Often overlooked, rock sliders are one of the most valuable upgrades you can make to your off-highway vehicle, especially if you're on the trail in one of Toyota's newest-generation 4Runners. One wrong move, or a rock that decides to unseat itself, and your pretty new truck is going to be in the shop for some extensive bodywork. Fortunately for owners of the newest generation 4Runner - Slee Off Road has just announced that they are now offering bolt-on sliders for all 2010+ models.
The legs are attached to the main slider body using four 3/8" bolts per leg. The legs bolt to mounting tabs welded into the slider body. The slider body is formed out of 3/16" steel and functions as both a step and a slider.
There are two aluminum tread plates attached to the top surface of the slider body. These can be supplied in black or gray. The tread plates have dimples that form a non-slip surface. The main slider body is cut with the same pattern as the tread plates to prevent dirt / ice build-up. The sliders are finished with 60% gloss powder coat finish. Pre-treatment includes baking (to remove all oil), phosphate washing and sandblasting before powder coating is applied.
The SliderStep is unique that it features a bolt together design that is as strong as a welded slider. Having the slider bolt together allows for shipping with UPS or Fedex, eliminating the need for truck freight.
