    I dont really "like" any of the boards i have seen, but my girl and my kids have trouble getting in my truck... i can't decide on style and chrome vs black... need some opinions, post pictures if you can.

    Here is my truck:

    Yea that truck looks familiar ;)

    Toyota sells a bar (predator) that is really similar to those nfab and avid. I wish i could see the 3" nfab in person on a taco.

    And I wouldn't mind seeing some chrome/polished options.

    Hopefully more pics will come flowing in.

    I don't have a picture,but i like the chrome /flat ones with the black ribbed non-skid strips. I am biased to chrome and your truck would look great with some chrome between those awesome wheels.

    What I meant by local pickup was that I'm in the Houston area OP. Cheap cheap no pay ship none. I'll even meet up and letcha bolt one on and see if you like them first.

    I think black N fabs would look best. They're functional and don't take away from the look of the truck.

    You know, I am leaning towards Toyota predators, I just found out they are Nfab without the logo. However, it looks like these GoRhinos hug closer to the body and hide more of the frame / brackets ... do you have any other shots?
