    I agree with you. Unfortunately many people believe everything they read on the internet good or bad and don't ever try things out for themselves.

    Those DIY TG sliders look great and are low priced, but you've got to factor in welding. Unless you can weld or have a connection, that drives up the price more.

    all this info is great but ya what box rocket said x3 ........ the only reason i want them is 1 for the price and 2 because when i went with box rocket to rattlesnake trail they looked really nice on his truck... plus anything is better then nothing. I'm also not going to go extreme off roading yet, but i do want slider just in case something happens. better to have it then not at all

    They did more than just "look good" on my truck that night. :) I'm sure you remember at least a couple times they did their job.

    I hear that Trail gear sliders deflect into the bottom of the body on tacomas:spy:














    Just kidding i had to you cant fight gravity:p Im with you i dont think the strenth of the tubing when you get right down to it matters all the much unless your comparing SQ to round. I think the only reason DOM gets a good rep is because its the only one thats really "rated" for a cage. I think you would be hard pressed to tell DOM and HREW tubing apart on the trail.

    I've seen square sliders bend too. It's much more about the overall design of the sliders, how they are attached and proper gussets. I don't care how heavy duty any brand of sliders are. You hit them hard enough, they're gonna bend. And sometimes you can't control how hard you hit.

    I second what Box Rocket just posted. I have Trail Gear sliders and just received my Trail Gear rear bumper yesterday. I'm painting it and also spraying it with body armor. Putting it on tomorrow!

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Agreed but there is no way the TG sliders have proper gussets. Sure there a great price but you get what you pay for. A softer steel then every vendor on this forum poor robotic welds (I had to run a second bead on the ones I installed because the bead was way to thin in some spots) gussets they I can't even call them gussets light tabs are larger.

    If the OP wants a low priced DOM slider go with 4x Innovations they are constructed out of USA DOM and way stringer then TG. The gussets do need to be larger IMO but they are way better then TG sliders.

    I wont disagree about the TG gussets, but its so easy to make your own stronger gussets and have them work out just fine. That's what I did on my Land Cruiser that also has TG sliders. I made my own frame plates and gussets and I've pounded on those sliders for years and they've held up awesome.

    Hangin the whole weight of the driverside on the slider. These are 67" TG sliders (not designed for a heavy Land Cruiser). with my own plates and gussets. No deflection, no dents and lots of abuse. If they can hold up this well under my HEAVY Land Cruiser, they'll hold up just fine on a much lighter Tacoma.
