    I just ordered the Stepping Boards for my 08 Tacoma DBL CAB. Are they easy to install?

    They are ordered from Toyota

    I didnt want to pay somebody $152 dollars to install these.


    Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks!

    I agree with everyone else, if you got them from "Toyota" they will bolt right up! ! !!!

    can't remember...3 or 4 bolts per side. they thread right into the rocker panel. might get someone to help you hold them up straight to get a couple bolts started...other than that...piece of cake.

    It was very DIY-able.


    I had a bunch of HS kids I look after give me hand with install. came out nice!

    I will try to post up pics if anybody is interested.


    Thank you all for the input. :D
