I love the MetalCloak flip steps, but they do attach to the body.

Great as a step and if things are going to be close on the trail, the step portion can be removed easily and stored in the back. The slider portion is much stronger than stock.

Blue painters tape, large plastic floor coverings, spray can bed liner and a couple hours is all it took to deal with pinch seam before installing my LOD sliders. Sorry, on wives iPad no pics but I think you get the idea.
Blends away now.

I used a can of spray on bed liner to give it a textured and tougher coat. I didn't keep the can but it was whatever they had at Home Depot and I'd guess Rustoleum brand if they make. Here's a pic of the finished look with painted seam and LOD rock rail. If you wheel and plan on using the rails, the LOD have done their job for me real well. They attach direct to the frame so very rigid.
