Do 4runner rock sliders fit on the GX? Just wondering if there are more options for purchasing
Love my White Knuckle Off Road. Super easy install. Did it by myself with a floor jack and jack stands.
Went and looked those up. They are pretty neat and a bit cheaper than the rocky road. Is the quality / strength less or is it just the same material but cheaper?
I had the Rocky Road on my 80 series and the White Knuckle were much nicer all the way around. The fitment was perfect on the WK where I needed to fab a bit with the RR. The powder coat finish is awesome on the WK and they come packed like precious cargo. RR just in a box with some rubbing together. I believe WK told me they were the same as the same gen 4 Runner without KDSS. Call them though. They are great to work with
One thing you should know, if it matters to you (it doesn’t to me)...
White Knuckle is a U-bolt design. They don’t bolt directly to the frame, they use huge u-bolts to mount their sliders. EDIT...ok, they do bolt directly to the frame, but they do it via big u bolts that “wrap” around the frame. Other companies bolt INTO pre-threaded hole already in the frame.
I had u bolt sliders (Hanna) on an fj80 that I bashed mercilessly all over the rubicon, Moab, etc and they never let me down.
I’m totally sold on the design and robustness, but thought you should know.
I have a semi-related question. I understand the top portion of the factory running boards connect and create a weather seal if I read correctly. If I removed the running boards completely (I don’t want to cut them) could I use some of this along the entire length to cover up those holes to prevent some of the moisture getting in?

Beware you will seriously rip your legs up getting in and out, wearing shorts, when using that tape. You may want to re-consider cutting the OEM steps and sealing correctly...you will probably never remount them.
Just ordered! Thx for the infoI think they do. Personally I’ve decided on these. Specifically the kicker full cover option.
