Who Makes a Good Three Step Nerf Bar??

I'm getting ready to put Ranch Hand bumpers and a headache rack on my truck and whenever funds allow a tool box. However, due to the height of my truck reaching into the bottom (or even the top) of a tool box from the side is going to be difficult. Who makes a good, sturdy nerf bar that extends beyond the rear cab for toolbox access? I want black to match the bumpers. Preferably frame mount if they make those.

Try looking up the n-fab steps. They looked fairly solid when I was checking them out.

N-fab here... Pain in the neck to install.

Great looking 3 step and solid for over a year now.

Iron Cross Automotive wheel-to-wheel. Awesome, easy, sturdy, mount and a real nice black wrinkle powdercoat.

Thanks for all the suggestions. After looking at a lot of them I think my favorite are the Iron Cross HD Steps. No one here suggested them so I don't know how good they are, but they look really sharp.

Hoss, I've had Iron Cross bars on two trucks and have no complaints. American made and mount well.

Picked them up locally for around $480 if I remember right.

Do any of the bars mentioned above mount to the frame or do they all mount to the body?

Mine mounted to the cab mounts and then had extra hangars going to the body. I weigh 250 lbs. and mine are sturdy. Most running boards, etc. make me cringe when I have to actually use them but these don't. Those Iron Cross ones look nice but they wouldn't have matched the diamond plate on my bumper like the ones I ended up with.
