I shopped online and at several local dealers before buying The Raptor 4's. I'm old school and was a little leary ot the stainless steel. I'm use to real steel. I weigh 220. But i wanted something strong enough to support anyone that might use them that weighs much more. I like the curved ends without the plastic cap. Because i will only drive the vehicle less than 500 miles a month, i want know the full ability of them for years. So far so good. Makes my tuck look much better too.
Nearly 5 stars, if not for 2 things
Product shipped quick, good packaging. Easy install (1.25hrs), but fought 1 bracket for 20 min. After a few minor cuts due to the sharp edge on the bottom of the boards, I decided the gloves included in the packaging were a good idea. Product sturdy and well built. Looks good. Gripes: 1) sharp edge on the bottom. After careful install, watch out later when washing/drying. They should roll or cover that edge! 2) I wish the front steps extended further back. I'm 6'2" with seat far back.
