"Just what I needed for my 84 Chevy K5 Blazer Hobby Project - not only do they look great but they help my 5 1 wife climb into this tall truck.Would have given this five stars across the board but the instructions were all pictures with no words and I had a little trouble figuring out how the angle braces needed to go to support the bars below the frame. Once past that however installation was a breeze. Very happy with this product." posted by: Tennessee John on April 9, 2014

"I replace my original Nerf bars that were rusted out and forgot how nice the truck looks with them. The Dee Zee brand were the lowest priced bars I've found and they look great. It took all of about two hours to install and calling to make sure the parts list was not updated took the 30 minutes of that. The "O-Rings" listed have been replace with caps and they were embossed "Remove before installation" so I was a little confused. Once that was resolved, I used my pneumatic ratchet to knock-out the install. Time will tell on how well the hold-up in the woods, but for now I'm pleased with them." posted by: Beef on September 5, 2010 view all 5 reviews

The problem with tall trucks is you can't enter and exit the cabin without the possibility slipping and injuring yourself. If your Dodge Ram 1500 is standing several inches off the ground, then there's no way to get inside it and start rolling if you don't have nerf bars attached to the sides. Dodge Ram 1500 nerf bars are great-looking exterior accessories that allow you to step in and out of the truck without difficulty, regardless of the weather situation. These tubular bars prevent any slipping and sliding that may cause serious head injuries. When fitted on the sides of your Dodge, these nerf bars provide an instant boost in the overall exterior style and appearance. It creates a sleeker and sportier look that can make your Dodge truck stand out.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • Are wheel-to-wheel Dodge Ram 1500 nerf bars better than sport tubes?
    Answer: Wheel-to-wheel nerf bars are ideal for Dodge Ram 1500 trucks because of their length. They run along the entire side of the truck, from the front end all the way to the rear wheel wells. The wheel-to-wheel design provides quick truck bed access for convenient loading and unloading of cargo. This nerf bar style also helps in reaching the roof or utility racks more easily. Sport tubes, on the other hand, are only used for aesthetic purposes, making the truck appear tougher and ready for the off-road. However, these tubes have smaller tubing diameters that are not fit for heavy-duty applications. They also have minimal weight capacity, so they can't be used to provide leverage when accessing the truck bed. Sport tubes are ideal for Dodge drivers who prefer style over function.
  • Dodge Ram 1500 nerf bars make odd squeaking sounds whenever the truck is driven across rough terrains. What causes this problem?
    Answer: The squeaking noise is probably coming from the nerf bar mount or bracket that is rubbing against the bottom side of the Dodge Ram's body. To protect the truck's paint and stop the squeaks, put rubber patches or tubes between the metal mounts and the body panels. Make sure the rubber fits properly or it will just create more problems on the truck's exterior. The bolts on the Dodge Ram 1500 nerf bars should also be tightened to the correct torque rating. Bolts that are loose or too tight may also cause squeaking noises.
  • What's the best DIY remedy for rusty nerf bars on a Dodge Ram 1500?
    Answer: When left untreated, rust can weaken Dodge Ram 1500 nerf bars until they can no longer provide enough protection and support. Naval jelly or other rust dissolver solutions can be used to remove the oxidized layers on the metal surface. If there's only a thin layer of rust, it can still be remedied using a rust-fixative primer to neutralize the rust and stop it from spreading. Rust-resistant metal paint should also be applied for a more polished and long-lasting finish.
