    Evo Slider Question

    Can the Evo sliders be bolted on? I know and understand welding in stronger but at the rate I change my mind I would prefer to bolt on if possible. Has anyone bolted their slider on rather then weld?

    No. If you want bolt on buy LOD.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm not a fan anything design-wise LOD makes, just don't like their look.

    I don't think the tabs on their sliders are large enough to put bolts through. Also, they don't have the extra bracketry that would be needed to support being bolted on.

    Look at LoD, Rock Hard (I think), or Poison Spyder for bolt-on options. I'm personally very happy with the looks and performance of my Poison Spyder bolt-ons.

    Same here. I'm running the PS Brawler Rockers. They are a boat side style compared to EVO's

    I have Poison Spyder bolt on as well. They have really taken a beating and are holding up well.
    The thing I like about EVO's is the stick out just a bit further... a bit more protection and a little bit of a step

    Having welding my EVOs on... I could see maybe making custom larger plates that bolt to the frames face & bottom (L-shape) ... and then welding the sliders to that.

    I went through a lot of back and forth when I chose the Rocker Knockers because I wanted a step for my wife but was afraid of anything body mounted. How have yours been holding up?

    I have liked the EVOs from day one just for some reason thought there would be a bolt on version or a way to bolt them on.

    I will give PS a look.

    Check out n-fab rock rails and detachable steps. I made this setup before I saw they sell it.
