    Toyota doesn't make the running boards to fit the std cab so I got the step tubes. A bit much I think. I plan on putting some Mich. LTXs on in the future. If I can ever decide on wheels. Maybe they'll grow on me.

    I'm not really a fan of that look but only because it looks too low. I think if you painted/LineX'd them they would look better but being higher off the ground would definitely make it more palatable.

    Do these tube steps from Toyota help in getting in and out of the truck?

    +1 on the paint or Line-X. It looks UBER low right now...Not my flavor so much. But it's workable.
