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.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
