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 black powder coated aluminum, 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.

Video Transcript for Westin R5 Nerf Bars Review

How's it going, Ryan here at Today, we're going to be taking a look at the line of Westin, R5 Nerf bars. Today on our truck we have the polished stainless steel, however, there are other finishes available. So it's really just going to depend on your taste. Nerf bars we're originally designed to help protect the rockers on the underside of your truck, but things have come a long way since then, and now we're going to primarily use them to help us get in and out of the truck. Since today's trucks do sit so high and as an added bonus, we get that visual enhancement as well.

It really does make it that much easier to climb in and out.And since it does come to our back door as well, one of the things that I personally like to use it for, we open our door up, kind of gives us a height advantage here in a way, if we have anything in the bed of our truck, we can grab it really easily. Just one of the things many people don't really think about when it comes to these Nerf bars, it gives you a really good spot to clean off your muddy or snowy boots before you hop up in your truck. Just come up and kick the dirt or mud off and hop right in. Compared to some of the other ones available. One of the things I noticed that is different about these, this is going to have this cover that goes over the brackets.

And that's just one of the things, in my opinion, the small details that they didn't forget about to make our whole package look more complete.On the end of our Nerf bars, we're going to have a cap, and not only does that, give us a little bit cleaner look, but these are also going to help prevent any water debris from your tires, getting slung up inside, making sure that these are going to stay in good shape for a long time. The subheads himself, are going to have a little bit of grip and that's going to help eliminate any potential slips when you're climbing in and out of the truck. Now, the Nerf bars are going to be five inches wide. So it's going to be plenty room to get your foot up on here. Unlike some of the other style of running boards, which are very narrow and you hop up on it and your foot seems to almost roll off of it.One advantage these have over a motorized style running board is that these are going to be reliable and once you have them in place.

You know they're going to work every time since there's no moving components. Finally, one of the really nice things about these, is that they're going to be very straightforward to get installed. That'll finish up our look at the line of Westin, R5 Nerf bars..

Westin R5 Nerf Bars - 5" Wide - Black Powder Coated Aluminum - 28-51095

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (39 Customer Reviews)

Made of rustproof black powder coated aluminum, these straight-style, custom-fit step bars have rugged square edges, and their mounting brackets are hidden for a seamless look. 5" Wide step pads cover the bars to provide good traction.


These came very quickly. They were easy to install. They look good and appear well built. I see no areas of concern and expect years of use without troubles.


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.

Been on my truck for two years now. Aluminum bars are holding up very well. I did repaint the steel mounting brackets after a year so they should be good to go for a while. Overall happy with the product
Gregg - 05/04/2023


Super easy to install. The aluminum was a little thinner than what I was expecting and they hang a little lower that what I was hoping. They look great on the truck, super easy to install and seem to be pretty sturdy. So far worth 5he money.


Looks great, solid construction, and easy install.


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.


Chose them because it looked like they were a little lower step than others and that is the case. Love the lower step height and it does not affect vehicle clearance (Ram 1500). Very nice looking solidly built nerf bars.


Westin R5 Nerf Bars on 2017 Ford F-250 supercrew. Cab. First a special thanks to Karen F. In customer service, she was very helpful making sure I got what I was looking for she made sure they was the correct size for my pickup. It took me an hour and half to install them they look and perform great, I will use and recommend they have the best prices and quality products. Thank You all.


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!


The running boards are just what I wanted. The issues that I had are that The installation instructions did not say that they would fit 2023 GMC, but they did. I was also missing one nut for the install that I had to purchase else ware. They are good boards, the company just needs to improve quality control.


Great company, shipped within 48 hrs with great communication letting me know where the order was right Up to delivery. Package arrived in great shape
And the Westin running boards installed easily in under 1-1/2 hrs. Perfect fit
Looks great. Only wish Westin supplied four brackets to give it a More symmetrical Look.


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.

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
Brian - 09/10/2021


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.

A year later, it’s been fantastic! These running boards hold up well and no signs of rust or damage.
Justin - 03/04/2020


Great product, made truck look better, very functional. Highly recommend to any Colorado owner.


Great, looks good on my truck


Awesome product!



Great service from all at etrailer. Very nice product. Looks great. First running board took awhile to figure out the installation but second one went on easily and quickly.

Still in great shape and looking good. Very functional.
Robert B - 04/08/2021


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.


The fit is great and install was fairly simple. We had seen Westin running boards on a truck while out shopping and we thought they looked great. We did a quick search online and placed our order. We’re very happy with our choice!


The bars were shipped super fast and look great. Put them on a 2022 Silverado LT.


Great quality and service. Strong brackets and mounting!


One of the best online shopping experiences I've ever had! Natalie was very helpful getting it ordered, step boards were delivered in 2 days and were exactly what I wanted. Can't wait to shop etrailer again


Product came fast. Stoutly packed. Impressive look and easy to install. All parts came and everything fit exactly. Great company and great product. Exceeded my expectations. Small price for a big look on my 2015 Canyon Crew cab.


Everything you would hope they would be. One year later, look great, solid fit and sturdy.


These running are great they not only look good they work good and are sturdy

  • Flush Mount Nerf Bars For A 2017 Ford F-150
    I do have a nerf bar option that's mounts much closer to the factory rocker panels on your 2017 Ford F-150 than the Westin R5 Nerf Bars part # 28-51095 in the DeeZee Oval Tube Steps w Custom Installation Kit part # DZ16421-16327 which is placed about 1-2" down from the door jamb. However, the westin nerf bars are designed to sit about 2-3 inches below the factory side steps. Unfortunately, neither we nor Westin offers brackets that change the height of the nerf bars.

  • Are There Truck Bed Camper Tie Downs for a 2018 Ford F-350 Short Bed with Power Retractable Steps
    I know this is not what you want to hear as they are very nice and convenient but the power retractable running boards/nerf bars on your 2018 Ford F-350 are going to have to go if you want to use a set of frame mounted camper tie-downs which is what I recommend. The two just simply aren't compatible due to where they mount and the steps will have to be removed. Then, you can use the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs, part # TLF2022 for the front and part # TLF3008 for the rear....
