Hey All, I just bought an 03' Envoy and I just joined this site. What a great rescource.

I feel my Envoy just dosnt look "tough" enough and I would like to add something to give it a more off road look. I am debating between nerf bars or running boards. Anyone have any pics they can post to help me decide? Can anyone recommend places to get either of these? Any help or thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks All

Running boards sort of add to the on-road look... Nerf bars or actual rock sliders add to the off road look..

Anecdotal analysis has determined that Running Boards do reduce some of the road debris and rocks from getting on your TV, bars provide no protection.

However I do not think that any real analysis has been conducted on RBs or Bars and which one provides better protection.

So get what YOU like and worry less what others think.:m2:

Running boards only kill the offroad "tough" look. I like the look of nerfs, but my sliders have saved my ass many times offroad and I would use nothing else.

:iagree: if your just just going for the 'tough' offroad look and not hardcore offroad then i'd just go with nerf bars. Look much more badass then running boards. If planning on wheeling it, then sliders like the guys mentioned, but those wouldn't be necessary for just a 'look'. :m2:

i run boards in the winter for more protection, and bars in the summer.

Here is a pic of the nerf bar look. I think I am going to cut my brackets down and tuck them under the body or just take them off. They look nice, but stick out to far. I am getting tired of scrubbing the back of britches leg against a dirty nerf bar.
