Strong HD Running Boards

I need to find a replacement set of running boards for my truck

I am currently running Dee Zee FX Series, in black finish

One was damaged in an accident and they were found to be discontinued

I have a quad cab, and only want cab coverage.......not wheel to wheel

Any recommendations or suggestions?

let me check the model on mine. I got the heaviest made I could find, as I am a big boy and didnt want them drooping to the ground when I stepped on them. The guy I got them from, showed me the difference and why they were better.... but the model escapes me right now... sorry

I know Dee Zee still makes the same exact style I currently have, but not in the black finish

They only sell the boards in a bright tread aluminum

I wonder if I could get the boards sprayed with black LineX?

Have you checked out the retracting steps from AMPsteps? They are T6 anodized aluminum, very strong, and the fact that they retract under the truck does safeguard them and gives you more ground clearance. Of course, they are spendy.

Not interested in spending $1,200 on steps

I can get the same style of Dee Zee boards I currently have for $300 shipped

I would imagine it would not be more than $200 to have them sprayed with black LineX
