    I have narrowed it down to 4 different options. Don't need sliders as I am not doing any hardcore wheeling. Mainly deer lease roads and fire trails. Help me pick a set. If you have a picture with any of these ones on, let me see them.

    1) Dominator D6's
    2) Black Horse
    3) Tyger Star Armor
    4) RCI Steps

    Big fan of RCI myself.. And if you forget you have steps and not sliders, they can take a beating. Ask me how I know :)

    RCI. Might as well go with their rock sliders as it could save you $'s down the road.

    Could be a glitch on the website.. I ordered mine during a sale last year and when I went to order I didn’t see them listed. I called them and they updated the website. I could be wrong though..

    I have had my Tyger Star Armor for 2 tears and love them. They c look great, don't scuff, don't slip, and have perfect landing spots for feet.

    Supposedly the last pair was sold recently, not long after the sliders became available. Was mentioned here on the forum by a member. A phone call to RCI can clear that up.

    Well that would make sense. I haven’t been on in a while so I missed that one. I guess the OP can cross RCI off the list...
    For what’s its worth, I probably would have bought the sliders if they were available back when I got my steps. Not that much more for what you get. I do like the solid platform on top though since I have kids that use them to climb in and out the back. Haven’t looked to see if RCI sells the top plate as an option or not.

    I know it's not on your list but the iboard 5" steps work great as steps and are very adjustable. Powder coated aluminum is holding up well for the 2000 km so far and the price was very good. Just thought I'd throw my $0.02 in here

    What he said. Price is great and very well built. I am always amazed at how much better/easier it is to climb in and out of the truck compared to OEM.

    +1 for the Tygers. They are a very sturdy step, especially at the price point. Of course, if I had the money I'd just get real sliders though...

    RCI's are top shelf but you can't beat the Tyger for the price.

    I’ll eventually do sliders, just want to get rid of the stock chrome running boards for now.

    Actually ditched the above choices and ordered the rough country hd2's. Will post pics on the truck once I get them in and on.
