Default Bugger!

Well I went to get in my truck this afternoon and saw this:



It didn't make me happy but I wasn't too upset. Why well, I'm not sure why, but I thought my sides steps came with the truck. My truck is an '09 with only 13,000 on the odometer so I figured I'll take it to the dealer and let them take care of it under warranty; no big deal. I thought they were factory because I can't find a brand mark of any kind.

Well now I'm not sure they did come with the truck. I can't find them on my build sheet and they don't look like any others I've seen on the site.



They do look like the Outland Side Steps but not exact:



The Outlands are not listed for 2009's but I have an early build '09 so maybe.

They also look similar to a few aftermarket steps but with no brand name on them I can't tell.

Does anyone know if these side steps ever came on a 2009 either from the factory or the dealer? It would be nice if they were so I can get them fixed under warranty. Either that or any ideas as to which company might have made them?

Thanks for the help!

I know the feeling...I have Big Country nerf bars on my '09. Back drivers side pad keeps popping up out of the whole....I emailed Big Country over 2 months ago and haven't heard jack from them.

I saw a 3rd GEN Ram in the city yesterday with a similar style. The pads where all cracked and one was missing, plus there was a ton of rust underneath them. Those aren't Mopar brand.

They look like the ones I had on my '98. Only mine where black. I ordered them from Mopar. I dont remember if they had a name on them or not. They rusted off after 8 or 10 years. I had the truck for 14 years.

That's them!

Do you have a fairly early '09 build? I don't know if you bought yours new; if you did were they on the vehicle when you bought it or did you have the dealer add them?

I notice you have a 2008 did yours come with the truck?

Most of the Dodge side steps I see on the 4th gen Rams are straight not the curved so I'm wondering if these were a holdover from from the ')*'s that went on the early '09's.

Fairly early? Yeah...LOL sept 2008. I bought the truck "used" technically. A used car dealership owner in watertown NY bought it new in Alexandria Bay NY at FX Caprara Dodge. Being the owner of a new used car dealership called Farr Auto Sales, Local to Watertown/Fort Drum Area, he covered the truck with his vinyl's advertising his dealership. When the truck got to around 42,000 miles, in november of 2010, he got a brand new one, go his vinyl's removed from this one, and put it on his lot for $26,000. I walked in with cash+trade equity, walked out with the truck for $21,000 out the door. Because the vehicle was never officially registered, I took it to my dodge dealer who was able to get me the lifetime powertrain warranty coverage at dealer cost. Farr Auto Sales worked that into my deal.

Thats exactly what they were. I have never seen a 2010 or higher with this style bars on it.
