Today on this 2009 Chevy 3500 HD Pickup we will be installing Westin running boards part number 26-1400. The first thing we are going to do in preparation is to go ahead and lay out all of our hardware and make sure that all of the components are there. The next step is to go ahead and remove the existing body mount bolts from the underside of the cab. There are two. You can see one here at the front right at the hinge portion of the front door and then one here more towards the middle section on 05 and older models you will need to actually remove these bolts and use new hardware. On 06 and up models we are actually going to be reusing these body mount bolts.
You will notice that the rubber spacer will likely come out as well and that is okay. Next we are going to go ahead and install the mounting brackets themselves along with the spacer tubes. The front most mounting bracket will be the one that we are going to be using the spacer tube on. That is going to install just like that. If your rubber spacer did come out when you removed your bolt you will need to put that back up into place as well. Being a newer I am going to reuse the existing bolt so we do not have to worry about adding any flat washers or lock washers as well. We want to make sure that we have the open portion of the bracket facing the front of the vehicle. 01:31
I am just going to snug that up for the time being until we make our final adjustments and then we can go ahead and tighten it down fully. Then we are going to install the mounting bracket at the rear body mount. This particular location we will not be using the spacer. Next we can go ahead and install our running board. You will note that there is a slight difference in between the two running boards. To figure out which one is which you can set them up and note there is a slight variance at the ends of the legs here. You want the longer side of the leg towards the rear of the vehicle. Using the 1/ 2 by 13 by 1 3/ 4 inch hex head bolt along with the flat washer and lock washer we are going to be ing that from the inside of the bracket through the oblong hole here and threading it to the weld nut here on the back side of the running board. Okay, with the running board loosely installed onto the brackets we can go ahead and actually open our door. Again with there being oblong holes in the bracket we have got some variance where we can mount the running board. So what you want to do for your personal preference go ahead and set up the pad where you want it in reference to the floor board. Once you have got that figured out you can go ahead and start tightening your bolts down going into the running board and then we will go back through and torque all of our bolts down. Okay and now we are going to go ahead and torque our bolts down. You want to check with the directions to verify the appropriate torque rating for both sets of bolts. This will conclude the installation of Westin running board part number 26-1400 on a 2009 Chevy 3500 HD Pickup.03:22
Today on our 2011 Chevy Silverado, we'll be installing the Bully Bar Tube Steps part # NB-105. Before we begin installation, we'll go ahead and lay our parts out. We'll need to identify the front and rear or short and long brackets and then our center bracket. Because we're working with the 2006 and newer application, we'll be reusing the manufacturer's hardware. First we'll go ahead and remove the front cab corner body mount bolt and bushing. Now we're ready to install the front bracket.
Today on this 2010 Chevy Silverado, were gonna install part number NB-109 from Pilot.Our attachment points are on the body bolts on this vehicle and there are three of them as theyre shown here.Next step is well go ahead and layout our parts. We have a short bracket that goes on the front and then the long bracket that stays in the center and then a tall bracket that goes in the back.So well go ahead and loosen up the body bolts. You want to do this by hand first because some of the models have a thread locker on there and an air ratchet could break the nut inside the body. When we take the bolts out, you wanna prepare the stock bolts to the bolts that come with the kit. Some models have a thicker bolt. If thats the case, go ahead and use the factory bolts.
Today on this 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Series HD regular cab we are going to be installing Westin nerf bar part number 23-1400. We are looking at the driver side of the vehicle and the first thing we want to do is locate the body mount, the front and rear. The front body mount is located just rear of the front tire. If you follow rearward just about even with the edge of the door just below it is our rear body mount and that is what we are going to be attaching our nerf bar set up to. With those located we are going to start with the front body mount and what we want to do is remove the existing bolt. You can see that it is likely that the rubber bushing is going to come down as well and that is fine. We want to take that and set it off to the side for the time being and remove the rear body mount bolt. 00:55
Today at Etrailer.com we are going to be working on this 2006 Chevrolet 2500 HD Series. We are going to be installing part number 23-1950 from Westin. The first thing we are going to do is we are going to want to remove the forward, center, and rear most body mount bolts. That is where our tube steps are actually going to mount. The first thing we are going to do is remove the bolts. Now that we have got our bolts removed I am going to show you on the brackets themselves that they are actually marked per side and which location they go in. This one says PF so it is going to be Passenger Front. Then the center bracket is going to be the longer one. In the center of it, it is going to say PC for Passenger Center. Then on the rear bracket which is the medium size one is going to be marked with the letters PR for Passenger Rear. For the driver side it is going to have Driver Front, Driver Center, and Driver Rear marked on them. 01:01
Today, on this 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 series regular cab, we will be installing the Bully Nerf Bars part number NB-103. Just rearward of the front tire here, we have the forward body mounting bracket here. As you can see we have a bolt in there. We are going to be taking that bolt out, putting in new hardware. And that is going to provide our forward attaching point for our Nerf Bar. And you will notice that the bushing is coming out as well, with the bolt. And that is okay, but we are going to be putting this bushing back up into place when we get our brackets set up. If we go a little bit further back, just about even with the edge of the door, we have a second body mounting bracket, again with the same bolt. Again, we are going to remove this one as well and get the new bracket and hardware in place as well. 0:52
Today on this 2009 Chevy Silverado 3500HD extended cab, we will be installing Westin running board part number 26-1680. The first thing we want to do in preparation is to lay out all of our hardware and make sure all of the components are there. Go ahead and locate three body mounting bolts that are located underneath the cab of the vehicle. You can see we have got one here to the front, one in the middle, and one towards the rear. We need to go ahead and remove the body mounting bolts out of these body mounts. And you will notice that maybe the rubber spacer might be coming out here with the bolt and that is okay. We will reinstall that once we put the brackets up. :40
