    Those are more tube steps instead of running boards. I like actual running boards myself, but so long as you like it that's what matters.

    What is the brand? These look like exactly what I'm looking for. I'd like something like the OEM boards, but in black like yours.

    I agree, they look more like tube steps than running boards, but I personally prefer tube steps. Running boards are for old men. Looks good. They look very much like Westins. :thumbsup:

    That looks to be the ones. Upon closer inspection it looks like the ends are plastic caps? Can't quite tell. If so, I'd like to keep looking.

    My neighbor recently put some 5" nerf bars on his Sierra that look almost identical to these, but the improvement is that the ends are welded metal. The welds are nice and it gives a nice, complete, clean look to the bars. I'll need to ask him again what brand he has.

    These are the Black Ionic Railway Running boards. The links posted above are accurate.

    No plastic caps on the ends. It's all one piece.
