Who makes your running boards?

I love those door handles. Are the replacements just the handle or the whole assembly?

NFab runners...handle replacements will be whole assembly. Its same price as taking them apart to paint just the handle - in fact cheaper once I sell the handles!

Let me know what you want for the old handles. If the price is right I may go for them Not something I need to replace, but I'd like to change from the flat black textured plastic ones I have.

Cool...I'll post you in cpl weeks when its done. I'll know what the new parts cost and can make more educated prices. Runners are already off as are the roof lights, so they're ready for sale.

Mine are on an 02, but IMHO, the look cheap. On your truck, as set of black paint matched would look nicer.

This is my buddy's dually. He had my style of handles and switched to black paint matched ones.





Handle's when he first bought it:

Ya...my concerns are the same for the plastic parts...they fade. Im still tooling with the paint idea frankly, and agree it would look better.

If I may make a suggestion, look into black chroming the chrome handle piece. It make give you the look you are going for and save you a few $$$.

I agree look into painting the chrome handle it will probably be cheaper. I am going to paint my handle charcoal to match my truck because they are all faded and gross looking...same with my cowl.
