Tube Steps...

My Toyota dealer wants $540 installed for 2009 D-Cab long bed silver tube steps. Can you help me find some cheaper? Thanks!

Try 'Toyotapartsstore.com'.

They sell for $303.24 plus shipping.

Not sure what shipping is but i bought them from the dealer for $400.00 and put them on myself in about 1/2 hour. They came with the mounting brackets already secured to the steps. I put a box under the opposite end while i was loosely securing the other end. Went back to the box supported end and loosely secured that end, then the center. (Pre-existing holes) Then secured them all.

I am in the rust belt, so i greased up the bolts / threads and bracket contact points for rust prevention before securing the brackets to the underside.

Slice of pie, er, i mean, piece of cake and not worth $140 labor. Thats nuts.

I bought my set from that ebayer - I had no problems - they arrived on time. I installed them myself (took about 45 min)

Hi Tacoma -09

Do happen to know what make tube steps you got and how much they ran?

Are you happy with them?

Hi - No idea - there was nothing written on the box. Yes I am happy with them. I had no issues installing them either.

Go with the N-Fabs ...performance4trucks.com (which is basically 4wheelparts).....I paid $279 ($302 OTD) and they shipped them to the store near my house.

Thanks guys! I got a set from the Toyota Parts Store - 2009 Dbl Cab long bed silver tube steps for $366 (includes shipping). I have used Toyota Parts Store for everything now (all-weather mats, hood protector, tube steps) and have had a good experience with them so far.

Thanks for your help!
