    Has anyone had experience with the hunter bull bar part number wt-811 or their running boards, part number bt-111e? Together with shipping the total is 290, and I wanted to know if they're were any negative reviews of these. I heard and read some of their other parts were legitimate, I just wanted to make sure. Thanks in advance

    Yeah I was just reading that, gave me the idea for hunter, but they didnt offer your models anymore, as I'm sure you knew with the bull bar, and I couldn't locate the nerf bars either. All I found were running boards and a different bull bar. I used truck gear direct and they had awesome deals, I just wanna see if they were too awesome, if you know what I mean.

    I did, however I don't like the side pieces that come out, thanks though.

    Oh and skistoy, I did see that bullbar and it did get reviewed, but I still haven't been able to find those nerf bars.

    ok i figured it out, the nerf bars that you have skistoy is only for double cab, duh... i have an access cab. the running boards are available for both models. anyone have any opinion on the running boards?

    i wish i could get those nerf bars they look like they protect a little better

    if only... no i ordered the running boards (not the nerf bars) and the super bull bar, and it was 60. I think shipping was 50 each seperately. but the total for everything was only 290

    Wow all those TSB's, dealer must like you.
    I did alot of looking before getting mine, still love them.
    The price was so good, but i was alittle worried about getting them because i never heard of them before.
    Had smittybilt prior, but so glad i took the chance.
    Cant wait to see the pics later.

    Steps have been out of stock for weeks. Im dying to get a set. Just got 1 size bigger tires on the truck and it raised it an inch or two. You wouldnt think that would make much difference...But it makes it twice as hard getting the baby in the car seat for the wife.

    I mentioned these steps and she was like..."Hell yeah, anything to help me get him in that seat. Order them TODAY."

    And just my luck...Out Of Stock.

    Figures, the one thing I want the wife doesnt put up a fight with, I cant have...lol

    Funny, I've been looking everywhere for information on this.

    What do you think about the quality of the bar (I realize it's only been in your hands for a few days)? How about fitment?

    The website said something about removing the tow hooks, although their stock picture of the bar shows a Tacoma WITH hooks. Did you have to remove yours?

    Where are the 1/2" holes for the lights at? Are they capped, or are they going to cause rusting issues?
