rock slider's. Do you have enuff of the slider sticking out to use for a step?

    Sure do have plenty room for stepping on them! I tested them my STANDING on them, and then jumping up and down! And I weigh about 220lbs! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Is there enough of the sliders hanging out to use them as a step? I don't want the weld in style. I was hoping that that was the normal mounting system, because that is trick, and that is what I want. Thanks

    So the trick to putting those on is to have someone help? lol
    I put mine on by myself and almost had a face full of steel a couple of times. By the time I got to the last couple of holes my arms were dead and it was time for a cold one!

  16. That is a roll on? When I looked at the pics I was assuming it was sprayed on. Looks great! I dig the bumpers and sliders, very nice.

    Yes, roll on. Dupli-color's bed liner kit - bought it when Trak Auto closed for $30! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif Just got to put it on now that the weather warmed up. Thanks for the kudos on the bumpers too! I think they are SO sweet! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Dude, that thing is sweet! Do you know if those sliders, or some like them are made for the '69-'72 blazers?

    Hey Dan!
    I'm going to do the duplicolor bedliner maybe this weekend if the weather holds up /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Any troubles putting it on, tips, how'd you prep the surface? How much bedliner did it take to do the outside? Did you do the inside?

    I'm replacing the floors in the plow/project truck this week and I'm going to line the inside, anything left over will go on the bumpers.
