    I’d check your local craigslist first. I see OEM take offs like those all the time for cheap.
    Personally, I went a different route with RCI Off-road side steps but they are admittedly a little more than the OEM style.
    Good luck with your search!

    I would highly suggest you avoid unfamiliar brand knockoffs. I installed the iboards bought off eBay, sent it into the dealership for some work, got it back a week later, decided to return the boards for oem boards and found rust in the bolts and mounts. Then there’s the hassle to return them and get the seller to pay for the return label which cost as much as the boards itself. Stick with oem or highly reputable quality ones

    I agree. I’ll be keeping my eye out for a set of OEM takeoffs someone is looking to sell but for the time being these will do. Up here in Michigan they salt the crud out of the roads and I really just want something the help keep the grime off and help prevent rock chips for the time being.

    10-4 on the salt. Stainless steel holds up well.
