    Sliders give protection from door dings and minor rubbing as well as hardcord offroad trips and can be used as steps.
    Nerf bars provide a little bit of protection from bumps but are not made to absorb hard hits. Probably a little better at being steps tho...

    I didn't want steps, I wanted the protection so I went with sliders.

    If you go trail riding, go with rock sliders. I've seen nerf bars buckled and ended up damaging the doors.

    I say just go with sliders. Some of these nerf bars cost over $400 and you can get a nice set of sliders for $265 shipped. Like people said, the sliders are made to withstand all the weight of your truck whereas the nerf bars will EASILY cave in to that sort of pressure. I have sliders and my wife and passengers use them as steps just fine.
