    Default Which Step Rails to Buy and Where to Buy Them??

    Hi all and thanks for the welcome into the group . . .

    Just bought a new '08 Silverado WT (Work Truck) regular cab, with auto., air, and nothing else . . . This truck sits higher than my '97 Ford F-150, just high enough that my wife has somewhat of a "challenging" time getting in it. She think those step rails would be a good idea.

    Looks like there's alot of possibilities out there . . . any recommendations in terms of which ones offer the best bang for the buck and a best-price source? I'll thinking not the black ones; either stainless or chrome, and my initial thought was the kind that have the black (rubber?) strips all the way from front to back, instead the kind that have "pads".

    I've always been the type that doesn't want to pay a nickel more than I have to, so cost is really a major consideration. Any/all suggestions/opinions/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    It all depends on the look you want. Do you want chrome or black step bars? Also it matters on the style you like. Give me a lil info and I'll and everyone else can help you out more.
