That's a hard one There are a few things to think about what you want.
1) Round or Oval?
2) How large of a 'mat' do you want (rubber vs metal)
3) Do you want the ends to hook into the truck (rounded, a true nerf bar) or do you want step rails, the end come to a point and don't hook underneat the truck.

My truck came with the Mopar logo bars. They seem to work well and pretty sturdy. I don't know who makes them for Mopar but they seem to do the job.

I wanted the Ram factory bars but they wanted 800.00. So I did some checking and found some from Truck Champ that look like the factory four inch straight for about 250.00 . They also are no drill installation easy to install. I am very happy with them and wife is to because she can get in the truck now.

I went with the Mopar ones based on looks only. They were expensive and I'm not pleased that they are mounted to the body and not the frame. However, the dealer said that since I ordered them through the dealer and had him put them on, they are covered under the 3 year (soon to purchase the 5 year) warranty. I think they look really good and they have been holding up well. They are great for the wife and kids too.
My second choice was going to be the Raptor bars.

i went with the raptor bars on mine and they look great but after a couple days the mounting brackets sent my OCD through the roof lol. i think the brackets hang too low and the tube is too far away from the body for my liking. going to look into fabing up another set of mounting brackets that will take care of all that.

i should have went with the mopar bars
