A 11/18/2021, 12:30:33 PM You should have no issues. The sliders are shared between 4th and 5th Gen, so if there are holes that don't line up, they are not required for your model. If you have any questions, give tech support a call!
Q William Erwin • 12/26/2021, 8:42:24 PM Will these fit gx460….? They appear to have the same exact mounting points
A 12/27/2021, 12:11:57 PM They will not. We do make Blitz Sliders for the GX460 which are also a true rock slider, just different style.

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!
Sam (CA) | May 17th, 2021
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?
Michael (Oklahoma) | January 6th, 2021
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
Blaire | September 16th, 2019
Contacted the folks at Victory and ordered my Strike sliders. Great folks and easy to work with; lead time was a couple weeks after order due to powder coating. Had them freight delivered, packaging was amazing and not a single blemish anywhere. All hardware was included + some extra bolts. Nothing complicated on install but definitely need 2 people as they are heavy. Added to a 2015 4runner LE (already did the trail rocker swap) and they fit tight against the body. Everything lined up nicely (I had already removed XREAS so no hard lines to deal with) Although I won't use them often for their slider capability, I would have zero qualms about their strength. They extend just enough from the body to make a perfect step while still protecting my doors and underside from road debris. Absolutely would recommend to anyone in the market for a slider/step combo. They are beefy and definitely well-built! 5 stars from me. Still looking like new after months of driving and some mild offroading. Thanks guys!
Pat (MI) | December 3rd, 2021
I love your guy's products... As I read the reviews I noticed one individual had the same issue on install of the drivers side... A couple of hole were off a bit and required some light modding... passenger side was easy pesy. I did contact you guys on this and you did say you checked your jigs... Other than that still love your products and videos.
