    Hi everyone!! Just got my N-Fabs in and installed. After searching I decided to go with stainless. I like the black and color matched but wanted to do something different. I guess I am having chrome withdrawal after selling my Harley. LMK what ya'll think. Again thanks to everyone on this board. I just wish I had found this site sooner when I purchased my 2003 Tacoma!!!

    Buzoff,

    I like the look. Did you install the n-fabs yourself? Any issues with the install?

    Yes I installed them myself. Just had to unscrew the plastic stock screws and bolt on. Didn't line up perfectly, but with some elbow grease I got them on in about 30 minutes.

    So the N-fabs are the same as the Smittybuilt ones? Are they the same company? I'm kind of confused.:confused:

    you can get them from 4wheelparts too, they just don't usually stock them so you have to wait or maybe pay for some shipping. Kinda crazy i was quoted like $340 or 360 for the black.

    A friend of mine has the black n fabs for AC and the paint chipped all over so he had them sprayed with Line-x. its looks killa.

    the shiny looks SO good with the blue. NICE work buzoff!
