3" black bar
Steps looks good and work well but the painted bars don't hold up. 5 months and the passenger side has a dime size spot of rust on the top already. This is due to poor metal or contamination under paint not a rock chip. Also where the round steps mount to their body mount are already rusting paint bubbled up. Half of the time of the 5 months they have been in winter conditions but washed every 1-2 weeks...
Sturdy and easy to install
Good looking and easy to install. You need a 21mm socket with a long wrench or breaker bar. I used an anti-seize compound on the bolts before I re-installed them. Two issues. The bars were soiled or oily; a solvent or fluid applied during manufacture? Whatever it was stained and ruined the pad that I used to apply wax before the installation. The other issue was scuff marks or streaks on the bars, not bad enough to warrant a return and not really noticeable once installed. Would buy again.
