Rock Sliders | 10-24 4Runner

(16 customer reviews)



The rocker panel is the most vulnerable area on your vehicle when off-road, as well as one of the most costly to repair. Protect your investment with a pair of RCI heavy-duty 4Runner rock sliders.

RCI sliders utilize a full frame support mounting plate which serves both to protect your frame from damage, as well as provides an extremely rigid attachment for the sliders by using multiple bolt locations all across the frame.

These will help protect the truck off-road and in the parking lot, and are still very functional as a step if needed.

    I was at Overland Expo Mtn West and checked out RCI booth. To my surprise and good luck, they had a set of 4Runner (2022) rock sliders in-stock and I grabbed it 🙂 :). Installation is breeze and once the Slider is aligned to frame, everything makes sense. Floor jack and a single person job. So far very happy with installation and looks. Decent kickout for my kiddo to get into. Yet to test it on-rocks. Tons of bolts go into frame so no concerns over there. Strongly recommend the product.

    Just purchased rock sliders for my wife’s 2018 4 runner. The black finish was great. Im no welder, but you can look at the beads and tell there is quality in the welds. the fitment was spot on when it came to installing all the bolts and the install took less than an hour. Its an amazing product.
    But the biggest praise I have is the service.
    These things have some gravity in them and the delivery man was not up to the challenge. I believe he dropped one box onto the other when delivering. these parts are packaged well but one of my top tread plates took some damage. I called RCI and the gentleman that answered was very professional.
    With a 5 minute phone call and a few pictures emailed, a new part was shipped out. RCI made a great product and backed it 100%, and in todays world of online ordering that is paramount.

    Let’s start with shipping. Said 8 weeks out and arrived in 3 days which was obviously an awesome surprise! One box was beat up but the sliders were perfect and well packaged.

    These are very well built and the powder coat is legit. I was able to get 23 of the 24 bolts in which is pretty impressive build quality if you ask me. There was literally no holes for the 24th bolt on my rig. These are heavy so use stands or something to help hold them up. The 5 degree you can easily install as high as they can go with zero clearance issues. Total install was about an hour by myself.

    Lastly before you pull all your frame plugs out, roughly align the sliders. You do not need to pull them all out. Might as well leave what you can in place.

    Awesome product, I have zero doubts they will perform extremely well and look damn good doing it!

    Solid rock sliders but was a bit disappointed because I thought the top plate came welded as most YouTuber videos showed them coming in as welded instead of bolted (main reason why I chose RCI).

    I bought these several years ago. Been happy with them since. Very happy with them today. A RAV4 hit me in the driver’s side door this afternoon. These sliders took the brunt of the hit. They caused his vehicle to slide across mine instead of smash the driver’s side door in. Saved the vehicle (doesn’t look like any frame damage, but the shop will check) and possibly me.

    Mounted on a 2010 4Runner Trail Edition 3 inch lift. Top notch quality and craftsmanship. Fit is excellent, easy install and the 20 degree angle is spot on. 1/2 inch of rear door clearance. Everything from RCI I have put on my rig is genuine quality and packaged very nicely. Install tip- 3/8 air ratchet and your done in 30 minutes.

  7. Lance (verified owner)

    The standard 20 degree RCI rock sliders are so well made (DOM steel), and they look fabulous. Best bang for the buck in my opinion. My wife and I installed them in about 2 hours on my 2021 4Runner Off Road Premium. The fit was perfect, all of the screw holes lined up without having to maneuver the sliders. I was really surprised, figured if I ran into any difficulty, I could always have them professionally installed. RCI Metal Works is a great American business.

  8. Tom M (verified owner)

    After doing LOTS of research, the RCI Sliders became the obvious choice.

    Well made. Solid. Durable. Good looking.

    What a great transaction and speedy shipping. I installed the 5 degree sliders on our 21 4Runner myself without any issues whatsoever. Fantastic quality in every detail. RCI will be my go to company for these such items.

    Bought in 2018 with factory powder coat finish. Vehicle has not been offroad and within 6 months powder coat began bubbling and rust formed under the power coat finish where the top plate is welded to the round bars. This premature powder coat failure is usually a result of poor metal prep prior to power coat! My rock sliders are now more brown than black and the powder coat is peeling where the top plate meets the round bars. Wish I had not paid for the powder coat as now I’ll have to pay someone to blast and re-powder coat my bars.

    Will be posting this on Google and Yelp.

      Hi Dale thank you for your feedback and I apologize for your experience with the powdercoating!

      We built a brand new manufacturing plant in 2018 in order to take control of all manufacturing processes in-house, and particularly paint which was outsourced at the time. Unfortunately your order was just prior to this upgrade and again I apologize for this. That said, we have experienced no paint related warranty issues in over 2 years and have not only squashed any potential powdercoat concerns, we have ensured that we are the ABSOLUTE BEST in the industry.

      Please feel free to reach out to us at 970-797-3089 and we would love to see how we can improve your experience with RCI.

    Went with these due to the reputation and quality of this company. When I opened the box, they exceeded my expectations. Thanks RCI for your outstanding quality. Well worth the price. I was nervous about the welds as I am a welder, and very picky, but wow whoever you guys have welding gets an A+ In my book. Thanks RCI. Great company, well shipped, amazing quality.

    Very easy install. Easy to figure out without instructions. On the driver’s side you need to pop off the brake line bolt (initially forgot to do this as I was getting it in place), but after that simply line up and bolt into place and level it. Just did them on my 21 4Runner. Very solid attachment, lots of bolts going into the frame, so I’m not concerned at all about the ability of these to hold the weight of the vehicle.

  13. Edgar (verified owner)

    Got my sliders today for my 4Runner 2020, it took about a week to get them.
    The install was very easy, around 1h40min ( I did it alone)
    I’m very happy with the quality of the sliders, the powder coating is flawless. Can’t wait to get to the trail and give em a try.
    The sliders didn’t provide any instructions, but like I said it’s extremely easy to install and everything makes sense once they are aligned with the frame.
    I used couple of hydraulic jacks to put them into place.

  14. Ken G (verified owner)

    Received my sliders in less than two weeks. Installation was simple. Recommend using a hydraulic jack. Looks fantastic on my 2016 4Runner!

    Just installed mine. 2020 4Runner off road premium non KDSS. Packaging was very nice. Boxed well and protected on all corners in the box. Install and fitment was perfect. I was amazed at how well they fit. No grinding needed on any bolt holes and exact amount of hardware included. Very well built, welds are very nice. I think a very worthy addition for protection. Protrudes from the side just enough to protect all the vulnerable areas but not too much to detract from clearance. Very nicely designed and made. I could not be happier. Install took about half hour a side by myself. I just propped them up on jack stands until I could get the first few bolts installed. then all other bolts went in perfectly. The mounting holes are oblong so you can adjust height a small amount for variance in vehicles. I was able to mount mine as high up as holes alowed and my doors clear perfectly. Very well done RCI!

    Recently received the 5 degree coated rock sliders for my 2019 4Runner TRD Off Road,
    and had them installed today.
    The install was done at the shop that I use for all automotive work.
    3 auto techs commented as follows: “Great quality and workmanship”
    The sliders fit exactly and the install time was approximately one hour.
    I will provide further input once I have some off road experience with the sliders.
