Onca Off-Road Rock Sliders

Vehicle: Hilux Vigo Legend 45

Anton Willemse
One of the many casualties of my Baboon’s Pass trip a couple of months back was the stock side steps on my Hilux Legend 45. They received a proper hammering from the rocks of Lesotho and were badly out of shape at the end of this trail.

These steps are bolted partially to the body of the Hilux and were never designed to take this kind of punishment. I knew this at the time of heading up the trail, but decided that damaged side steps were preferable to body damage. Not an easy decision!
