    I cannot comment on the warranty, but I have Stofpad rocksliders on mine and I cannot be happier.
    Contact Uys on the forum or via his website www.stofpad4x4.co.za you can also get from 4x4 Direct.

    The manufacturers are not interested in answering us small fish. The only answer I ever got from one was from Isuzu who wanted me to write off 4 bakkies in side impact testing - clearly the political correct way to say "not interested"

    What I can tell you is that I am not aware of any guarantee issues ever with our rock sliders fitted.
    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    Why would fitting rock sliders possibly void your warrantee, and more importantly, which part of the car?

    Genuine question.

    I don't know but it looks like anything you do to the bakkie voids some part of the warranty

    I'm done some research and allot of rock slider seem to be flush with the body I'm looking for something that works as a step aswel

    The Stofpad slider sticks out just enough to be used as a step as well. I will post a pic for you later.

    Hein,
    Ground clearance under the sides of the vehicle yes,
    BUT the Ladder Frame Cross-Member(s) and Fuel Tank is still just lower than the Stofpad Sliders.

    That is not acceptable! Please send me a WhatsApp on the number below - I would like to get it sorted for you!


    However, remember one thing - the slider will always take ground clearance. On a Amarok the underside of the body sill is more or less at the same level as the underside of the chassis - so the slider bracket has to pass underneath that - a 20mm high bracket won't carry the weight - it has to be high enough for sufficient strength.
