    Does anyone know whether the stock running boards off a 2000 LC would fit a 1999? I have stock (black) running boards now and they're beat to crap. I like the look of the painted ones from the 2000 and beyond LC's. The paint color should match, I have Champagne Pearl (aka Silver) on the 99 and assume that same color was offered in 2000.

    Note about running boards - I hate them. Immediately removed from my 4-Runner and sold them on eBay. But the wife and kids need to climb into the LC.

    Thanks for the help.

    Well, I sold my boards to a fellow who had a 00. Now, I have no idea if they fit but he bought them from me and at that time I had a 99 100 series. I cannot imagine 1-the bolt patterns changing that much and 2-if they did, only a small amount of fab would be involved.

    What about tube steps? I got mine without running boards and put on some Go Rhino SS steps. They're not sliders, but they look better than running boards.

    You know what they say...if you have to ask how much, you can't afford 'em. Seriously...I thought I was doing pretty well on the time/labor portion until I got to the grinding/finishing stage...wow did the hours add up then! I don't know how the slider guys are making any money...even when you factor in jigs, better tools, etc.; it's a tough way to make a living I'll tell ya!

    Would you consider posting the diminutions/ drawing on you design? So some of us can make our own?

    Thanks guys. I will keep doing some research and definitely consider some aftermarket tube steps. Those custom step/sliders above are very cool.

    BTW, the dealer here in Northern VA quoted me $750 for the black running boards... replacing the ones I have. And he said the painted silver boards for a 2000 were $900. But he wasn't sure the 2000 boards would fit exactly.
