Make your truck easier to climb in and out of with a set of Toyota Tundra side steps. Side steps or running boards are simple accessories that mount to the sides of your truck and give you a location to step up and down on. If you have any difficulties climbing in your pickup truck, a good set of steps can make things easier for you. It's not easy to choose the perfect set of steps or nerf bars for your needs, though. With so many different products available here at Extreme Terrain, you can choose the width, the grip type, and the style of step you want for your truck. Get more familiar with the different options and choose a product that fits your needs best overall. Once you have a good set of steps, you can make your pickup even more accessible with a truck bed step as well for rear cargo access.
Toyota Tundra Nerf Bars
The first step and the most important part of choosing Toyota Tundra side steps for your truck is picking out products that fit your truck properly. There are different Tundra models with different mounting points for accessories. When you choose nerf bars that are meant for your year and trim level Tundra, the steps will line up with mounting points and lockdown much more easily than they otherwise would. If you don't want to deal with the time it takes to modify your steps to get them to fit on the wrong track; it's faster and easier to purchase a set of matching steps for your pickup.
A quality set of nerf bars will help your Tundra by:
- making it easier to climb in and out of
- protecting the sides of your pickup from impacts
- adding a stylish accent to your ride
- giving you more access to your truck bed
Once you have Tundra nerf bars that fit your ride properly, it's time to think about the width, the grip type, and the length of the steps or nerf bars you choose for your ride. We offer a range of step widths to choose from, which means you can decide exactly how wide the steps are that get installed on your pickup. Wider steps are more convenient and comfortable to use, but they aren't always the right solution. Some Tundra owners that want a sleeker look opt for more narrow side steps in order to preserve that appearance. When choosing steps, you want something with a grip-enhancing texture. Look for a rough texture, a diamond pattern, and a rubber gripping surface. Choose steps that offer the best grip possible, and you'll be able to climb up and down more reliably. Along with a good set of side steps for your Tundra, you should consider floor mats for your truck's interior to help keep it clean if you're working in dirty or snowy environments regularly.
Toyota Tundra CrewMax Running Boards
Finally, the last thing to look at when selecting Toyota Tundra side steps is the way they look. If you already have some exterior trim on your truck, you should try and match your steps with the look of that trim for a more pleasing appearance. If you don't have trim already, you should look at the color and the style of steps or running boards to make sure you get something that will go well on your pickup. If you have a Tundra CrewMax, we have running boards that will go well with the exterior accents that pickup comes with. With so many different chrome, black chrome, matte black, stainless steel, and brushed aluminum options to work with, you should be able to find a color and style of side steps or running boards that look good on your Toyota Tundra. Choose a product that's going to help you use your truck more comfortably, and you'll be glad you spent the time choosing the right product.
