This ladder was put together extremely well. While I was assembling it and installing it I found that the pieces were very very snug. This did make it a little more difficult when bolting everything together but in the end I would definitely recommend this ladder to anyone who wants a nice beefy upgrade to their 4Runner. I will say the one negative is that the install video and instructions seem to be geared toward 4th generation 4runners so if you’re driving a 5th gen you’ll have to do some common sense alterations to the steps. All the parts were there, no extra pieces and it honestly was not that hard to install.

Over all, I love the look of the ladder however the fit is terrible. I have the top plate as snug as possible but yet it has completely scraped the paint off the inside of my hatch area from opening and closing. I have taken it off 2 times and rebuilt it once and it still rubs heavily. This is on a 10k mile 4Runner so overall I wouldn’t recommend as I have met 2 others that have the same problem.

All options given, I would return it for refund but with 25% restocking fee and shipping charges both way deducted, just doesn't worth it... Moreover, it is installed. One purchase that I regret. The powder coating is super easy to scratch and it is steel so, it will rust. Once tighten, the flat edges round up. I bought this ladder because the ones from the competition may not have worked with my Victory roof rack. It looked "okay" on the website photos, but lot worse in real. Looks like it does not belong on my truck. Too many parts and screws to start with. The recommended heavy duty hatch lift can barely hold the rear hatch once open so, forget about adding anything to it. Climbing on the roof? Well, the rear spoiler is in the way. Otherwise, it fits weird, but it fits. 2 stars because no parts were missing in the box.
Note From Victory 4x4: Alain, the powder coat should not be easily scratching. Please contact our customer service team and we can get it handled for you.

Well built, very sturdy, easy install. Only complaint would be that the install video needs to be updated (couple of thr parts are different than video) and include 5th gen 4runner. You will need to buy new struts to hold your hatch up as the added weight prevents the hatch from staying up. Just something to keep in mind, not a big deal. Overall, great product and def would recommend over competitors.

This ladder is well made, installs easily and is a fab addition to my 4Runner. My only complaint....getting it out of the box with the injected styrofoam took longer than the install. No joke. It shipped well but sucked getting it out of the box. You should have seen the mess. Lol You won’t be disappointed with the ladder, once out of the box

After finally receiving my order 3 weeks past the extended lead time as shown on the website. The top of the ladder was sticking outside of the box on arrival and the powdercoat was damaged. I didn't receive all of the parts I needed for install. It does look well built, just don't expect it to arrive anywhere in the timeline provided, or possibly with all the parts included. Overall... dissapointed.

High quality in every aspect. Great design, with real functionality. Very pleased with everything, customer service, lead times and communication and easy install!
Eric (Asheboro NC) | July 19th, 2020
This is hands down the Best looking and best built ladder in my opinion!! It isn't a skimpy tube ladder and it has plenty of places to mount items. I love mine and wouldn't consider anyone else's ladder. Assembly was super easy and it is solid built!

First customer service was amazing to get this out to me at my bug out house! Love the look of the ladder and functionality. Over the last few days of the cold in Michigan The tailgate did get heavy and not want to stay up. Got back to Florida and she stays up no problem at all. I also did change out the tape! Thanks for the great service!
Bryant D (FL) | April 22nd, 2020
like others Have said the tape is under par for me after initial install the 1st step the latter moved side to side the top bracket Can be designed a little better to grip the hatch at an appropriate angle I also recommend dumping the provided tape and getting automotive double sided and he sieve strips. When you order your ladder order the heavy duty struts as well. Over all you can't be the pricing and the quality of the product I'm very happy with the and will enjoy it for some time
Note From Victory 4x4: We are evaluating the tape in the kit and will be upgrading it. Thanks for the honest review!
