    My Toyota dealer wants $540 installed for 2009 D-Cab long bed silver tube steps. Can you help me find some cheaper? Thanks!

    Try 'Toyotapartsstore.com'.

    They sell for $303.24 plus shipping.

    Not sure what shipping is but i bought them from the dealer for $400.00 and put them on myself in about 1/2 hour. They came with the mounting brackets already secured to the steps. I put a box under the opposite end while i was loosely securing the other end. Went back to the box supported end and loosely secured that end, then the center. (Pre-existing holes) Then secured them all.

    I am in the rust belt, so i greased up the bolts / threads and bracket contact points for rust prevention before securing the brackets to the underside.

    Slice of pie, er, i mean, piece of cake and not worth $140 labor. Thats nuts.

    Hi - No idea - there was nothing written on the box. Yes I am happy with them. I had no issues installing them either.

    Thanks guys! I got a set from the Toyota Parts Store - 2009 Dbl Cab long bed silver tube steps for $366 (includes shipping). I have used Toyota Parts Store for everything now (all-weather mats, hood protector, tube steps) and have had a good experience with them so far.

    Thanks for your help!
