The curved ends on these black powder coated step bars give your vehicle a streamlined look. Footpad areas are recessed, rather than cut out, preserving the strength of the steel and providing a solid, rustproof step into your truck.


Features:

  • Cab-length, oval nerf bars make it easy to get into and out of your vehicle
    • Greater stability than narrower round bars
  • Curved ends of step bars give a finished, street-style look
  • Non-slip step pads sit in recessed tube areas instead of cutouts
    • No holes in tubing means maximum strength and durability with no internal corrosion
    • Sturdy polymer plastic construction resists UV rays, fading, and cracking
  • Mild steel with black powder coat finish is long-lasting and rust resistant
  • Mandrel bending at corners eliminates creases in tubing
  • Custom fit for your vehicle
  • Quick and easy bolt-on installation with included hardware
    • No drilling required


Specs:

  • Tubing width: 4"
  • Step pad width: 4"
  • Step pad quantity: 1 per bar
  • Quantity: 2 nerf bars
  • 3-Year warranty


The step pad areas in Westin's Platinum Series oval nerf bars are indented instead of cut out, maintaining the structural integrity of the steel tubing and preventing internal corrosion. 90-Degree mandrel bending at the corners means that there are no creases in the bars. This minimizes the chances of chips and rust at the bends and makes for sleeker, better-looking step bars.


U-Style Tube Steps

As shown in the image above, these step bars have a U-style tubing, which ensures that each bar conforms perfectly to your vehicle. Installation is quick and simple - just bolt the mounting brackets to existing holes in your truck's frame. No drilling is required.

Video Transcript for Westin Platinum Series Oval Nerf Bars Review

Hi there truck owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Westin's line of Platinum Oval Nerf Bars. These are available either in black, like you see here or in stainless steel. They're custom designed to fit your truck, so you'll want to use our fit guide to determine the appropriate part number for your vehicle. Now there's a lot of reasons you might want Nerf bars, whether it's just the appearance you get with it, as it does kind of make your truck look a little bit bigger and more rugged, but also for its benefits of getting in and out of the vehicle. It makes it easier because you've got a step, so you don't have to work as hard getting in and you've also got a surface that is non-skid.

This is particularly useful for people with mobility issues, younger children, or if your truck has just lifted way up in the air and you can use a step to get in.These are four inch diameter, Nerf bars and I like the oversize pads on them. A lot of Nerf bars and running boards out there, they just seem too small for my large feet but with this I don't have any issues getting my foothold on top so I can easily get in. And in inclement weather, the Westin logo and textured surface will provide traction. Now, regardless of which model truck you have, you'll have one pad for each door. And in some cases you may even have an additional pad where the step will extend back to help you get into the bed of the truck.

These steps not only look rugged and durable, but they are rugged and durable. They're constructed of a steel. The inside of the tube is hollow, but it's a nice thick steel that does have no give, I mean, and with the round shape, it's not going to collapse.It's that such a strong shape And I weigh about 200 pounds and you can see when I get on the Nerf bar here, there's no flexibility. The truck moves. I can bounce up and down and I feel nothing.

There's no movement. It's as if it was just part of the truck. Another feature it has over other Nerf bars, is it's mandrel bended, 90 degree turns at each end of our Nerf bar. This bend is not only stronger, but it also gives your truck a sleeker look as it curves in to fit the body. And without there being any creases in it due to that mandrel bending process, it's going to be more resistant against corrosion as there's no places for water to collect in those creases.

So with how solid our Nerf bar is here, it will easily last the lifetime of your truck.Now, the step pads here are going to last a long time, but these may need to be replaced at some point, over time. They are resistant against UV rays, but like all plastics, when they're outside in the elements, heating up and getting cold, they do get brittle and at some point it will eventually crack and you may need to replace them. We do have replacements available here at etrailer.com and it's a cinch because they simply just snap in and speaking of the pads and how they attached, one of the processes they used when constructing the Nerf bar here. Many of your Nerf bars are going to cut out an area for the pad to sit on but with these Western bars, it's actually bent down into a concave area for our pad to go down into. With it being bent down instead of cut out, we've got the full integrity of our bar as it's still solid all the way around.You'll receive two Nerf bars with your kit, one for your passenger side and one for the driver's side, all of the hardware that you'll need to get installed comes included. And all of our brackets are going to Mount underneath giving us a location to get our Nerf bar installed here on the side. Now, if you are interested in that extra step to get into the back of your truck, you'll want to make sure that you get the wheel to wheel Nerf bars from the Platinum Series. And they're also great if you have any roof mounted accessories, as things on your roof, while a pretty tall guy could still load stuff up here, it's a lot harder to lift things up over your head, so now we've got a step here that we can use to keep those items down below our head and get everything loaded up.And if you've got a cargo box on there, you can easily route around inside of it and be able to see the things that you're trying to find. Another popular Nerf bar from Westin is the Pro Traxx. I've gone ahead and installed the Pro Traxx here just on our passenger side with our Platinum Ovals on the driver's side, so you can get an idea of what they're going to look like. Now you can see here, it has plastic covers over the brackets, both in the middle and the front and the rear, and they are plastic and it's nice that it's got something there. It makes it look like a larger bracket than it actually is as it's really just a piece of metal like this turned sideways, so it makes it look much more substantial. I'm not a big fan though, of the plastic hardware. I like the Platinum Series better on the other side, as it's just got the solid metal brackets for the center here.What I also like on the Platinum Oval on the other side, the way that it has a full 90 degree bend that turns into the vehicle. So it looks like it just goes right in and it has a better look in my opinion, then this here with a gap and it also feels sturdier as it attaches to the center of the Nerf bar on the other side, where our brackets are underneath. There's more bracing. With the Pro Traxx here it seems fine. I can step up and down on it, but if I bounce up and down on this side, versus the other side, the other side has no movement. It feels very solid. This side here, it doesn't feel in any means that something's going to happen with it. It just doesn't feel quite as sturdy. So when deciding on which Nerf bars is going to be best for you. The two things that I really look for are its durability and the way that it looks. And the Platinum Oval to me, hits both of those marks better than the Pro Traxx. And that completes our look at Westin's Line of Platinum Oval Nerf Bars.

Review from a similar Westin Platinum Series Nerf Bars in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Installed on 2018 Tacoma sport. Unfortunately, it arrived with a ding in the passenger side bar. It was very disappointing, but by the time I saw it (I should have thoroughly checked both bars before starting install), I had already installed the driver’s side. I said, to heck with it and didn’t bother with a return. It was an extremely easy install with quick delivery and overall, they look great. Now, I don’t have to haul myself up into my Tacoma. The step inserts are basically a heavy duty plastic. I figure if they are slippery, I can spray them with a propert texturing coating. At some point, I’ll probably also texture/ mat spray the bars themselves since they’re gloss finish.


Comments
Bars are still great. The little ding I simply don’t notice anymore. I’d give it 4 stars, simply because if the ding.

Review from a similar Westin Platinum Series Nerf Bars in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


The step/bars look good. Install wasn't tough but Westin's instructions are poor- I just figured it out on my own. While the packaging looked stout, 3 of the 4 open bar ends were bent in, like someone dropped the box on both ends. I did a decent job of banging the dents out and installed them. Those ends aren't seen once installed. Someone needs to look at a better way to protect them during shipping. Overall I'm just satisfied with the product.


Comments
The steps are great. My wife is 5 foot 2 inches and it makes getting into our 3/4 ton MUCH easier.They seem to be holding up well even though New Hampshire bombs the roads with salt every winter.Other than the minor shipping damage- a great product- very sturdy.

Installed the Westin 21-3610 4 in oval SS step bars on my 2015 Jeep GC Summit.Hemi California edition - perfect fit. See photos. After 2014 Jeep uses 12 mil plastic stickers instead of the rubber plug caps for the oval cutouts as called out in the Westin install procedure - use a small wood chisel to remove the cover stickers carefully.

As others have noted, the instructions are not terribly robust, but once I got oriented, I was able to move along quite quickly. Either the rear brackets were mis-labeled, or the 2017 frame is slightly different. Swapping the parts side to side made the holes line up the way they should. Install took less than 90 minutes. I'm very pleased with the fit, finish, and the always fast service from e-Trailer. The package arrived early in the day because the UPS driver didn't want to work around it in his truck all day. That meant I could install them right away. Nice!

This is my third purchase of this type of nerf bar step system and they have proven to be rugged and very functional in Wyoming’s back country and temperature extremes. I ran into a bit of difficulty with this set as one of the nerf bar center supports was incorrectly located. etrailer’s Ashley helped resolve and shipped a replacements. Fantastic customer service as always.!

Product is as described. Installation was not complicated and easily done by one person. Fit perfectly on my 2018 Ram 3500. Install tip: duct tape is your friend when you fumble one of the nut holders into the frame. That will slow you down. :-)


Comments
Still going strong after a year. A few scratches from rocks but Id rather that than scrape up the truck. Does exactly what I needed them to do.

Good product but did not fit my 2019 F150 with 6'7" bed as claimed by Westin. I was able to get them on, but, they did not go over the stake pockets as they are supposed to. I notified etrailer of the issue and they quickly accepted a fully refunded return … even though I had installed them. Hopefully the product listing on the website was corrected so that no one else will get them in error. KUDOs to the etrailer folks for working with me on this!!

Review from a similar Westin Platinum Series Nerf Bars in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


These replaced a set of bars where the pads had deteriorated and cost of replacement was about the cost of new nerf bars. The nerf bars came very very quickly, three days after order. All parts were there, bars looked good, however there was an imperfection in the oval pipe near one of the step pads a small indention. No issues with the box it came in, so my assumption it was during manufacture or warehousing. Not enough of a problem to send back, but it was there non the less. Other than that installed easy, once all tools were gathered, 1st side took 30 minutes 2nd side took less than 15 minutes. My concern is the powder coat may not be durable, and might scratch easy, time will tell. I will probably only have my 2006 Sierra for a couple of more years.


Comments
Thanks for your review. Next time if you only need to replace the step pad, we sell replacement pads. I will attach the link. Just make sure you count how many pegs your pad has so you can determine the right replacement. As for the black powder coat, you can touch up scratches with some outdoor spray paint.

Trailer is one of the best sources for my truck. They are awesome about returns and helped me to pick the right product when I was not sure. The nerf bars worked our great as a replacement to my older ones. They worked out great with the Tundra 2008 and Since I already he'd the brackets from Westin installed long time ago, these fitted just right without much effort.


Comments
Still working great. Thank you for inquiry.

2014 Ram 2500 Crew Cab Shipping box could have been built stronger, UPS had to add extra tape Steps mounting nuts are a little to long 1/4" so bolts don't didn't align correctly but once started everything pulls together, can't leave front mount loose to align because you can't get to one bolt to tighten it. Top of step sits 5" below door Wife now able to get into truck easily so this was a good purchase. etrailer kept me updated since this was delayed by the manufacturer which I appreciated

Wasn't too sure of the integrity of attachment to the rocker panel, but after nearly a year, they seem to be holding up well. Not pleased that the extra 2 or so feet of the wheel-to-wheel version nearly doubles the price, but am pleased.

Satisfied purchaser I had to return a product because my son sold his truck before the steps arrrived. I made arrangements with Cortney, who was extremely pleasant to deal with, to return the steps (running board) first ordered to exchange for ones that would fit the new truck my son purchased. Thanks etrailer and Cortney for you assistance and standing behind the product purchase procedures. I'll let you know what we think of the new steps after they are installed.
