Expert Answers about Aries Automotive

  • Can a Bull Bar be Installed on a 2016 Chevy Colorado without Removing Factory Tow Hooks
  • I checked the installation details for Aries Bull Bar # AAB35-4015 for your 2016 Chevy Colorado and have also linked them here for you. The instructions state that the factory tow hooks if present will have to be permanently removed to install the bull bar. With the Westin Ultimate Bull Bar # 32-3645 you will be able to keep the tow hooks.

  • Are Aries Nerf Bars for a 2014 Ford Explorer Wheel to Wheel
  • The Aries nerf bars # AAS223041 for the 2014 Ford Explorer can be considered wheel to wheel. Take a look at the picture I have included that shows the silver version installed (we haven't a picture of the black ones). You can see that they basically extend the length of the cab. There is no drilling required for installation.

  • Will Aries Switchback Headache Rack Work With BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Cover on 2017 Chevy Colorado?
  • Yes, you can install the Aries Switchback Headache Rack # AA1110109 with the BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Cover that fits your 2017 Chevy Colorado, # BAK26125 for a 6 foot bed or # BAK26126 for a 5 foot bed. The Switchback Headache Rack mounts in your truck's stake pockets, and as you can see in the accompanying photo of the BAKFlip G2 installed on a '16 Colorado, this tonneau cover mounts inside your truck's bed rails leaving the stake pockets free. The only potential concern is that the headache...

  • Can Aries Nerf Bars for a 2016 Toyota Tacoma Take a lot of Abuse from Off-Roading
  • The available nerf bars for your 2016 Toyota Tacoma, including # AAS222008-2, mount to the rocker panels on the truck. This location is not as strong as a frame connection but since the frame is too far inboard the connection has to be at the rocker panels. That would mean if you repeatedly made connect with the ground or something else while off roading then that connection point can get damaged. Also the bars are not solid stainless steel so I would not be surprised to see some dents...

  • What Size Light Bar is Compatible with the Aries Bull Bar # AAB35-9002 for a 2014 Nissan Xterra
  • I spoke with my contact at Aries Automotive who said that the mounting holes are 18.5" apart on center and that the inside to inside measurement of the Aries Bull Bar with Skid Plate # AAB35-9002 is 26.85" but that it angles up. The pre-drilled holes do not go all the way through the bar (so you don't need extra long bolts) and there are no mount tabs welded to the back of the crossbar. Because of the angled design you will want to use a light bar that is no longer than 22". The Aries...

  • Weight Capacity of Nerf Bars for a 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • Determining the weight capacity for a set of nerf bars is 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. With that being said, Aries does not rate the Aries Round Nerf Bars part # AA204045 for a maximum weight capacity. For an option that does list a maximum weight capacity, I recommend...

  • Recommended Headache Rack and Intended Purpose for 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The Aries Switchback Headache rack like # AA1110109 is not a fit for your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500. I've linked the page to the Aries options that are a confirmed fit for your truck. If you have a 6-1/2 foot bed, I recommend the Aries AdvantEdge Headache Rack # AA1110104 and for an 8 foot bed # AA1110105. I've attached a video to assist. Headache racks are not rated for the amount of weight or the impact speed as that can obviously vary. They are intended to be a protection from...

  • Grille Guard Compatibility with Front Mounted Hitch Receiver for 2004 Ford Expedition
  • For your 2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer, the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 31352 is the only front mounted hitch receiver that will be compatible and is only compatible for 4x4 model. The Aries Grille Guard - 1 Piece - Black Powder Coated Steel # AA3054 will mount in the same location so they can not be used together, but it will fit 2WD or 4WD models. We do not have a winch mounting option outside of the front hitch mount. Let me know if you have...

  • Can LATCH Car Seat be used with Aries Bench Seat Cover AA3146G
  • The seat belt access holes on the lower portion of the cover # AA3146G will allow you to connect the lower portion of the car seat to the LATCH system and then the anchors above will be accessible over the top of the cover. The cover would not negatively affect using a car seat at all.

  • Recommended Running Boards for a 2019 Honda Pilot

I have attached a sample installation video and the written instructions for you to check out.

  • Bench Seat Cover Recommended For 1992 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat
  • Unfortunately we don't have a bench seat cover that is a specific fit for your 1992 Ford F-150. I reached out to Covercraft and they didn't start making the bench seat covers until 2004 and at that only for 250 and 350 models. They said they don't have anything confirmed to fit your vehicle. What I recommend is the Aries Automotive Seat Defender Bench Seat Protector with Headrest Covers - Universal Fit - Brown # AA3146BR You would need to check dimensions for a possible fit. The...

  • How Does Aries Automotive Seat Cover Stay In Place on a 2018 Ram ProMaster 2500
  • On seat cover # AA3142B the back side has a non-skid type of material that will grip the seat portion and the seat back to help prevent it from coming out of position. It is still possible, if conditions are right, for it to come out of position. I have included a link to our returns policy for you. Curt trailer hitch # C13295 is a fit for your 2018 Ram ProMaster 2500. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation on a similar van for you. Curt wiring harness #...

  • Spare Tire Carrier Suitable for Use in 2-Inch Hitch on 1997 Jeep Cherokee
  • The Aries Swing Away Spare Tire Carrier # AA2563000 is intended specifically for use on the 2007 thru 2017 Jeep Wranglers. It is not a fit for the 1997 Cherokee. I checked with Aries to make certain. But we do have spare tire carrier options that might work. We offer the Curt Universal Spare Tire Carrier # C31006 which fits into a 2-inch hitch. This can be used with anti-rattle lock # 63232 which secures it to the hitch and Spare Tire Lock # 4324 which secures the spare to the carrier.

  • Comparing the Aries Advantage Headache Racks for 2500 Short Bed Versus Long Bed
  • I reached out to my contact at Aries and the difference between the # AA1110204 for the short bed and the # AA1110205 for the long bed 2500 is about a 1/4 inch in width. The 1/4 inch doesn't sound like much, but is the difference between a fit to your 2500 with 8 foot bed or not according to the manufacturer.

  • Installation of Aries Grille Guard AA3061 on 2010 Ford F-350
  • I checked the installation instructions for the Aries Grille Guard, part # AA3061, and there is no need to remove the tow hooks on your 2010 Ford F-350. The bottom mounting brackets for the grille guard will mount next to the tow hooks. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Aries grille guard. If you take a look at figure 5, you can see that the mounts bolt up just outboard of the tow hooks. The total weight of the Westin grille guard is around 70 lbs. One person...

  • For a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500 6-1/2 foot bed we have the part # AA111000 which is a confirmed fit from Aries but the part number you mentioned will not work as it is designed for newer trucks. Another option similar in appearance that is a fit is the DeeZee Headache Rack part # DZ95050RTB.

  • Approximate Install Time for Aries Oval Nerf Bars AA4445017 on a 2008 Ford F-150
  • Aries shows the level of difficulty for nerf bars # AA4445017 as "easy." Most customers could perform the installation in 2 hours tops and that would be with taking your time. If you have a lot of experience with automotive projects you might be able to knock it out in about an hour.

  • Is There a Torque Rating for the Install Hardware for Aries AeroTread Boards on 2017 Honda Pilot
  • Aries actually does not list a torque rating for the install bolts of the Aries AeroTread Running Boards # AA2061029 that you referenced. You'd have to tighten them basically as tight as you can by hand. The install instructions I attached show the recommended way to tighten the hardware. First you snug the hardware down once everything is mounted and bolted in place and then you go ahead and tighten the hardware.

  • Seats Covers for a 2018 Coachmen Freelander
  • I spoke with one of the largest seat cover manufacturers in the industry (Covercraft), unfortunately they do not have any custom fit seat covers for the high back swivel seats in your 2018 Coachmen Freelander. Therefore, the only option for you is a universal one like the Aries Automotive Seat Defender Bucket Seat and Headrest Protector part # AA3142G for gray, part # AA3142B for black, or part # AA3142BR for brown. The Seat Defender is easy to install, waterproof, and has a rubber underside...

  • Removing Push Pins to Install Nerf Bars on a 2007 Honda Ridgeline

  • Comparing Westin, Pilot Automotive and Aries Step Bars for 2009 Chevy Silverado
  • I'd be happy to help you with that. The Pilot Automotive/Bully nerf bars are what I'd refer to as more of an entry-level product. Aries is more of a mid-priced option that are on par quality wise with the bars offered by Westin. All three manufacturers offer similar warranties against manufacturer's defects. If it were in your shoes, here's how I'd make the decision. If I was planning on keeping the truck until it died of old age, I'd get the higher quality Westin bars like # 25-1405...
