Side steps/sliders

Hope I'm in the right site to ask this question. If not then yell and scream...

After a 3'' lift it's become apparent that a step would be handy to access my truck. Sucks being short sometimes....I checked out Avid Offroad 1 3/4" tubular side step which suits my needs perfectly. Though I don't really flex my truck, having the Avid Offroad style step bar would work better than nerf bars and plastic steps - they're ugly and look like crap.
Without viewing all 30 plus vendors listed on this site, anyone recommend a particular vendor or is Avid Offroad the way to go?

Thanks for any suggestions!

I live in the Tucson area also and I have read nothing but good things about Avid. That's were I plan on getting my slidders.

Vail huh? Houghton and Bilby for me. You answered one of my concerns - if Avid was a good company to order from and receive the product in a reasonable time frame.
Anybody else share their experience with Avid?

I'm ordering the step slider from Avid Offroad next week (9/4). They meet my needs and also afford additional protection for light off-roading. Avid is located in Gilbert - when completed I'll drive there (1 1/2 hr) - and pick them up. Will save $$$ on shipping. I'll keep you informed on the process.
