    Wife said she doesn't like my 2010 Tacoma dbl cab because she can't reach into the backseat and place the kiddo in the toddler seat (in the middle of the back seat). She asked if I could get a set of running boards. That is the okay (in my world) to spend money on Tacoma accessories! I've hunted around a little on here looking for pictures of running boards, but most of the pictures are not really close enough for me to see how they fit. The local dealer doesn't have any Tacos on the lot with boards on them.

    Can anyone post some pictures of aftermarket and factory running board options and whether or not they like them?

    Thanks for any pictures/opinions.

    This is my truck a day old. Factory running boards. Also, they can be for sale if you're interested. Best few pics I have of them. They bolt on though I'm not sure how man bolts it takes as I haven't removed them yet.

    I'm interested in talking anyway. Can you get some close ups of the boards? I sent a PM by the way.

    Thanks!

    I got some Smittybilts nerfs mounted this afternoon. I got them from Autoanything.com Its in stainless. I got a 2010 BSP DC Tacoma. I tried to include some close up of the fit and how it is positioned in relation to the body. Hopes this help. Oh yeah, the tubes says N-Fab on them.

    Don't forget about sliders. They can serve as steps while looking good too:

    I like the good ol fashion nerf bars. I also prefer the kind that actually turn in and disappear under the cab vs. those that are more just have a slight angle at each end like some posted above.

    Thanks for the pics. Still can't decide what I want though... :) I like the Smittybilts, but don't care for the stainless look (at least with the color of my Tacoma). The sliders are an option, but being mostly a city truck, people will kind of wonder why I have rock rails on my daily driver...ha! Decisions, decisions...

    N-fab can color match the tubes if you want. I saw several pics where the tubes are matched with the color of the truck. I believe you have to cough up a little bit of extra cash for those. Check out their site and try to contact Missy.:D

    wat?
    in this case, i think the nfab/smittybuilt/whoever else rebrands them, would do well. good defined step while prividng some protection. if you do offroad however, i'd go sliders

    Just an observation , I have the Nfabs , and love them , I also am going to lift my truck a couple inches , I have noticed that with the Nfabs on and the truck at stock height , you tend to get a shin hack when leaning into the back seat to get stuff , so if you plan on staying stock height you may want to consider tubes without the steps ,

    just my 2 cents Canadian ,
