|CTD_CR924||Bought Iconic brand running boards for just over $200 when they were on sale. Easy install, less than an hour. I like them.|

They would have been a pretty easy install, directions were good except for the part where the bracket was hitting the gusset which isn't supposed to happen. The other side was a close fit in the same spot, but it went together.

|Justintoxicated||I decided I'm going to go with the rugged sturdy amazon ones for now. Maybe someday I'll get the cool electronic ones though. I have always wanted them, but I'm going to put the extra money into new struts, and maybe some bed liner and a coolant flush.|

My 06 I bought with them and the 18 I let the dealer do. Turned out the 18 had to have air tank relocated some so I'm glad I let the dealer do it. Getting lazy in my old age but really didn't have a 1/2 day to mess with it.

Brackets & bolts included. You would need to install your own rivnuts.
Local pick up would be the best. Pic shows what they look like on my truck. Sorry, canít edit the photo orientation.

I think the transmission filters were changed when the transmission was rebuilt, but I'm not positive.
I want to get the bed lined with rhino or line-X and I need to replace the suspension, so I'm thinking power steps are off the table for now. Are power steps hard to install? I could do the other things first and save up if they are worth it. I have a herniated disk in my back and just wanted to be able to easier get into the truck so a cheaper set of nerfs seemed like the way to go.
I'm liking the durable looking amazon Tyger steps. I could possibly find myself in a situation where they end up dragging though, I don't off road the beast much, but we do pull campers through sand and have been stuck (not recently with the 35's but it could happen) Not sure how well the power steps would handle the sand either?
The ICI's look nice too because there is a step to assist in getting things out of the bed.

|02smokin||Amp steps here, worth every penny imo. Personally I canít stand the look of any steps on trucks, hate it. Amp steps are the only thing I could stand and there awesome|

|274Mike-MD||I got mine similar to Shorts at LMC truck. They are black. What I would do differently, is have them Line-X'd before you put them on. They are a no drill install, but, you still need to manipulate the brackets as nothing is 100%, just alittle bracket tweaking is all that was needed.|

I Installed a set of $150 nerf bars from the truck accessory store, they're called Luvernes. They attach to the body mounts on the truck so they're pretty strong. And they sit a little lower and not right up against the rocker panels so you have room to put your foot on the step pad. These have been on the truck 10yrs now and are starting to fade, but they are structurally doing alright. I've debated pulling them off to repaint. Or get news ones but they do fine. I have never dragged them or hit stuff with them, but I don't drive in situations where they would be the hang up point.
Most recent pic. Angle of the photo makes that gap look huge!

If money is a constraining factor ignore the AMP steps recommendations, they are nice but the price will reflect (~$1200 or more) I had some generic Steelcraft on my old '07 QuadCab I picked up from Autoanything.com. They lasted me 4 years with zero issues and it looks like they're still on the old truck when I see it running around my old stomping grounds in FL from time to time.
You say 05 crew cab (which technically doesn't exist as others had mentioned), the 4 door (non-suicide) cab configuration is still referred to as the quadcab. Megacab's came out in '06 which is a larger crew cab, are you referring to a megacab or standard 4 door (non-suicide) quadcab? There should be nerf bars, running boards, and steps all over regardless of cab configuration.
