These are the ones used as OEM in the Souther States Toyota dealers It's a package only available in those states. Runningboard warehouse sells them as well but you have to call them. Ask for Stuart.

Do the OEM tube steps and the running boards mount to the cab (rocker panel) or to the frame?

Rocker panel.
Look under your truck, you should see 3 pairs of black plastic tabs. Those pop off and the bolts hold the boards in place.

Do you guys recommend installing these step bars on your own, or having them installed? Are certain steps more difficult to install than others?

Do it yourself!!! Very easy. No point in paying to have it done, unless you don't like laying under your truck I did mine in less than 30 min start to finish by myself

Does anyone like these Westin E-Series?
http://www.4wheelparts.com/Diesel-Pe...3184&t_pl=6674

Or the Signature Series?
http://www.4wheelparts.com/Diesel-Pe...3184&t_pl=4693

What's the difference? It looks like the Signature Series say they fit the O.E. mounting points...but why the price difference?
