I recently acquired a 2018 Tundra SR5 Extra Cab in white. Bone stock, but thinking about a mild lift ~3" or so. Anyway, my entry into the cab requires me to grab the steering wheel, right foot in the foot-well, then hoist myself in. No matter how I do it, my butt slides across the outside edge of the driver's seat, and I end up kicking some of the plastic trim. So, thinking about some step rails and thought I would ask for advice. Lots of options I know. I prefer the matte black look over chrome, and flat rather than tubes. I've been shopping around and it seems that some of the aftermarket stuff works, but lots of complaints about hardware compatibility and installation frustrations. I'm ok with a wrench but definitely not a master mechanic. The OEM boards https://www.toyotapartsdeal.com/oem/toyota~running~board~tundr~pt767-34160.html
About 30% more than some of the aftermarket boards out there. Any advice? My use of the truck is commuting, daily travel to the grocery, vacation trips on the road. I don't do rock crawling or plan to challenge the undercarriage clearance. Are the OEM's worth the price, or is there a comparable running board that I should consider.
BTW... I treat my trucks gently. My previous Tundra was an '02. Every time I drive them it is as if I have a $40,000 bill in my hands.
