    I have them on 2018 Sport. They came from the dealer installed, but I would have bought a set if they hadn't. I had them on my 2012 as well and like the looks and functionality. I do not do off roading for the sake of off roading but do use the truck for fishing and hunting etc which many times involves a dirt road and/or a short drive across a field and such. I guess the dedicated off road folks have a legitimate grip with the OEM predator steps. I can see where they would catch on things and bend or break due to the somewhat lightweight aluminum construction. All depends on how you're going to use your truck.

    I'll be keeping my truck as a pavment princess. Never hunt or fish and nevet off-road. I work construction so the worst it gets is just taking a poorly graded dirt road to site, but never off roading. How much did you get them for if you don't mind me asking? I saw them on Amazon for just over $1,000.

    I'm sure you could get them for way less. Are you in Ontario Canada, or Ontario California?

    Is yours a long bed or short bed? I have an TRD OR DCSB coming soon and will need some steps. I'm in NorCal.

    Toyota dealers in Canada do not offer or sell the OEM Predator steps. They are only available in the USA. I have a set on my 17 DCSB, but bought them used off a TW member living in NY state, and drove down to pick them up.

    I mentioned this to the dealership owner, and he said that Canadian dealers do not necessarily get access to all accessories that USA gets.

    I like the Predator steps because they are easier to get in and out vs running boards, and because they are aluminum, won't rust in our climate like a lot of the steel tube steps on the market.

    Been wanting some sliders. I’ll sell my Predators for $400. About 6000 miles on them; 5 months old. My zip is 23230 if you want to calculate shipping.

    I recon if Ya go off roading, and Ya prepare as Ya should, Ya could take the steps off before hand. I don't have the fancy ones but I have taken mine off a few times and it is only 5, easy to get to, bolts a side.

    I like em. If I ever go seriously offroading I'll take those and the mud flaps off first.

    Twice I have hit shit on the highway that would have done major door damage if the steps hadn't taken the hit. Both were when it was super windy and crap blew onto the road. On was a big box and the other was a steel watering can (WTF)

    I respectfully disagree, my wife uses them all the time and they are perfect for her, as do I. I guess it's just personal preference.

    I am in NorCal and looking to sell my predator steps! They came on my truck and I took them off after about 1,000 miles to do some off roading and haven't put them back on since. I have an TRD OR DCLB but oddly enough the dealer gave me predator steps for a short bed. I didn't realize until I got home (and it's a big part of why I am trying to sell them) but they should fit perfectly on your taco (assuming its a 3rd gen). Let me know if you are interested.

    I have my predator steps for 2 years now. I like them very much except during winter when they collect too much ice . I live in Quebec, Canada, but I am sure that my neighbours in Vermont or Maine have the same problem. So if you live up north it's not ideal.

    I got mine for free. I had the 5" oval tubes, and my neighbor had the Predators. We both liked the others steps so we swapped. I wanted them to help my 6 year old get in and out of the truck easier. For that they work fine.
