Looking for suggestions

Just recently bought a 2013 SR5 4x4, and I'm looking for side steps and bull bar. I have been looking around at this site and all others, autoanyhting, carid, amazon, ect...
I want to get stainless steel and looking at ovals rather than straight steps or running boards. Should I go OEM for re-sell value? Or does that even matter (due to most trade-in value doesn't increase on options). I was looking at Steelcraft cheap and still look good, Aries are ok but not sure of the look. I like the Go Rhino's but bit expensive. Westin I just don't like the name every where on their products. Any suggestions would be great... I need to get side steps soon got 2 boys, 5&6 yrs old and don't want them to keep grabbing at the seat belts to get them up in the ride. Thanks for the info.

The OE tube steps are OK for kids, but my foot didn't fit on them. They also started to rust out on me in less then 2 years so I would avoid them.

I strongly suggest checking this out http://www.avidoffroad.com/#

The Avid steps wouldn't work with kids all I see is feet and legs going through the open space causing unneeded crying. I guess is the size a big deal between the 3, 4, or 5" oval bars? Any experiences with different brands that maybe helpful? Thanks again

I've got some 4 inch oval steps I'm looking to sell if you want used, they're black but are stainless steel underneath.
