Step Board / Running Board Help

I want to buy step boards for my truck. I have a double cab 2003 tacoma. What are the factory boards that toyota uses?? I checked the website and it says "steel horse" but I can't find them on the internet anywere. The dealer is a bit expensive...Does anyone know a cheaper way to go about this. I can't do it myself. When I call places they have a ton of questions that i was not prepared for....
What material do I want? (alum, fiberglass, plastic, molded....)
Anything in particular that I should be looking for??? I like the ones that come factory, but I can't find them

Well the one's that the dealer sell are the Chrome plated steel step bar with an indention and plastic insert for a foot step they are about $330 ya that's a little pricey, I had to install a set for my wife. Try going to your average auto parts store like Pep boys if You want ones that look similar, some Pep boys have shop's that can install these for You but if You want to save $$$$$$$$ then do it yourself and if You have a teen age kid have him/her help, the hardest part is lining up the bar bolt holes with the brackets that You install.
