    There are hardly any reviews and pictures of the Tyger Blade running boards on Amazon but I loved the look the second I saw them. Very similar to a Go Rhino running board or the OEM Ford Raptor boards.

    Install was super easy. They use 3 brackets per side, 2 bolts per bracket. You then set the 1 piece board on top of the brackets and bolt down with 3 bolt down plates per side, 2 nylock nuts per plate.

    They seem very solid and well built. They are nice and tight to the body and don’t hang down any lower than necessary. Shipped to my door in 2 days via amazon prime for $289. Can’t beat it!

    I think I’m going to get a bit of skateboard grip tape and cover the cutout Tyger logo but these boards are great!

    EDIT: I cut and put some grip tape over the Tyger logo. Picture included

    Looking good. I like the low profile look.

    I like it, any chance they make an extended version that does all the way to the rear wheel well?

    EDIT, a quick search of their website yielded a "no" on my first question

    It would appear the first 2 pics didn’t upload for some reason. I’ll update the original post. Any particular pictures you want to see?

    Thanks. I do love the color. Wasn’t my favorite at first but I love it now! Check out the original post, I just re-uploaded the pictures so they should be there now.

    Can anyone give me an idea of how these are holding up after some time...?
    Is the hardware replaceable (with over the counter bolts)?

    Still holding up perfectly. Finish is still perfect, no issues whatsoever

    Maybe overkill but I had my set of Blades Line-Xed before I installed them on my '21.

    I decided on these because of the low profile, sturdy but light build, and vents to drain off ice and snow. These are also great for my wife and kids.

    Initially I was leaning toward sliders, but I couldn't justify the weight and cost (..of shipping more than anything) for my intended use for the truck. I also got paranoid about the possibility of rust forming between slider brackets and frame.

    My only gripe is that the Blades do not extend far enough back to use as a solid bed step. I can do it but must lean off the side.

    I have had mine almost a year. They have held up great. Drive on gravel a lot & keep truck from getting beat up too.

    I have these on my 2011 Tundra. I have had them for a couple of years and they are holding up nicely. They are certainly heavy duty and a great buy at the price.

    I love the blue! If I could swap my TRD Pro black for that blue, I would...

    Oh, and the blade, I hope it holds up for you. I'm in the "you get what you pay for" category, and I can't see how that'll hold up long term.

    Agreed, I don't consider the cab length bars or boards for my use. There are more Wheel to Wheel models available now than when I bought mine 10 years ago!:thumbsup:
