Westin R7 nerf bars installed on truck

Westin's R7 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 7" width provides greater stability than narrower round bars.


Concealed mounting bracket used to install Westin R7 tube steps

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


Step pad with grooves on Westin R7 nerf bar

Extra-wide 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.


Endcap on Westin R7 tube step

No need to worry about rust on these nerf bars. Not only are they constructed of rust-resistant powder coated 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.

Review from a similar Westin R7 Nerf Bar in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


They are already showing signs of rust and stainless should not rust.


Comments
With this photo it is hard to see the rust that is mentioned. I recommend rinsing down the bars with freshwater periodically. While stainless steel is tough, it can corrode when exposed to damaging chemicals, saline, grease, moisture, or heat for prolonged periods of time.

Review from a similar Westin R7 Nerf Bar in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Good quality running boards. Straight forward install. No problems after 1 year of use. Work well for paint protection as well as a step for entry. In the pictures the truck is dirty and the running boards still look great. I would definitely buy them again.


Comments
Still very happy with my purchase after one year of use. The stainless steel still looks new.I accidentally hit them on a dock while unloading my boat and bent the brackets. I was able to bend them back in place without any further damage. They are tough. Thanks For the great product.

Review from a similar Westin R7 Nerf Bar in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


product is good and everything fits wells. Instructions are poor on how to install cert nuts if your don't have them included. I had to review a separate [online] video to figure out how to install the cert nuts. Everything else went smoothly.


Comments
So after one year, I discovered that the 10mm bolts and washers that hold the boards to the mounts are not stainless, so they were rusting away. I pulled one, went to the hardware store, found identical bolts and washers in stainless, and replaced all 12 mounting bolts and washers. Cost about $15 to get it all in stainless. Otherwise a good product that still looks like new.

Review from a similar Westin R7 Nerf Bar in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Ordered two sets for two trucks. Both sets arrived damaged by UPS. Driver threw the packages to the rear and same board in both packages dinged. Not a huge deal to me as it was not visible when on the truck. Not an etrailer problem. Boards are great and perfect size for easy ingress and egress with work boots on.

  • Power Running Boards for a 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel
    I do have a set of motorized running boards for your 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel (New Body Style) but the Bestop PowerBoard Motorized Running Boards are currently not available for this generation. Instead, you will want to look at the Aries ActionTrac Motorized Running Boards. The main difference between the PowerBoard and ActionTrac is the placement of the motor. The ActionTrac has the motor secured up inside the step so it is shielded from the elements whereas the PowerBoard has the motor...

  • Black Westin Nerf Bars that Fit 2019 Ram 1500 Quad Cab
    We do have great Westin step bars that fit your 2019 Ram 1500 quad cab but we do not have any drop style bars that fit. For a black set we have the R7 Nerf Bars part # 28-71225 which are 7 inches wide and will fit well and look great.

  • Are the Bars from the Westin R7 # 28-71225 and # 28-71275 the Same?
    I have an answer for you. I did some research on both the Westin R7 Nerf Bars for the 2021 Ram 1500 (part # 28-71225) and for the 2021 Chevy SIlverado 2500 (part # 28-71275). Unfortunately, as is the case with most nerf bars, the mounting hardware is year/make/model specific, and the mounting hardware that comes with both of these trucks are very different. With that being said, the nerf bars are not the same because the mounting locations for both vehicles are in a different location....
