Running boards

I am thinking about getting a pair, but don't know what kind I want. Was wondering if people would post pics of various kinds so I can decide what style I think looks best. Running board or tube pics please.

Thanks in advance.

I;ve got the Toyota 'black plastic' ones, I really like them. They protect teh truck body, aren't too wide and go with the rest of teh blacked out stuff (mirrors, handles, etc on teh truck.

I have the flat black step style. Love them. Only drawback is that one time I went through a ditch and the boards bent up and pinned my door shut.

Where did you get these from? These are the ones I'm wanting to get. Just a website or something would work.

ATS UNI II, gives shorter folks a step in and protects from some splashing. No structural protection with this type of steps.

I'm very curious about these:

Hard to beat the price for $119, and they come with a 5 year warranty.

For any of you 40 plus year olders, the Factory Running Boards are perfect for us.

Where did you get these?

I'm looking for a board or the chrome OEM-style nerf bar that would give a little protection plus be a good step, my father in law is disabled and rides in my truck regularly. I tried the side-step kind that have a step down lower but they just confuse him quite honestly.

Disagree, as they don't protect the truck when I'm off road. Yes, I'm over 40 ... way over.
