these Nerf bars are super easy to install and look wicked cool. We really jumped on to make sure they had no movement and they did not! Westin typically makes a solid product. 414691

Bob and the team at e-trailer were 5 star. The ease of the transaction, shipping pricing to Hawaii and the Lightning fast delivery. Nerf bars are installed and look amazing. 542683


Comments

The bars and the finish still look “like new” and always get compliments. The only hang up is that the bars prevent shops from using their side lifts to rotate tires when you’re doing an oil change. No worries tho, I’ll rotate the tires on my own.

Review from a similar Westin HDX in Grille Guards


I like to think my Westin Grille Guard is the best compared to some of the others I have seen on the road. I have the polished stainless and I do not see one bit of rust or discoloration. I do wish though that the bolts that hold the grille onto the truck were polished stainless or came with caps to cover the zinc oxide bolts that are used for the installation. 319114


Comments

It has been over a year now and my Westin Grille Guard still looks like the day it came out of the box. The truck stays outside 24/7/365 in upper NY state. I bought it to protect my front end against deer hits, but the deer seem to stand at the side of the road admiring how good my guard looks. Now I am thinking about ordering the Westin 6 HID light kit to improve night time driving. I certainly would recommend Westin to anyone looking for aftermarket products.

Review from a similar Westin HDX in Grille Guards


This the review I posted on TacomaWorld about the grill: “I had purchased a HD Steelcraft grille guard, via Carid, for my 2017 Tacoma, but it was not received in acceptable condition (from manufacturing and shipping). After being refunded I purchased a HDX Westin, grille guard, via etrailer. First, I have to say the Westin was much more difficult in install; luckily I had a buddy with more experience on such projects, more patients and the right tools. The instructions covered several years of Tacomas and were poorly written and illustrated. With that said the packaging from Westin was far superior than that of Steelcraft’s. Westin had every part covered by cardboard cut to fit. Under the cardboard the grille guard had been wrapped in foam. The likelihood of the grille being damaged was very unlikely. On the other hand the Steelcraft only had foam and bubble wrap around it with a thin leather like covering around it all on the outside. Before even unpacking the Steelcraft it could be seen were the corners of the up rights had cut through the wrapping. As mentioned the quality of the grille was poor. There were places where it had not been powder coated, the powder coating on the punch out was sloppy and one of the up rights appeared to have been damaged before it had even been wrapped. The Westin was made of thicker and wider steel. Both grilles were one piece units. The Steelcraft bolted to the frame using vertical bolts, which seemed to me could be sheared off on impact, while the Westin grille bolted on horizontally. Steelcraft looked good the way the upper part of the guard turned inward to follow the upper part of the grille, and the Westin upper part turn outward following the angle of the lower part of the grille. The Westin offered more protection. If you were to hit something the wider spread of the Westin uprights seem like they would protect more. The uprights on the Steelcraft were just powder coated medal, but the uprights on the Westin had a nice rubber strip over them, well suited for pushing another vehicle. The Westin cost more, but worth it. Just make sure you’re very patient and having a pass though socket is a great help since there is very limited room to work under the bumper on the upper bolts. And Steelcraft’s warranty is two years while Westin’s is three years.” 600352

It has a few chips in the chrome when I received the grille guard. Not sure if it was for the warehouse or shipping. Also there is a little rust starting at one of the welds. Still very happy with the grill guard. 366803

Review from a similar Westin HDX in Grille Guards


We chose this particular guard because we like the design over other brands for the Tahoe application. This is a 2020 Tahoe Premier RST. Grill guards are popular here in rural Texas even on cars and SUVS because they are known to at least sometimes help minimize vehicle damage during highway impacts. Turkey buzzards, hawks, feral pigs and deer are a constant presence on our rural public roads. We like the way it fits and the tubing is even heavier than the Ranch Hand on our farm trucks. We are very happy with this product. 704085

Great Grill Guard. It was very easy to mount and we added a heavy duty winch. It really changed the look of the truck. Holding up really well with no rock chips or fading still looks brand new! 484964

The bars are exactly what I wanted and mount well. My one gripe is that the powder coat was covering the threads at the mount point of the bars. After spending an hour trying to follow the instructions I had to disassemble the system to clean out the threads. After that it went in as written. 474765

Do you have a question about this Grille Guard?


  • Can Westin HDX Grille Guard From 2012 Ram 1500 be Installed on 2017 Ram 2500
  • We do have the replacement mounting hardware available for your Westin HDX Grille Guard # 57-3545 with part # 57-354PK, however it will not work to install your existing grille guard on your new 2017 Ram 2500. This is because both the grille guard and its mounting hardware are vehicle specific, and it looks like there is enough of a difference between the 2012 Ram 1500 and the 2017 Ram 2500 that a completely different HDX Grille Guard is needed.

  • Westin Grille Guard Fit on 2011 Ram 1500
  • Thank you for the photo of the grille guard you have; this helps us a lot in determining whose product it is and if it will fit your truck. Grille guards and their mounting kits are both vehicle-specific, so both items need to be intended for your specific installation vehicle in order to fit. In other words, the "wrong" part cannot be made to fit by using the "right" install kit. I reviewed all of the grille guard kits we have for your 2011 Ram 1500 and you can see these too on the...

  • The Westin HDX Grille Guard with Punch Plate # 57-3545 that is a fit for the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 is also confirmed to fit the 2013 Dodge Ram 1500. If you need a Replacement Hardware Kit, part # 57-354PK is the correct kit for the # 57-3545 HDX guard. The # 57-1955 HDX that you referenced is not a fit for either the 2009 or 2013 Dodge Ram 1500.

  • Recommended Grille Guard For 2012 Ram 1500 Sport
  • I called my contact at Westin about your 2012 Ram 1500 Sport. They told me the problem with the Sport model is that the bumper is entirely enclosed and has no entry needed for the HDX grille guard to install. We do have an option for you. I recommend the Westin Sportsman Grille Guard, part # 40-3545. This will work on your truck if it does not have Adaptive Cruise Control or collision warning systems with grille mounted laser control sensors.

Another option that you may be interested in is the Westin Sportsman Grille Guard, # 40-93545.

  • Which HDX Grille Guard Fits 2015 Ram 1500
  • The 2500 and the 1500 models are different enough that the fits for the HDX guards do not transfer from one to other. Since the guards are made to fit the hardware kits you can't just swap hardware kits to fit a guard from one vehicle to other. So you'd have to go with the part # 57-3545 for an HDX that does fit your 2015 Ram 1500.

  • The Westin HDX Grille Guards for the 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 and the 2012 Ram 1500 are not the same guard and will not be interchangeable. On the 2012 Ram, Westin manufacturers # 57-3545 the HDX Grille Guard in Black Powder Coat and # 57-3540 the HDX Grille Guard in Polished Stainless Steel. The difference is in between the 1500 series and the 2500 series trucks. The front ends are different and the 2500 grille guard will not fit the 1500 series truck.

  • Unfortunately, none of the grille guards we carry for the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 will fit on a 2011 Ram 1500. We do have grille guards to fit your new truck. I suggest the Westin HDX # 57-3545. It's a full coverage guard that bolts right onto your truck using included hardware.

  • The Westin HDX Grille Guard with Punch Plate part # 57-3545 is a confirmed fit for a 2013 Ram 1500. However, they are only tested on models with the factory suspension so I would not be able to confirm fitment on a vehicle with a leveling kit.

  • Which Westin HDX Grille Guard Fits 2012 Ram 1500
  • The Westin HDX Grille Guards and the mounting kits are both made for specific vehicle applications so you cannot take a guard from one truck and move it to a new truck just by swapping hardware. So to install a Westin HDX grille guard on your 2012 Ram 1500 you'd need an all new kit with part # 57-3545 and you'd be set.

  • Grille Guard Recommendation for 2017 Ram 1500
  • So the grille guards and the mounting hardware are both made to specifically fit the trucks. What that means is that you can't take hardware from a newer truck's fit and adapt an older models grille guard to it. Only option we have would be a grille guard like the Westin HDX that is confirmed as a fit for the 2017 Ram 1500 part # 57-3545.

You would want the Westin HDX Winch Mount Grille Guard # 57-93545. This comes with a winch mounting plate that would work well with your Warn 10,000S winch. If you wanted the stainless steel version you would want the part # 57-93540.
