    Guys,
    Ive got a silver 2010 4-door long bed. Im looking to add step rails and low profile tool box, at the least. Whats everyone's opinion on what color to go with? Chrome or black?

    I assume that you dont want to mix colors. I have read that chrome tool boxes can cause reflection problems. That makes me think black is the way to go. And if mixing is bad, i would assume that means i would go with black step rails / running boards.

    Thoughts? Pics?

    Jeff

    I see many of the older guys here with a lot of chrome accessoires (door handles, bug deflectors, window visors, etc) I think too much chrome accessoris look horrible. But if done right, they look great. However, i like black stuff better

    Black should look nice with silver. Plus if you scuff it, you can do a quick paint touch up.

    Sliders are much stronger than steps. They're designed to take a heavy hit (rocks). Side steps would just dent and fold. As Oswego mentioned, they're strong enough to jack the truck up with, using a high lift jack.

    Here are some CBI sliders with a kickout at the back (not my truck). I have some without the kickout that I need to put on.

    My vote is for black.
    As far as chrome toolboxes causing reflection problems, I don't think its an issue with a double cab. I had em in my single cab ford and it definately put a good reflection in the cab of the truck, when I got an extra cab, the reflection wasn't noticeable.

    For the OP, Nerf bars are step bars and not sliders.
