    How do you guys like yours? I'm looking into getting a pair but IDK how they fit the truck and how well they work. Do they fit straight parallel with the side of the car? And how easy is the installation? Any drilling?

    I have them on my truck. It takes about 30 minutes to install them. They bold right up to the factory holes and they come will everything you need. They look good and they work great. Good luck.

    you should also look at the avid steps, both the same thing pretty much, but you may like one better than the other

    and we get 20% off through avid

    They're awesome if you don't need sliders. Installation is a 15 minute job with no drilling.

Rugged ridge isolator kit.
    I would get sliders that have a bit of a step over n fabs unless you have no need for sliders ever. My truck is 2 months old and just took them off for a wheelin trip. Not sure I will put them back on. They look great and are very functional but hang very low.

    if you want more clearance avid has sliders that act as steps and bolt on to the factory locations. (look alike sliders)

    I would definetly get them if your in cali or in a state that doesn't get a lot of salt/sand on the road in the winter.. I bought my taco last november.. The dealer threw on a set up nfab's and I just had the originals replaced last month (under warranty) they were chipping and rusting out... dealer said the manufacturer didn't do a good job of powder coating them.. I'm on my second set now and no problems... yet...

    I'd be interested in that answer. I just bought a 2012 Taco Double last week but need to get some nerfs. Dealer wanted $550 for a set & I said no way. Most online stores offer 2011 - back, but I need the 2012 if different.
