Those look super flimsy compared to my RCI's. Honestly those look like they try to be a happy medium, but fail on both counts.
They are too close to use as a real step and too poorly constructed to be useful in protecting your body. Those look like they are made for mall crawling at an attractive price point, more than anything.

Well aren't you just a ray of sunshine? Are those real beadlocks I see on your rig?

Perfect picture.

I know this seems like its not useful as a "step" but this is almost exactly what I want. I rock climb so that is plenty to stand on. I just needed something help while I strap down my kayak. This will be easier than standing on the wheel when I try to access the front of the rack.

I wont be using it as a step to get into the vehicle.

These rock rails should have been available in 2010! When I purchased our 2007 FJ in 06’ They had optional rock rails rather than running boards. I took delivery with them installed. They were plenty sturdy and held up the FJ with a hi-lift jack extension. They took plenty of abuse and never bent. Also if you open the doors there’s plenty of room to stand on them for securing a load on the roof.

Nope. But this thread isn't about that now is it? It's about opinions on a specific set of sliders. If you would like to talk about my opnion on those sliders, I'd be happy to...or you can comment on my sunshiny nature...

I'm mostly just trying to make myself feel better for buying an aftermarket set for $900, but... these don't really look like sliders to me. They don't have nearly as many mounting points on the frame as the aftermarket units. I see that Toyota refers to them as "rails" instead of "sliders".

My guess is these will protect the rockers from mild impacts... but you probably can't expect to pivot on these things with half the weight of the car on it. That's what I'm telling myself anyway!

They're basically the same product that Toyota sold for the FJ Cruiser. They seemed to hold up okay on those.

I think mine look pretty light duty as well:


But I have abused the shit out of them and they've held up without issue other than that they both now have a bit of a curve to them and the rear lower sides are starting to get worn down - metal being slowly carved away over time. Just had mine sand blasted and re-painted after 6 years and you can see the wear on the lower sides.

The big issue I think they'll have is that they do lack coverage that you get with some other aftermarket ones. I found that my very tight fitting ones needed an extra bump out near the back to keep the rear quarters off the rocks in more technical terrain. I made a secondary bolt on bump out for when I'm headed for the rocks. Trip Report; Rubicon 2018 (TLCA Rubithon)

Overall this is what the market needs. It'll provide some price competition to bring down prices on the other sets.

I don't think you went wrong with HD aftermarket sliders if you're going to spend time playing in the rocks. I think these are probably great for most people that need infrequent protection. I don't think they're probably the right choice for hardcore use.

Your set for the FJ look a lot more heavy duty than the ones shown in the first page of this thread. Look at the difference in the mounting points as well as the cross members connecting the mount to the main tubes.

But I agree that this is what the market needs. Honestly, I probably would've been totally fine with this Toyota set for now. But I like my mods to be future-proof. So I got myself as set of DOM sliders!

I think a good analogy might be that these are the rock slider equivalent of OEM skid plates as compared to aftermarket ones. They work for most people most of the time. But they're not really the same thing as a dedicated aftermarket set for the more extreme use situations.

Just wait - next think we know the Rav4 will come with heavy duty sliders and skids... lol.

How are these holding up for you guys? How do you like em so far?

Curious to know if you guys are utilizing these as steps (mainly for little ones, partners, wives, grandparents.... aka the shorter people)

Any chance you could snap a picture of how much room there is as a step with a door open? Wondering if little feet could step up on them to climb in.

thanks!

This is an RCI slider. Just saying.

Can't tell from the pic what you're getting at. Are they deflecting?
