Default Sliders for KDSS Model

I know this has been discussed but I am not finding a succinct answer.

I have a 2006 GX470 with KDSS and a 2.5" OME suspension kit that replaced the air suspension.

I am interested in putting on some sliders but I know the only bolt on ones offered do not fit the KDSS models. I have seen some people get them welded on but:

how much should that cost to have done? and are any modifications needed to the kdss, frame, besides the welding of the sliders to the frame?

Is the kdss even still relevant with out the stock suspension?

Anyone know a good shop in Denver that could help make this happen??

Nothing, been frustrating, contacting local fabrication shops to see if someone can weld something on, but been getting a weak response.

Have you looked into 5th Gen 4Runner sliders that have KDSS?

You may be able to direct or quickly adapt them to fit on the GX.

talking with metal tech about the ones they offer for the non kdss vehicles they have told me its not to big of a job to make them fit on ours its just a relocation of a mounting bracket so i think im going to buy a set from them and give it a go

Keep me posted, When they say its a relocation of a mounting bracket, does that mean that you will be using a fabricator to remove and re-weld it?

For a simple fabricator with clean welds, removing and moving the support leg should be a quick and easy task

Pardon my ignorance, but wouldn't the KDSS be no-op as soon as you lift it?
