Hey guys. I have been looking for some good sliders. At first I liked the All-pro one's because of the kick on it but after seeing them on Dons' I dont like how far the stick out. I am afraid my son will get his foot stuck. So I have been looking around again and cam across some at Demello. Any one running these? If so what do you like and don't like about them and am I going to have to worry about my son getting stuck? Will they keep things from hitting the truck and will the hold up on the trails?

Molly Troy. I did not know where to post this so fill free to move it where you see fit.

I like my Off-Road Solutions round tube sliders a lot. Very sturdy. Plus you support a local guy over in Arvada. Mike Caskey is the owner

If you look in the 05+ Tacoma tech folder on the nat'l board, there's a gazillion slider threads for you to look through.

I've got the Demello sliders, and my kids do fine with them. IMO - a pretty good balance between keeping a tight fit on the body versus providing a usable platform to climb in/out. Like Troy suggests, you can always have them customized with some flat plate on the top to create a more useable stepping platform.

Or check out Slee's new offering:

Then stop looking at the Demello's as well....

Not many options for a few hundred, unless you can weld. Take a look at stubbs welding. Probably the best product for the money - only issue is that they don't offer a bolt-on option.

as blowntaco stated.

checkout ORS (http://www.offroadsolutions.com/), their 'round tube' setup is almost exactly the same as domello, and run around $350. Or you can go the route i went, which is tilt square tube, for about $270

ORS does NOT have a product listed for the new tacoma's as far as sliders, however, they did NOT have a product listed for my reg-cab tacoma, so i called them, set up an appointment, went in, they measured for fitting, then i went back about a week later and picked them up.

The low profile models are great, but I've been in a few places where if I hadn't had such wide sliders the truck would have been pivoting or grinding along the door panels or bedsides.

Put 'em no wider, or barely wider, than the outside of your front tires. Don't leave them inside of your rear tires...I need to add a slight kickout to mine since changing the rear axle.
