Finally got some rock sliders from JCR. They’re the stage 3 slider. Here’s how I got them painted and installed. They sure are stout.
They were painted using 3M underbody coating, which I’ve become very fond of over the last few months. It’s a very tough coating that’s stood up to everything I’ve thrown at it so far. And the 15-20 minute dry time makes it really convenient for shooting multiple coats.
JCR Sliders come as bare metal out of the box, so the buyer is responsible for paint/coating. I’m really impressed with all the welds. Not only are they strong welds with great penetration, but they’re great looking too. Not a spot of porosity, even in the tricky spots.
Makeshift paint booth…
Second Coat Sprayed. Ready for Install:
The sliders attach just the same as most. There’s two frame mounts with four holes each that attach to the unibody rail, and a strip of flatbar that bolts to the pinch seam under the rocker.
I’ll post up some more shots of the sliders as I go through all the Moab pics. (UPDATE: I didn’t use the sliders even once in Moab…)
