Amp reaserch steps vs nerf bar side steps

hey guys just wondering what some of your thoughts were. Im thinking about getting some type of step for my 8.5 in lifted 03 7.3. I defintly like the concept on the amp reaserch but am a little woried that i would maybe hit something and break them while off roading. Ive also looked at some steps like the RBP side step 1. I think those look pretty mean and make the truck look like its a true off roader. Im kinda leaning toward the RBP side step as it is half the price of the amps. Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks

Personally I like the AMP steps. They tuck up nice and tight and give you a real clean look. You're more likely to mess up hanging steps than the AMPs

The Amps are truly great. You will rip something else up before you get into the Amps. Snow, slush, ice mine have yet to fail & are still as fast as the day I got them. Very much worth the $$$

If I had the space, my truck would have Amp's on it. As others have said, if you're wheeling hard enough to mess up the Amp's, you'd certainly tear up a set of nerf bars also.
