    I am looking into getting the smittybilt (n-fab) steps for my silver taco. I have seen plenty of pics of the black steps on silver which look great, but I am concerned about the northern ny winters and rusting. So I think I am going with the stainless for the sake of durability. I am looking for any pics of a silver taco with the stainless steps. Thanks.

    With the install on the smittybilt steps are you required to drill holes in your frame to bolt the steps?

    Raswank, I see you are from mass. How do the smitty's do in the winter as far as snow getting pack in between the bar and body? Also I am concerned that I will be rubbing on the step getting in and out at 5'11". The bars are primarily for my wife and kids. I like the looks but don't want to be constantly getting my pants dirty. That will get old quick. Thanks.

    Didn't have any issues with snow at all. I am also 5'11" and have no issues getting clothes dirty

    They bolt right on. There are 2 bolt holes in the front but only one lines up to the OEM in the body.

    Raswank, one last question for ya. Do you find yourself using the step regularly, or is it meant more for passengers? Thanks again for all the help.

    Use it sometimes, especially for washing. But it is mostly for passengers, and appearance.

    I am thinking autoanything.com. I can get them 15% off and free shipping so I think it is a good deal and they will price match for one year after purchase. If you or anyone else knows a better deal, let me know. I am still debating on stainless or black and want the best price and service I can get.
