LOL you guys should have gone with AVID. Brandon is a former Toyota Master Tech and knows his stuff. Plus it's all hand crafted and quality assured. If ever there was a product I would bet my trucks body on was his sliders. With that said the steps are just as good and would last a lifetime.

Brandon is awesome and he was offering a great product at a great price BUT I am not in the position to spend an additional $200 to powder coat his product after spending $300 on the bars. I had to choose a product that was coated already and for $300 total I chose to go with GoRhino.

I wish I could afford the AVID products but until he offers them as a finished product at a price point that matches the market I will have to pass. Besides, GoRhino offers a 5yr warranty on their products...

Sounds like you need to find a cheaper place to have stuff powder coated... Or just spray paint it like most. Think of it this way, if you take the truck out and it scrapes or chips the powder coating at all, it's going to look like crap. Then you have to pay all that money to have it recoated. Spray paint costs $3.49 a can and looks just as good and in the long run it's cheaper than having it powder coated.

But I understand you point of view, if you don't plan on running the truck on trails much. If you ever need the protection of the sliders his are way cheaper than others out there and better quality.

I wish I could but this place is HORRIBLE on pricing for powder coating and I can not bring myself to spray paint something that is a major additions to my vehicle.

As for the quality and craftsmanship, I know there is nothing better out there then the AVID products I just cant afford to go that route (right now anyway).

Lol I hear you on the spraypaint, but it's not as bad as it sound plus its cheaper to repair than powdercoating. I don't mind it i guess...

Good luck man

Stay safe.

AND you get the sensation that you actually did more than just tighten a few bolts I ordered mine from Brandon a couple weeks ago...can't wait to get them in and get some bed liner type stuff on them.

So far I am very impressed talking with Brandon... Just put my order in for sliders and the avid bar. I will probably have them both line-xed.

I'm rocking AVID step rails. I love them. No regrets. I painted them myself. At first I thought it was going to be hard but the small surface area that you see once they are installed makes it easy to get and even coat.

After receiving the NFAB steps I must say that the quality is very nice. The powdercoat finish is beautiful and they fit wonderful. I ended up paying $296.00 out the door at 4wheelparts in Tampa.

I still would have loved to get the AVID bars but once again until I find a cheaper powdercoating shop I am going to have to pass...

Great pix everyone and thank you for input!

Yeah they were on 30 minutes after picking them up... I have been super busy this past week and have not had a chance to take any pictures. I will try and get some this week... I guess that is the hazard of working 2 jobs these days
