    Truck Nerf Bars

    Does anyone know a good local(Des Moines) place to purchase and install nerf bars/step sides for trucks?

    How about Shuling hitch? I've only ever used them for hitches but they've always been good.

    I just installed some on my 4Runner that I bought online. You can save a ton of cash and it isn't that difficult as long as you have SAE and Metric sockets.

    I bought mine from a place in altoona
    Truck Accessories for Chevy, Dodge, Ford, Toyota and SUV Accessories

    I installed them myself though took less than a hour.

    Don't go on the cheap here. Try and find something closed on the bottom as well.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Totally agree here. Any sort of opening in them is a no-no, they will be rusted through in a couple years.

    Also agree with putting them on yourself. About the easiest install there is if you have some basic tools. Save yourself the money and put it toward a better set.

    Best bet is stainless steel too. Just the plain black will rust in a year with all the salt they put on the roads.

    Re: Truck Nerf Bars

    Go to Total Truck, they have a lot of inventory, know their stuff, and are priced very well. Spent hours on the internet looking for the best priced stuff for my pickup and Total Truck had their stuff priced better. I know NAPA has good priced stuff but can be hard finding someone that knows a lot about what you want. Total truck does install stuff. Stay away from Hawkeye Truck they are wayyyyy high priced.

    Re: Truck Nerf Bars

    I would also do that myself. I agree with the last guy about Total Truck and Hawkeye Truck (and not just because of the name)

    I had my tonneau done by American Topper and Truck Accessories and they did a great job with that. Would recommend.
