    does anyone know where i can find the steps , they are about 2 feet long and 6 inches wide and install onto the frame. they are made of diamond plate and they look great , i see them on other trucks but i don't see them for sale in catalogs .

    I'm pretty sure these are made by Dee Zee. Called the Brite-Tread Tough Step.

    hmmm. Don't have em myself but someone in CK5 said they
    cause premature rusting. I think rust in your area is a problem, correct? If you really want them I would investigate
    completely waterproof sealer or remove and clean em frequently.
    I hate rust.

    I believe the rust was refering to the doorsill(sp?) diamond plates. Those are entirely different things....they do rust BTW...but if you spray the bottom of the diamond plate with rust stopping paint like por15 it'll keep them fine and rust free.....

    Go check out the truck they've been running on the cover of last few LMCs. Those have the crappy running boards. They actually mount into the rockers instead of the frame. nothing but trouble. The frame ones are alot better deal than the rocker ones.

    LMC is the name of a parts and accessories catalog for trucks. I'm not sure what it stands for though.

    Easy mistake to make...! [​IMG]

    But yeah stay away from steps that bolt to the body. You have one moment of jumping on the step and it bends in and you do a face plant. I speak of this through experience through a step on a bunco trying to kill me! LOL
