Aftermarket Running Boards / Nerf Bars?

Does anyone know if ionic running boards are very high quality? What about go rhino? I am looking to switch the boards on my truck as I don't like the black plastic ones.

I am interested in the following boards:

Ionic-Gladiator Brite Running Boards

5" Railway Chrome Running Boards Ford F250/350/450/550 SD Super Cab 1999-2014

Go Rhino 5" O.E. Xtreme Oval Chrome Side Bars Ford F250/350/450/550 SD Super Cab 1999-2014

Any suggestions/experience would be appreciated. I can't see spending over a grand on the factory ford boards.

Thanks!

Mods - H&S Mini Maxx, 5" Flo-Pro DP Back, 2" Leveling Kit, 305/55R20 Toyo ATII's

Where are you located? (may be interested in the roll n lock, as my truck is a supercab and the boards would not work)

You can look on here or Craigslist and get a pair of OEM steps for pretty cheap. A lot of people take them off to install AMP or other aftermarket steps. I sold my OEM steps for $300. I bought NFab steps but I wouldn't recommend them. The finish/powder coat is crap and the steps are slippery when they're wet and are too small for a workbook to fit in the step.

Plus 1 for AMP Research or BestTop Powerboards. I have the BestTops and they are one of the greatest things I added to the truck. They actually come down to a usable height (I use em every time I get in the truck and I'm 6'2"), plus they go up and out of the way so you won't hang em up on something (which is why I got them in the first place).

If you live in a cold climate with snow and ice, be prepared for power steps like Amp or Best Top to get hung up when ice gets jammed and wedged in the step mechanism/brackets and hinges. There's lots of high end SUVs here with power running boards that are all stuck in the open position until it warms up. Makes me wonder if the motor is still trying to continually work each door cycle burning itself out. The power boards can also flap or flutter in the wind. I also don't like how there is only one motor per step. The side with the motor usually hugs the step close to the pinch welds for that clean unnoticeable look while the other side has no motor and hangs noticeably lower. If you don't account for this, your steps look like they aren't level/crappy install done. The best steps I've used are the OEM ones. Large enough to get good traction in any shoe or boot and very strong.
