Westin R5 step bars installed on a truck

Westin's R5 nerf bars make the trip from your vehicle's door to the ground a smooth transition. The bars' straight-style design and squared edges offer a rugged look, and the 5" width provides greater stability than narrower round bars.


Concealed mounting bracket cover on a Westin R5 step bar

Injection-molded covers conceal the mounting brackets used to install the step bars for a seamless, from-the-factory appearance.


5-Inch step pads on Westin R5 step bar

Oversize step pads allow you and your passengers to safely step out of your vehicle. The grooves in the UV-resistant, injection-molded polymer pads provide traction and direct water away from the surface of the bars to help prevent slipping.


No need to worry about rust on these nerf bars. Not only are they constructed of durable, rustproof stainless steel, but the black molded plastic endcaps also keep out moisture to help prevent internal corrosion.


Installing the bars is easy. A mounting kit is included, featuring custom brackets that bolt onto existing holes in your vehicle's rocker panels - no drilling necessary.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Not only did the Nerf Bars arrive in excellent condition, they were a beautiful addition to our customers 2018 Chevrolet. Our customer was very satisfied with how wonderfully they complimented his new truck as well as the ease of getting in and out of his truck.
Instillation was simple and hassle-free.
I highly recommend this WESTIN Automotive product to anyone on the fence about which Running Boards to purchase.

First off, instructions are horrible. They constantly contradict themselves. What was supposed to be a simple install turned into an 5 hour ordeal. Do not attempt torque anything, you will wind up bending the brackets and breaking them, just hand tighten them. I feel as if there should have been another support instead of 3 for a crew cab truck. Overall product is good. It did come with a ding in it but by the time I realized it I had already put the brackets on so there was no returning it.


Comments
A year later, it’s been fantastic! These running boards hold up well and no signs of rust or damage.

Review from a similar Westin R5 Nerf Bar in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


These look amazing. They look close to stock and really enhance the overall appearance of my truck. Very sturdy with a nice wide foot tread. You also have the ability to slide these a couple inches forward and back to get them lined up with the cab exactly where you want them. Installation was easy. Took a little longer than it should have because it was only 6°F while I was installing them, so frequent breaks to thaw my fingers were necessary!

Review from a similar Westin R5 Nerf Bar in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Overall happy with these. Very easy to install, sturdy, and happy I chose aluminum. Only knock I have is after one year the paint on the steel mounting brackets is not holding up. Will need to repaint these.

Review from a similar Westin R5 Nerf Bar in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


They are good. No rust, dents etc. They fit a size 12 shoe will. No problem getting in. The bottom of mine are open. They are not a hollow tube. At this point one year later, I would buy again, but there is no need.


Comments
They are holding up well and look great. They are open on the bottom but that actually makes it easier to wash road debris from the underside. No rust and would buy again if I needed for another truck

Review from a similar Westin R5 Nerf Bar in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


I like the running boards, I wish they were about 2 inches lower, I had a problem with not having enough Flat washers and had to get a locking nut as well because I could not get one of the nuts to thread onto the stud bolt, I ended up going to Lowes and buying these items. The online video help me out a lot so thanks for putting that out to view. I found a very small dent on the drivers side running board after I placed them on the truck. I would of gave 5 stars if it was not for the issues, I mentioned.

  • Running Board Recommendation for 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500 Crew Cab
    In 2014 the Chevy 1500s changed enough that the tube step fits all changed as well. You'd need a set designed for your 2500 2011 model. I'd need to know what cab length you have.

  • Weight Capacity of Westin R5 Nerf Bars on 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500
    I spoke with my contact at Westin regarding the Westin R5 Nerf Bars # 28-51030 (which are confirmed to fit your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500) and he said that they do not actually list weight ratings for any of their nerf bars. This is because the limiting factor will be the mounting locations on the truck itself. He just recommends checking with a local Chevy dealer to see what the weight capacity is on the Silverado's rocker panels, which is where the nerf bar brackets will mount. This essentially...

  • Torque Values for Westin R5 Running Boards for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
    Per the installation instructions I've linked for you, the M8 bolts that attach the brackets to the truck are torqued to 15-19 foot lbs and the M6 bolts that attach the step to the bracket are torqued to 5-7 foot lbs. Be aware that the nature of the hardware can change over time, so it's best to refer to step # 9 of the instructions for the kit you received to ensure the torque values are current for the provided hardware.
