    Please help an old fart: What are they for? And I know you are not talking about rocker arms, the things that open the valves, but...?

    Running boards. Thanks. Now that I get it, I see that your Bronco needs something in that area. I like your design.
    Migwelder05, thanks for the link. Yeah, I have floaters, but I only notice them looking at a blue sky. I can understand why somebody who is only a little more mentally impared than me might think they are the ghosts of moths or something. My screen name was meant to imply that I keep forgetting to put my hood down.

    Sliders are nothing but beefed up running boards with more purpose than stepping into the vehicle, they are used for rock crawling situations so when the lower body hits a rock the "sliders" hit the rock and slide across the rock to keep from damaging sheetmetal.

    They can also be used for a hi-lift jack point in certain situations also.
