    Hey Everyone,

    Just purchased my tacoma this week and looking to add my first two mods. Running Board/Sliders and Tonneau Cover.

    Side Steps:

    Or I am trying to find who makes these that I saw on a TRD PRO if you can point me in the right direction.

    As for Tonneau cover I want an aluminum folding model, I really wanted the Diamondback SE but it is a little expensive.

    Expensive you wanna talk about expensive. Start doing all the group buys that @ramonortiz55 puts together. Then ur see what expensive is!!

    I like the step rails but for that price you could get some real rock sliders that would actually give you a lot more protection. I have no idea on a tonneau cover glwt.

    Mobtown, BAMF, SOS Concepts, Allpro, Pelfreybilt, are well respected fabricators. You'll wait a bit but you won't regret it.

    well I have the Bakflip Fibermax and it doesn't leak lol holds up well in Canada winter too, my $0.02 is I love it man. the fibermax is stronger then the g2, its an aluminum alloy and can hold more weight, it cost me more then 700 tho haha but all in all I have no complaints other then the fact then it uses the factory rails to mount which makes it harder to mount a bed rack for an RTT

    He hooked up our Tacoma exactly how we wanted the sliders. Best price I could find and customized how I wanted them. Doesn't get any better than that. Couldn't have been happier with the turn out and he's a great guy to work with.

    Thanks for the input. Glad to hear you have no leaks. So do you think the Fibermax is better than the F1? Off the top of your head do you know the big differences? I think I can get it around that price my friend knows a wholesaler down here for this.
