Good set of nerf-bars?
 
I'm needing to buy a set of nerf bars for my truck (little brother has a heck of a time climbing up in it! :naughty:) but I'm not sure which way to go.

I want a good set of stainless bars for an extended cab 2001 Ram 1500. I'm hoping some people have some experience with these, I'd rather pay a little more now and now have to worry about them rusting on me in a years time.

Is there a good manufacturer? or should I go through Dodge? (I do have a buddy who works at a local Dodge dealership)

n fab, RBP, Westin, are all good brands with a lot of styles to choose from.

Someone here just bought a good set of SS ones from ebay . And at a decent price . Definitely check that out . My steel Westins rotted away in about 2 years . Boy was I dissappointed . My next set will be SS and probably from ebay .

I looked up n-fab's website and I've got to admit, I really like their look.

I didn't see a stainless steel/mirror finish option for a 2001 cab-length extended cab set (only saw black available) so I e-mailed them and asked if a stainless steel/mirror finish was an option.

$500 doesn't seem too bad though.. The lifetime product and 5 year finish warranty says they really back-up their product.

What brand is SS?

SS = Stainless Steel. Regular steel bars rust pretty fast once winter road salt finds a rock chip, or bare spots on the inside of the tubes where the paint or powder coat didn't cover.
The thin material of a tube bar doesn't handle being a rock rail either...:i_rolleyes::doh:

I got SS ones off craigslist, they are for a Hummer H2. They extended farther down than the normal ones did

That is a interesting setup! Do they bolt ot the frame as well or just to the body under the rocker.

They are to the frame. I have some L-channel I lost the pics of the install to show the brackets. Not bad for buying them for $40, pretty much brand new too.
