    Default Stofpad vs Wildog Rock Sliders

    Hi,

    I am torn between Wildog and Stofpad Rock sliders for my Ranger Dbl Cab, I know it should come down to personal preference, but was hoping to get some input from you guys that has used them and what your opinions are? I Like the fact that the Wildog has the 45-degree angle to assist my short wife to get into the vehicle, and the Stofpad also looks awesome. I could not really get much info on the weight of these rocksliders as I also don't want to weigh down my vehicle to much, as I spent 99% of the time on Tar I need to ensure that the Ford runs as efficiently as possible.

    Finally decide on Wildog's as they seem to be great quality and a bit cheaper. Might go this week to pickup a set.

    ek byt maar vas totdat ek eendag n stel van Stofpad kan bekostig maar joune lyk nie sleg nie.

    Ek sal maar persoonlik eerder n stel van "taktlose" Uys sn vat.....

    Na n hele paar trails, en ek is nog 100% happy met die Wildog sliders. Het gesukkel om die middelste mounts was te kry, maar toe het Wildog my uit gehelp met dit. Ek moet sę dat ek nog nie n dag spuit is oor die rock sliders nie. Dink definitief dat dit n moet is as mens will gaan speel. Het my trokkie al menige kere gered.

    What's the difference between rock sliders and side steps?!

    Side steps are as the name implies, you use them to step into the vehicle. Cosmetically they may look better and are typically OEM supplied, but offer little or no protection to the vehicle.

    Rock Sliders are there to protect the vehicle in offroad situations and some have small steps to assist in getting into the vehicle. Manufactured aftermarket from much tougher material (steel) and in some cases have hi-lift jack points as well for recovery purposes.

    Should also add that the way you attach a good rock slider to a vehicle is very different to the way OEM side steps attach to some manufacturer vehicles. In the case of Stofpad and Wilddog Rock Sliders they attach directly to the frame of the chassis. Whereas for example on the Fortuner the side steps are mounted to very thin mounting points.

    This means you can actually put the weight of the vehicle on the rock slider and there should be little to no damage. Whereas on a side step you would throw it away after doing the same.
