OBS Steps

I'm looking to buy some steps for my 1997 Crew OBS. I've looked at Bully and from what I've read, AMP's aren't a direct fit.

So what brand makes steps that fit our OBS? If not steps, are there nerf bars that fit our OBS? I prefer the look of steps, but if they don't exist, I would consider some nerf bars.

If you have any pictures of your OBS with steps, I'd like to see them.

I went with the Carr Super Hoop. I like the black steps better on my white
truck. Fit was real good. You have to drill a few holes.

I have had steps and nerf bars - I really like the nerf bars. I have had only one brand of steps and my paint kept coming off and had to keep modifying the brackets to keep them from moving around too much. I am sure not all steps are like what I had but good luck.

I know that KODIAK makes steps for the trucks, at least their website says they still do.

They retract when you close the door, and extend down when you open it. 8" and 12" steps are available.

Id probably get those if I needed steps.

Here is a link to the nerf bars that I purchased. I have had them for a few years and at the time Auto Anything was the cheapest that I found. I really like Westin and so far they have held up great - with another person it was an easy install.
