so have you decided exactly how they will mount and what price point are these going to come in at and when will they actually be released for sale?

I REALLY like the current price listed on their website.

However, I've been wondering the same things you mentioned for awhile now.

Yup... LOD makes great stuff. I've been running your sliders for several years. Mine are welded to the frame and used for their purpose. They've held up so well that I'll be purchasing your front and rear bumpers when I redeploy.

I'm sure this version of slider will be as tough and well thought out.

I've been waiting for the Rock Sliders to be released before ordering the bumpers. I am curiously waiting. I would also like to see a notch/spot for the off road jack to seat in to keep it from sliding.
Also a friend of mine ordered the rear bumper and he has been throwing a fit trying to get a hitch pin to work with the receiver. He fights to get the spring clip in and tried a locking hitch which he couldn't get to fit either. Just a thought.

The Destroyer rear hitch can be locked effortlessly, and does not require a spring clip to lock. We have attached a picture that you can show your friend!Click image for larger version

The mounts have been completed and tested at this point and are decided upon. We are working to figure out pricing and activate the listings!

what did you decide on mounts? frame or body? drill or no drill? need to know before I order another set of sliders. I can wait a month maybe a month and a half but not more than 2 months.

We decided on a combination mount system that uses the body mount points as well as several areas along the pinch seam. The body mount points are not like others companies' which still allow the slider to shift around: we have developed a system that provides a stable mount using the tub mount points, and then is reinforced by rubber-lined (to prevent metal-on-metal) contact points down several lengths of the pinch seam. This system provides more than enough strength to make a great functional and durable rock slider. We will discuss this more and show some of the testing when we release the Youtube video for these bad boys.
