    Could anyone please let me know how easy (or hard) it is to install the OEM tube running boards on a 2010 Tacoma? Will there be a need to drill or do they bolt to existing holes?

    Thank you

    Butter. Pay attention to side and position markings for all brackets and tubes and you will not have any trouble. Pay attention to torque values so you do not stress bolts or threads in body, just in case you want to remove them later. Tighter is not better.


    I suggest anti-sieze on the bolts and I also put a light coat of "Rite-Stuff" on the contact areas to protect the paint. (Under the bracket where it bolts to the body. Like a rubber gasket from a can) Get everything in place and finger tight before you start locking everything down. Helps prevent stress and helps with good alignment. Recheck the bolts in 3-5K miles to verify they are still secure.
