    Yay I am selling some Warn Sliders for a cherokee today and want to get some bolt on ones from either DPI or Blazen. Which ones should I get? They both come out to about the same price so does anyone have any experience with durability?

    The Blazenoffroad ones seem cheaper to me and seem beefier. They don't really show you how they mount though, probably to the body support like the DPI ones.

    Id say it all depands on how you wheel(and where). Do you care about body damage? If you do trails and want to keep the sides of your truck relatively straight Id say DPI. They stick out a little further and will help push away from trees and such. If you do rocks or anything with a big breakover Blazenoffroads are great. Either will suit both needs its just my personal opinion. All I did was buy a stick of .250 wall 2x4" cut out the rockers completely (all the way even with the floor) and weld it in. Put in some braces and your good to go.

    I really dont think that one is better than the other its mostly just personal preference.

    I checked out diy4x.com but i didnt see any sliders at all. Right now I am leaning towards the DPI ones.

    I don't think he offers any currently. However, he has 2 blazers sitting around and I'm sure he'd be more than happy to make a pair for ya if you shoot him a PM or give him a phone call.

    I am buying mine from 4xinnovatoins.com. They are a Toyota shop, but will make them to any length that you want. I needed 54" and they said no problem. Less than 200 shipped to Texas.

    I like my Blazen sliders. Easy to install and excellent customer service too.

    I got a set of the DPI Deep Woods sliders a while back, and they look awesome! I haven't had a chance to beat on them yet, but they should help keep the trees away in the tight stuff.
