    these things arrived today with a light bar and tires for my wife's Si so i had to scramble and get these installed to reduce the amount of crap in my way in my garage. the box for this and the prerunner bar were like coffins for shaquille o'neal.

    it's 2am so forgive the cell phone pics.

    they bolt to the factory step mounts, using 5 holes per side out of 6 (one hole is unused), so while they aren't traditional sliders in terms of strength they are certainly ample for protecting the body/lower doors. the clear/base that N-Fab uses when you get the option paint match is very nice. it's not perfect, per se, but it's very good quality paint especially for a tubular undercarriage piece.

    i also have the steps, but they are small so they can wait because they don't take up much room in my garage.

    I have their step bars on my truck and I really like them. Very easy to install. Yours look great!

    thanks. it's funny how much putting anything on the truck in that area highlights the silly looks of the small wheel combo.

    a spacer set to make them more flush and at least a sport or OR tire size would make it look SO much better. or, of course, a wheel set with the proper offset and bigger tires.

    when i first got them they didn't have instructions so i was wondering how they would attach to the frame, but once i realized they used the OE step holes it was a relatively quick installation. i was by myself so it took some finagling but no real issues.
