running boards for ford

What type of running boards/stainless steel tube, does ford use for the trucks, or are they all aftermarket? and dealer provided, if so what are the best for ford or does it matter, its just a preference?

looking at getting some for my son, he needs a ladder.

Westin is an excellent aftermarket mfg and does a lot of design & limited production work for the oems.

My truck came with aftermarket round tube steps (cab length). I replaced them with factory platform running boards because the round chrome was slippery for my kids. Also, the tubes don't keep road debris from hitting the side of the truck, which can lead to rust.

I sold my tube steps on craigslist and then bought the factory running boards on craigslist for no net cost. As a bonus, the factory ones I got are from on Excursion, so they have the courtesy lights on them.
