    So not an off-road/rock crawling review yet. Just received the sliders, did the install and want to offer you guys an opportunity to see them on the TRDP.

    I bought these for $750 (delivered) on-sale currently. They appealed to me because they come fully configured with everything I want, and there is no additional costs (kick out, powder coated with a bed liner (like) texture, top plates, 0 degree). They mounted perfectly and I had was zero issues with the install. I used a leftover deck board, and my jack to install, went pretty quick (20 minutes each side).

    They were packaged good, so much so that the box was delivered broken (FedEx), but the sliders were wrapped up very carefully so a broken box didn’t have any negative affects.

    I like the way they turned out, I’m sure they will serve me well.

    No drilling - everything mounted up perfectly!
    There is a small piece of plastic (2” X 4” - in front of the rear tires) that is mounted to the underside of the body which is used to likely to deter rocks kicked up from the front tires to impact the rear - that needs to be removed to clear the space for the rear of the slider to mount up.

    Thanks man.
    They are a bargain, relative to the competition.

    I will, but my 4Runner won't be here until Mid-Dec or so.

    wow. even their price before the sale is pretty good IMO, considering it already has a top plate, kickout and DOM. usually the bed lining alone can be a few hundred dollars.

    I just tried installing these. Passenger side went on quick with the help of a floor jack, but the drivers side is proving to be a PAIN--mainly due to a KDSS line and line bracket...and a misaligned slider bracket
    • KDSS line bracket - One of the slider bolts will utilize a bolt hole occupied by one of the KDSS line brackets, so be prepared to remove the existing bolt and tuck the slider plate behind the KDSS line bracket. AND, if you're unlucky like me, be prepared to adjust said line bracket hole (read, dremel out) so that it lines up with the slider plate hole. Why?--because, the bracket sits right on top of the slider square tube, misaligning it from the existing hole. I'll try to update this post with some photos, once I go back to adjust KDSS line bracket.
    • KDSS line - another slider bolt will line up just where two KDSS lines, that run along the frame, angle slightly downwards. One of the lines angles down early and crosses right in front of the hole, but the line isn't fixed directly against the frame, so it will clear the bolt head once it's tightened down. We had to use the jack to slightly bend the lines up while tightening the bolt down.
    • Slider Bracket - there is a single small bracket that connects to the frame with just one bolt. That bolt hole is misaligned from the frame hole by about 1/2 inch. We used a ratchet strap to carefully bend that bracket towards another slider bracket to align the holes.
    Regarding the textured powder coating--it chips off fairly easy. I ran my fingers across the underside of the slider (between the tube and the bottom of the top plate) while picking it up, and found a "paint bubble" that immediately cracked, crumbled, and chipped off. Fortunately, it seems there's another layer of black coating underneath. Not a huge deal since I figure it'll need to be touched-up several times in it's life with regular use.

    Oh, also, it seems that logo cutout wasn't completely thought through. It could use a couple small reinforcement tabs. We accidently bent it down during installation, then bent it right back with very little effort.
