    Could anyone recommend (if any) steps for an 09 tacoma double cab that doesn't require any modifications/drilling?

    I got the smittybilt step bars from auto anything (good price and free shipping) and they bolted directly to existing holes in the frame. Took about 30 minutes to put on. Couldn't be easier. Since your going to hear it sooner or later people are going to tell you to get sliders instead. I prefer the look and the function of sliders but for me they just were not practical. I don't do any serious off roading and the extra cost could not be justified. They should be welded on. Just got the bars to make it easier for my mom to get in the truck and to help prevent door dings. Have not had a problem with them, but have only had them for a year now. I bought the black because my truck is magnetic grey, but I think the stainless would hold up better.

    I have the factory tube steps that I purchased online. They installed in factory, threaded holes in about 45 minutes. They're pretty strong and holding up well after about 2 years.
