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.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
