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 etrailer.com. 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..

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.

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


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

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!

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


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


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.

  • What are the Weight Capacity of the Westin # 28-534685, 28-534685, and Aries # AA2558011?
    Determining the weight capacity for a set of nerf bars sometimes can be somewhat of a tricky task. The weight capacity limit for a set of nerf bars is generally limited to the strength of the rocker panel they are attached to. This can make it difficult for manufacturers to rate their nerf bars for a specific capacity. For the Westin # 28-534685 and the # 28-51275, I confirmed that the maximum weight capacity for those bars are based on the maximum rating of the vehicle's frame. The...
