    Anyone have pics of their truck with the OEM side bars? I've seen a couple pics and like the fact that they seem like they stay pretty tight to the body. I've tried searching the net a bit for more info on them but haven't found much. Thanks

    Been looking around a bit more. What about Aries tube steps? Anyone have experience with these? Looks like the 3" black bars for the d cab are about half what the oem ones cost.

    Who makes these? I need something similar for my Tacoma and my Tundra had some similar to this in chrome with black step sections and while I wasn't a fan of the chrome I liked the design. These look sharp!

    My 2011 TRD Off Road Tacoma came with the NFab steps OEM. They don't say NFab though.

    I just bought a brand new Tacoma DC - although mine is a 2011. It came with the factory tube steps and for the 3 weeks I have owned the truck - I hate them. They are TOO close to the truck and TOO high. It is very awkward getting in/out with these steps. Everyone who gets in also comments on how weirdly they are placed. [​IMG]

    These look exactly like what I had on my Tundra. Not sure the angle/height was the same though because they worked quite well for getting into and out of the truck.

    Thanks for the pics guys. I like the look of the oems but I went ahead and ordered a set of 3 in. Aries side steps. Trdparts4u was the only place I could find the oems and they were around 300. I got the Aries for 170 shipped. Guess we'll see how they look when they show up!

    They don't make the oem silver ones anymore, right? I guess the black ones will do if I can't find the silvers for sale.
