    I've been on the fence about nerf bars too. There are so many to choose from!

    I was never really a fan of the N-Fab type, but after seeing Nathan's AVID step bars in his recent thread, I'm rethinking that stance. I really like the looks of this style. I originally liked the OEM style, but not so much anymore.

    I like and bought the stock ones. Some of the aftermarket ones supported here are nice but in my opinion only look good with a lift.

    I went cab length N-Fab bars on my Tacoma, check out my build page for pics. I thought the wheel to wheel just looked a little off.

    EDIT : Did a crappy photo chop to extend the nerf bar in the 2nd pic.

    Those are Gear Alloy Double Pumps. They take a while to clean, but are worth it.

    IMO if you are going to get nerf bars, I would go 4" - the 1 inch makes a big difference in looks, and the 3" ones I have seen leave a big gap between the bar and the truck cab where you could get your foot caught if you slip - not good for SWMBO getting in with heels and a dress (and that is when she needs the step)

    I just took my Black Westin Platinum Series bars off, and am selling them if you want. I just got some sliders, so i dont need the nerf bars any more.

    If your question has not been answered, I say go with the 3" ovals.

    I put Aries black 4" ovals on my 08 DC 4x4 Sport, and IMO they are a bit too big for a mid-sized truck.

    I like them, but if I had to make the purchase again, I'd go with the 3" ovals.

    I love the way those look, I'm just trying to find a set around that price that will fit my 06 Pre Runner Access Cab. It looks like those only work for the 4 doors. I'll do some more digging around online, but if you know of a place that has those same kind but for an Access Cab lemme know please!!!!!! :)

    For those who have the ebay nerf bars, how was the install? Do they bolt on to the factory mounting points?

    Friends don't let friend buy nerf bars.
    I got them from the dealer when i got the truck for my son.
    I wish every day i would have gotten sliders or nfabs.
