Step bar: Westin GenX or N-Fab wheel to wheel?


Recommended Posts

Looking to get some side steps for my Sierra. Narrowed it down to either the Westin GenX oval nerf step bar or the N-Fab nerf step wheel to wheel. Any opinions and pics on both appreciated.

Thanks!

I have the 3 step n-fabs. All in all I'm fairly satisfied with them. I do think the step part could be a little wider and deeper. Fit and finish is fair. I'm not happy with the passenger side mount. They leave the front mounting tab off, since the DEF tank would be in the way on a diesel. I have a Gasser so I want that 3rd tab for additional support. I've had them for just about a year. They've taken some beating as my truck works in the winter as a plow truck, and the steps show that. The powder coating has flaked off in some areas and there's now some minor rust.

Here's a picture of my truck with the N-Fab wheel to wheel (sorry, not the best angle).

I like them, the step is just fine for getting in, if it were further back it would be hard to swing your other leg in. It takes a little getting used to getting out though. I do wish they didn't stick down quite so much (and I do have the 2.5" leveling kit on there), but they work well. They are very tough (much tougher than the cab of the truck), I did take the slick, gaudy orange N-Fab stickers off the step part and put on no-skid tape.
