Looking to swap out my n-fab steps for some sliders and wanted some opinions. Weld-on vs Bolt-on. What made you choose the ones you got? Kick out or not? Top plates or not? Soooo many options.

Best coverage is kick outs with top filler plates i’d imagine. Mine are SOS Concepts offroad. Many awesome companies out there. I chose mine solely on a sale going on 25% off as their steel was same gauge as others I was considering. I do like them tucked up but one of my needs was for it to stick out enough to block door dings at the mall when im crawling around which they do awesome at

Yes But ensure they “bolt to frame” not the factory step bolt locations. And endure company has tested them. You can see plenty of picks online of companies using forklifts ect to lift their trucks to demonstrate. Mine bolt with like 8-10 bolts per side. Took about 2 hours to install.

Go bolt on and sell them when u sell the truck, if ever. I dont think there is a need for weld on anymore with they way these fabricators make them.

I got mine the other day from Avid Offroad in AZ. Frame bolt on, and they were priced better than what I found online. Awesome quality and highly recommended from Tacoma/4runner guys out here in Phoenix.

Something totally different. Went with Shrockworks bolt-on because they're here in Houston. I actually like the overall wider guard. They also work as steps for my wife, when necessary.

I went with the SOS Concepts Bolt On sliders, got in on a group buy, also I get them flat (0 degree angle) with top plates for the wife and 2 little girls.

PS. No i dont work for them.
These look good in your photos. High and tight like you said. But sometimes I see them and they don’t seem as tight as this. You mind sharing a photo from above?

I went with SDHQ OFFROAD bolt-on sliders for my DCLB for a few reasons. In my opinion, their fab shop is second to none out here in AZ, they have five anchor points, full coverage wheel-well to wheel-well, 4130 chrome-moly for super strong construction and light weight at the same time, TIG welded, kick-out towards the back and they look really clean with the slightly textured powder coat.

My first set of Avid sliders were custom made with a cool kickout for my '06 Reg Cab:

Second set was a lot more basic for my '16 DCSB but I really liked the functionality, totally wished they were bolt-on so I could've kept them:

So now my 3rd set are under construction, made to the same specs as the last set, only bolt-on instead of welded. Just in case. Haha

Someone already posted up for Pelfreybilt so here they are with top plates and kick out. I like that they were bolt on, and I like the top plate for washing the top and when the wife and dog jump in. Makes a good step for them.
