I was wondering if anyone had feedback re these sliders:

http://www.4crawler.com/4x4/ForSale/Images/Xterra03.jpg

From what I kind find Shrockworks, 4Crawler, and Black Panther are the only companies that make sliders for the XTerra. Black Panther is still yet to release their slider to the public. I'm trying to find a slider that provides a decent step to the roof rack to unload my bikes. I like the step provided by the OEM nerf bars but would rather invest in a set of sliders that serve the same function along w/ protecting the rig.

Thanks for any feedback.

:clown: -I'm having a hard time understanding that--With my Shrocksliders I can get out of the drivers seat and walk back, across the swingaway bumper, then forward on the passenger side, sit in the pass- seat never having touched the ground!!!

i know a guy who has those 4 crawler sliders on his taco..and really likes 'em.



they are flat, but don't look like they stick out any farther than shrocks do. it's probably a toss-up...which ever you like better.

and i believe calmini makes sliders as well

Calmini makes sliders, but they do not stick out at all. Shrock bars make a good step. I use them all the time. It does help to open the door.

Kind of hard to see the grip tape, but the Srockworks sliders work as good as the stock step rails for accessing the top of the X and of course they provide superior protection! :cheers:

Here is a better red X with gripe tape on the shrock sliders.



Plus Shrocks make good lifting points and they bolt right up.

Thanks for all the feedback and pics. I definitely like how the Shrocks bolt right up to existing holes. The 4Crawler bars have to all be self tapped into the frame or welded. . .not an impossibility just a hassle.

Don't forget that there is actually one hole that you will have to drill on each side of the frame in order to mount even the Shrock sliders but it's not as much of a hassle as the 4xCrawler ones. I even went ahead and got mine welded to the frame as extra insurance at a mufler shop. It only cost me $10 per side to get it done.

If I were to buy sliders today I would get them with the 2 tube support.

Does it make a difference with the 2 tube supports as oposed to the 1 tube support????
Nope no difference at all. I ordered mine with one tube supports. I called Jim after I helped a friend put hers on because she had 2 supports. He said that it is only a cosmetic thing. He was going to sell them with 2 supports but they were more expensive. That's why he offers them as an option at an extra cost.

The ones posted at top look like they have an open front there whereas Jim's are closed. I'd imagine the open ones would bend a lot easier and pickup trail litter such as limbs easily. I don't like em. I think Jim has the market on the sliders and well as the bumpers. Now if he would just get that rear diff cover out...................

No they do not...thank god.

The stock step rails actually bolt to the body on the back side of the rocker panel. Sliders bolt to the frame. With the Shrockworks sliders they use existing holes in the frame except for one on each side that you have to drill. It's not hard to do.
