Video Transcript for Aries Oval Nerf Bars Review

Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today, we're gonna be checking out the line of Aries oval nerf bars. These are available in polished stainless steel, like we have here today, as well as some that have a black powder coat finish. And since these are gonna be custom fit, make sure to use our fit guide to enter in the year make and model of your truck as well as the appropriate cab length or cab size to make sure you get what you need the first time. When it comes to tube steps like this or even running boards, I feel like a lot of people are looking for different things, whether it be aesthetics or functionality or a little bit of both. And I feel like these kinda fall right in the middle.

In terms of appearance, kinda your just classic tube step design, right It's really not noticeable. They don't look out of place by any means or anything along those lines. So, you can't really go wrong there. And as far as the functionality, I feel like these definitely check that box. It has a nice, wide footprint here for you to stand on.

It's gonna be four inches. And in our case, they actually come out a little bit and I feel like that's really important for functionality, and we have them on Sierra today, but I feel like this will hold true for just about all the trucks out there that these are available for. So, since they come out, they're not gonna look funny by any means. They're not gonna be way out here, but whenever you get to opening up the door, you're gonna have quite a bit of clearance to help you get in and out. And once you swing this open here, like I said, you're not just gonna be limited to the diameter of the tube step.

Since they come out, your foot can overhang there a little bit. It gives you a good stepping platform to get in the truck and almost even more so when you go to hop out. I'm sure we all have seen trucks that have the older type tube steps on them that look similar to this, but they just end up getting banged up and chewed up. A lot of them rust from the inside out and then eventually, you just have to replace them just 'cause they get soft and you can't stand the way they look anymore. So, one of the things that kinda separates these from those is these tubes are gonna be completely sealed.

So, the end caps are sealed, the bottom's all sealed. There's no openings in here for mud or dirt and snow slush and all that stuff to get hung up in here and rot away from the inside out. Really, the only openings you're gonna have are where your bolts go through there and then once you put the bolts in, they're all sealed up. So, in terms of longevity, I definitely see these lasting quite a bit longer than your old traditional style ones probably would. As I mentioned, these step is gonna be four inches wide and that's kind of a good middle ground there. The majority of running boards or, I'm sorry, nerf bars like this are in that three to five-inch range. So, kinda right in the middle as far as that goes. In terms of, if you're looking for something more along the lines of aesthetics and improving the appearance of your truck, I personally like running boards a little bit more, the majority of the time on most trucks. And I say it because usually, they'll sit up a little bit tight or a little flush or kinda look a little more factory, but that's just my taste and my opinion and everyone's a little different in those regards and what you're trying to shoot for in terms of how you want your truck to look. And then there's also some really cool options out there. There's motorized ones. Wherever you open up the door, they'll swing down and give you quite a bit of help as far as getting in and out of the truck. They look cool. And I've actually gone a few sets of the Aries ones, they make them, and they work really well. 'Cause sometimes, those can get kinda finicky, trying to time everything with the doors. But the Aries ones, I have had really good luck with and they seem to hold up really well. The kit is going to come with custom brackets and all the hardware that you're gonna need. That way, they'll bolt directly up to your truck. And generally speaking, a lot of times, these are pretty straightforward. Being that they're custom made for your particular application, getting them in place and everything's set up usually isn't too much of a headache. Other than all that though, not really a whole lot to them. Kind of a tried and true nerf bar and a classic approach to adding some steps like this to the side of your truck. And that will finish up our look at of the line of Aries oval tube steps.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado

I bought Aries 4" Oval nerf bars for my 2019 Silverado 1500 LD. Attachment hardware is not stainless so I hope rust is not an issue. Looks good, installation was pretty straightforward but the provided installation instruction were not exactly correct. There are no threaded attachment holes as indicated in the instructions, had to use clips in those spots. Fortunately there was enough provided hardware to complete the installation. So everything is good so far, let's see how it does after using for a while.

  • Solution For Replacement Step Pads For Unknown Brand Steps On 2013 Nissan Frontier
    I took a look through all of our replacement step pads and we have nothing with these measurements. The best option I have for you is replacing the steps all together, which for your 2013 Nissan Frontier I recommend the following based on your cab length: Crew Cab # AA209018 King Cab # AA209019 It may be possible to retrofit some pads but each brand's oval is a bit different and the lengths/dimensions of the holes are all so different that without knowing the brand/model of your steps...

  • Replacement Step Pads for Aires Automotove AAS224046-2 Oval Step Bars
    We do indeed offer replacement step pads. There are two possible replacement pads for the Aries Automotive # AAS224046-2 step pads. You an look on the bottom of the pad that came loose and you'll immediately be able to determine which one you need. Look at the number or ribs that span the width of the underside of the existing pad. If your pad has 10 ribs, use part # AA2090133 as the replacement pad. If there are 8 ribs, use # AA2090161. I've provided a side-by-side photo comparing the two.
