Default Side Steps

Looking at getting a set of side steps for my GV. Looking at companies such as Romik, Direct 4X4, Aries etc. Leaning towards stainless steel as i live in Canada and winters are pretty harsh. My GV is black so either black or stainless would look good but have been warned to stay away from black as it is carbon steel and prone to rusting. Also debating whether to go with a running board or tubular steps. Any opinions or help would be great. If anyone has any pics it would be nice to see. Concerned about quality at this point. Want something that will last. Don't mind paying a bit more to get something better. Leaning towards Romik Max Bar Side Steps.

The tubular stainless steel side steps will be more functional and durable for harsh conditions compared to the running boards. However, will be significantly heavier.

Not too sure of the availability as well as pricings at your location, though.

I am leaning towards a set of 4dr Super Sliders from Rocky Road Outfitters. They are a bit sturdier than steps and don't give off that '70's vibe...

Received some information from them. Looks like they will work for me. Looking forward to ordering and getting installed. Will post some pics after i get them installed. Thanks for your help. Definitely a step up from your regular nerf bars in terms of strength and looks.
