    Cannot find anyone offering Nerf bars for the Regular Cab 4x4 (2011).

    Seems like everything is made for Extended or Double Cab

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    cool, thanks man! yeah, debating whether to get them...they seem more practical than the tube steps e.g. easier to get in and out of the truck, provides a little side protection etc. do you happen to know if these are the 2" or 3" version? and one last question, are they heavy? many thanks and excuse the newbie questions :rolleyes:

    Welcome to TW! Have you looked into sliders instead of steps?

    +1 for N-Fab. If you go to their website, you have to look under the category of "wheel to wheel". Mine are on the way, should receive them next week. Got them from truckaddons.com for $360 shipped.

    many thanks for the welcome! no, i haven't yet. i'm interested in something practical, easy for myself and passengers (including the wifey) to step in and out, lightweight, looks good, and provides some side protection :p won't be doing any serious offroading so no need for protection from big rocks or anything like that. got any suggestions? thx man!

    yeah, kinda leaning toward the n-fab. i noticed that re "wheel to wheel" and also saw that there's a 2" and a 3" version. the 3" costs a bit more but look a little nicer. are these things really heavy, i want to keep the weight down for performance :D many thx bro!

    Did I miss something?? I thought the ones for the reg cab were only available in 2" :confused:
    Anyway, it looks like I should be getting them tomorrow! Now if only I had a truck to put them on! :D

    Here's a pic of the N-Fab bars I just got today. They're not really different lengths, just the angle of the pic.

    Conjure, not to worry about weight at all, these bars are just under 11 lbs. each. Very nice looking quality and craftsmanship, although I give them major negative points for not doing mandrel bends on the ends. IMHO, this seperates the amateures from the real pros. They look like typical exhaust pipe bends, although they shouldn't be visible anyway.

    lol, my bad...a semi-thread hijack :p i'm getting a 4-banger double cab which has the option of the 2" or 3" tubes.

    thanks bro! they're lighter than i expected, good to know. however, as i'm getting a DC, these are going to be more like 20 lbs each.

    No problem Conjure, glad to do what i can :)
    Sweet! I really like the looks of the N-Fab bars on a DC.
    And yeah, that would explain the option of the 3" bars. I personally think they're overpriced for what they are, but they are great looking bars. Can't wait to get them on my truck!

    thanks bro! yeah, i agree, they're overpriced but definitely are the best looking...and appear to be the easiest for getting in and out of ur truck. don't forget to post pics after the install! :D

    I'm on my second tacoma. First was 1999 that I bought new and modded with pretty much everything at one time or another for 14 years. Toyota bought it back due to frame rust. New tacoma is exact same truck down to the black color with alpine nav/dvd, tint, de-badged, and softopper, so far.
    Just put black 3" Westin #23-3695 cab length nerf bars on my 2013 reg cab and they look great. Mounted in stock holes in 15 minutes. Found them new on ebay for $130.00.
