Hey, that's my truck! :)

Mine are N-Fab and they are available in the wheel to wheel config also. Just cost about $150 more and have 3 steps instead of the 2 on mine.

FYI, when my set came in the first time the instructions listed them as being 3rd gen, so I sent them back to the distributor for the "correct" set for a 2nd gen. Guess what, the "correct" set showed up and was the same part number as the first set but had instructions for a 2nd gen.....I guess they are same.

Additionally, I was unhappy with the way they just mounted to the pinch rail. A bit too much flex for me. So I made some brackets that we welded to the back side of the steps and bolted to the underside of the cab. Solid as a rock now!

Yep, they have 3 "blocks" for lack of a better word that are basically box steel sections. They are welded to the bar are almost equal points and they have holes through them. You drill 6 holes through the pinch weld and bolt them up. They are not going anywhere, but they do have a bit of flex. I think there is another manufacturer that make a very similar step that uses the same mount style and the Carr steps that have been around forever mount that way also.

Also, if I am not mistaken Smittybilt bought N-Fab.
