    I have narrowed down my choices after looking at about 100 different side steps, running boards, rock rails, etc.

    I am going to either pick up the black side step or running boards. What do you guys think. Picture of either on a 05+ white access sport would be most helpful, but im sure other colors/style will also help.

    Personaly I think the toyota boards suck, they sit to high on the body and can trip on them getting in and out of your truck. I have steps from Nfab and I love them. They're great for me cause my truck is lifted. In the pic they're muddy but you can still see the style of the steps.

    I have considered the NFAB's but im running stock lift and I dont like the look on the access cab. Looks pretty sweet on your truck though.

    Good info Oswego, I have been reading through the threads you posted up. It would be sweet if I could get a set welded on. I dont have much experience welding so Id have to get that done as well as paint.

    I saw CBI's bolt ons, but its a steep price right now. Looks like I missed all the good pricing by a little over a month. I am new here so I will just have to keep at it and make some friends. Thanks for all the good info thus far.
