    I am looking to buy nerf bars / step up bars for my 2010 TRD Sport 4 Door, which are the best brands/models? Where to get them?

    Thanks for your input. Please post pics if you have them.

    Check out runningboardwarehouse.com. I just bought a pair of Challenger 5" for my new 2010 TRD Sport access cab. Price was good and they have several different brands and styles. Excellent customer service. My Challenger's were also very easy to install with no drillling.

    BTW once you decide on what you want. Check ebay you mihght find them a little cheaper. Runningboardwarehouse also has ebay sales.

    most popular brand seems to be westin, but you can find others a lot cheaper than that.

    dooooohhh...where'd you get them for $260! I just ordered set for $367 from runningboard world...exact same for dc and black. Free shipping at least...

    And to answer the question...yes, they come in polished stainless too. Or custom painted to match if you want! extra cost for both (or either, as it were.)

    Thinking of going with the N-Fab bars, since majority have the the tubular bars...

    cannot say enough about my sliders (they also do step bars) from avidoffroad - They were $330 delivered. The catch is you get to paint them yourself. I get you could get them Chromed if you wanted too as well....

    I agree 100%. I have shrockworks sliders. They are stronger then nerf bars, can be used as a step, offer great protection, and can be used with a hi-lift jack. I would never get anything else

    The N-Fabs are side-steps that provide a nice tight tucked look unlike running boards but bolt to the cab mount points.

    Sliders (I think) bolt to the frame so that hits are not transferred to the cab doing damage to the sheet metal.
