    Ive been wanting a set of sliders for my truck but i dont like the way all of them for the first gens stick out so much, i know that the ones that stick out would protect more from a side impact but i try to take it easy on my truck and just want something to protect my rockers from rocks beating them from underneith. So me and my dad have decided to try to fab up a set.

    I really like the ones on my buddy's fj that are made by nfab and thats the look that we will be goin for when we get around to it. I just want one long tube like that that goes for wheel well to wheel well that will stay nice and under the rocker for protection from droping off onto rocks

    Anyone have pics of their homemade sliders or some that dont stick way out and stay tucked up under the rocker like the ones on the fj above? thanks

    Although mine's for a Gen-2, it might give you some ideas. We decided to bolt them on flush to the side of the frame, so they probably won't hold the weight of the vehicle, but they certainly provide some protection. The diamond plate was added to assist in being a safer step bar.

    Check out my build thread for some pics. Let me know if you want to see more. Also, try the TTORA website for more ideas and blueprints (use google to search for it).
