Nice deal! Are those the Shrockworks rock sliders? I ordered from them and should be delivered next week.

Yes there build great ..They do a nice job on there products compared to other companies
Looks like you also have the rokblokz mud flaps. I had mine installed a few months ago and it works perfect with the rubi rails cutout in the front mud flaps. Not sure if I'll have to fill that cutout with the new sliders. Wish I had the sliders installed first.

No cutout in mine .If I was you I’d order a set of fronts without them

Sorry that I have to bother you with some installation issues of the Shrickworks sliders. I spent nearly all day to mess up with the fitment of the driver front side and passenger front side. I had to enlarge the opening of both the side and bottom holes but still couldn’t slide both into the front side. That 90 degree angled bracket just doesn’t fit the inside of the frame tube. And I could touch some reenforced welded metal plates inside. Not sure if this is because 392 has beefed up frame.

Did you have such issue?

Yes I pull front frame plate in frame.And used the threaded top part faster plate one bracket to holdup slider.And put a nut on it.And for bottom hole .I put a nut with a lock washer throw frame hole and put bolt up throw and tighten it thru frame hole.I couldn’t catch lower bracket nut ether.If I remember right I used two flat head screwdrivers thru frame hole to caught and hold nut to tighten it

Thank you for the quick reply! I appreciate it! I’m trying to understand your solution. Did you cut the angled bracket into two pieces and only used the vertical piece with welded screw? The bottom one, sounds like you didn’t use the other piece (if you cut the original bracket into two) and just used separate nut fished into the frame to secure the bottom bolt.

No I didn’t cut it left whole .When I tighten it it went to top of inside top of frame .Yes used a separate nut and lock washers in bottom part of frame and fisher it thru hole in front of we’re bottom bolt goes up thru lower bracket.Used my finger to get nut above hole..While holding pressure on it..Then got bolt started to thread

Oh? So you didn’t try to align (not possible in my case) the bottom welded nut of the bracket. Instead, you used a separate nut/washer inside the frame. Does this mean the inside bracket bottom is somewhat not holding? Because it has to move to the side or even up to give room to that separate nut?

You must be using that long and bigger hole to insert that new nut/washer at bottom next to the round hole that is supposed to be aligned with the inside bracket.

Thanks man for the insight! I was able to finish the install using the same approach! I may change to longer bolts for the bottom because I could feel the bolt is just about to flush with the top of inside nut. I want couple more threads over the nut.
