I think you can download the instructions from their website. I downloaded them from somewhere before I purchased them...

On the 09 and up model - the wires tie into the fuse block in the engine compartment. The installation instructions are very detailed and great!

Well I'll let you know in about three weeks! CCGA I want to say thanks for the heads up on National4wd, they are ordering me a set for my 2010 should be here in 3 weeks. Price for my truck was 1050 plus 75 shipping and taxes. They raised the price to 1149 the next day, said their usd conversion was out of whack but would honor the price as posted when I called them! I can't wait sure glad I didn't order them out of the us in aug for 1300usd plus shipping

Glad to hear, I just love my steps and the fact they hide away when not in use. Now plan to spend about 4 hours on the install (nothing too difficult), hopefully in a heated garage.

Yeah fortunately I've got a fully equipped shop with gas heat to work in. takes about four hours to do? cant wait to see them on, this was the first mod I wanted on my truck when I got it. Wifey talked me out of it now that the level kit is on she thinks steps are a good idea :P

Well winter is pretty much over and here's a report. Steps held up well. I had only one instance of a frozen step not extending because of ice build up on the pass. side. A quick boot and the ice fell off of the step (teflon coating helped) it was fine then. I noticed that salt/sand crap has built up at the front of the step being kicked up from the front tires. In the spring I'll see about adding a rubber or plastic deflector to prevent this as I don't think factory mud guards would extend in far enough.


One thing I would've done during installk would be to add some sort of switch hooked up to the door open idiot light. When powered it would extend my steps (with doors closed) for when I go through a car wash. The alternative to this is open the doors, stand on the step, close doors (keeping the step extended) on both sides, then pull the inline fuse under the hood (assuming that I remembered to pop the hood prior to doing all the door opening/step standing.

Still giving 100% recommendation for the steps. In my mind well worth the money.
