I am partial to the sturdiness & the looks of the N-FABs
they were not making them yet for the Gen 4 Rams in February '09, when i purchased my Ram. I had to wait until late May to get them
I had wanted the 3 step, but they were not going into production with them within a reasonable time frame. I needed bars right then.
So i had a muffler shop cut off the rear step bar, then they fabricated a longer rear step, now i can raise my sign while standing on the modified rear step
I think the muffler shop did an outstanding job, they sent the nerf bars off to get powder coated, it was not my preferred powder coater & i had to wait a month for then to come back.
I helped the muffler shop owner mount them, we used the holes that were available, we used a fishline type thing to pull the rectangular washers & the nuts into place

They did an awesome job modding them I give them that!

Those are definitely some nice step bars, the longer rear step actually looks good

gtyankee, that looks nice! I personally don't like the three step, I think it looks a little strange and proportionally not right, but your modified bar fits nicely! I've seen nfabs on my friends tacoma and liked them, I was going to get them for my ram but liked the go rhino's because the SS steps match the chrome of my truck. They are similar products. Also to the OP, your truck looks nice as well(similar to mine haha)! Love this style step.

Default Updated Pictures of Step Up Bars

Washed the ram today, here's a few more clear pictures of the bars. Sorry about the other ones, they were with my cell phone while I was at work.
