    I can't decide if I want sliders or steps on my new 2017 limited tundra crew max. I do not plan on doing any series off reading other than my normal hunting trips I take. I like the looks of the sliders but my question is do these also act as steps or is the angle to steep you would slide off?

    For steps I like the look of the all pro crew max sliders, demello rock crusher and white knuckle. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thank you

    I've got sliders on my 4Runner and that's all they are. No steps. But they've paid for themselves already. Tundras not gonna get wheeled like the 4Runner but I'm gonna go w sliders to help w door dings and maybe the occasional rock. I personally am not a big fan of the big round steps. These are from rocky road outfitters in UT. Like em a lot. Only thing I'm not a fan of is they frame mount AND pinch weld mount. Gotta drill a couple holes.

    I have SDHQ sliders and they work perfect as steps. I had nfab but pulled them for the cleaner look of sliders. Added grip tape to the sliders and zero problems. Steps will be a much cheaper option.

    Same here on SDHQ sliders. Love them. My 7 & 9 yr old girls have no problems using them as steps. IMG_3423.jpg

    2"CB shackles, bushings and 1 shim, lockerdown console vault, rear folding seat back mod, snugtop shell with opening side windows, 46g fuel tank, SDHQ sliders and hidden winch, Decked Drawers, Alcan leaf springs and got rid of the interior chrome
    Again, SDHQ sliders work as steps pretty well. And, lots pricier than nerf bars

    I just switched from N-Fab steps to SDHQ sliders as well. I love the cleaner look, and they are still fully functional as a step. I also figure if I'm off road and hit even one big rock, they would probably pay for themselves.

    That is a big truth, I wish I had gotten sliders before I did this damage!IMG_0404.jpg

    Ouch. That's not cool. I'm hoping to get some good wheeling done tomorrow in Sedona, but don't really want to find out if the sliders will handle ANYTHING I can throw at them. lol

    I'm pretty sure I might make it up there too between 10:00 and noon.

    Scheduled for a warranty repair at the dealership in Prescott so it depends on how long they take

    I'm sure they will!

    I usually deal with Jason over there. The dealership is actually about a mile and a half from my house. lol. They've been good to me so far. I'm hellbent on making the raffle, otherwise, I'd caravan up there. :anonymous:
