    Well, after searching and reading every post I could find on sliders I have a question. Most that I have seen or read about are either attached to the frame or are replacements for the existing rocker. Some were attached to both the body and the frame, not something I agree with but “to each his own"

    The question I have is could you simply stitch weld 1 or 2 Pcs of tube or even solid rod to the existing rocker? I would think this would transfer the load over a greater area and prevent the rocker from collapsing? I guess it would be similar to what they do on Jeeps….attached directly to the body at multiple points.

    I realize there is a substantial weight difference between Jeeps and our blazers but I’m curious if anyone has given this method any thought?

    I’m probably way off base, but I thought I would ask. :dunno:

    There's a product review that I read about and used as a guideline for attaching my sliders. The only thing I would have done different is use 2x4 instead of 2x3.

    Click --> 4x4 Armor Rock Sliders

    So far I haven't had much of a chance to try them out. Mine are 1/4" wall. I have come done hard on one side once and I can't see any damage.
