Default Finally got it narrowed down!!!!!!!!!!!

At least I think I do. I put some AVS vent shades (smoke colored) on and it looks really nice against the Mineral Gray with the other black trim on the windows.

Now I need to get some Nerf Bars. I want the oval shape powder coated in black. My local accessory shop is trying to steer me away from any powder coated ones as they are just steel and will rust. He said the brackets are crap and will rust also.

Wow, if that's true how come so many trucks are using these? I think he just wants me to spend $600.

Any truth to what he is saying about the powder coated bars? If anybody is using these what brand is the best in your opinion? My friend says by the time these rust I will probably be under ground before.

Money is no problem, I just like the black ones against the Mineral Gray.

Thanks.

I got the 5" oval black mopar ones from my dealer for $380. If I were you I'd go with them, after all they are made for your truck. Here is some pics of what they look like on my truck.

Default Hey "finn5033"

Thanks for the reply

Nice looking "rig" you have. I took your advice and went to my dealer and settled on the Luverne O-Mega Step.

They are a black 5" anodized T-6 Aluminum Oval Step guaranteed not to rust.

With the price of the steps (brackets extra) plus labor it's going to get close to $550.

Pretty pricey but I'm sure I will be satisfied with the look.
