Default Best Step Bars

I have a 2011 crew cab SLT. Which I am looking for some new step bars for. I have a short wife and 3 kids. I cant decide what kind to get and what size step like 4 or 6 inch. Also should I do wheel to wheel so I have a bed step. These are almost as bad as picking out the truck.

Any suggestions and photos would be greatly appreciated.

NFab, GoRhino and RBP would be three manufacturers I'd suggest you look at.

Raptor does not make a wheel to wheel for Crew cabs. I called and they said it was because on their design there isn't room for the third step into the bed.

I just installed my 4" Raptpr SS ovals yesterday and took a quick trip with my in-laws and family. My 2.5 year old had no trouble climbing in on his own, which he insisted on. My mother-in-law has a bad hip and didn't have any issues either. She said it was real easy.

Hope that helps in the decision.

Check out the AMP research power steps. They do cost some money but well worth it.

Factory steps are rock solid. My wife had a stroke and can not afford a slip or shift.
