    I am looking for some pictures of New Body style regular cab 2500hd's with tube steps or Diamond plate running boards. I am trying to decide which style I want, and do not want to order them if I am not going to like how they look on the truck.

    I can get a set of DeeZee Diamond plate running boards of ~$200 out the door, or a set of Westin black tube steps for ~$250.

    One of my concerns with the tube steps is that the is nothing to stop your foot from going to far. Having never owned any truck with the tube style steps I do not know if this is an issue.

    Thanks guys!! :drinkup:

    Froozen001 have you checked over at The Diesel Place. In their 2500HD and 3500 forum, they have a sticky which has about 150 pages of peoples trucks. You might see something you like over there. Also check out mychevytruck.com

    Spend the extra bucks for stainless tubes, when the black ones start to rust they go quick. I usually run the Westin stainless and they are great, 50000 miles on my 03 and no rust :)

    If you decide to go with the black ones, I have heard of people scuffing up the bottom sides with sand paper and spraying them with spray on bedliner type spray to keep them from rusting.

    The guy at the shop said that the tubes have a 5 year warranty against rust... but maybe that is like the rust warranty on cars/trucks it has to be a hole...
