    So Daystar rock sliders should be here Friday next week. Beyond needing to get a powered riveter, any other tips or tricks I should know prior to trying to install? Anything I should buy at the dealer like clips or other small, breakable parts?

    Anything I should do to the rocksliders or to the Renegade?

    I'm planning on getting some cleco fasteners, so I can temporarily install the rock sliders, then pull them off to paint all the drilled holes, before installing permanently.

    Good luck with your install. The only thing that stood out to me in reading threads (I have never installed them) is with the drilling of the holes. The drilling can take a bit of time and wear out drill bits.

    Pick up some cobalt drill bits and cutting fluid, they worked really well. I broke one at the beginning of the second slider so get 2 or 3 to be safe!

    Pneumatic rivet gun is a definite plus!

    Other than that it was a pretty straightforward install.
