Nurf Bars

8 posts in this topic

I have a Ford Super Crew 4 door and want to put nerfs on it.

Just wondering what others have done and where to find them?

I have always had running boards on my trucks. The truck I have now came with nerf bars. Personally I can't stand the nerf bars. They don't offer any protection to the bottom of the truck and they seem to be more slippery when wet or snowy. My wife and son also said they prefer running boards. Just my opinion.

My F-150 came with them from the factory. They're better than nothing but I liked the running boards on my old one better.

I bought the Ford 4 inch step bars from my dealer. They went on without a hitch and have 3 supports on each side. I didn't like the idea of a bar with support just at each end.

If you do get nerf bars, get a good stainless steel set, as the chrome ones (if still avail) just rust out after a couple years with all the salt in the winter.

Personally I dont like them. They cause more damage than they prevent, and I think a truck looks best without nerfs or running boards. Plus both me and my wife are tall enough that we dont need them anyway.

Westin CPS (Chrome Plated Stainless)

Places like Radco should carry them.

Pretty simple installation as well. Simple hand tools and a couple hours and you should have them on no problem.

I've had mine on my truck for over 6 years now and they still shine up nice. I think they have great traction and footing for getting into and out of a truck, much better than running boards IMO.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
