Well, it's only taken about 3 weeks, but they're finally on. I would first like to thank Alan (Gearhead) for taking time out of his Sunday to help me do this. Drilling 16 holes through a frame was no easy task. Any way, the pic says it all. Dave did a great job with these slider, the full weight of the Bronco is resting on it in this pic and the back was just about to pick up. A word of advice to those about to undertake installing these. Rest up the day before, you'll need it. More pics on my SuperFord site.

Yeah, drilling those holes was definitely the worst part of that whole experience. I probably should have sported for the better bit, but I spent all the money on the sliders, a side note, I spent almost $50 bucks just in hardware... Don't worry, they will get tested out hopefully the week after next at Mudtoberfest.
Shane, as far as measurements and everything, check out my SuperFord.. What I did was measure four inches back from the bottom of the front wheel well and mounted there. This made the rear of the slider mount flush with the rear wheel well.

The passenger side was the easiest, there is just the one fuel return line to move out of the way before drilling, its held in place by a couple of plastic clips that can actually be replaced once the slider is mounted.

The driver's side is a whole other ball game. Towards the front there is a fuel hose bracket that has to bolts that come through the frame. This needs to come off.

I just removed the nuts, pushed the bolts through the hole to get it out of the way. When you are drilling here, start on the bottom and make sure you have someone to hold any of the hoses out of the (drill slowly!!)



The rear pad mount, goes through the frame near the spot where the fuel filter bracket bolts through the frame. Remove these bolts, you will be able to put one back but not until trimming the front one down. On this mount we drilled the top hole first, as there was nothing in the way of the bit. The bottom ones were a little more tricky.



One thing I have noticed is a creaking sound coming from the front, it sounds like where we remounted the fender, it only happens really bad under breaking. Any suggestions, maybe I need to put a rubber washer or something there.
