    First-time 4Runner owner since November with a 2021 Venture Edition. Looking at my first mod and need some help deciding on one of these three step/nerf bars. Will likely only engage in light off-roading a few times a year, and there aren’t a lot of boulders in NE Indiana, so I don’t think rock sliders will be necessary.


    Does anyone have experience with any of these products or installations? With runningboardwarehouse.com?

    Hey there! Welcome! Like you new 4Runner owner. On the advice of two other friends, my first mods were new A/T tires and 'sliders'. Now, I haven't really looked at you links too deeply, but nerf bars remind me of the chrome side steps. Lots of guys and gals here take there rigs on way more burly stuff than I intend to. "So why get sliders?" Well, IF you do get a little squirrelly one day and crimp your rocker panel or doors, that's a darn spendy fix, especially with all the eletrickery in these vehicles.

    So, after long research, and knowing the current lead times, I order some C4 sliders. I even spent the extra 80 bucks for the DOM tubing. I bought sliders for the 'just in case' aspect and that they will slide, not hook, the obstacle. Much like I think one version you show here. I've also seen a picture on this forum somewhere of someone getting broadsided - the sliders actually saved the vehicle and the little kid inside from side impact damage. So there's that too.

    While there aren't many boulders in IN, you never know where you might travel in the future. Say you do head to Moab, Colorado, Oregon, etc. The initial "buy once, cry once, glad I did" might be piece of mind.

    Need some suggestions for rear springs. I’m currently on icon 2” rear springs but adding a bumper in the next two months with dual swings outs. Guesstimated weight is going to be around 200 for bumper plus extending the weight further out back for the tire I’m running a 285/70 ridge grappler will have dual Jerry cans as well (only filled when we are going somewhere. In the back we have a half platform drawer that is around 30# empty and another 30 full. We also have a dometic cfx75dz that lives in the truck full time. I was thinking the 3” overlander spring but I’m concerned I may not have enough weight in the back especially when not fully loaded down I am at 2.5-2.75 in the front and don’t want to go any higher.
