    Yeah if you actually hit a rock on one of the stock skids, you'll see how thin it is. Look for some beefy 3/16" to 1/4" thick skids. I'll be making some pretty soon.
    As for sliders, they're a great investment! Protect the rockers/doors offroad, and also help fend off carelessly swung car doors and shopping carts at the mall. I make sliders as well, could probably hook you up with a bit of a deal on a set of returned sliders coming back to my shop in the next week or two(nothing wrong with them, just sent the wrong set to a customer in Hawaii on accident).
    An aftermarket should not affect air bag depoloyment, they're inertia sensors like max said. You can find them under the hood on the inner fenderwell under the battery on the driver side, and under the air intake on the passenger side.

    Yeah I'd love to know how much you'd charge with installation and all that, for the sliders, probably a rear bumper and front bumper or grill if that's what you do. I drive an 03 xtracab.

    Hs rear bumper is nice looking. I believe it's around $600 and he can add probably anything you want for more.
    i believe most front bumpers start around $900.

    Sliders I can do $300+$75 for the install(weld on). The rear bumpers I make start at $600, and the fronts run at $750+ depending on the options you choose. I could probably work a bit of a deal if you wanted all 3 items for you rig; Maybe free install on it all or something.

I don't know how difficult the trip is to hunter lake, but I was extremely impressed with my truck. the clearance, the traction and the power made it an almost effortless cruise up there. I had stock tires, and kept it in 4h the entire time, taking different loops and routes to get there. I did lose a mudflap on that nasty set of rocks on the trail that loops to the left, near hunter lake. fortunately, my truck's frame was protected by the mudflap, when it got pinched between the rock and the truck.
    Bottom line, that trail was a fantastic variety of terrains for my tacoma, and I was extremely impressed with how well it managed, with a 4x4 novice behind the wheel.
    lesson learned though, next time tell someone where you're going! if i had eviscerated my truck on those rocks, it'd be a fun hike back.
    Did you mean you kept it in 4-Lo or 4-Hi the entire way up?
