Yeah, the finish is really nice on the RH rails but it’s not that textured and can be slippery if wet. Plus, this keeps the unnecessary scratches from dirt/rocks in the shoes from being ground into the finish. They are rock sliders, they are supposed to take abuse but I don’t want to cause it just getting in/out regularly. More importantly, I don’t want someone slipping and getting hurt.Thanks - great pics. I see you added some grip tape. Was planning on doing the same. Putting in my order right now though I am getting angled down.
