    I just purchased a 2016 Tacoma Double Cab and would like to add some running boards.

    Do you have some suggestions on what you liked and disliked?

    Thank you.

    Check options at Westin and Smittybuilt.
    There will be many opinions. In the end look at the options and decide what works for you. I like my Westin tube style, but never use them. My wife does, and when my kids were smaller they did. For me it is now more in the way than helping me. Just something to keep in mind.

    I use 6" ProZ nerf bars. That's enough to eliminate door dings and use the step to caen the roof.
    If I could have purchased 7" I would have.

    Yeah, not sure if I want to add bars/steps/nerfs/tubes to my 3rd gen. Had a set of 4" tubes on my 1st gen and never really used them as steps, except to wash top of cab or when fooling with rooftop racks. But they were really good at smearing mud and water on your pants when entering/exiting truck, especially on rainy days.

    I also don't understand why people on this forum think they prevent door dings. You can look at the sides of my 1st gen and see LOTS of door dings despite having tubes for the past 15 years. Seems other driver's doors just don't line up properly with the tubes.

    But I do like the look of them hiding the rails underneath and the idea of sliders preventing damage to rocker panels.

    I just need it for my son. Doesn't bother me getting in and out. Plus it would look better covering up underneath sides. My wife has 16' Highlander with oem running boatds and it doesn't get dirty. I want running boards and the Iboards look nice.
