Rocky Road 4runner Rock Sliders are the creme' de la creme' of the rocker protection world. We use 3/16" inner hitch steel to make sure your bars do NOT bend! Anything other than hitch steel is just plain flimsy.
Most other rocker bars are made from thin 1/8" wall tube material. Alot of shops refer to these as Nerf bars. an appropriate name since they will ofer about as much protection to your vehicle as a Nerf toy product would. A good number of the Rockrails we sell are to those who have actually bought these thinner bars and have bent them up. Even slick looking dual tube designs that appear to offer better protection are still only made from 1/8" steel and will bend on a hard impact.
Rocky Road 4runner Rock sliders have a very sleek rounded look about them as we use genuine inner hitch steel in their construction. Hitch steel is not only very strong, it also has a nice radius corner instead of a hard boxy look. Inner hitch steel is the stuff you use to plug into 2" receiver hitches. Its sheer weight is astronomical as is its bending strength. Our shop press goes to 50 tons and we can't even start to bend them. Do you think a scrawny little rock can hurt these things? Think again!

Pictured at left is an example of an engineering detail of the Rocky Road 4runner Rock Slider kits over others on the market. This just helps demonstrates one of the many superior engineering points in our system.
Notice the top picture at left is a Rocky Road rock slider kit. See the beveled edge? The nice 45* ramp which would slide up and over any rock or stump on the trail? Its takes more time and effort to manufacture the kits this way, but that's all included with the Rocky Road kits.
Now take a look at the lower picture at left. This is from a competitor. Same pricing for the rocker kits, but they cut their production costs by making the end a blunt square. Run that thing into a rock and you can clearly see the trouble you will face. Its a battering ram, not a rock slider. It could stop your vehicle cold or require you to bash away until something gives. Why would they build their kits with this engineering defect? Simple... its cheaper to manufacture with the flat end, so that's what they go with.
Also notice how much further down their kit hangs. Rocky Road kits tuck up tight!
This is one easily observed engineering advantage the Rocky Road kit offers... but there are many more.
Rocky Road mounting systems are famous around the world for being the best and strongest. On the newest model Toyotas, factory mounting holes are able to be used and we take full advantage of them. On older model Toyotas though... never fear, our rockrails are very simple to install and are easy 'bolt on' with both frame and body seam mounting systems. Everyone finds Rocky Road Rock Sliders very attractive and that they blend nicely with your stock flares and moldings. Most all will run fender to fender and many folks have commented on their very OEM (factory) look. We tuck them very tight to the body to minimize the possibility of getting hung up.
All kits come in a sturdy, durable, and very attractive black powdercoat electrostatic and baked powdercoat finish.
Our 4runner Rock Sliders have been installed and reviewed always with the highest marks by offroad magazines, websites, chat forums, etc. Rocky Road Rockrails are the strongest, thickest, and most protective bars on the market, with best mounting system, and are guaranteed NEVER to bend or dent.
In a nutshell, if you want the very best, you have found it.
NOTE: We offer kits which will fit the Lexus GX460, 2nd Gen. This is currently all Lexus GX460 from 2009-2014.
These rocker bars offer all the strength and warranty of our regular Rockrails, but with the added bonus of an additional upper tube. This upper tube can provide even more protection against sliding into rocks, trees, or other trail hazards.
Everyone who has seen these on our shop 4x4s has wanted a pair. They are unequaled in strength and looks.
Picture shows 4runner Supersliders. Notice the extra side protection,
the bars stand out enough to assist with loading and unloading racks,
yet still tuck in close for optimal clearance on the trail.

They also make an excellent step for access to roof racks and such.
Some of the kits pictured above are Supersliders. Each Superslider kit mounts identical to the standard Rockrail for the vehicle. It also still features that great looking 45* front and rear edge. Not only good for looks, but alot more practical for trail use than our competition's squared off ends.
The extra slider tube up top offers additional side protection on the trail and off the trail. One of our favorite uses of the Superslider is as a bash guard against other swinging doors in a parking. Imagine the dismay of the chump who just threw open his car door only to whack it on the solid steel of your Superslider. He just stuck a nice dent in the edge of his door, your Toy still looks cherry!
Nothing protects like the Rocky Road Supersliders.
*Please note, installation of ANY true rock slider may necessitate removal or modification of stock mudflaps, trim or running boards.
