Sorry if it bothers anybody to post questions like this here, but I appreciate the vibe here better than some other places on the internet. What are folks’ opinions on kick-outs for sliders? I finally decided on the Caliraised Trail edition (25 degree) but can’t quite decide on the kickout or not.
I like my kickouts. Thankfully haven’t really had to use them for vehicle protection, but the added benefit of additional step up location to access roof racks, etc is really useful. I don’t see a downside to getting them.
I have those exact sliders. Love them. I recommend the kickouts.
Get the kick outs. No one ever wishes they didn’t get them. More protection, plus larger foot placement area for doing anything atop your truck.
Kickouts saved the entire rear quarter panel of my previous 3rd Gen 4Runner in a not so good situation. Highly recommend them.
Better to have them and not need them. With 25 degrees you won’t even notice them.
Agreed. A kickout helped keep me clear of a boulder as the opposite wheel slid off a rock in that direction. The other reasons mentioned also hold true, in my experience.
I like the kick outs and have used them. Work great to push me away from the rock!.
