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
Okay, with the bolts out we want to go ahead and identify what size bolt we actually have here when we install our Nerf Bar. With a 2005 or older model, you will likely have a 12 millimeter bolt like the one that we have here. If that is the case, we are actually going to use the new 12 millimeter bolts that are provided with the installation kit. Now that we have the hardware identified, we can go ahead and start installing our brackets. I do want to note that the bracket here, we have a longer side and a shorter side. We want the shorter side to mount to the bottom of the body mount bracket there. On the front brackets only, we are going to be adding this ring spacer and then we will have the bushing go back right on top of that. Again, on this vehicle, we are going to be using the 12 millimeter bolts. And we have added a lock washer and a flat washer as well. And we are just going to hand tighten this for the time being. Since we do have elongated holes in both the top and the side of the bracket, there will be some final adjustment that can be made once we get the tube step on. And then we will move back to the rear body mount brackets, install our rear support bracket here. And again, the only difference with this one is that we will not be using the ring spacer. I do want to note that, while we are tightening up this bracket that we want to try of keep the bracket centered in between the two legs of the body mount, side to side. And we also want to make sure that the spacer ring up top stays centered on the bushing that we had just installed above it. 02:16
With the brackets in place, we can go ahead and install our Nerf Bar. You will see that the Nerf Bar has weld nuts built into the end of them. We will be using the 1/2 inch bolt, along with the lock washer and flat washer, to attach the bracket to the Nerf Bar. And again, we just want to leave these hand tightened until we make our final adjustments. And again, with the tub step in place now, we want to go ahead and make our adjustment. This is going to pretty much come down to personal preference. Again, you have some adjustablity both forward and backward, both in and out and side to side. When you go ahead and determine where you want the bracket placed and the tube step placed, you can go ahead and start tightening the bolts down. We are going to go ahead and tighten them down, first with just a wrench and then we will go back through and torque them down to their specified torque rating. And when torquing the bolts down, we want to start with the body mounting bolts first and then come back and torque the Nerf Bars last. With the bolts torqued down, we just need to go ahead and repeat that set up for the passenger side as well and our installation will be complete. This will conclude the installation of Bully Nerf Bars, part number NB-103, on a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 series regular cab.
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 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
