    Got it from TEQ during the pre-order. Fitment is ok. There are small gaps on the corners. Nothing noticeable. But with any aftermarket things that is normal. I Will mess with it tomorrow. My truck is salvage so it might just be me.

    I do recommend buying hood latch/ rod clips before install. I had one break and had to hit autozone. The other one is also on its last leg

    Finally built myself a better tailgate platform. Used some thin aluminum with a rubber mat on the top and screwed into the tailgate. Now my knees feel much better getting in the truck and I can put my beers down without them falling over.

    I gotta say - they are legit and look really nice. I consider White Knuckle the benchmark after my research. I think these are likely as good - you can lift half the truck using them, and I opted for welded on with bolted tabs which is actually stronger. They can be unbolted for finish if one likes. Billy also doesn't charge enough, so if you can handle the wait...

    Shipping to me would have been $200 for 8 footers. I paid that much in gas, but I realized without a lift and rad weld skills, I wanted those guys to install them.

    I've lifted my truck from the sliders before just for kicks. I will say, I think you should have had them powder coated first. Are you taking them off to get that done? Also, I think Billy's prices are a lot more reasonable. White Knuckle raised their prices and they are a bit outrageous now.

    I don't plan to powder coat them. I know that's the go-to, but I'm more of a spray shit on there and touch up or respray as needed kinda guy for this. I'll probably POR-15/and rattle something else.

    I have been leaning towards these for awhile, nice to know they are good quality and of course the price tag on these things are great! definitely want to get some soon. how long did you wait?
