"2016 double cab tacoma. Great for the price!"
These are great for the price. You cannot beat it. It was well packaged and the coating isnt just a matte paint, it has a.. scaly/flakey, for lack of a better word, texture. It looks good and durable. The brackets are adequate and provide plenty of strength.
As one review pointed out, the foot grips have a design on them and they are in the same position on both bars (not mirrored). Its not obvious and no one will be looking at both bars at the same time so it will be unnoticeable. not a reason to hurt its rating though.
Installation was as easy as possible. No lock washers but I prefer blue locktite anyway. Took about 30 minutes. install all of the bolts loosely so there is play, then position the bar and tighten everything down. Photos attached since some of the other photos dont show the angles I wanted ... full review
"Thanks for making this easy to install!"
(Vernal, Utah United States)
I am mildly suspicious of reviews, believing sellers can potentially manipulate the process. I purchased the product hoping they would be easy to install I was not disappointed. The ease of installation exceeded my expectations. And the product looks amazing once installed.
Fit my 2017 tacoma double cab SR5 perfecly, love the look! Took about 30 minutes or so to install.Only issue was that I notice about a dime sized dent (pic) after I installed them, when the light hit them just right, notified seller, haven't heard back yet (it's only been a few days). Just inspect closely BEFORE installing.
Was a bit worried about trying to hang these by myself, but they went on with no problems. Very well made and look great on my 2018 Tacoma SR5. Very simple to install, only Three tools needed, metric socket set, flat tip screw driver and a 16mm wrench.
"Love the simplistic look of these running boards"
Love the simplistic look of these running boards. They were easy to install and I am not mechanically inclined. Took me about 1 hr 15 min to do the job. Good quality and makes a nice visual addition to my new Tacoma.
"Look great and install is a breeze!"
Just received the running boards for my 2018 Tacoma and installed them, by myself, in 30 minutes. Look great and feel very sturdy. Dealer was charging me over$700 for option, without labor... im really happy, will update review in a couple of months and provide details on durability, appearance, etc...
The order arrived quickly, however the packaging was a little questionable. There was one small scratch on the bottom of one of the bars; it was acceptable to me as it is not visible when installed. Instructions (not needed) and installation bolts/washers (very much needed) were included in the shrink wrap somewhere. It took some time to locate by frantically sorting through packaging material several times until they majestically dropped to the garage floor! Whew, I can now take back the $23 worth of stainless steel bolts and washers I purchased at Lowe's when I could not find the included hardware, thank you shrink wrap gods!
Installation is simple with 5 bolts on each side, an extra hand is useful to support while getting the center bolt started - mounting brackets lined up perfect with OEM 8mm threaded mount holes. Installation time is like 10 minutes a side.
