    I replaced the OEM Raptors with Westin 21-22775 Pro Traxx 4" Oval Step Bars. Why Westins? I had similar ones on my Tundra for 12 years and when one of the plastic steps broke at about year 9, Westin replaced all 4 under warranty.

    Raptors are FS in the DFW area if anyone local is interested. I just found them less than functional - but look cool.

    Nfab Epyx...I like the individual steps and that they sit a bit lower. Easier for an older guy like me, with bad hips, to step in. Love the looks. Around $300.

    These running boards prevent our car door from hitting the truck, I know from experience. They are aluminum with rubber tread pad surface and fit up tight and close to the truck.

    I'm just waiting for the tracking date. Hell if these are as good as the fake rigid industries fog lights, these might replace my predators.

    Do you have to use a thread locker with the bolts at installation? To ensure they will not get loose? Thanks

    You don't need to. Everything fits tight. I used to swap predator steps for sliders once a year and never found a loose bolt.

    Edit - I think the OEMs are called "Preditors", not "Raptors".

    Finish on what - the OEM Predators (textured black) or the Westins (flat black powder coat)?

    [Sorry for the thread-jack; I wouldn't ship the OEMs anyway.]
