I've been looking for running boards or side steps to install on my 14 CC 4X4 Outdoorsman that don't stick out very far from the side of the truck. I think I have found some that may work. It's the Aries 3" Rocker Steps but curious if any has them on their truck and their review or comments on them?? also would like to see some pictures if can post some. Thanks

Don't have them but wanted a set of steps that hugged the truck tight like rock rails.

Found the Westin HDX Drop Steps and I love them.

Westin also makes another product called the HDX Extreme Running Boards which are similar to my Drops Steps.

Joeyg, i have seen those and like them alot but my truck has stock wheels\tires and no lift or leveling. I'm afraid it won't look right if i go with the Westin HDX and not upgrade wheels\tires to something more aggressive looking. they look awesome on your truck..!

Those tight steps are just asking to pile up salt/debris and rust the doors off. Are the HDX ones made of steel as well?

I haven't seen mine on an unmodified Ram, but I have seen the Westin HDX Extreme Running boards on a dark grey Ram 1500 Sport with the black wheels that was stock. They looked great on it.

The Aries 4" round tubes don't stick out far, just a hair past stock 17 tires.
They are also aluminum and wrinkle black finish, look great and won't rust.
