Nerf bar question 2002 Quadcab
Hello everyone need some thoughts and or opinions here!
I just purchased some oem 3" step bars from a friend
For my 2002 quadcab. Truck they came off of was sold and my friend
Thought it was an '08 but I think it was an '09. Got the brackets and the bars
Bolted on although on an '02 there were no
Hex holes below the holes that the T bolts
Fit but I made it work and the brace. Bolted
Up tight so the front is solid. My problem is with the rear- the bracket is held on
By one T bolt and there is no brace to bolt to
The undercarriage like the front and I am
Uncomfortable with it because if I step back
There I can see a slight give in the whole bar.
I need to fabricate a brace but what's funny is the
Undercarriage bolt doesn't fall straight in line with
The bracket so I may have to bolt it to the frame which I don't want to go
Drilling holes in if not necessary. Can't get a kit for these bars because they
Stop short just after the 90 degree bend so a different set
Of bars would be in order if I can't fabricate a brace which I am trying to
Avoid. So does anyone have any recommendations? I know I should have examined the bracket situation closer but I am so close to a fix to give up! Any advice or thoughts will be much appreciated!

I couldn't say without having a look at it. But this will bump you to the top.

Thanks for the reply. It is kinda hard without seeing. Pretty much decided I'm going to just sell these bars and get some that actually fit a 2002.
