Default black,chrome or stainless nerf step bars ?

Hi , I am going to put nerf bars on my new 09 Ranger sport super cab. Several salesmen have told me that the black powder coating is very tough and durable, also $100-$200 cheaper (Westin) But I have been watching for trucks with bars on them around town and have noticed that most of the black are in very bad shape, rusted and look like crap. Not sure which brands they are. I live in Canada and good Westins are Black $3-$400 and chrome $5-$600

Any experiences or thoughts would be appreciated

Thankyou

I would definitely look into seeing if someone is getting rid of their OEM ones like Dixie is. If you want them to more durable take them to get line-x on them.
