Default Ram side step bars

So i got this 05 4 door ram awhile back and the seller gave me the mopar side step bars that were on it. I decided to black them out and put them on. He only gave me one of the bolts and rectangular shaped nuts to attach them too the frame so i need 7 more. I tried my local dealer they said they couldn't order the hardware separately. I tried ace, lowes, auto stores, and called mopardodge they also said they couldn't sell the hardware separately. Any ideas seems kinda crazy that these little nuts are that hard to get and it sucks having the bars and no way to attach them. Thanks for the help.

How about getting some flat bar the width & thickness you need, cut the size rectangles you need and tap them yourself? Of course, it would be easier to tap the bar with multiple holes 1st, then cut to size. Shouldn't be too hard to make them.

Good Luck,

Dave...

The only other option I could think of is a hardware/fastener store.

I think the Mopar bars use a heavy duty PEM Nut where they tie into the rocker panel. They have to be drilled out to be removed which is probably why you didn't get them or they are on the truck already (if the bars were ever installed on your truck). You might check and see if you already have them other wise I think you're probably best off going to the dealer for the install kit. I think it's less than $50.
