    Well, I decided that I didn't like the looks of the Nfab step bars as much as I thought I would. So I sold them and picked up some Amp Research Powersteps. The installation went very good, thanks to excellent instructions and wiring diagram. They worked perfectly right off the bat, and I didn't have to go back through and chase down any electrical gremlins.

    Some pictures:

    Definitely very clean' nifty looking. Reminds me of an airplane braking flap. Out when you need it. In when you don't.

    The only factory options that I ordered were the all-weather floor mats (which I actually ended up replacing with Husky Weatherbeaters). Other than that, the SR5 had all the options I wanted.

    Man that fold out step looks slick (good)!
    But it does kinda look like it might be a little flimsy? If a 240 lb guy stands on it does it flex?

    I haven't had a 240 lb person on them yet, but I'm 165 and they don't flex at all. They are rated for up to 600 lbs each. And the placement of the mounts is well thought out, in that they are right under where you step. I think that helps to stiffen them a lot.

    I'm in the process of trying to get back down to 175 lbs. Started out at 201 but at 65 years old, it ain't easy going back! Currently = 192 (sigh....).
