    This is a great chart for comparing base pricing. A note about the 4x Innovations sliders is that the $215 is a current sale price which ends this Saturday. The regular price is $245 for HREW, $315 for DOM and $330 for square main tube.

    There is a lot more than price to making a decision on sliders. Thinks like material type and mounting system are especially important to make sure you get the sliders that fit your application.
    A while back we did some drop testing on our 3 different types of sliders to better understand and show the difference.

    We even dropped our brand new 5th gen 4Runner!
    We also did lab analysis of our own materials.


    P.S. We'll have bolt ons soon. 2nd prototype is in the works. Tread plates are also in the works for the ACLB/DCSB.

    If you ever need someone to test fit, let me know. I'm not far from Platteville

    Yes I would like to have a second truck to compare to once we get the 2nd prototype done.

    OP updated to include material for each option. If they company did not list what type of metal was used I assumed HREW.

    Bolt to body has a 400# limit, bolt to frame acn support the weight of the truck for a tire change.

    Edit: 1 3/4" .120 wall HREW is more than most need for sliders. I've had my whole truck slide off a rock and on to the sliders a few times now. They take the hits.

    Wow nice! That was a lot of work. I hope you didn't take my post as me being critical. It wasn't meant to be, more just to inform others that there is a wide range of options to fit a wide range of needs.

    You forgot Pelfreybilt...too soon?

    Really nice list! I appreciate it and appreciate just a list of all the fabricators...I hadn't heard of at least 50% of them.

    It wasn't too much work. I was actually interested in how many people use DOM standard, and how they're prices have (or more so haven't) changed. I've been tracking these prices for about 4 months and there hasn't been too much price increase, only a couple companies have actually increased their prices for certain products.

    Thanks for the list! Still waiting on prices to come down, 4x innovations is amazing - doubly so at that price. Makes me jealous sometimes of the Jeep guys at work who can get front, rear bumpers, skidolates and sliders for $1500

    That's a tough comparison. Jeep bumpers are tiny, mostly sourced from China and benefit largely from economy of scale. Bigger market equals larger bulk quantities equal lower overall price. I'm willing to bet one Tacoma front bumper is about the same as 2 Jeep bumpers.

    You also have how much shorter they are, meaning there is less material needed for sliders as well

    And weld. Many don't have an outer hoop, so there's no tube bending.

    Oh I totally agree, especially coming from a Tacoma DCLB which would be at least two jeep lengths. And on market of scale it could be worse you guys are right. A coworker has a Colorado and there is really only one company making things right now, good for that company (sort of, even with high prices they don't sell many units), bad for prices on those few consumers who want to mod their Colorados.

    Great work OP! I've been looking at sliders as my next mod and this list is very helpful. I've recently found myself with about 6 different tabs open and going back and forth trying to compare options and prices and materials, so this is very nice to have it all in one place. I'm sure it'll help me make a decision. The only down side is the lead times! :frusty:
