    I tried to do a search for rock rails but my tablet just keeps going back to the home page. There may be an app for that :confused:. Anyway, could someone send me a link to a rock rail thread? I like the Body Armor ones but according to the web they won't fit anything after 2011. I would prefer something squarish that bolts on. I'm not a big fan of round tubing. Thanks for your help.

    I really like them because they are unique, strong and great as a step. Not many people run square on Tacoma's.

    They are strong as hell. Mine are weld, but they make bolt on. Landed my passenger side on a rock and my front wheel wasn't touching. No dents at all, but scratched them when I put it in 4 and turned off of it. I can jack one side of my truck on them. Used them today a few times even. It is funny to see a 2 inch flat smooth mark down a rut where they hold me off the bank.

    This. Hybrid sliders are by far the best combination of strength and weight. They also allow the outer bar to be kicked up some, improving clearance. Flat sliders will hang you up on occasion.

    BAMF and Relentless both make good options. And if you're going to bother with sliders, go ahead and weld them on.
