Default Black Running Boards / Nerf Bars

What does everyone think are the best black running boards/nerf bars out there?

My dealer offered me the chrome ones at cost, but I would prefer black ones, and even further, flat black would be nicer in my opinion.

Anyone have any experience with good aftermarket, black ones?

I love my UWS nerf bars. They were painted black when I got them and I had them sprayed with line-x for extra grip, protection, and the look.

This is something I am also interested in could you guys possibly post where you got them and the cost as well? RamBiker11 the Line-X looks great! I'm sure it will extend the lifetime of the steps.

With the small lift on my truck my nerf bars are at the perfect height that if someone parks too close and opens their door it will hit them and not my paint and the line-x won't scratch.

I just ordered a set of cab length n-Fab bars from SVCustoms dot com. Check their site out, excellent prices (you can even make an offer on prices) and great customer service. Got mine for $370 shipped.

Dodge makes black ones for your truck. I just think factory last better. My other truck I went through a set of aftermarket every 4years . Not cheap ones either.

Can you please post a few more pics… does it look more black in real life, or is it more grey than black?
