Default Running Board Recommendations Please

Just ordered a 2012 F150 XLT SuperCrew. I am trying find some running boards and I am trying to find some that do not require drilling. I do not like the idea of drilling a hole into my brand new truck. I would love to find something like the DeeZee FX boards that incorporate a front guard that do not require drilling. I am also open to the nerf bar styles as long as they do not have a huge gap between the nerf bar and the truck body. During the deer season here in Iowa I spend alot of time on gravel roads and I want to limit the rock chips on the doors and body with boards or bars. So far I am considering the Romik Running Board Sidesteps and the Rampage Streamline Bars. If you happen to own either of these products please let me know what you do or do not like about them. Thanks for the help.

I may have found some no drill boards. Were you guys referring to a Raptor brand of running boards? I thought you were referring to the F150 Raptor made by Ford. Here are the Raptor boards: http://www.raptorseries.com/stainles...ing_boards.php

Does anyone have these on their truck? What do you like & dislike about them?
