I am not a fan of Nfab as far as steps goes but in your case I'd get Nfab over OEM

I have the N-Fabs. I really like them. I bought them to help my young son and wife get in to the truck, not for offroad protection. I doubt they would offer much, if any protection. I bout them off of Auto Anything last year with a coupon for under $300. They take about 1/2 hour to install. I went with the 2" since the 3" look too much like nerf bars for my taste.

Since you have a bull bar I would say a tube step of the same diameter as the bull bar will look the best. Something like Westin that's good quality. The N-fabs are nice, but thinner than the bull bar, so it would not match as well.

N-fab for sure. Got mine from autoanything.com I believe. Smittybuilt nfab steps. They work well non slip grip works well to. Plus they look badass IMO.

Awesome looking truck to BTW.

I have the Nfabs, the finish doesn't hold up for long. I recommend spraying them right away with bedliner if that's the route you decide to go. I like mine so much better now, but going to sell them and go with sliders.HTH

I've got the Gorhino steps and they did the same thing. After about a year I had huge chunks of paint chipping of them. I might do the bedliner as well.

I went for the Nfab's and like them a plenty. Easy to install, look great and are pretty stout. I did some meoderately agressive wheeing last summer and bashed them up real good and they still are no worse for wear although the powder coating finish did fail where they were smashed hard. I just went agro with the black electrical tape where the powder coating split and its held up fine for 6 months through all conditions, car washes and mud holes.
