HELP!
Your current steps are functional in that they protect the sides of the truck from objects kicked up from your front tires. As far as steps, check out NFab or Avid Offroad
steps for something that has an actual step a little lower. Rust is a concern with anything steel but, if properly coated and protected, you will be fine. Personally, I live in the salt belt so I went with stainless steel bars by Hunter. They've helf up perfectly for about 5 years now.
