    I am thinking about getting a pair, but don't know what kind I want. Was wondering if people would post pics of various kinds so I can decide what style I think looks best. Running board or tube pics please.

    Thanks in advance.

    I;ve got the Toyota 'black plastic' ones, I really like them. They protect teh truck body, aren't too wide and go with the rest of teh blacked out stuff (mirrors, handles, etc on teh truck.[​IMG]

    I have the flat black step style. Love them. Only drawback is that one time I went through a ditch and the boards bent up and pinned my door shut.

    It's all stock right now, gotta get back from deployment first!
    Where did you get these from? These are the ones I'm wanting to get. Just a website or something would work.

    Where did you get these?

    I'm looking for a board or the chrome OEM-style nerf bar that would give a little protection plus be a good step, my father in law is disabled and rides in my truck regularly. I tried the side-step kind that have a step down lower but they just confuse him quite honestly.

    Disagree, as they don't protect the truck when I'm off road. Yes, I'm over 40 ... way over.
