9. The long wheelbase means roughly three blocks' worth of rocker panel open to trail damage, so we began looking for some sliders. Unfortunately no one was making off-the-shelf pieces so we contacted Shaffer's Off-Road outside Reno, Nevada, to build a custom set. Mounting the sliders isn't that hard, but make sure they stick out past the body of your truck and make sure they are made of thick enough material that they can take a hit. The Shaffer's units weld directly to the frame and are built strong enough that Hi-Lifting the Sled off of them isn't a problem. They also make a great step for getting into the cab or rear bedside toolboxes.
