    I really like the look of the Allpro Sliders with the kick-outs, but don't do much off-roading. I mainly want them to act as a step and just like the appearance so much better than nerf bars, etc. I saw a double cab taco tonight with the n-fab step bars and have to say, I liked it alot more than I thought I would. My question is, can the sliders function as a step, or are they too tight next to the cab? And which would everyone pick for my use? Going on a 2010 black double cab with 3" toytec lift. Thanks in advance!

    I was thinking the same thing. I have a DC LB, and like the look of the sliders better than the nerf, or whatever bars. Could you Line-X them for traction on the bar? If they are weld on, couldn't you adjust how far they stick out?

    I heard of people putting griptape on sections of the sliders for traction. Sounds like a cheap method. Easy to replace when you tear it up on the trails

    I'm gonna have to disagree. I have sliders by 4xInnoations and had them welded on so they angle up (like most sliders do) and I think they're awesome step bars. I offroad a couple times a month do panel protection is their primary use but I always usem to get in my truck.

    The best part is my wife actually likes using them to get in too. She was complaining that my truck was too high and really appreciates the sliders and always uses them to get in.

    They are higher than a standard "step" but I like it becase it's close to my door and it will not allow anyone elses door to swing into mine (like when I'm parked)

    One thing tho, and as everyone else warned, there are dangerously slippery when wet. I stepped on them once to wash the roof of my truck, slipped, and hit my shin on the bars. I shouted every curse word possible in the 20 seconds following. Lol.

    All in all, lovem for protection and use for steps. Dangerous when slippery but just gotta be careful.

    Another idea, the sliders can be welded on at any angle so if you really want the all pros getem welded on so that they stick straight out.

    Or a custom fabricator. I'd check with the folks at CBI Offroad. PM MrTRD. I'll bet they can work something out for you. They have some nice looking kick-out sliders as well. BeefedTaco makes nice sliders as well.
