    I always thought that you were more likely to damage your rocker panels if you wheel in rocks than get stuck and need a winch. I vote for rock rails first, body damage sucks.

    OK.. it was 50+ deg outside today so I am thinking it is a great day to give the truck a good washing just to find that my just over one yr old powder coated N-fabs are rusting like crazy. F'ing pisses me off!

    Sorry for your trouble but a good heads up for those thinking of buying them. Powder coated too, I would have thought that would have made them rust proof. Wonder what's the solution. Maybe someone else will chime in.

    Smitty and NFab are the same. Go with the cheapest. I bought Smitty from AutoAnything with free shipping and no sales tax. They always have a discount code going. When I got them the step said NFab. Again they are the same.

    Looked up my order for you $237.99 USD.

    read the description...and if I remember correctly, I think I read somewhere that smittybilt was the official builder for NFAB stuff, they just stamp a name on it for more money... kinda like a toyota lexus deal.

    It doesn't matter what you order it will say NFab on the step. Buy Smitty and tell your friends you are a big spender and bought NFab. Dress to impress.
