    how difficult is it to make step bars for a dclb Taco? am i better off to buy premade ones?

    any particular metal to look into using that would be stronger, or even more rust/weather proof than others?

    i don't think anyone has attempted to make step bars, unless you're referring to sliders. i myself have a slider project going, and as long as you have a decent idea of how to fab stuff up it's not bad

    Sounds like you're better off buying a set of step bars. If you have a '05 or newer Tacoma, there are pre-drilled and tapped holes in the cab to mount bars to. Very easy install and they're not terribly priced depending on what you get.
