Who has rock sliders? I got a good deal on used sliders for my Tacoma. Getting them later this week. I'll post pics. They are All-Pro Apex sliders with a fill plate and kick out. Angled 15 degrees. Powder coated.

I like going to dispersed campsites and down fire roads. Nothing crazy but you never know. Plus I wanted a step for my kids and to reach the roof rack. Now I'll have a lifting point since the truck is lifted.

Do any of you have sliders on your 2wd?

Seems like it would promote a high center event unless you had enough momentum to carry you past center.

Do you have a rear locker?

No not yet. But the limited slip differential works great. My truck is lifted so I'm pretty high off the ground. Not too worried about that. These sliders are angled up 15 degrees too. Tucked in nicely. I'll post a pic when I get them on. I see your concern though. Definitely a possibility.

Don't plan on going to rocky areas where it's possible. I know my limits have a lot of experience with this truck. This is more for those oops moments and to have another lifting point, and a step to reach the roof rack. Just knocking out a few birds with one stone

Our 2wd truck will get sliders at some point, we've had some trips in Death Valley were the truck got put up against some rocks and dinged the fender flares/door pretty well, Sliders would have prevented that. Its also gotten rubbed up against some trees and again sliders would have helped. My partner is good at driving "full send" so skids in that regard tend to help, LOL

Downside is no one makes em for full size, single cab, short bed trucks... so we're going to fab some up when the time comes,.

If you're in Southern California there are a lot of fabricators that might be able to do it. But it's always great to DIY if you can.
