So after driving an OB with the 2.7 and a Badlands with a 2.3, MT this past weekend, I am leaning towards the 2.3 MT, only offered on BD and BL. But to save some money, starting with the Black Diamond trim. My question is on the tube step/running boards, which is not an option on the BD, and something I want. Has anyone found if there is a decent aftermarket for those?

If you look at the dominator sets, they are claiming to also offer some sort of slider support. Don't know if they would support the entire vehicle dropping down on it though.

You could also use your Ford reward points and purchase the factory ones for about half price.

Didn't the BD come with rock sliders or is that just the BL?

Also make sure you compare what you're missing out on by going with the BD. The BL would be a much better choice.

FYI on the Rhino RB20's - I have them on my Ram. They are tapered, the front of the step is about 1.5" wider than the rear. If you are ocd about parallel lines, don't pick these. They do work and look great otherwise.

This would be even more fun if us 2-door folks got some choices...

2-door owners are like the red-headed step children of jeeps and broncos.

Got a set for my 4 door $259
those look sharp. Where did you find them for $259? The GoRhino site has them for $351.

Ya, that tapered look might take some getting used to.
