Video Transcript for Westin HDX Nerf Bars Review

What's up everybody Adam, here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the line of HDX Westin Running Boards. The HDX Running Boards are gonna be made of a steel construction. They have a nice powder coated finish, which is a flat black, which I really like. It's like a matte type and it really does mimic the OEM trim, which I really like. It adds to the look, but I really like these just because they are really cool looking.

But the nice thing about these is a wheel to wheel step. So we have one for the front, one for the back, but also one for the truck bed. So if we wanted to get anything out of the back, step on this, grab whatever you need, if you have a fuel pump or something back here for your farm equipment, and that'd be very, very handy, but also for your tool boxes that you have. I really liked that. I really wanted my dad to be able to get in and out of his truck bed, all the stuff, and this is definitely gonna help it do it.

The cool thing about this is, it's a one-piece design, so it's nice and solid and it's super, super clean and tight to the bottom of our rocker panels. This truck is lifted. So, what I really like about these steps is it gives you an extra two inches just to make sure you're not having to really step up a bunch to get into your truck. And I really liked that just because it makes it a lot easier to get in and out. And when it comes to the step, it's about 15 and a half inches long and about four inches wide.

So I got big old work boots on. So I'll be able to get in here. If you have stuff on your roof, you'll be able to get up like that. And it's totally fine. You kind of have to hold yourself up a little bit, but there's plenty of room there, especially if your boots are bigger than mine.

Another thing that I like about these is the grip. So these are die stamped. And what that means is they basically just take a big piece of steel and they just, stamp it in there. So if I we're to compare these to let's say like the Westin Nerf Bars, they just have these rubber pads that go on top. And that's what was actually on here before, but they start cracking and plastic just doesn't really give you the grip that you want. With this it's actual extrusions in the steel, which is gonna give you a lot of grip. This isn't the most grip you can get. If you wanted to get extreme grip, but maybe not have a running board that looks as cool. The Westin Grate Steps are gonna have the best grip possible, but all in all, I just love the looks of these. It adds a really good look and it just covers all the bases I need. I've had a lot of different running boards and a lot of different trucks, but with these there's not a whole lot of flex. So when you get those nerf bars and the brackets are super long, they start to flex out. But with this, like there's a little bit of flex, but that's just normal, but this is nothing compared to some of the other ones. So the brackets are really, really good and strong. They're really, really small too. So it just basically goes to the under side of your rocker panels and it doesn't reach all the way to your body mounts. That is something I like. I just don't like to step on a step and it just gives so much. I always feel like I'm breaking it, but this is rugged, it's tough, and it's extra, extra strong. There's a bunch of different kits that we have on our website. You can get one that's wheel to wheel, but if you just want the cab running board, you can get those as well. The only difference between the different kits is just the different mounting hardware and brackets and stuff like that. So, use our fit guide and that'll help you get set up with the exact kit for your exact vehicle. And that'll do it for a look at the Westin HDX Running Boards..

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


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.

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.

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 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.

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

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.

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


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!!

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.

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


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 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.

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.
