Trail gears look good, I have a friend who has them on his sas yota. We have slid over bolders and they held up just fine. Good sliders!

I don't remember having to cut the legs. They flex a little but hold the truck just fine.

those don't look bad at all with a body lift. i was thinking they would look stupid and was straying away from them bc i have a bodylift on my truck but i actually like that look a lot.

If any of you guys want measurements from a Tacoma to ranger i can measure for you. Im pretty sure they are very close. Over on the Tacoma forum there are many vendors that sell them CHEAP

these are the ones im on a group buy with as you can see there is an option for body lift

^Yeah, depending on where you order them from, you can get trail gear sliders for about 166 bucks for the 78 inch sliders. That's a hell of a deal

Question here. I was just looking at the rocky road superslider/ rocksliders and they were said to fit the 98' -08' Rangers on the web page. What has changed in the frames of newer years like my 2010?. I like the idea as mikerider said of being bolt on. I have no fab skills myself so I would have to take I somewhere to have it done. Will these still fit my 2010 Sport 4x4??

there is no change. they probably test fit them on an 08 a few years ago and have not recently tested on a newer truck

Those look super slick! Are they bolt on or weld on? Would you mind taking some pics of how they are mounted to the frame?

Are you happy with them bolted on? This is the route I'm interested in, minus the body lift. Any problems getting them drilled/bolted onto the frame? Components in the way? Anything you'd do different?

I've got a used set of Trail Gear sliders waiting in the garage, I just haven't gotten up the ambition.

i put a transfer case skid on my truck last night and it looks like the only thing in the way are brake and fuel lines. they are only held in by plastic clips, should be able to pull them out to drill and mount the sliders then push them back in.

i am now hoping to buy a set after christmas is over

there is no difference in price for these if you are body lifted or not. they are not even designed for a ranger

you should be able to buy them and drill your own holes to mount them where ever you need them

difference in application... mine are to keep my truck as strait as I can on the occasional tree or rock strike, not trying to pivot the truck on boulders constantly, my sliders would handle that BUT not the mounts, they would need more metal to reinforce for sure it I was going to use them like you do.
