Video Transcript for Westin HDX Nerf Bars with Drop Steps Installation - 2021 Ram 2500

Hey everyone, Shane here with etrailer.com. Today I have a 2021 Ram 2500, and I want to walk with you how to install the Westin Nerf Bars. Now, some of the biggest reasons why you would want Nerf bars, one they add a lot style to your vehicle. Two, on a bigger vehicle like this, again, this is a Ram 2500, the stock ride height without steps, I'm six foot tall, and it would be hard for me to get in and out of it. I'd have to throw one foot up and then pull myself up in order to get up into the seat. With running boards or Nerf bars, we don't have to worry about that.

Now our front two steps are going to be four inches wide by 16 inches. So it gives us plenty of room for feet. What's unique about this setup is we have a six and a half foot bed truck. So we have a shorter bed, right Our back step is going to be smaller but it allows us access to get into the back of our truck. If we need to.

You can see they're going to be a drop step style. When we compare them to some of the other styles of Nerf bars, you have your round Newport Nerf bars. You have more of a flat top, but it's straight across, what sets these apart from those is they give it more of a rugged look. Also our steps are actually going to be steel instead of a plastic. So they're going to give us a lot more grip.

Each one of our steps is going to have a stainless steel tread plate that can be removed if they need to be cleaned. It's going to have tread in it. Their holes are designed to allow water, and dirt, and debris to fall down through the holes and keep them off the bottom of your feet to make sure that you have sure footing when getting in and out of the vehicle. Everything else here is going to be a steel construction. It's going to have a very durable black powder coat finish.

As far as the installation process, pretty straightforward. I will say the instructions are a little bit difficult to, they're a little bit more of a pain to follow, but once I got one on, it's pretty simple and it makes sense. They're going to come with all the necessary hardware to get them installed. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's walk through how we install them. To start your installation we need to come underneath the vehicle, our rocker panel, we're going to have tape with two holes underneath of it. Those are the holes we need to remove the tape on. Once you remove them, you're going to take a nut plate. We're going to slide it in the hole like this. Then you're going to put it on the isolator and that's just to keep the nut plate from falling into the hole. Then you're going to have a rivet in your kit. It doesn't matter which hole you go to. You're gonna take it. You're gonna slide it in like that. You're going to have three of these you're gonna install along each rocker panel on each side. Our second one's going to be toward the center of the vehicle. And of course, don't forget your rivet. Third one, it's gonna be located right before the back of the cab, it separates to go to the bed of the truck. Each one of our brackets are going to be labeled. Can you see this is our front driver's side, DF for driver front, then of course you have your driver rear, driver center, and then your passenger front, side, or front, rear, and center. From here we're going to take two of our longer hex bolts. We're going to put on a lock washer and a flat washer and we're going to take our driver's front bracket. The only thing different between this bracket and the five remaining ones is we're not going to be installing or the bracket's not going to actually go on to the top bolt coming out. We're going to line it up. We're going to take our longer hex bolts. Flat washer, a flat washer. We'll thread one into our rivet, that'll hold it in place. And our second one, we're gonna rotate the nut plate to where it will line up with one of the holes then we'll install another bolt. Then we're going to have some black button head Allen head bolts, we're going to put on a flat washer. We're gonna go through the pinch weld. And then on the backside, we're going to put a nut. Once you get one done, repeat the same process for the second one. For our center bracket, we're over the top of our bolt. And then of course we have the same hardware here at the bottom. And for the bolt, flat washer, lock washer, and then nut. This is gonna be our rear one. We're gonna install it just the same way as our second one. With the exception of it's going to have two bottom holes that go into the pinch weld, like our front one did. Then we'll have two black bolts that'll install right here. Next we need to grab our template for our driver's side. What we're going to look for is where the cab or the bed starts, you're gonna come back and you're going to find the bed rail. You're gonna take this template, it's going to be marked, align with the end of the bed rail. And actually the part that I already cut off says align with thin wall. So, which is this piece of metal right here. You can see I got two pieces of tape on it. We're gonna line it up with the end of our bed rail. Like this. Once we get lined up, we're going to drill out this hole and this hole to a half inch. We're going to take our pull wire, we're gonna go in this most center hole, out towards the outside of the bed, we're gonna come out at the end of the frame rail there, we're going to take a nut plate and thread it on. Let it frame around. You want it to come out just like that. We're going to put a second nut plate just like that. You're going to have a bracket that looks like this. We want this facing towards the inside. And we go over the two bolts like this, and on each one, we're going to put a flat washer, lock washer, and a nut. Next we're going to have to remove this trim piece. We're going to have a bolt in here on the backside. Now we're gonna have plastic pushpins that go up like this. Pushpins they have wings on them. So when they go through the hole, they spread out and that's what keeps them in place. Take a pair of needle nose and squeeze the two, that'll allow you to pop those loose. Go ahead and reinstall this bolt if you want. Hold the bottom portion of your wheel well liner in place, then we can install the bracket that goes here. The rear bracket is going to look like this. You're going to have two isolators. One's going to have a spacer in it. Slide it in top or bottom. It doesn't matter. The other one is going to go right on the bottom and we're going to squeeze the two together. You're gonna have a long hex bolt, with only a lock washer, the large flat washer. We're going to come up from the bottom. And take this bracket and bolt, and we're going to thread right into that bracket we just installed. I'm gonna make sure that these are facing out. Now, with an extra set of hands we're gonna slide our step over our brackets, hex bolt, lock washer, flat washer. It's going to be the short ones in the kit. We'll get one in on each end to hold it in place, while we install our remaining hardware. This is going to be our hardware. Our back bracket is actually going to mount on the outside of the step. Where are the rest of our brackets are going to mount to the inside. We're going to come back and we're gonna start tightening all of our hardware down. We're gonna start tightening the step to the brackets first. Then we're going to tighten this top bracket that's on our bed. And we'll come back. We'll tighten this bolt. Then we'll come back and we'll tighten the bolts holding the brackets to the rocker panel. Then we're gonna come back and we're gonna torque all of our hardware to the specifications listed in the instructions. Once you get one side done here repeat the process on the other. That's going to do it for a look at and installation on the Westin NDX Nerf Bars on 2021 Ram 2500..

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! Thanks

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.


Comments
The bars and the finish still look “like new” and always get compliments. The only hang up is that the bars prevent shops from using their side lifts to rotate tires when you’re doing an oil change. No worries tho, I’ll rotate the tires on my own.

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


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.

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


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 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.

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.

Thank you for your review. These bars do have a 3-year warranty. I have informed customer service to contact you.

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 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.

I like the steps, only issue is the color faded very quickly and I am now probably going to have to take them off and get them line-xed.
