    These look great esp for street trucks. Just wish they didn’t have the stars :(

    If my truck has a leveling kit, does the Tyger Armor make my truck look significantly lower?

    I wouldn't say significantly lower. I've seen worse, one of the reasons I went with these.

    I’d like to see these on a Tundra as well. I like the look of the other ones but not a fan of all the stars.

    I have the pair with the stars , I too thought they might bother me but they do not. Just put the Tyger Tonneau cover on to replace my Extang 2.0 that leaked. Dry as a bone

    I've had them on for a few weeks and love 'em. They don't hang down as low as the bars, so you don't lose as much clearance. They're also $269 now, direct from Tyger. When I purchased, they were $289 and a week later dropped $20. I contacted Tyger and they refunded the difference within a couple of hours.

    Oh, here ya go team playa:

    These are so Raptor esque. Do not hang low, assist with washing/drying windshield. Fit and finish is 8/10, slight give to them at 200#, sz 12. Sleek not gawdy and may give door ding protection.

    Can't tell if you guys are DC or CM, but I was looking for the Blades for CrewMax and couldn't find them on Amazon or Tyger's site. Ended up ordering the sliders, and not regretting that at all, but was curious if these actually exist for CrewMax.

    I have had my Tyger star steps on since Feb 2017. I really like the look of the new ones but not enough of a reason to change. Tyger is doing a great job with their products and their customer service.

    these look very clean
    how is the finish as far as washing? if they get salty / muddy are they difficult to clean? can you wash them with a wash mitt or would you need a brush due to the textured coating?

    They are easy to clean. I pretty much just spray them off. The texture helps with slippage, but it isn’t a very deep texture.

    I have the Tyger "Star Armor" version shown in the OP. Had them since Christmas. They were a gift from my fiance because she hated trying to climb into my truck lol.

    Personally, I didn't really want side steps. I don't need them and the truck looked better without them in most cases. I don't offroad but if I did I would want real rock sliders that both to the frame

    That said, the Tygers were easy to install, holes all lined up and they seem pretty solid. Overall they don't look bad except for those stupid stars! Just gives it a very cheesy look IMO. I also don't like how low the bottom bar hangs down. Between that and my big gut, I had to jack up my truck (stock suspension) just to install my DD exhaust. If I could call a do over (and assuming it was available at the time) I would probably go with their newer "Blade" option or reconsidered the GoRhino RB10's. Only reason I didn't go with the GoRhinos in the first place was because of how they mount unevenly. Looks like these Tyger Blades don't do that?
