Nerf Bars Installed (with pics)

Easy to install. All necesarry hardware included. Takes about 20 minutes or so to put on.



The below picture actual shows the mounting bracket installed incorrectly because it came mislabeled. This is labeled as the forward driver side bracket, but the mounting holes should be pointed left (outward) not inward. This was an easy fix but took an extra 10 minutes to figure it out. Also, the reinforcement piece that you see on the ground has to be removed and can't be reinstalled due to placement of the nerf bar support bracket. These help support the lower fascia body piece, but I did zip tie it too the nerf bracket for support. The piece seems like it's firmly in place and I don't think it will be a problem because there are other support pieces still in place. But I will keep an eye on it.



Here it is installed:

Thanks. I'm real happy with them. Just got one more mod to the outside... you'll see it in a few weeks.

It may not be everyone's style but I'm happy. They could have made the bull bar tube diameter the same as the nerf bar for a more uniform look, but I still like it.

Thanks for the info, that's the one Im looking for. I asked my deaaler for this, but unfortunately, it's not available and they offered me instead a running board which cost $1600 + intallation. Do they have a chrome plated one?

I don't know about the chrome. All he was offering at the time was black powder coat. You can ask Jack to ask the manufacturer... he's nice guy to work with.
