    Hello All,
    I am looking for a set of sliders that will not stick out from the body of the truck by more than about an inch. I had the OEM step sides on and it was hard for my girlfriend to get in and out. She has a bad knee. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks for the help,

    You can use tue sliders as a step.
    But your not going to find sliders that drop down like normal steps.
    Are you trying to find sliders that she can use as a step or some that are out of the way enough to not be in the way of entering/exiting the truck?

    If you get weld on sliders you can have the installer cut the legs to adjust them as you'd like

    Bad knee stepping on tube sliders is a recipe for disaster. If you do go this route cover them with grip tape

    They only sell them for sort bed trucks, but it looks like you have a pro so your good to go with them.

    The ends on those sliders look like they would get caught on things

    The underside of them is similar to boat sliders so they dont get hung up very easy.

    I would actually prefer them to stick out a bit more so that they could be used as a step but for people wanting strictly armor they are hard to beat from a profile standpoint.

    I just put the TJM on and love them. Go through bumpersuperstore. Much cheaper. 89091203-B785-4154-B540-B95B5BD28D49.jpg
