N-Fab 6 step nerf bars

Considering getting some N-Fab 6-step nerf bars for the rig. If I do, I will powdercoat them the same tan as my lower paint. Anybody have pics of some they've put on? Thoughts or opinions? Street Side Auto has them for $415 with free shipping, thought that was a hell of a deal.

They look really cool, but I'm not a big fan of them as far as usefulness. I did have the older design and the latest design is a little bit better, but not really a great step if you have height on the truck and need a step to actually get in the truck. Or should I say, the passangers need a step to safely get in the truck. Had mine Line-Xed.
Just my two cents if you've never owned a pair.

I have the four step and love them. I would like to get them line-xed though. They can be a little slippery when wet but they are good and strong and IMO look better then one solid step hanging down.

Being slippery was my biggest issue with them. Line-Xing them helped a little bit. The older one's didn't have as big of a hoop also, so you were pretty much stepping on them with only the balls of your feet. Looks like the new ones have a larger hoop and a little bit bigger platform. Went with the Amp steps this time. They give a nice clean look and a solid platform for all to step on.

The Amps where my first choice too. Just a lot of cash to fork out. Lol If you can swing it those are the way to go but I would say the N-Fabs are second before the standard bars.
