Video Transcript for Westin HDX Nerf Bars Review

Hey everybody. Brian here at Today we're going to be taking a look at the line of Weston HDX nerf bars. This is what the West and nerf bars are going to look like installed. Now keep in mind these do come in different lengths, so be sure to check our fit guide.Not only are these going to give us a few functional benefits, they're also going to enhance our appearance. They're going to give us a little more rugged look.

Now, originally nerf bars we're designed just to protect the underside of our truck. But things has changed and come a long way since then. Now they're primarily going to be used to help us get in and out of the truck, enhance our appearance while still helping protect our undercarriage. With our nerf bars on, like I said, it's going to be a lot easier to safely get in and out of our pickup.What I really like about these nerf bars is that they're going to give us some best of both worlds. The pad to step on is going to be wide and spacious as opposed to some of the other ones that I've seen on the market that look really good but there's not a whole lot of room to put your foot.

So as you can see here, even with big work boots on, I have more than enough room to get my foot on and off.What I really like about these is that the foot pad is actually going to extend out past our truck, so this will be especially useful when we're getting out. You don't have to search for it like some of the other ones. You can just put your foot right down on it. As I said, some of the other ones on the market actually sit further back underneath the truck and so it can be trying to difficult to find it. Not with these.

Simply step right out and we're good to go. These are really going to help put your mind at ease, especially if you've got kids hopping in and out of the back all the time.Now all the friends that you're going to pick up are going to have a nice easy time getting in and out of your truck, so if you're tired of stretching way up in your truck to get in and out, these are going to be a good option for you. Now these are a pretty straightforward and easy install, so if you're that type of do it yourselfer, you probably wouldn't need to take it to a shop to get it installed. If you're shooting more for the appearance aspect of the nerf bars, a nice touched to match them would be a grill guard. You can find those on of our customers have personally reached out to us and said that they really like the clean look of these and that they get compliments on him all the time.

Now one thing I personally like is how they added this extra step here towards the back of the truck. That's going to be nice because we can get on and off of it to help us gain access to the inside of our bed. And that'll do it for our look at the line of Weston HDX nerf bars.

E trailer is a awesome company to work with, they go up and above to help you out.. so glad we had the chance to work with them

2008 Chevrolet Silverado


Ordered these in spring of 2021. By fall they were already starting to rust on the treads. By the next spring (1 year after install) there was significant rust on the treads, espousing the drivers as it got the most action. I’m now at a little over two years and all the treads are rusted as well as significant rusting on the corners and edges. These do not hold up well at all.

Many other reviewers mentioned this early rusting as well. One response from etrailer mentioned contacting customer service as these would be under warranty. I contacted customer service today and was told rust is not covered.


Excellent product , easy installation with instructions provided. Separate the left and right side parts , start with driver side which is shown in the instruction photos, then the passenger side will be easy. The product is sturdy when assembled and provides a good height to step into and out of the vehicle.


Easy install. I actually installed on a 2012 4Runner, then decided to sell it, so I took them off and installed them on a 2018 4Runner. Fit was perfect, no issues. I might add, the 2012 model comes standard with the rocker skirts. I took them off to install these.


As recommended in another review, the night I received the bars I opened the packages, matched up all the parts (brackets, bolts, washers, etc.) and made several piles for the mounting project. The Westin instructions are not easy to follow, referencing back and forth to various pictures and figures. Fortunately I watched an install video on their website for a similar set of bars on a similar vehicle to get a better idea of what the instructions were trying to say - like what is a rivcert and how does it work.

The actual mounting of the brackets went fairly smoothly until I went to hang the first bar and discovered I had swapped the rear bracket between driver and passenger side. The instructions showed a difference between the front, mid and rear brackets, but not that there was also a distinct left/right to the rear ones. Once that was solved, installing the second bar went quickly.

Overall the product looks great on my Ram 1500 and seems pretty sturdy. My wife and kids like the nice wide steps to get up and into the truck.


The Westin nerf bars are already rusting. This is not what I expected at all. The bad part is that I talked my brother into buying all of his equipment from etrailer also.


Installed the steps today. So happy I got this step, ample room for your foot on a nonslip surface. Just the right amount of drop. They look great. Installed on 2021 Toyota Tundra Double Cab

I am glad I got the stainless steel steps, as the powder coat flaked in a couple places while installing bolts.

As others have said, the instructions are terrible. Attach the brackets to the step first, with the bolts just finger tight. Then hang the step on the truck with the bolts finger tight. Cycle through the bolts a few times tightening incrementally, then torque them.


Bob and the team at e-trailer were 5 star. The ease of the transaction, shipping pricing to Hawaii and the Lightning fast delivery. Nerf bars are installed and look amazing.


Easy to install and built well


Just installed these last night and snapped a mount bolt using a 3/8" drive ratchet. I was much more careful when tightening the remaining bolts but the hardware is definitely sub-par. Installation was easy, the bars look good and are solid however I imagine they will require paint every couple of years to control rust. For the price I believe there are better options out there.


I'm 6'4" tall, but still could not easily get in or out of this stock Ram 2500. These solved the problem completely. I chose them for the different look, and the complete wheel to wheel protection. I also weigh 250 pounds, and these feel very sturdy.
I can think of very few cons, but one would be the decreased ability to hand wash/wax the bottom of your body panels after these are installed, and the other would be the obvious reduction of ground clearance.
Overall, I'm very satisfied.


The nerf bars are a nice addition to the look of the 2018 4Runner. I needed them for my wife to enter and exit easier.
I wanted to put on sliders but they would not have provided the lower step access needed.


I have a Jeep Wrangler and the Weston HEX step bar works great. I was hard for my wife to get in my old truck, but this step bar makes it easy for her in our new Jeep. It also has a non slip strip made out of steel not a glued on one, perfect!


Easy to install only needed help to I hold up one end to get a bolt started then I was on my own again.


Great customer service


Nice product. Install took longer that necessary due to a misaligned screw hole that had to be filed . Excellent communication. Answered my emails almost as soon as I sent them. They look amazing.


Bought these for my 2018 Tacoma - needed a little step up and help with protection of the rocker panel - as well as dealing with the frustration of mud & dust always coating inside door. These solved all 3 nicely. They are sturdy, well built, and very easy to install.
At least on my truck - only had to find pre-drilled holes and insert brackets. Found it easier to install bars attached to brackets then try to get bar on brackets after they were installed on truck.
Great price - cheaper than anywhere else - and free shipping!!


The instructions are not all that great. Pictures help. But it would be best to have the picture showing the driver's side have a note that says the view is from under the truck. Also, the steps themselves were miss marked for which side went where. A clearer mark on the package would help. It looked like 77D or 77P.
Installation was good once I figured out which way I needed to look at the brackets to install them.


nice product and easy to install fast s hipping


Easy install but drilling was required for the extended section although it did say no drilling required


Finish lasted about 2 months before having to get the Rino lined. Started rusting pretty bad. For that kind of money the finish should of lasted at least a couple years.


The bars are exactly what I wanted and mount well.

My one gripe is that the powder coat was covering the threads at the mount point of the bars. After spending an hour trying to follow the instructions I had to disassemble the system to clean out the threads. After that it went in as written.


these Nerf bars are super easy to install and look wicked cool. We really jumped on to make sure they had no movement and they did not!

Westin typically makes a solid product.


They look great on my 2021 Ford Bronco!
