What running boards did you go with? I'm looking to get a set for mine.

I didn't because I found them to be in the way an a big hindrance for the front seats.
but I did find them useful for the back seats.

So now, I find my only option is to get a short retractable for the back seats. ha

I put a leveling kit on mine and it was noticeably harder for me getting into at 5'8". So I found a set of OEM pull offs that I picked up and put them on and it makes it awkward climbing in and out of

I guess they just stick out a little to far!

I got a set of Go Rhino nerd bars. I like them except that they do not come up tight enough to the rocker. Rough Country has the same bars except they got closer like I wanted.

Mike are factory and I would agree, they make it akward to exit. I'm 5' 11" and you feel like you have to stand upright or slide out sideways.

The OEM Colorado/Canyon height/stance really doesn't need steps - but with that said I put on a pair of Westin Nerf Bars because my short wife and elderly mother really appreciate the additional assistance of a step in combination with using the pillar grab handle to get in.

No particular endorsement for Westin is intended, it's just I had them on my F150 also and found them easy to install and decent quality - I suspect most brands are pretty good when it comes to side-steps.

Cons:
- You have one more dirty thing to drag your pants across getting out of the truck
-.It's one more thing to bash in on a rock :) (but mine will stick to forest service roads).

I have a set of Iron Cross HD's on mine made of American Steel here in America! Powder coated boards and brackets with a 5 year Warranty. Had a set on my Silverado also. My dad is 80 and he is the reason I put a set on so that he will continue to go hunting with me.

I went with the Westin HDX steps. Like the look of them a lot. Got them off of Rock Auto for a good price.

Some have said that certain brands of steps, getting in and out of the vehicle, the steps are not placed well for your foot. These are placed well.

The install went pretty well. Instructions weren't the best. Could have been a little more clear. Actually putting the parts together was very easy once I figured it out. They seem pretty solid too.

Thought Westin is made in the US. Not that I'm against Chinese stuff, just thought it would be nice to buy US. Their website said US, but the box the steps came in was Chinese :( should have went with N-Fab for US made. Oh well.
