My experience with 4X Innovations was great. I asked on their FB page about the lead time shown for the sliders I wanted. Adam promptly replied that they actually had one set of them in stock. I ordered the sliders on 26Mar21 and received an email confirmation and tracking number that day. They also shipped the sliders that day and they arrived on 31Mar21. Superb quality and the shipping from Wisconsin to Metro Atlanta was only ~$70 via FedEx Ground. I considered Shrockworks until I saw their shipping is $265 from Houston. The fact that Shrockworks' product comes assembled obviously makes a difference but the total cost including assembly and installation by a local welder (Cory Turner, he's great if you're in ATL) was still about $200 less.

The process: I ordered bare metal and took the sliders & parts to Cory, who worked out the fit and assembled the sliders. I brought them home, primed with self-etching primer, then painted them with the same Rustoleum Black Stainless Steel Metallic paint I used on my roof rack. Brought them back to Cory who cleaned the frame area, welded them on, then painted everything around the welds. Pics:
