    I really like these!

    Anyone have them on their taco?

    Would this be a 'bolt on' job?
    Or more advanced?

    Thx

    those look like N-fabs. the main tube looks small as there seems to be a large gap between the main tube and cab. Go for N-fab. they have a 3" maintube that fills the gap from what i've seen from others here. and the price might be cheaper.

    they seem to be a one piece bolt on like nfabs too.

    I have the Predators on my 09 DC TRD. I got them installed at the port before delivery to the dealer. I do like them, powder coated and seem well made. My wife does like them because of the drop down, easy for her to use. The Tacoma (with stock wheels/tires) is not difficult for me to get into without the bars, but the wife likes the assist. I can say, that with traditional running boards that fit tight to the rocker panel, I would not use either; however, with the drop down steps I do use these.

    I ordered these the other day. I have them waiting for me at home. As soon as I go on leave in 3 weeks I will be putting them on. I will be more than happy to show some pics on here when that day comes. I kind of like the gap between the truck and the bar myself.

    Is there any installation or can you just bolt on using pre-designed opening?
