Need to Replace Side Runner Tubular Sidesteps

So, I went on to Rovers North website to if what is available. I came to find out that there are two choices. One a Land Rover genuine part and one a ProLine part. TUBULAR SIDESTEP PAIR D90 BLACK, RNB066, VPLDP0068 - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts
Not a lot of information on the website comparing the two. Just wondering if anyone has any experience regarding either of them?

ProLine is RN's private label and in my experience meets or exceeds LR original build quality at substantial savings.

I realize that sometimes you just have to go original but for a part like side steps I wouldn't think you could go wrong.

FWIW

You would be amazed by the lack of differences of the two pieces. I typically make my decision on brands by a few factors. Importance of part, price, difficulty to install, and what we have in stock while my truck is apart in the shop

Thanks for the URL !!
From it I was able to see that RN offers the plastic end caps for the step treads.
Many members here have been trying to locate these.
