    I think if you want all looks and zero function they are great.

    Yeah I did notice that they are pretty high up to the truck. And I hardly use the steps. But they do look great!

    Great “steps” (rock sliders are not steps because you can’t step on them lol) but they only hold 500lbs so you cant use them as jack points :(

    For that you might want something a bit lower more designed to be a true step. These are kind of steps made to look like sliders which means they won't be very good at either job and may even make it more difficult.

    Rock sliders don't work well for steps. They pretty much sit right with the floor of the truck anyways. They are too awkward to use as steps.

    You can kind of imagine using them by looking at them.

    You will want an actual set of running boards - the ones pictures on this thread are more of fake rock sliders (real rock sliders serve as jack points and prevent damage to the rear of the body if you bottom the truck out).

    I have the Research power steps. They are very expensive but nice (previous owner bought them - I never wasted $1,600 on some steps lol). You want something that drops down several inches to help step in. I think the Research steps drop down further than normal running boards because they come back up when you close the door so you aren't driving around with them dropped really low. If you have cash and need to assist someone getting into the truck the power steps are awesome.
