Do they work with Rubi rails? If not, they don't quite hide the pinch seam do they ?

We think ACE makes theirs work with the Rubi rails? We prefer to just paint the pinch seam black, save the weight, and make the Craigslist money from the Rubi rails. At this point, you could probably sell the rails for near the price of our sliders.

We'll end up painting our pinch seams black on this Jeep, but here is a quick photoshop.

I’m curious - what did you end up using for painting that pinch seam? Some bed liner spray? Looking to do exactly this (with your sliders that I need to order)!

That photo was Photoshopped, but we would use a satin or semi-gloss black Rustoleum. After you setup a masking tape line, rub a scotch bright pad over the pinch weld paint a few times, then wipe it down with some rubbing alcohol or paint thinner, then do a couple coats of spray paint.

Took some time a couple of weeks back to mask off and paint that pinch seam, definitely the right call. Looks great with the rails installed now. Had some issues with powder coating damaged in shipping, but ended up using the same paint to touch those areas up and will keep an eye open to make sure it doesn’t flake off further.

They look great! Did you reach out to us about the powder coat? Very sorry to hear about the shipping damage, we try to mitigate that in packaging, but they get tossed around a lot in transit sometimes.

I did, yep. Sounds like they're usually zip tied together, but mine were not, so they were rubbing against each other and banged around a bit in the box.
