    They only sell one type that will fit both non-KDSS and KDSS. Saves making 2 versions of their different varieties.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    At first glance they reminded me of the SleeOffroad sliders, and then I saw the next pic.
    Looks to me that they would collect a lot of debri up under the inside. It’s no completely boxed. I say that’s a perfect place for wet mud to slowly cause corrosion.
    I rolled with Demello Hybrid sliders. I like the strength that the square tube gives on the main rail, while using the round tube on the exterior.
    I will post some pics of my armor as well.

    I noticed that after I posted, that looks like a horrible design imo as well.
    Can't wait to see the pics!

    Has anyone replaced the whole Limited grill/bumper with an SR5 grill/bumper? I can't find it again, but I believe in some discussion of replacing the Limited grill with a TRD Pro, someone said the SR5 actually matches up with the Limited's attachment points.

    2011 4Runner Trail Edition
    4xInnovations Bolt-On Rock Sliders
    I just joined today and am looking forward to some good discussions. I have only made one mod so far and I am using the 4xInnovations bolt-on sliders. They seem to be the strongest and best designed sliders for actual use. They even posted a video on Youtube of them drop testing them on a rock and it is pretty impressive.



    I am a licensed Civil Engineer in NC, SC, GA, and AZ and have been doing engineering design for 29 years. When I wanted sliders for my “new to me” 2011 4Runner, I spent 6 months reading and researching everything I could find because I wanted something that was well made, strong, and affordable. I looked at everything from weld-it-yourself kits to save money to bolt-on and, frankly, nothing really compared to the build quality and strength that was evident in the 4xInnovations design. I could tell that these were built the way I would build them and that was what I wanted. You can tell that every opportunity was taken to make them stronger in a way that minimized the stress transferred to the frame rails. Pretty much all of the other bolt-on sliders attach with between 6 and 10 bolts per side, but these use 17 or more on each side. Watch the video on YouTube for more detail at YouTube. There is also a video on installation and a drop test video (which nobody else has done).

    My only problem was that the website said 2014-2018 and my 4Runner is a 2011. I bugged Adam at 4xInnovations for about 4 months, sent him photos and measurements, called him and talked about the install, and finally we concluded that the sliders would probably fit my 2011 after all. I placed the order and couldn't be happier. Installing them was a breeze (after three coats of bare metal primer and three coats of satin black). I did it myself using a floor jack with a 2x4 to spread the load and the only difficult part was getting the KDSS accumulator pulled away from the frame so I could slip the slider underneath it (it is pretty tight). Once everything was mounted, I added grip tape to the top (12" x 2" 80 grit pre-cut strips from Amazon) and they look fantastic. I attached a couple photos below.

    I must first test a set of skids, slimline bumper & I can give my opinion! Lol
    You have some good products. I hope you are added as an authorized vendor!
    PM me if you want me to test a set of sliders. I will gladly give them a run!
    Good luck!

    Yeah, it was a bad joke. I was just saying to let a member (me) test them (I know they are being sold already).
    As stated; you all make some good products!
    Good luck.
    Sorry for the confusion!

    We do have a black friday deal going on now go to our vendor page on here. We have a 5th gen t4r now so it'll be easier to do product development. Stay tuned for updates and future products. I know @Trident904 is waiting for us to make a hybrid front.

    In your black Friday add all I see is one picture. That is why I asked about the sliders. Even on your site it is hard to see the sliders with a kickout & fill. Any chance of more pictures of that item?
    Thanks.
