    Avid. Great quality and customer service. Always getting asked who makes the bars.

    @bonfire................ What did you paint them with? How are they holding up? Are they used by you and your passengers?

    I had them powered coated. I have had them for a little over two months. Have Done a few fire road trails and lots of freeway miles and not a single chip. My wife uses them to get into the truck and I use them to clean the roof when I am washing the truck. They are holding up great. I can get more pics if you want to see the welds. Avid does a great job when it comes to craftsmanship and customer service.

    I have a question. How much room is there for your foot on those steps? Is it a toe-hold only? Or can you get more of your foot in there to get a better grip?

    How are these holding up? Very interested in getting me a set of Avid step bars...

    Anyone happen to have a pic with someone using/stepping on the bars? I'd like to see how the foothold is, especially with bigger feet and/or with boots on

    I like the N-Fabs because they actually have a flat textured plate welded to the step area. They both look great in my opinion.
