    Hey I was looking at side steps and this rail came up but the company makes them only for jeeps:(. Do ya'll no any companies that make rails just like that but for my excess taco mama? You can also show pictures of yours to give me more ideas thanks!

    Yup, that'll work.....
    I always preferred the square tubes over the round ones. You can use it as a step if you need it.

    You have to have those welded onto the frame.

    I had a used set of those on my 96. I ended up welding the sliders onto 'L' brackets (kinda like angle iron) with gussets. The L brackets were stitch welded to the frame. I did this for more strength and less stress on the frame.

    The 2nd gen trucks are obviously different and have C channel frame.....not sure if you could use the L bracket method or not.

    Is that when they flare out at the end by the tire?

    I was looking at the HD-SKOs they are looking pretty nice. On ur deluxe can you see much of the square tubing and does it work well as a step?

    If you actually use the sliders often then welding. Bolting will hold up but you can sheer the bolt heads off.

    it's easy to weld. I modified mine because I wanted to be able to repaint them easily.

    and no way they will shear, I can lift my complete truck by the sliders, bang them on rocks and it won't move at all. The stubbs have 5 legs (more than anyone else) and I have two grade 8 bolts in each.. forget any possibility of shearing.
