    Those are nice but for about $200 less you can get these on Amazon free shipping

    Tyger Auto TG-AM2T20208 Star Armor Kit for 2007-2019 Toyota Tundra CrewMax | Textured Black | Side Step Rails | Nerf Bars | Running Boards | 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M0G8HKA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_2c13BbWDVR67B

    And they are VERY sturdy and look great!! I have had them on my 18 CM SR5 TRD for about a week now and I love them. Side note they work great off road. I went over a sand/mud hill and almost bottomed out and the bars hit the top of the hill and held up great just got full of mud.....

    Thanks for the info! I looked at your profile pic, but I can’t see the bars well. Would you mind posting a pic of them on your truck?

    Good call. Amazon.ca doesn't have them. Probably because of prime lol

    Is your truck the crew max or the double cab?

    I would send them an inquiry if they would be willing to ship to it wouldn’t hurt to ask. Even with a little more $ they are still cheaper and better quality than most all others like them out there! Or just call them that works to

    Do you have a leveling kit on your truck?

    I have had the Iron Cross bars on for a bit under two years. I really like the way they look. But I've sort of beat the sh*t out of them. I torqued them a bit one day in high snow/mud and after that they started to peel - but this would happen to any bars I think. A car hit me (actually the bars) and the back plastic popped off the passenger side back end and then was run over and smashed as I was walking back to pick it up. (that sucked) The badges on it have been stolen (I park on the street in the city).

    Besides all of that, I would buy them again. They look great with the stock truck, and though I like they nfab bars and similar styles, I felt these looked out of place on a stock truck.

    I am looking to put one on my truck I’m just a little skeptical since I tow a 31’ trailer with it as well. I don’t want the front end to be sticking out in the air when I tow

    (Just as a side note, I would black out your license plate on your pictures of your truck)

    So basically if a car runs into my truck and hits me in the running boards something will happen? Lol sorry but that’s funny. Not your luck, THATS not funny.
    Thanks for the info and the boards look as good as I thought they would!

    Mine sits almost exactly level without any weight on the back end. So if you tow or put any weight in the bed, the nose would definitely point up. Just food for thought.

    Yeah that’s what I figured I may just go with a 1.5” or 2” just to be on the safe side. I also have the equalizer hitch on it as well so that should make up the difference! Thanks for your help!

    I just placed an order for a set of these exact step rails for my 19 PRO. My wife has a hard time getting in the truck. And I like having them for myself as well. The Tygers seem to be pretty high quality from everything I have read about them. Great reviews.

    Did you order them from Amazon? Direct from Tyger, they're $50 cheaper and also free shipping.

    Yes I did order them from Amazon. Here's what happened. I ordered a set from Amazon called OEDRO, looked about the same but were cheaper. When they got here they were for a DBL Cab not a Crew Max. They only had 3 mounting points, so I had to return them. That's when I spotted the TYGERS. So yes, I guess I paid more at Amazon. Never thought to check out the TYGER site. Oh well, live and learn.

    Sorry, I thought I might have mentioned it soon enough to do something about it. I'm sure you'll enjoy the bars and they have great customer service, if you ever need it.

    It's all good buddy. Not the first time I overpaid for something. I should have researched them more before buying from Amazon, but you know how that goes. They should be here tomorrow.
