I believe these are 5th Gen Sliders, not sure. These are prototype sliders for the 4th Gen and I know RCI is working on a bolt-on set for the 4th Gen. I needed sliders for my trip to the Uncompahgre Wilderness this summer so Josh said these would fit, but he didn't have the bolt on fitted yet, which was fine by me. I wanted them welded on anyway.

I only live about an hour away from RCI so I just went to their shop and had Eric weld them onto my 4Runner for me.

Give Josh a call. I know they had a bunch of weld on ready to go a couple of weeks ago. He can give you the scoop on the 4th Gen sliders. I had the plating, kickout and powdercoated added for mine.

Thanks man! I'm in south Denver so I'll probably make the trip up there myself.

Sounds like a plan! There is a Colorado 4X4 Group on Facebook that has quite a few events. Check it out.

They are the cheapest skid RCI sells and that is the place most susceptible to damage. I learned the hard way. Also consider getting a Fumoto Valve. Makes it much easier than taking off the plate each time for an oil change. Give Josh a call at RCI. They are very helpful.
Thanks for the insight! Yea I actually have the LCA skids from them already, but they don't seem to be playing very nicely with my factory skid, which I am using as an excuse to upgrade my front skid haha. I might just get the front skid and see how it plays out and then get the mid skid if I am concerned about losing both (if that does happen). Thanks again!

I had problems with the LCA as well and ended up putting a bead weld on them to hold them on. Not sure if you can tell from my pictures.

Wait you mean you had problems with them staying on? I am just having problems with them rubbing with the factory skid at full wheel lock and certain droop levels.

I didn't like the way they fit so I had a bead weld added to them. I haven't had any rubbing issues, but then again I have all aftermarket skids and LCA's plus body mount chop.

Oh okey dokey then. Yea they seem to fit fine for me, but I definitely need to get at least a front skid to get rid of this rubbing. I trimmed the front skid a bit, but even then it still rubs at full lock and sounds GOD awful.
