    I have the N-Fabs....glossy black...I absolultely love them, and a lot of people ask where I got them. Other than the internet, I havent seen a single truck with them on them...

    I would go with those...to be different...

    Do the OEM tube steps and the running boards mount to the cab (rocker panel) or to the frame?

    Look under your truck, you should see 3 pairs of black plastic tabs. Those pop off and the bolts hold the boards in place.

    Do you guys recommend installing these step bars on your own, or having them installed? Are certain steps more difficult to install than others?
