Default advice on Nerf Bars

New to pickup trucks and I'm looking for Nerf bars for my new Ram Big Horn QUAD cab. I checked on Westin's website and they don't list a Quad; only Regular, Extended and Crew. What's up with that??

Living in a salty environment I think I want the stainless steel variety but not sure what fits my truck. Is it the 23-3550 or the 23-3560?

I am open to recommendations.....

You might want to consider going with powdercoating vs. a thin chrome or painted nerf bar. Also, have you considered a step bar vs. a nerf?

Something like this NFab step bar:



I'd look beyond Westin to some other mfgrs (Go Rhino, NFab, Aries, etc...) just to see who's making what these days.

Good luck with your search.

I agree with Maddog on looking beyond westin. I went with the Mopar but the steps shown above look real good too.

Thanks for the replies! I will do some research on those suggestions; besides maybe I don't want to deal with a company that doesn't understand the body styles. I guess i should wait until the companies open up tomorrow and start making some calls.

Regardless of what Chrysler calls it, the quad cab is the equivalent of extended for the other manufacturers. Since you know you don't have a crew or a regular cab, whatever is left is the correct answer. I got a hell of a deal on my deezee rails off Amazon because someone with a quad cab decided that since his cab wasn't extended he would order crew rails and returned them when they were too long.

I would stay away from GoRhino. I have them on mine, second set in 4 months! The powder flake was horrible on my first set. It seemed to just fall off the bars. It took me two months of emails + phone calls. I had to send them the same pictures three times. They finally honored their warranty, but it was not easy. We'll see how this set holds up.
