Default Westin Nerf Bars .

I was out the other afternoon . Stopped by the store . Parked beside another ram . Saw he had Westins Platinum Series on it . Looked closely at them and saw the black paint just falling off these things . Boy if I weren't ever disappointed . After my first go around with the steel ones rotting away , I was gonna buy a set of these next . Well my mind is made up . Going to look for another manufacturer . If Westin doesn't start turning out a better product their gonna be out of business . Anybody out there recommend a set of bars for a '01 Quad Cab .

Funny you should mention that. My neighbor with the same set of bars on the same year truck as yours just took his off for corrosion problems. Lund makes some good stuff.

Lund & RBP would be good to check. Maybe even SmittyBilt.

I went with GM. Seem to be holding up pretty good. Not sure who makes them for them.
They are off a H2 Hummer, picked them up for $40 on craigslist.

I had some called "Back Country" on my '08. They seemed to hold up fairly well, though we don't have the salt/sand, snow, etc to deal with in Louisiana. I think I got them from Mechanics Warehouse.

I had some on my F-150 that were even better, though I can't remember who made 'em. All t hat I know is that they had a Maltese cross (like the symbol for the Fire Department) on them, in the rubber step pads. I couldn't remember where I got them, as I tried to find 'em again for the Ram.

I have smittybilt on mine looks sharp still look pretty clean!!!! no coating is peeling or coming off either!! seeing as i didnt own the truck when they were first put on i don't no how often they were cleaned but there is no rusting on them either!!

Back Country are also another nice looking bar! my dad has had those for about 4 years now and they still look new!!

That's too bad. I always thought Westin made some good stuff. Their aftermarket accessories definitely aren't cheap either. I had factory nerf bars on my trucks.
