    Ok so i used to have these OEM step bars on my silver 06, and i kept them and threw them onto my timberline 2010, but i'm not sure if i like them or not...i'm thinking of going with black NFabs....what do you guys think? forgot to add i'm most likely going to be blacking out my badges as well...u think it would look too much if i were to do the badges gunmetal to match the fj rims?

    here is what it looked like stock....

    I really like my N-Fabs

    4wheelparts.com has a local store that I called on a Friday. They were shipped to the store and ready to be picked up on Monday. I could of had them dropped shipped to my house for an extra $30.

    Your truck looks very good. I would go gunmetal badges and black tube or running boards. By the way your truck looks really good I like it a lot. What size tire do you have on there? Also is it lifted or not?

    i bought a double cab b/c i needed one, kind of tough to get a car seat
    in a regular cab, or much else for that matter. i can't imagine having one on a long trip in a rain storm. i have a family and need the room.

    thanks for the comments. Well as of now no lift yet. That's one of my final projects mostly because I can't decide if I wanna go 5100s again or an OME this time around. The tires are actually 265/75/16. I think the fj crusier rims make the tires look alot mor agressive size wise then they r to me at least. Btw I got the nfabs on so I'll post some pics after I was it today. I love the look of em but Im not sure I'm in love with their functionality yet.
