Westin Nerf Bars - Running Boards - 21-3565

  • Nerf Bars
  • Fixed Step
  • 4 Inch Width
  • Westin
  • Black
  • Steel
  • Oval
  • Gloss Finish
  • Cab Length

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: 2 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.

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.

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

They look great and the install is pretty straight forward once you figure out what they are talking about. One small dislike is they bow a little when I step up on them (240 lbs) however they bow right back and will hold up it seems. This was only a small issue, negated by the price really. They don’t have a center bracket which may have helped. I’m satisfied though, and would recommend, especially at this price.

Nice bars for reasonable price. Would have been 5x stars except hardware kit was missing 1x fender washer, a critical part needed to complete the installation. I had to borrow a friends car to run up to hardware store - kind of a pain, but nice bars, nevertheless.

The bars fit and look great. Easy install with no issues. All hardware was included. Directions were easy to follow. Spent more time looking for my sockets than the installation.

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.

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.

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


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!

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


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.!

Installed on my new 2021 GMC Sierra. Took about an hour, but I'm kinda meticulous. Retorqued after a week and have done nothing since. They are perfect. They compliment the vehicle and make entry and egress much easier. Coating has held up well. Highly recommend them.

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


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


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.

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.

    The Bestop PowerBoard NX Motorized Running Boards # B7563815 which fit the 2016 Ram 1500 Crew cab without factory Air Suspension system, do have exposed linkage parts as well as motors and wiring. In a severe Northeast winter these could develop a build up of ice that might potentially interfere with their operation. Since this kit does not fit with the factory air suspension anyway you can instead use a fixed step. My recommendations are the Westin 4-inch black nerf bars # 21-3565 or...
