    Dealer wanted to charge about $450 for a set of DBL Cab LB genuine toyota black tube steps. I took a print out of this to the dealer and asked them to price match it. They did with no problem They even honored a coupe I had from them to take an additional 10% off purchases over $100....so I got the steps for about $345 (no shipping cost).

    They fit perfect on the 05+ long beds. Just unscrew out the plastic tabs below the truck and screw in the steps. Very easy install and perfect line up to the original holes. Those are the exact ones I used for my 2010. They no longer make the greyish colored ones, only selling the black. The black tubes are original for 2011 but fit all models, just make sure you order the long bed so that you get the extended length at the end.

    I agree the N-fab are cheeper in price but I liked the look of the OEM Tubes better. I perfered how close they fit against the truck (minimal gap) and the tucked in look compare to the step hanging down... just a preference of mine.

    The black tubes are powder coated so they shouldnt have the same chipping issue that I saw on many of the grayish OEM tube steps after a few years.
