Need suggestions on step bars/ mud flaps for my RCSB

I need something to help protect my paint from rocks without taking away from the clean look that I am trying to go for. I don't want a full style running board that hangs out but need something with some sort of protection. Also the any suggestions on a mud flap that has more coverage than my current splash guards but is not big and bulky.

Thanks

Check out the N-fab steps if you want something unique and away from the standard side steps.

You keeping yours 4WD? I'm debating about changing mine to 2WD... I'd love to lower it more. Right now, I've got the factory side steps, but I'm thinking of changing them up. I'd like to have the truck sit low enough that you don't need them, but as of right now - the truck sits "just" high enough to where I want them.

Take a look at our drill-less mud flaps. They are a full size mud flap, but designed to fit each truck. Nice curved lines that disappear into the wheel well. Choice of widths and lengths depending on the coverage you prefer. You can get them black without any weights so they disappear into the tires, or dress your truck up with our custom stainless steel weights.

Kind of like these Duraflaps? Had them made a little longer for more protection for the trailer. The picture of full rear end, the flaps are more than 3 years old.

Ya its going to stay 4wd, not really sure why though as I don't plan on taking it anywhere I should need to use it. I'm looking into the opposite way for stance and would like to have it an inch or two higher on mine.

Thanks for all the suggestions on the flaps.

Agreed! A black set of N-fabs or similarly designed steps would look good on the truck

Well... if you want the truck higher, then you could look into the AMP Research steps. They make some for the Regular Cabs. They're mechanical steps, they're completely hidden until they're activated whenever the door opens.... and when the door closes, they retract (raise) back up under the cab. Gives the truck a really clean look.

Do a google image search for BDS's truck. It's an orange RCSB, lifted. It may be a bit more extreme than what you want, but you could get some ideas from them maybe...
