Bought these in November. I guess their double coating that they brag about ain’t worth a shit.
Only 2 months old and the rust is starting.

Wow that is trash! Nothing a day of work couldn't correct, but that shouldn't be needed after just a few months.

That is not uncommon unless you give it a couple of good wax coats. Do it after you clean the steps and spray some Fluid Film on the supporting brackets.
 
GoRhino all the way!! They have options of textured or not. I always get the textured ones. They are a little pricier than other brands but well worth it!!
 
I bought the NFab RKR step system. Arrived, unboxed, re-boxed and sent back. Construction quality was poor, especially the welds and wasn’t even.

If I find the pictures I’ll post them.

Ended up going with the Westin steps.
 
Well, I contacted NFab.
No hassle at all. Sent me new bars and said no need to return the old ones.
Can’t ask for anything more than that.
I’ll bed coat the new ones.
 
NFAB is junk. Same thing happened to me on prerunner bar. Rusted cracked then they wouldn't honor their warranty. Go Rhino all the way.
 
Rhino doesn’t have a design that I’ve seen yet that looks good.
 
Dominator extreme D6 by Rhino. They look good and are protective and they don't rust and break in half
 
I have the go rhino RB20 boards and hate them. The problem with them is the mounting brackets are basically J's that hang a couple inches lower than the boards and create what effectively are little sideways plow's 4 on each side of the truck. They scrape on everything. I've done a couple of overland expo's and their ride with instructors for their obstacle course were like "wtf" and those courses aren't designed to be bad, tons of sprinters do those and probably made less contact with the ground than me. The dominator D6's look like they have a better system. I'm looking for some sliders (weld on or frame squished or whatever) but seems the reviews are very mixed on those, just a word of advice especially for the less experienced, think about what's going to make contact with the ground or rocks or whatever when you're picking a solution like these. I consider myself pretty tame off road, I'm not out there rock crawling. Attached is a pic that isn't great but you can see how bent up the brackets are getting and thats one of the better ones.
