These things are awesome, they are super solid and not intrusive at all. Have had my runner fully loaded and lifted the passenger side with hilift and it didnt budge. Great product. Victory 4x4 is a solid company making badass products!
Bob (PA) | February 10th, 2023
I performed what I consider a thorough search of options for my 23 T4R ORP and picked Victory sliders. They appeared stout in online pics which was confirmed when viewed in person. I have not seen other options in person but these have to be among the toughest available. I wanted and like the step feature and the step metal is also robust enough to take a hit. Steps on other available options appear too flimsy to me and more likely to rust through being the metal is more thin. I mounted them by resting on stacked boxes at each end as opposed to using my floor jack. Seemed to be a much more stable way to get them into position. The sliders were well packaged but FedEx is a joke. They come in one box for each slider. Both boxes were completely busted open but fortunately all was OK except for one minor ding on the passenger side rail. The FedEx delivery driver was a complete bozo and was rough handling the heavy boxes by siding them on their side across the full length of the step van and bouncing them off of steps in the floor. I got in the van to help unload which probably prevented more dings. One suggestion is to go with a different delivery service. Not a fan of FedEx. The sliders look great, are very stout and add to my blackout look with powder coating. The powder coating wasn't flawless but fine for a slider on a truck. All-in-all happy with my purchase.
Jason (USA-FL) | September 4th, 2022
I chose these because I wanted a functional step and I really liked the look/design. They are "mostly" bolt-on. Being designed as one-size-fits-all for three generations of 4Runners (1996+), there are "extra" holes and some holes did not line up. So I used two more self-tapping bolts than the directions called for. These things are beefy at 58lbs each! Honestly, they are way overkill in strength for what I need. Purchased early Jan 2022 and they arrived mid-Mar 2022 within the lead time indicated. The box arrived with no hardware, but a quick call to customer service and they shipped out hardware the next day. So a little miss by them but they took care of it quickly, so no big deal there. Overall, I am super happy with these and definitely recommend them!
Note From Victory 4x4: Thanks for the review, Jason!

Finally got my rock rails in (lead times are little longer right now, but worth the wait!), install definitely a two man job, but look awesome and tested out in Berdoo Canyon and they worked great! Wife loves the look aesthetically and dual purpose with the steps helps the kiddos get in our 4runner
tester (California) | April 11th, 2021
purchased March 2021 and installed on a 2011 4runner. Driver's side bolt holes were very close to the edge of the hole cutouts and did not want to align very well. I did not modify but would have made installation a bit easier. Passenger side no issues. I had to cut the rocker panel cover to use them which was expected. Otherwise installed as instructions. They hang about 3/4 of an inch from the bottom rocker panel which was not expected, maybe help less damage if crunched. Time to try them off road which is the purpose, right?

Heavy Duty slider affordable slider that was easy to install. Went bare metal and coated them myself and had them on in one afternoon and hit the trails the next day. Victory continues to produce great products for the 4Runner. Highly recommend these sliders and their other products.
Greg (East TN) | November 27th, 2020
Extremely beefy and well built sliders that look great on my ‘16 Trail. Went with bare steel and coated them myself. Installation was straightforward and done solo in one afternoon. Love the look and quality but be prepared for a VERY heavy package at delivery. Thanks to Victory for a great product - now to buy their roof rack :-)
Jeremy (Denver) | November 2nd, 2020
These sliders are well made and look great. I’ve never been a fan of the traditional slider look - always wanted something with more of an aesthetic that didn’t compromise on quality. Victory nailed it. The install was significantly more involved with KDSS, but definitely doable. The team was always super helpful and available for guidance throughout the process. Cheers , Jeremy.
Troy Gustavison (Grand Rapids, MI) | March 27th, 2020
This is a great company, with great products, and a very helpful staff! I did a lot of research for Sliders, and these were the best bang for your $$. I may be somewhat biased, because they are local, but they are one of the few that offer to powder coat the sliders. Easy installation, they are very well made, and they are pretty stealthy, which was a big deal to me. Also, serving that duel purpose, being a step bar, and slider, was very helpful for my wife, who was struggling to get into the 4runner. Thank you for the great product, and great customer service!
Mark Steelman (Huntsville Al.) | November 5th, 2019
I just want to thank you guys for the great service, product, and shipping. The sliders arrived ahead of schedule, and very well packaged. The powder coat was flawless. When I opened the sliders, I was shocked at how sturdy, and well made they were. Thanks again, now my wife is making me go work on her 4Runner. Mark
