    Good looking truck. If I were going to put side steps on my truck I would go with something like N-Fabs or Smittybuilt. Something along those lines.

    I would seriously consider rock sliders with an integrated step instead of just steps or nerf bars. They will be much stronger and really protect the rocker panels from damage.

    I have not yet taken the plunge on them myself but when I do it will be a set of weld-on rock sliders. I would not have suffered nearly as much body damage as I did during my "incident" last Thanksgiving if I had them.

    Better investment with sliders they protect your truck and you can use them as steps

    How much do you want to spend? How are you gonna use the truck? Serious off-road or just driving around town? There are so many options...

    I have no need for sliders so Westin makes these boards. They are the best I have seen in running boards. I have a disability so these help me big time getting in the truck.

    I had Toyota side steps on my truck when I bought it..I took them off and sold them. Looks cleaner without the steps.
