    Have a pair myself, they're great in the parking lot. Usually somebody's door will hit the railing before hitting actual truck. I also like these because they're pretty functional; you can actually place your foot comfortably to step up.

    Had some help from my dad and brother. The whole process took about an hour. Those brackets could use some redesign, but after figuring it out it took no time to install them. Maybe 15 minutes a side

    Just installed mine today. Turned out nice. I ordered the poly step pads as well.

    The bracket bolts were a bit of a struggle until i found a pivoting ratchet and was able to tighten.

    Mine came in green and clear bags for brackets and rails, i used green on driver side

    Does anyone know where to get the wiring harnesses for the LED lights or pictures? I have seen a couple trucks with the lights mounted under the truck but not on the actual steps.

    Was looking at some N-Fab steps and ran across these. Glad I did, I like the design and I found them on EBay for $267 to my door. Will have them in time to install next weekend.

    Finally had time to install them. What a stupid design to have the two bolts to the steps so close together. There is room to spread them out so you could actually fit a socket on. Everything was easy to install except trying to tighten the bolts from bracket to steps once installed.

    Pretty happy with the look and quality for the price paid. I even got the pads with my order, which I would not paid for. Installed them since they came with them. May still remove them and use some grip tape instead. The pads are very shiny and slippery, maybe that will go away after a little use.

    Did you have to buy the rubber steps separate? If so are the on Amazon?

    I’ve seen them sold on Amazon, mine came when I ordered the steps from an eBay seller. I didn’t think they would come with the steps as they are normally sold sperately.

    C83D4EE8-5893-4B44-9171-34AD11406BC6.jpg Just installed these today. For a STEP, they really are stout! Perfect for what I need, my truck sees some pretty gnarly hunting roads, but I’m not bouncing through rock gardens. For $300 and a little over an hour on a cold day, I am very pleased.
