    Chrome would tie in nicely.. Toyota tube style with black foot pads so she doesn't slip.

    Thank you. That’s what is was thinking but so many kinds. Don’t know what would’ve the best. I have looked and looked. Just don’t want it to look like old running boards if that make since. One of my friends dad have a Tundra and he said it will look like a grandpa truck with them running boards. Lol. He is 65!! Very funny guy.

    I just put on the Tyger star bars. Cost me $279.00 with free shipping direct. They are built great with an equal finish. The look is fantastic. They really help this old guy get in and out. And my dog too. I highly recommend.

    +1 on the RCI heavy duty steps. Only downside is that they are a little on the pricey side. Well worth it though IMO.
    Sounds like a pair of OEM take offs would be perfect for you. I had the Toyota branded chrome tube steps with black steps, sold them for next to nothing. You should be able to find a set for relatively cheap.

    You see how the small accents of chrome about the truck "tie in" with the base color and black accents? Kinda what you were touching on with yours. The red tundra really does a good job of contrasting. Can you roll over granite boulders? No.. But if your wife slips on the step, she won't rip 5 lbs of skin off her shin, which may pay dividends when your with her later at night.. Lol

    Another +1 for AMP...they're pricey but to keep the lines clean and tucked away they're fantastic. I also used to have nfab's on my old 4Runner they were solid too.
