Honestly I don't...I had Westins that I destroyed offroading. They were nice but I got rock sliders after that. Try this link and maybe you'll see a style you like. I also got a military discount for recent purchases.

I've been happy with the oem running boards but I don't off road. I'm mechanically challenged and it was an easy install, if I remember correctly there were either 3 or 6 bolts per side, no problem with holes not lining up. I previously had a 2002 tacoma with the oems and after 9 years I had no regrets. If you go oem check with tw vendor and there are several online vendors, shop/price them.
