I've tried 2 differ net sets of nerd bars but I can't get it to mount on right. I dunno, can't tighten it enough so they don't move if you step on it and I did everything right too.
My two cents

I removed my factory nerf bars, made the truck look higher and it stopped my pants from getting crap on them as i got in and out of the truck in the nasty winter months.

Neither, personally I don't really like em unless the truck is really high.
But if you have to have a step bar I would go with nerf bars.
