Between the two, I prefer the first set. But overall I prefer the "bar" type like those shown on the second site (also viewed).

Man, such a hard decision. the only reason I am not so much of a fan of the bars is the amount of space in between the bottom of the door/the bracket and the tube itself.

Man, decisions decisions..

Depends on what trim level you have. If you have one with chrome I would go with the second one. If you don't, I would go with the first one.

I have the base Laredo E Group (need to update my signature) so I am leaning towards that one.

Oh, and as a side note, I noticed you have a 93 hog. I have a 1991 FLSTF customed to the hilts as well. Nice choice in rides my friend, nice indeed!

I think I prefer the ones from the second link, wish i could see more pics of them. How are you getting them cheaper than what they are listed?

I bought a few things from the first vendor and because of that and the fact that I am picking them up she reduced the price. As for the second vendor, they just simply said that they would match the price since they are basically the same item (just a different grip pattern)

The second set reminds me alot like Kuryakyn running boards.

That I couldn't tell you. I assume that there have been no changes to the undercarriage but in could be wrong. Also, if you have skid plates, then I think that could be an issue.

yeah I'd be careful of that too since we are very early in MY 14 cycle aftermarket may not have caught up yet.

Make sure they fit your MY 2014.

If so, the second one. Definitely, the second one.
