I just bought my Rebel a few days ago and am super excited to fit this thing out with some nice functional add-ons. I'm currently debating between the Go Rhino RB20s and the Go Rhino Dominator DSS. I haven't seen much out there as far as Rebels with the DSS side step. If anyone has, curious to see some photos or just get some input on which route to go. thanks!

I like the factory ones. I mean, how often do we really rock bash these trucks? So I think a functional board with good room to step is the best. Rock rails are cool on my Jeeps but I don't need it on a truck this big. It's not going to Moab.

I was between the GR RB20 and DSS. Ended up going with the RB20 and am happy with my choice. I like the mopar off road ones, but they were more than double the price.

I also just acquired a 2021 Ram Rebel. So far...I'm loving it. However, the purchase was based on a deal struck with the misses to get running boards so her 5'1 frame can climb into the truck. I ended up purchasing the Amp Research boards and should be done installing them by the end of the day. They are pricey but rock solid and look good. Let me know if anyone wants to see after its done.

Looks like we have the same problem....my wife is 5'0". I think I'm sold on the Go Rhino D6s, but plan on checking them out in person first tomorrow. I'll have to check those out. Send pics if you have them.

I do! I bought a 21 Rebel and the AMP power running boards are on order as they are part of the deal. I saw them on a 3500 dually and they looked and worked nice.

My Rebel didn't come with the running boards and I was looking at the factory sets, but realized that they are running boards on a sporty truck! So I started looking at the nerf bars instead. For a sporty truck, classy running boards didn't look right to me.

I ended up buying the Westin Pro Traxx 5" Oval nerf bars. I think they keep the truck looking sporty. Unfortunately, I don't have a better pic.

They look great! I'm just too old, with bad knees to comfortably use side steps. I'll post the pictures of my AMP boards once they're installed.

I went with the Mopar CAST ALUMINUM off road running boards with the heavy non-slip texture. You know, after my foot slipping off other running boards and doing the shin bash thing. This is a pretty thick running board, it looks thin with the vents but there's substantial aluminum underneath and they weigh a bit.
