I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on a set but don't have all the installation steps clear in mind yet. I have some tools but want to find out what additional equipment (if any) that I might need. Or if I should opt out and find a panel shop somewhere who would do it for a reasonable price.
The main question I have right now is that the RRO instructions say to drill through the pinch stem from the back. I'm not sure what that means or how difficult that is going to be to do.
What was your experience with these?
Hey John, thanks for the note. After reviewing the installation instructions for the RRO super sliders and considering installing them myself, I opted to have a local 4x4 shop Texas Truck Works do the install.
The step you are referring, and several other drilling steps have proven to be challenging due to the difficult drill angles (to put it kindly) and special drill bits needed. Some who did the install recommended having some backup bits handy as they went they a few trying to drill the required mount holes.
I want to say I really like the super sliders and diamond plates. They look great on my 2016 TH and are very functional as well.
Good luck and keep the group posted!
