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.
