Well I found 1 thread similar to what I am asking here. I have decided to purchase step rails (drop cut outs) from either AVID or NFab. The ones from NFab are less expensive (free shipping / $310.00 price) and already have a painted finish but AVID is a thicker rail.
I was able to see a set of NFab's installed today on an access cab. From what I could tell they appeared to be sitting further away from the frame/body than I liked.
I am hoping someone has pictures of both types installed on a double cab.
I would like to see how far away from the bottom of the cab they sit (I hope that makes sense).
Hopefully I can make a purchase in the next week...
Thank you in advance for anyone posting!
