Re: All-Pro Slider Group Buy

Hello all,
I just wanted to point out how tough the All Pro Heavy Duty Apex sliders are, based on a hit and run experience I had. I never really thought about passing this on until till I saw the latest GB post.

About a year and a half ago, I was traveling home from work, I came up behind a dark green Cadillac Catera (smaller Caddy made in Germany) that was stopped at a traffic light. This was a four lane secondary road and we were on the left lane. The light turned green and this car immediately drifted over into the right lane then back into my lane, the right lane again and over into the oncoming traffic lane. Luckily he managed to correct and get back into the left lane. Naturally, after observing this, I immediately slowed down and so did the 2 cars behind me. Then he would slow down and then speed up. Obviously drunk or high on something. Any way this went on for about a mile and by then I was getting irritated. When he slowed down to a crawl I gunned it and started passing him on the right lane, while I'm passing him, he speeds up and starts drifting into my lane, I have no where to go, trees to the right and his car to left, then bam, he hits me. I feel a couple solid bumps and hear a loud crunch. Right when he hits me I put on the brakes and he speeds off like nothing happened. I follow him and he makes a dash onto the freeway, all the while I'm honking my horn and waving at him. I call 911 and tell them my story and they advise me to get his license plate, which I do, pull off the freeway, give them my location and an Officer will meet me.

So I get out and I'm expecting bent wheels, a deep gash or two on the doors and mangled sliders. To my surprise, there were no cracks, no dents, no bending, nothing wrong other than a little scrape and paint missing on the kickout. I was so sure there was going to be a lot of damage based on what the side of his car looked like. I wish I could of taken a picture of his car. The Apex sliders deeply creased and mangled the side of his front and rear doors and the middle frame below the B pillar. I think the bumps, lurch or jerk I felt was the kickout hitting his middle frame and his rear tire while I was braking. I know luck had a bit part in this as he came in perfectly parallel to my FJ and I avoided any damage. What's really important is the Apex sliders can handle not only trail damage but this type of damage too. Got to love it! "Who's your Daddy, caddy!"

Aloha, J.

The late, great Colonel Jeff Cooper postulated four cardinal rules of gun safety. 1) All guns are always loaded, and treated as such. 2) Never allow the muzzle to point at anything you are not prepared to see destroyed. 3) Do not let your finger enter the trigger guard unless and until you are in the very act of intentionally firing the weapon. 4) Be certain of your target.

Re: All-Pro Slider Group Buy

My Apex Sliders minus the fill plates (on request), arrived today and they are beauties!! I can't wait to get them coated and mounted up!

A very sincere thank you to the folks over at All-Pro for this solid deal. Seamless and easy. Would gladly do it again.

Now, *cough cough* about that Roof Rack *cough cough*.
