Do they function as a step as well? After searching I've found some say yes and others say no, depending on which brand and how far they stick out. I've been thinking of 4XInnovations' sliders.

My kids and wife would appreciate them more if they were functional as a step you see. I was originally thinking of tube steps for my ride but became interested in sliders once people recommended these instead.

I think they look great, obviously serve their function off road, just wondering about day-to-day use as a step. Thanks

Its as you said, some function well as a step and some don't. If your looking into sliders I would advise getting a kick out with it. Works well as a step into the bed. I wont be doing sliders on my Taco for a few months. After lift and wheels/tires is when I'm moving on to armor.

Mine sticks out far enough to be used as a step. Useful too when washing the top.

get them custom, i printed off a pic of shrockworks and the specs and gave it to my welding shop. told them to make them stick out a little more, and they are excellent. prevent door dings too, and they were much cheaper than shrockworks, i think i paid $350 for them.

Wow those are way expensive but the best i've seen so far as bolt on and looks. I had to get my sliders cut and then bent down because it was angled way to much. If the shop would have installed the sliders flush, i wouldn't have been able to open any of my doors. The bottom of the "L" bracket isn't even touching the bottom of my frame and has 1-1.5cm gap. The shop that did the weld work did a good, job but it's one of those investments i wish i would have gotten them custom made.

Those are some nice sliders but expensive:eek: and I thought Demello's were expense. Both great quality work though.

Not trying to threadjack. But....

I really like the N-Fabs; they look like a nice combo of step/slider. I was wondering how they work offroad. They look like they could get hung up pretty easily; anyone have any experience with these?

Also are they available with the kickout at the bed? Do they run all the way down to the bed?

Thanks!

Go custom.. That way you can get what you want.. You can have them stick out and be kinda like Nerf bars on steroids or you can have them sucked in for rock climbing..

Tight to the body with out too much width = a lot of wheeling in rocks and stuff

coming out from the frame about 13" or so is good. Too far out if goofy looking.. Get some tubing and hold it up and see what you like.. Get some jack stands and put the tubing there you think it's good at and see how hard it is to stand or wash the top of your truck.. Bigger your foot the farther out you may want to go to get a better holding on the tube with your foot.. I'm making custom ones, I've drawn them and designed them with the specs of shrockworks. Almost identical but stick out a little further and are 1.5" tubing rather then 1.75.. 1.75" tubing is overkill unless you religiously 4x4 and crap.. lol.

N-fabs are NOT sliders and they would hang really easily/get messed up offroad IMO
