When I had mine, I felt they were quite sturdy and would not be of issue
Only had them for 2 months till I switched to AMP steps.
But I would not hesitate to grab them again

Any specific reason for switching to the AMPs?

My truck was too tall and my kids then were smaller. The amps do drop about 7-8" which is substantial.
Plus I liked the clean look when they tucked away.
But again, if I did not have the amps, I'd still be rocking the NFabs.

If you do need a set, let me know and I can get them to you

The passenger side front flare bowed out at the bottom where it meets up with the NFAB step. Warping flares is a pretty common problem so the dealership didn't think much of it and just ordered a new one under warranty. When their body shop guy was replacing it he said the step was part of the problem but they went ahead and covered it. The steps are off the truck now I think I just need to tweak them a bit so they drop about 1/4 of an inch further. I don't want them hanging down too low or it will look like crap since the NFAB kind of simulates a rock slider type look.

I agree I was concerned about getting them as tight to the body as I could without actually touching the truck. The front if the steps on both sides are just barely making contact with the plastic at the bottom of the fenders. I wasn't sure if that would cause problems or not since all pressure would be downward away from the contact point and again the contact is just very slight.

I had them on my Tundra for about 2 years until I sold the truck. They were very sturdy and I never had a single issue with them. I was concerned about them not having end caps, so I asked n-Fab about that before purchasing. I don't remember their exact response, but they said something about it being possible to have moisture trapped inside when using end caps (thus causing rusts, etc.). I never had one spot of rust or paint chipping on mine. I'll be ordering the regular cab lengths, or the n-Durasteps here shortly for my Ram.

I went with the wheel to wheel n-fabs, used hardware they supplied. As for the opened ends, to keep out snow, mud etc. I taped off the outside ends with newspaper and painters tape to protect the finish , filled the open ends with some spray foam insulation. Let it dry over nite, then cut it off flush the next day and finised with a couple shots of black spray paint.

Thanks for the advice. I actually like that idea, I figured to get those covered I would have to get a little creative and that seems to be one of the better options because that should work to keep most if not all of the moisture out of the tubes. Have you had any rust/finish issues at all?

Perfect solution to capping it off

No rust issues ,no problems with the finish. Just keep spray foam off the front finish till it dries up.
