What are good looking side steps?

Starting to look into side steps for my 2012 double cab. Any recommendation or product to stay away from?

If your planning on doing any offroading, take a look at Rock sliders. But otherwise I like N-Fab bars

BAMF rock sliders with filler plates

Will take the abuse of off roading but still function as steps.

I like the factory steps but they are not sliders by any means. Just look good and give short people some help getting in.

These are factory from Toyota? I've never seen these. Any links to get a better look?

I just put GO RHINO Dominator II's on my '13. They had removable cleats which I plan to take off and spray with bed liner and add some sand for grit.

If you don't offroad then you don't need sliders. So I would say either nfabs or the OEM running boards (http://trdparts4u.toyotaofdallas.com...dproduct=31714) look the best. Nfabs are really popular.

OEM running boards. IMO they look good, provide a place to step, & protect truck.

Any pics of these and where do you order from?

Those are nice but they still sit up high, I needed the drop downs for my little kids. Also, I just priced them and came out to about $450.
