    Personally, I dont like how wide they are. If I got running boards there would be a little step, if any and would work more as rock sliders. Depends on preference and the look you are going for. The product looks sturdy although I would like slightly thicker brackets.

    This is more what I would like - I might weld on a small grate or something to make a step spot for traction on shoes https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/sliders-2nd-gens.199562/

    Or if you get a lift you could get one of the drop down step bars! :bananadance:

    It says their design inspiration was the iPhone?! Anyhow....

    Get what you pay for in all things. I don't think I'd want plastic side steps personally.

    God those are ugly. At least they would protect your rocker panels though. Keep looking.

    first of all, that tacoma picture is shopped. not real

    in fact all the photos are shopped. look at the stiff standing on his
    running board (supposedly) now look at the shadow ? notice how
    the shadow is not from that board ? [it is an obvious shoop]

    second, nothing strong and reliable can be had at that price

    third, looks like crap


    so yeah go for it cuz this guy below says so and posted 4 pictures to prove it

    I guess the hunt for some used OEM boards in Ohio is on....I've got no need for sliders, just a step up and a bit of protection from mud splatters and door dings at the mall.

    I had real sliders on my last wrangler and put them through some serious abuse, but this shiny new truck won't be used for anything more than daily driving, sailboat hauling, and retrieving the sailboat from beaches.

    Ordered the OEM plastic ones on Fleabay, but the box looks way too long to be for an access cab. Anyone able to confirm that pt212 35053 is the correct part number for a 2nd gen access cab.
