I rolled the side edges to give it a bit of rigidity and secured it to two existing & unused threaded holes after cutting a notch for it to slide under the Talons Garage skidplate. I secured it to the back crossmember with a bolt, fender washers and a lock nut. Then I used a few self tapping screws to hold it tight to the frame-

Installed a Spiker ULTIMATE Lift Hood Strut Kit today

Easy install if you have the tools.

Opening & closing is how it should be- easy, effortless and predictable.

Before & after pics.

I ordered a set of 4XInnovations DOM round tube rock sliders and they arrived today, 2 days after ordering

They are on sale right now and if you are military or a Veteran you can get an additional discount, just call Adam to get the code.

After I unpacked them I put them up next to 4Runner to see how much I'd have to shorten them. I knew ahead of time that I would need to do this in order to have them fit between the front and rear mud flaps after discussing this with Adam at 4X.

It looks like between 5 & 6 inches will have to be removed -

To know for sure I plan on removing the rear flap and measuring the slider against a forward edge mark for the flap. I'll remove a section in the middle and then weld them back together.

I got a fresh bottle of gas this morning for the Miller Millermatic 211 and broke out the steel chop saw, should be a fun project -

Yesterday I got most of the work done on the 4XInnovations rock sliders.

I had to remove 4.25 inches from the length to have them fit between the OEM flares/flaps.

I used a pair of free (remember back when Harbor Freight always had free items?) magnetic tool bars to keep the rails aligned while I tacked them.

I probably should have sleeved the joints but didn't have the material.

Today I have to finish cleaning up the welds and paint the sliders. I'll prime and paint them with satin Rustoleum, easy to apply and touch up.

Gotta give you credit for putting in the work to make those fit how you want. I would no longer have mud flaps, but I'm a lot lazier than you are!

I like the integrated (and hard to find) mud flaps that go with the flares. They will be in danger in serious off roading situations but I'm not planning on doing too much of that.

This morning I cleaned up a few welds and did a few touch ups, then cleaned the sliders with brake cleaner and painted.

1 coat of rusty metal primer and then 2 coats of satin black Rustoleum.

In the garage right now curing, I'll probably leave them alone for a few days before welding them to the frame -

Yesterday I armed the Viper alarm with my dog inside and within a few minutes she set it off...I suspect that her dog tags clinking set off the Directed 506T audio/glass breakage detector.

I looked at the manual and can't find a way to turn the sensor off so I'll be installing a toggle switch to manually disable the sensor.

Slider in place, about to weld it to the frame -
