    Actually, those are the ones I have and they mount to the frame, not the body. Here's what they look like.

    I have and like these. They’re not really designed to be a step, but unless you’re wearing boots or thick-soled shoes you can get your toes in there for a boost up to the roof.

    They cause no issues getting in and out of the truck for me. They look good and are unobtrusive and provide enough protection for me so far.

    The one thing I dislike about these is that the curved tubes are open on the ends which mean they have the potential to collect water, mud, road grime, salt, etc. I'm experimenting with easy ways to plug them.

    These are not sliders as they mount on the body, but they are made to look like one... my guess is it's for the looks only.

    These are what I have installed (Toyota part numbers PT22889191 and PT22889190), they work for what I need. Frame mounted, comparatively light-weight, enough to protect from large rocks on desert roads

    I just ordered them from a local dealer. Good price, provide enough protection for what I need. I want to ditch the running boards as they are more of a hindrance and collect tons of mud off road.

    It's just curious why the mfg. of these didn't use round tubing for those outer supports. That would have increased the strength of these considerably. The rest of the rail is round tubing, so...

    I imagine that any force is going to be applied to the rail vertically from landing on an object, which those flat pieces will take. Perhaps it's weight savings to use those flat pieces rather than tubular supports?
