    Have the opportunity to purchase some predator side steps cheap. My 07 had the Westin chrome bar step; and to me was always more of a hindrance than a help. My 12 didn't come with any steps and my wife who is vertically challenged needs help getting into the Prerunner. What's the scoop on these?

    I looked at those. Was going to get some, but went with Avid bars instead. Just couldnt find the deal I wanted on the preds. My kids like the step up.

    I got to see that. First let me get a mug for the beer.

    "Hey OZ - I think I am going to buy me some Predator SLIDERS they look great and should offer unparallelled protection to the side of my truck".

    Well I bought the Predators. Guy made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Came with all new stainless mounting hardware. Really simple to mount. I like the look and the wife appreciates the step.

    Looks nice. Personally I think these look best on lifted trucks.
