The ones from Pure FJ cruiser have the kick out and they fit perfect. U can stand on them or jump up and down if you want. They work great in the ruff.

Hi there Blue Pig, I like the swing-away, especially the mount for the Hi-lift. I carry my Hi-lift kinda high, on mounts at the back of the roof rack. Not sure I could copy yours because I have an ARB rear bumper and no swing-away. I like that location though.

I have MetalTech box sliders... and they have done a wonderful job protecting my SUV. And the design actually looks good on the truck, more like a step than homemade self-welded tubing sliders. I slid off a rock and my truck dropped about 15 inches onto another rock. The thump had me thinking I had taken myself into thousands in body repairs. When I finally got to the top of the rut I was in and took a look, I had to search for the scratched powder coat. And the dent in the rail was not even worth filling. A bit of black touchup and all was good.

The rest of the crew with me were equally impressed with the lack of damage, especially the guy guiding me up.

Sadly - MetalTech doesn't seem to sell them any longer.

Here's what they look like (not my rig): I added sand tape to the top so they are useful for stepping on, and mine have a bump towards the rear to push off from rocks before they get to the tires, and the bump gives more footroom when reaching for things on the rack.

Thanks! I used to have my HiLift on the roof rack as well. Definitely more convenient now.

I have the stock Toyota "rock rails" on mine and they have held up very well.

Aftermarket, I like BudBuilt products. I have his skid plates.

I have the All-Pro Apex with kick-outs and plate covers. DOM tubing, I have used the hi-lift to jack from them and they are extremely sturdy. Saved my quarterpanels too many times.

Here are my cheap Amazon bought Tyger-sliders. Not exactly what I wanted, but well worth the money ($279).

I'd seriously consider adding some beef to the plate brackets on that design. Probably fine for light wheeling, but if you plan on using those sliders for a jacking point or bumbling over boulders, I wouldn't trust it. Beefier sliders use box or round tube, not plate steel for the part that goes between the frame and the slider structure.

MetalTech Box Sliders ... and they work really well. Dropped off a tall rock, hit the slider hard enough to jar my teeth, people around me were looking for carnage... a small ding and a scratch in the slider powdercoat fixed with a sharpie.

I think you meant Metal-Tech instead of Weathertech.
