I like the wider step. Some tint and a spray in liner would be nice also. Work truck? What work truck?

Nice truck but I like the look of the new GMC's better than the Chevies. They look tougher. I wish I had your problem of trying to decide which running boards to put on my new truck. Business must be good with all these jobs shown.

Yup, good year. Honestly, I like the GMC's more too but this one has grown on me a lot. Once I'm done with it I'll certainly like it even more.

I was looking at another $4,000 for the GMC based on availability + a 2hr drive, one way. Got a good deal and drove it home. They didn't want to give me the price I was looking for but when I headed for the door and told them I'm going to buy a GMC they bit

I like the auto drop down steps. I friend of mine just got them on his lifted 07 GMC and I stare in jealousy every time I see them. That said, I have the tubes on my 02 GMC and I think they look decent.

WTF Thomas, you hijacked your own thread.

Who gives a sh!t? It's a friggin truck. Just don't go putting loud exhaust on a company truck. It's borderline unprofessional.

Now let's see more project photos..... you guys are worse than women with your "accessorizing".

Don't worry, I ordered a stack exhaust today but only doing one big 24" in the middle. The bed is going to transform into a bbq'r with Dip N Dots ice cream on the right and smoothies on the left. I'm also putting air bags and 24" spinners on it cause its real tight and thats how I roll. Tomorrow I'm going to Pep Boys for some fake me out Fast and the Furious stickers. Being in the 'know' I heard you get 50hp and 800tq but you didn't hear it from me.

Simple question....which step sides look best on the truck, have a beer, they're on order.
