    I'm thinking about getting some steps for my truck, thinking nerf bars with the side steps on them. I would get sliders but I don't really wheel much so I don't think theyd be worth the extra money. How much are people paying for steps like this? I'm seeing prices anywhere from $200-500, are the cheap ones something I should avoid?

    $2-500?! I think I paid $250-$300 for my sliders from Brandon at Avid Offroad. Preventing and administering door dings is worth it in my book

    I mean it depends man. Step bars are exactly that. Step bars, but sliders are around the same price. But there's many options out there... I have the nfab bars from Amazon. But I regret getting step bars. because for the same price you can have sliders with a step on it. Check out c4fab sliders. Has the step built in the sliders

    I had the NFAB smittybilt side steps on my last Tacoma. They chipped and rusted within a year. They were replaced under warranty and I just sold the new set. Was not impressed by the powder coat. I will say they were one of those things that seemed like a good idea, but once they were on the truck I didn't find them useful.

    look awesome but definitely out of my price range, I don't really wheel at all here on long island so I'm not too worried about protecting my doors. really just need a step but I hate the look of running boards so I was thinking nerf bars

    Yup then I recommend the nfab bars, Qucik install and it helps get everyone in the vehicle, if I didn't have a wife I wouldn't have these

    I can get some close up shots tomorrow. It fades but a bottle of rhino shine brings it right back to new looking.

    I have Go Rhino's. First set purchased in 2013 rusted within a year. Got them replaced thru warranty in 2015. New version, retail for $500. Still look great!
