    Starting to look into side steps for my 2012 double cab. Any recommendation or product to stay away from?

    If your planning on doing any offroading, take a look at Rock sliders. But otherwise I like N-Fab bars

    Will take the abuse of off roading but still function as steps.

    I went with nFab before sliders. They look good and help the vertically challenged, but offer no protection for your truck.

    I like the factory steps but they are not sliders by any means. Just look good and give short people some help getting in.

    These are factory from Toyota? I've never seen these. Any links to get a better look?

    I just put GO RHINO Dominator II's on my '13. They had removable cleats which I plan to take off and spray with bed liner and add some sand for grit.

    OEM running boards. IMO they look good, provide a place to step, & protect truck.

    So far it seems everybody is right. I have to agree with Pugga though. For just about the same money as a set of steps you can get the BAMF sliders right now because he's doing a 30% off sale and get the fill plates. It never hurts to be really protected, all it takes is one log or rock on one of his few offroading trips to ruin the rocker panels. Just my 2c's.

    Access Literider Tonneau, GO RHINO Dominator II side steps

    Those are nice but they still sit up high, I needed the drop downs for my little kids. Also, I just priced them and came out to about $450.
