    Sliders

    Good morning fellow 120ers.

    I am after some advice / direction on which to go with some rock sliders.

    My prado currently has a 2inch lift, 275/70/70. I was out some some 4x4ing the other night, and noticed on a couple of occasions my sills came close when doing some rock steps and climbs. I never worried about it in the past as my last cruiser has 4 inch lift and 35s so sill clearance wasn't an issue.

    Sliders instantly went up the priority list. I want to keep the prado for a long time, and now tax time has come i'm looking at buying some soon.

    Powerful 4x4 and iron man sliders are around a similar price. I have read mixed reviews about both. Has anyone had any experience with these? My next option is, getting custom made. I have seen southern cross fab have a special on currently, and i can a set delivered for around the 650 mark.

    If i do get custom made, am i better to have them angled with the sill, or a straight step?

    I have been stung in the past buying cheap gear, so i want to ensure whatever sliders i get go the distance. Any input would be appreciated, or if know any fabricators who make a good slider, i am all ears.

    Cheers guys

    ARB has also finally started (about 6 months ago) doing sliders and brush bars for 120, but they are not cheap at around $1300 or so for the set (with brush bars). I will be going to the Mel 4x4 show next week, and see if I can get a discount on these. I have ARB bar.
