Question for you about step bars

    Not a plowing question, but I thought I would ask anyway.

    I bought the truck in the picture about a year ago. I have slowly been making it my own. The windows are all tinted the same color, the door panel stripping was taken off for a more cleaner look, and now I am looking for step bars. (My wife and kids have a hard time getting into it.)

    My question is, would all black step bars look better, or should I go with the chrome looking ones? And what style looks the best?

    Does anyone out there have this same color truck with some step bars on so I could see what they look like?

    Thanks.

    I have never seen black ones that don't end up rusting and looking like crap.

    The only ones that will last are stainless steel. Should be able to get them in black.

    I don't see the picture so I'm not sure if you're truck is the new body style or '03-'07 style. I've never been a nerf bar man cause I thought a step board that fit tight protected the rocker's & door jams best from salt & rock chips. On my '03 2500 HD crew I studied them long & hard and ended up buying Chevrolet brand step board like this. They were around $550.

    For some reason, it won't let me upload the picture because it says I have it in another thread. Anyone know how to get around that?

    Right click on the original picture and hit copy image location.

    Then come back to this thread, reply, and click on the yellow box with the mountain in it and paste in the image location.

    That will get the picture here.

    I think you have to actually edit the photo and make it different from original in order to repost. I see your truck it is the new body style. I don't think chevy offers the formed abs board like they did for the classic body style. They just have the step bars. One nice thing about buying GM's and some aftermarket is they use existing holes so no drilling. I got rid of my '03 & now have on '09, I've been trying to decide too. I think I am going to go with Dee Zee NXT boards in all black.

    A couple of sites with many different types are:
    www.runningboardwarehouse.com/
    www.runningboardworld.com

    I think both black or chrome would both look good on your truck. If your handy with paint you could just cut and paste a style you think you may like onto your photo.
