Default Step Bars

I'm looking at getting some step bars for my Black 08 Ram Quad Cab. Selection in Canada (without paying an arm and a leg) is pretty sparse - but i found some on JCWhitney that are under 200 bucks shipped. My question is Black powder coat or polished Stainless steel for a black truck? (with chrome door handles)

Thanks
G

Westin's are junk. They state that their steps don't rust but they do. I have proof. Get those aluminum steps, I got them for my RAM and still holding up well. Look at my photo's in my prfile and you'll see what I have.

The polished looks good against darker colors. It also probably goes with your wheels, right?

Stainless steel it is, that will look nice with the wheels etc. If i'm picking these things up for under 200 bucks, i'm not too concerned about the longevity - for that price, i can replace them yearly if needed! I also picked up a gently used JVC KD NX5000 head unit that i'll be popping in someday soon.

Well I put the Mopar black aluminum steps on my RAM for around 300 and change, you can see them in my sig pics. Holding up great so far however I did have my Ram rust proofed by Krown.

Aluminum doesn't rust.

Yea if you have the chrome handles then the chrome steps would look best. If you want to get something for $200 shipped your not really setting your expectations too high haha. If your in Canada you can send me a PM, well if your in or around Toronto and the GTA. I might be able to lend you a helping hand
