I believe both kevin and Greg run them. Both weld on. They look awesome that for sure and looks like they hold up great. Good price point as well. 

I would have bought them but being a 2 door I haven’t used my stock rubicon sliders much as it is.

That’s what I’m thinking of getting. I’d get the EVO’s just to be different but they are $100.00 more for the exact same thing.

I found some made by Ace Engineering.

They are about $40 cheaper, weld on, and they come powder coated.

Best of all they look different than Kevin and Greg’s sliders.

We may have a winner…

From experience, the VKS ones can take a beating!

How did you guys finish your VKS sliders? Powder coat? Rattle can?

Greg had his powder coated. I rattle canned mine with satin black. I plan to go over them again with textured black.

I was just curious.

Their email communication sucks.

First I get a “Thanks for your order”,

Then just over a week later I get “Your order is complete”.  

Huh? I don’t think it costs any more money to add a few extra words to an email. Lol

I’m just hoping that second email should have read “Your ITEMS are completed.”

Because “Order Completed” means they were delivered, and I ain’t got no sliders…

It could also mean the order was processed.

That is the exact same day I ordered my set. I guess it’s a race to see which one of us gets their’s first.

That’s true too. Another example of how adding just a few more words to the email could clear up any confusion and keep the purchaser informed.

I just got a notification from “My UPS” and I have a package being delivered from VKS today. So, apparently “Order Complete” means order has shipped cool
