Get the stainless steel, if you do. I got the black, painted Rugged Ridge entry guards and the paint is coming off, rust is forming. Don't like it butting up against the vehicles paint either. Going to get a new set, this time they will be SS. Other then that, mine had the 3M double sided tape and they are a BIATCH to get off! That tape is something else! Going to try a heat gun to loosen them up.....good luck!
