LOD Sliders

I'm considering the LOD sliders. I need to be able to use them as steps for the family. All the pictures I see of them installed it appears that they angle up instead of being straight. Is that just the picture or do they really turn up? How does that affect their use as a step?

I am also considering TNT but they are almost $100 more.

If you want something that sticks out straight, check out the ACE sliders.

They do angle up but the step is flat and level on the top, with dimpled holes for traction. Let us know if you have any other questions and we will be happy to help in any way we can.

I have the LOD sliders, they work great as steps. Big enough to put your foot on but not in the way on the trail.

I installed a set in early April. Rock solid and my wife and I (both 70+ years old) have no complaint about using them to climb in and out of the '14 JKUR. Rear passengers had no complaints either. The perforated plates used for stepping surfaces are level, as is the entire upper surface tube structure. Once installed, these feel as if they are part of the Wrangler body. These appear slim and trim and are quite stout.

I considered LOD last year when I was in search for rock sliders. I needed a step functionality as well.

I went with these because they are priced right with paint. I bought two sets of them.

The Ace and WK don't have the step plate which is not a problem for me but concerns me with passengers that don't regularly ride as their foot might slip in the gap.

David, what size lift do you have?

We have never had reports of slipping or injury. We use textured powdercote to help prevent slipping. All of our families use them daily to climb in and out of our jeeps. I think the only real risk of injury my be with pets. My son began using them at 4 years old and never came close to hurting himself.
