I say ditch the body lift before getting those sliders mounted. From the above picture, it looks like you're not afraid of trimming some sheet metal. :D

You could just paint over the powdercoat

Well, yeah, you could if you scratch it up real good with sandpaper

When can I see the sliders?

:help: wanna clue the rest of us in with a Brand Name or something?:cool:

"XLM" is the brand name.

"DTM" stands for Direct to metal. It is a powerful bonding primer. Can be used over paint, does not have to be used on bare metal.

Both come in latex & alkyd base. Both are great bonding primers.

Both can be purchased from Sherwin Williams. "XLM" Can be purchased from most Pro paint suppliers.
