How long have they been laying in your back yard? Did they look like that when you took them off your vehicle? You say you've only put 30k miles on them total?

I've got a set of Nfab steps and have had 0 issues with them thus far. I'm only a year in but they don't have any signs of wear and tear yet.

Glad I read this as I was seriously looking at the N-Fab height adjustable nerf bars. I'm trying to find a quality nerf bar that will make it easier for my 5' tall wife to get in and out of the cab. Anyone have any suggestions?

I switched to Weston but no idea how they'll hold up yet. Seem to be better quality than the N Fab and about Half the price.

A couple of observations. Were those angled sections the leading edge on each side? I'm betting they were which means they'll see the most dramatic wear due to rocks, gravel, etc....hitting it. The same could be said for the front tube ends too.

I purchased a set of the steel tube steps from Ebay and just got them yesterday. I am aware they are steel but they seem to be of decent quality for the price. I'm aware they will be torn up over time though and rot from impact damage to the finish.

I'v applied 4-5 thin coats of spray bed liner on them to give them some protection and the same with the mounting brackets. However, I know that no matter which bed liner coating I use it will get pummeled by the road debris. I'm looking at using either 3M rocker panel spray (expensive but worth it) or some black, sacrificial cloth or vinyl tape. I can always re-apply the tape in a couple of strategic areas to give it additional protection. The tape is the cheaper option but I have to re-apply it periodically. I'm not worried about the tape sticking because I can just use a heat gun to warm the surface a bit and it will stick like glue.

I'm going to zap the fasteners with the spray when everything is tightened and in it's final position.

That's great oddball but if they give a 5 year warranty you shouldn't have to worry about all that.
