Video Transcript for Westin E-Series Round Nerf Bars Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Westin line of e series round nerf bars. So, whether you're looking for an easier way to get in our out of your vehicle or just add a nice stylish look to them, our Westin e series nerf bars are going to do a great job.Our e series nerf bars are going to come in two colors. We're going to have black as well as the stainless steel. The black ones are going to be made out of steel and they're going to have a powder coat finish. The polished ones are going to be made out of stainless steel and, again, have that polished look to them.Now, both of them are going to be extremely rust and corrosion resistant.The curved ends on the nerf bars are going to blend in nicely with the body, opposed to some of those that just come and abruptly stop. So, they're going to give us a really nice, streamlined look.

They're going to have that classic three inch round design, giving us enough room to have a step on, but not too much bulk to where it's going to add too much to the bottom of our vehicle.Each one of our bars is going to have a step for each entry point, so the driver and all passengers will have a secure footing when getting in and out.Each one of our pads is going to measure 21 inches long by 3 inches deep. It's going to be made out of a durable polymer so it's going to resist UV rays, fading, and cracking.Our tube steps are going to have an indention in them right where the pads are, rather than being cut out, that way they keep their structural integrity and we know they're going to be nice and strong.Our bars are going to be a custom fit, so be sure to check's fit guide for your application.They're going to come with two bars and all the necessary hardware to get them in place.The brackets that bolt underneath are going to be made out of steel with a black powder coat finish, so they're going to resist rust and corrosion as well and, no matter the color of the vehicle, it's going to blend in nicely underneath.A big question you might have when looking at steps is what is the big difference between all of them We're going to have a traditional step which is going to be a single step that typically bolts underneath. Now, the upside to that is it is going to help you get in and out of your vehicle. The downside, however, is is we're going to have to get one for each entry point.Then we'll have nerf bars which like we have here, which is going to be a bar that runs typically the length of the cab and it has a step pad at each entry point.Now, the big benefit of those is that it's one piece and we're going to still have that entry point and a pad to help us get in and out.And then we're going to have running boards. Now, the big difference between running boards and nerf bars is that running boards are still going to be that bar but they're going to to have a pad that's going to run the entire length so including the part where we wouldn't use between the two doors.

Which, that's really going to come down to style preference, if you like the nerf bars or running boards.That'll finish up your look at the Westin line of e series round nerf bars.

Just what I expected excellent !!!!!! I haven't installed them yet going Monday to put my Sport on a Lift so I can put em on!!!!

1989 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

Very happy, from the customer service to the fit and look.


They came well packaged but one end was kinda opened but everything seemed to be there. The first one the driver side I tightened as I went. I had to go back and forth loosening and tightening. The passenger side I left loose and mounted the bars to the mounts tight. Then I came back and tightened the large bolts to the frame. This worked a lot better. I used a impact to loosen the frame bolts and an air Ratchet to tighten the bars to the brackets. The air tools speeds up the process I learned this working on aircraft.I bought the green in the photos in 1997 it is a 96 it had 5445 miles on it now it has 253000 miles it. I bought the Westin bars for it shortly after I bought the truck. They still look good when clean.


Looks clean easy to install but I wish they would cap the ends so water and road salt would not get inside of the tube and rust from the inside out


etrailer is Very awesome company. I was dealing with a wonderful person named Diana. I needed 46 in in length 3 inch diameter for my Chevy regular cab 2002 Silverado. I was totally amazed on how quick and fast and smooth everything went. Diana is a joy to talk with and work with. I highly recommend etrailer. Thank you Diana and Company!


Everything went smoothly from ordering to installation. I’ve been very happy with everything I’ve ordered from etrailer.


The Nerf Bars are a perfect fit, and they look great on my truck. Korren C. was the greatest help. She is very knowledgeable about the products, and her follow-up is spectacular.


My son suggested I order from etrailer because he had dealt w/them before w/very good success. The running boards came yesterday afternoon. VERY well packaged w/banding & bubble wrap. They were in very good condition w/all necessary hardware to install. After unwrapping took him, my son, approx 45 min to install w/hand tools & an air impact on the ground in driveway. Instructions were "adequate" but a simple video I found online helped - We learn better by seeing. These boards are high quality, fast delivery & VERY good experience dealing w/etrailer.


Delivery was timely, and the package was in good shape. Gave updates to expected delivery w/ tracking #'s. Good quality and happy with the way it looks


Had Westin step rails (nerf bars) on an old Ranger and got them for my new F150. This time I needed them to be able to get up into the rig (full-size pickups have gotten a lot bigger and taller in the past few years!). They installed easily, look good, and gave me the step I needed. I am as pleased with the latest step rails I got as I was with the old ones (which are now 21 years old and still functional … but not as pretty).


Looks great and fit with no drilling. The directions are a little iffy, but since I do well with visuals I was able to make to directions work and installed them myself in under an hour.


The Westin 23-3700 Nerf Bars look great on my 2014 Chev
Silverado.Installation was very easy and took about 45 min.
Great quality.Excellent support and delivery from Etrailer.


Excellent help on the phone. Fast shipping. Great experience


I waited over 2 months for one of your competitors (who does not have the lowest price) to ship these step bars, got them from you in 3 days put them on same day they arrived. Thank you so much.


Great product. Had these on my truck for 11 years and just replaced. Since I plow, they probably took a beating more than usual.


Just what I needed to get in and out easily of my new 2023 F150 super cab. Great price. look great and easy install as everyone indicated. Completed the job in my driveway in about an hour with the help of my wife!


I have had Westin products before and have always been pleased with the quality. This is my first time doing business with e trailer and it has been a very good experience, great customer service and I would recommend to anyone to give them a try! Dan


I installed the 23-4010 nerf bars on my GMC Canyon Crew Cab SLT. Installation instructions from Westin were missing a few details that the etrailer installation video shows.

The nerf bars are polished stainless steel, but the are NOT protected by a clear coat. They will required polishing with a metal polish to keep them looking great. I rated them 4 stars due to no clear coat.

The first set delivered was shipped in just the Westin box & was damaged by UPS. etrailer promptly sent out a replacement set that was doubled boxed & arrived in good shape. Hopefully etrailer will double box in the future.


This is the 3rd set we have purchased for our diesel trucks. Westin is top notch in quality and style plus no drill install. Love this product!


Product was a perfect fit (2002 Siverado 1500) installed easily and is a great replacement for the rusted out ones I removed. They have been on the truck for about a year with absolutely no issues. The center mounting brackets make them very strong and overall I am very pleased with the purchase.


Thanks. The bars went on with no trouble at all. A second pair of hands helped a lot but the install was seamless. As you can see, they make the car look very nice. had to include picture of trailer hitch I purchased from you as well a while back. i recommend you to friends and coworkers.


The Nerf bars were easy to install. Each side took me 10 minutes. The instructions were very good and easy to follow


2007 Chevy Trailblazer - Parts fit with ease. Each side took about 30 minutes in my home garage floor with home garage hand tools I.e. Craftsman tools. Steps seem a bit too forward on the running boards, however, after installed the step is actually in the perfect location.

Customer service as always Very Helpfull! Thanks Etrailer!


Anna made it easy to get what I was looking for.


Shipping was fast and nerf bars were in perfect shape. Installation was easy. The bars look great on my truck and are easy to use when getting in or out. I would suggest that anyone installing these on a 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn Classic like mine remove the factory bolts on both sides while they are easiest to get to. I had to use a breaker bar as they are tight. I would also suggest to only engage 3 or 4 threads on the bolts that you have to fish through openings. I broke the supplied fishing wire on my first hole as I screwed it onto about ten threads and had trouble removing it when the time came to take it off the stud. Luckily, I was able to make another one from a similar sized spring I had on hand.

  • Running Boards/Nerf Bars Fit on 1998 Chevy K2500 Regular Cab
    There are some nerf bars that fit your 1998 Chevy K2500 regular cab, but I checked with each manufacturer individually and there are no running boards - which are up closer to the frame of the vehicle - whatsoever for the regular cab, and only cab-length nerf bars exist. Nerf bars are similar but there is a bit of a gap between the truck and the step. So you can get some help with a step up into your truck if you're okay with that. The correct fits for your truck are from Westin: - Polished...

  • Replacement Mounting Brackets for Westin Nerf Bars on 2006 Dodge Quad Cab Truck
    Since the nerf bars are designed to fit specific vehicles, you'll need a specific mounting kit for the bars more than one for the vehicle. The good news is that the 2004 and 2006 Dodge Ram Quad Cab both used the same bars. If you have the Westin Nerf Bars # 23-0500 or # 23-0505 you can use the Replacement Mounting Brackets # 23-050PK , but it doesn't appear that those are the correct bars to fit either of those trucks. Instead, the correct Westin nerf bars that are designed to fit the...
