I got the sliders from Can Am when I bought my Maverick. They were around $160 after discount I believe. they saved my machine some damage several times in Moab this last May. Need to get some for the Max once I get it but nobody has any accessories for that thing yet.

I bought the regular one from CanAm. I haven't put them on yet because it looks like you have to drill a hole in the frame. Do you have to drill a hole in the frame?

image.jpg No, the hole is there. You can see it from underneath. they are like 19" apart. Drill a small hole back through toward the outside, use a flashlight to see how centered you are and waller it with a die grinder to achieve center. Then you can use the hole saw to plunge into the plastic. I didn't do that. I found center and offered up the bar for fittment, tightened, used a scribe to lightly mark the outer hole, removed and used my die grinder with a blunt carbide burr to create the hole. Now when I offer up the bars, they will hang there with no bolts because the tolerance is super tight, then install bolts with blue loctite and finalize, like I said "challenging" to do it right otherwise the hole will be a wee bit big and mud will hang around the bar hole, hope this helps

Now that I think about it you could just forget about the big hole and sandwich the bar, plastic and frame if you wanted but the bolt might have less threads

The Commander sliders are different from the maverick's. Is that what you're possibly looking at. Mannders come up a lot higher in the back.

This helps! I guess I will put mine on. Thanks Max
