    So finally after almost a 2 month wait my dealer called on Friday to advise that my Nfabs had arrived!!

    I dropped my vehicle off this morning to get them installed and when I went to pick them up this evening I thought wow they look fatter than i expected.

    They ordered the 3inch ones not the 2 inch ones :(

    I never specified 2 inch but showed them a picture of the 2 inchers.

    I live in Canada and these things are a pain to get here!

    Would do you think I should do considering I paid around 700cdn for them.

    I think they look too fat!

    I'll post pics in a bit.

    I think those look sweet!

    I would keep them If were u...

    But I think if you had some beefy tires with that set-up it would look even sweeter

    You paid $700 Cdn with the dollar at par ? Where did you get them , I paid less than that for the stainless Nfabs last year with the dollar at 80 cents US ,

    BTW , they look fine , leave them on ,

    Wow I payed the same price for my Shrockworks sliders and had the same wait time.

    That being said, I do think it looks great. I would keep them and avoid all the hassle.

    Well the Dealership is being really good about it and ordered the correct ones the next day, they are going to take 4 weeks to get here, in the meantime im starting to like these but they still look a little too fat, im worried these wont match the avid road bar im going to be getting, i think the 2 inchers will be more closely matched.

    Do the 2 inch steps stick out as far?

    I think the 2 " steps would stick out about the same , maybe slightly less due to the size difference in the main tube .

    Are you getting these sent up from the States , because they could be had in stock in Canada when I got mine .
