N-Fab Nerf Steps...2" or 3"...help me decide

OK, I have already done a ton of searching on these steps. I just want some personal views on them.

I have a set of ABS (plastic) Railway side steps that have cracked and I want to replace them with something more substantial. 99% of my driving is on road, so I'm not looking at sliders.

I like the look of the 3" tubes...it looks like it fills in the gap between the body and the tube better. However, it looks like more people have gone with the 2" tubes.

For those of you that have the 2" tubes, why do you like them and do you regret not getting the 3"?

If you have the 3" tubes, why did you decide to get them instead of the 2" tubes?

I have read several times that the 3" tubes don't look as good unless the truck is lifted. I plan on a small lift in the future...but running stock suspension right now.

What do you think?

"fill the ugly void" we call that ground clearance around here

Looks nice

I have the 2" N-fabs. The 3" look like they may set closer to the truck. I didn't want them at all but wifey needed to get in truck.

I have the 2" and I really like them. The 3" tubes look too big to me. I have no regrets.

Can't decide either. The 2" are cheaper and seems you could clean better between them and the truck. Any thoughts?
