    There I was wondering why they looked a little wavy on top. Looked underneath and they are rotted out and almost gone. Guess I should look under it more often.

    yeah the steps on my 2010 rotted away. There was nothing left so I pulled them.

    I know I’m the rare one that likes the oem ones but I think it’s time for terrafirma sliders

    Yep - that's what mine look like. It must be time more than anything - I'm a '13 as well. I went the cheap route for now and bought the non-OEM equivalents that claim to be Aluminum. I wanted to go with sliders but in reality this ride hasn't been offroad more than a gravel road or farm trail every so often. I have yet to get my toy LR3 for that fun. ;)

    Well, they're knockoffs so $108 shipped. I expect that a few hours on my back and I'll be able to swap them out for nothing. If they suck I didn't get pulled in too far that I'm losing much by risking it.

    Here they are: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254341130393

    They showed up today and lo and behold a magnet sticks to them as I suspected they would. I will get some pics later but if I didn't know any better these are the exact item as OEM with the exact same hardware.

    Needed a pneumatic hammer to rip the stock ones apart as the bolts snapped or wouldn’t spin free. Huge mess. Replacements fit right on the oem brackets.
