I am going to put on some steps next week on my 01 GMC D/A Extended Cab shortbed 2500. Have always had bars in the past, mailnly because they looked sturdier. Where is a good place to get good prices and is there any downfall to running boards. What brands are out there. I currenly have a set of Westin's that I pulled off of my 95 Extended cab Z71, but won't work on my 01, my 95 didn't have the rear doors so it only has the 1 cutout for steps.
