    $40 for my 9 month old NFABS. These were installed on my AC but are the same step as for DC's so can be installed on both (at least according to what I was told by AutoAnything and N-FAB).

    FULL DISCLOSURE HERE: Installed these last summer. I went off roading and realized that these were a mistake for me because they seemed to grab every rock on the trial. These have been replaced with sliders from AVID now.

    The steps are 100% perfectly functional but are certainly not perfect from a cosmetic standpoint. They were bashed around and the undersides are scratched up. The tops which are visible are fine. I wrapped a bunch of colormatched black electrical tape around the worst of it on the passenger side step to seal them against the elements. That proved fine and the tape functioned perfectly. In fact the tape is only noticable if one looks directly at it. A direct impact to front of this passenger step caused a slight bend in the mounts but not the steps themselves which are perfectly straight. The net result is that the passenger step bar is displaced by roughly 1/2 inch towards the rear. It does NOT affect the mounting or fit whatsoever and the steps themselves are perfectly straight side-to-side and front-to-back to my eyes.

    If you need functional steps, like the N-FABS, like 'em cheap and come pick them up in Yuba City (NOR CAL), they are yours for $40. I have all of the stainless mounting hardware. Installation is a breeze. I did them myself in 20 minutes. Here are pics of the steps PLUS pics of them installed on my truck AFTER the damage so you can see that it does not really negatively affect the look at all.

    No way I will incur the inconvenience of shipping these for the $40 price I am asking. I am not set up as a vendor with the packaging materials. Gotta pick em up guys.

    First with $40 at my door gets 'em.

    They won't fit a double cab! I called n fab about this. They say the tabs are about a half inch apart. Do not mean to rain on anyone's parade but I did call and ask.
