    Step Bar or Sliders.
    Need some type of step bar to help my kids to climb into the truck. Step/Nerf bars are not my favorite item but will save my back from lifting my boys in and out of truck. I’d rather have a functional step bar like sliders when I do go wheel’n (some day). So here’s my question: Sliders be used as step bar?? Is it going to bang my shin and dirty my pants every time I get in? Help me out before I purchase something then regret. If it matters my 05’ DC TRD is stock.

    Both look sweet!!! I like the weld Slider option because of hi-lift jack points. I always wondered where on Taco you can hi-jack w/o sliders.

    I went with sliders w/kick-outs for this very reason (CBI). Best of both worlds:)

    I have Shrockworks sliders and my little boy uses them all the time as a step. Best of both worlds. I also use a jack on them.
