Nurf Bars

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
