Default Iron Cross Nerf Bar Opinions

I have been looking at the Iron Cross nerf bars for my 2002 Ram and was wondering if anybody has had any experience with the quality of these. I read a bunch of the other threads regarding them but many of the pics aren't there anymore so some new pics would be great! I like the way they seem to fit tight against the rockers.

This is the truck they would be installed on.


This was actually my son Jordan's truck and unfortunately I inherited it when he was killed in combat in Iraq. To date I haven't done anything to it at all and drive it only occasionally so I don't rack up to many miles. It really brings back a ton of good memories for me every time I drive it but because of the lift it is getting to be a challenge for my creaky knees to get in and out of it, hence the nerf bars.

Any feedback or photo's that you guys can share is appreciated.

I'm truly sorry for your loss, hope this helps with your search, installation is very easy, and they are a great product. I know my truck is a 4th gen, but you'll be happy with them

Thanks Tim....
Very nice truck! I have a 2012 Big Horn that I just had leveled and put some Westin bars on it but I think the 2002 would look great with the IC's. Thanks for taking the time to post a pic.

That's a great looking truck - you rarely see reg cabs on the road nowadays and if I wasn't married with two big dogs, I'd have a reg cab.

I haven't checked out the IC nerf bars in person but I think they would look good on that rig.

Thanks...

I really like the truck and it is in great shape so I want to keep it that way. It's perfect for a 19 year old...lift, loud exhaust, loud stereo with sub and miniature buttons, blacked out tinting, etc...I have trouble getting up into the truck, the exhaust gives me headache on the open road, I can't see through the windows at night, and I still haven't figured out how to turn the stereo on and off, LOL! He bought it with 30K on the clock and racked up another 40K in less than a year driving 12 hours one way from SC to NY to see his girlfriend on weekends.

I just want to say that people like your son are true heroes and have more guts than most in this world. Honored that he defended our country.

Thos bars look great too, I'm looking into the nfab ones but the same style as the iron cross. Would love to see them on an 02.
