    On my 96 - I had a set of square tube sliders that I used as a step.

    I'd love to have a set like that on my 07.

    Bentup makes a set of square tube sliders like the ones I had....
    Mine are tucked closer into the truck than these are....

    I loved the step especially for washing the truck. I could wash the windshield, hood, roof, and cab windows by using those sliders as steps.

    I don't have any pics up yet but I have All Pro sliders on my '08 Access cab. They fit nicely, look sharp, don't stick out excessively, and would work well as steps. There are pics on their web site: www.allprooffroad.com

    My 2 votes would be for Demello and for N-fab. Jason Demello is a helluva guy, and builds quality stuff. :)
