    First off, I can’t stand 99% of side steps/Nerf bars, they ruin the look IMO, but a 5’ wife and two toddlers has me in the market for the least grandpa-ish steps available.

    So! Most tube steps stick out too far or hang too low and leave a massive gap...until I saw these googling pictures. These are the most “tucked” style I’ve seen and I’m not spending $500 on Nfab, $750+ on sliders or AMP’s.

    What brand are these?!

    Get some Toyota OEM used junkyard specials. They look pretty good on the DC if you get the non-tube versions. I scored some sexy AC OEM’s that have some really nice curves to fit the body for $125 plus $50 shipping. Too bad the DC don’t offer this exact version, though they do have the bulkier platform style ones which look nicer than the tube styles IMO. You could do a nationwide online search for either.

    The Derek Center People really really enjoy having a step up.

    The ones in that original picture still hang too low for me. I think it just looks higher because the truck has a big lift.

    Will give a try looking locally for those. Trk I have came with the 3" chrome tubing. It's step pads are level to the bottom of frame, and that's too low for me.

    Do a Nationwide search. Most ship for free except big bulky items.

    These were off a driver front offset collision 2003. Called and made sure all the brackets were part of the deal because those brackets are about $45 each (x3 per side). Sure enough they were included. I did have to make a few retrofits to make it happen during install, but was easy stuff for a hand model.

    I remember wanting these when I bought the truck new, but the stealer wanted $900!
