How to Install Westin Nerf Bars on a 2006 Dodge Ram


Today on our 2006 Dodge Ram pickup, well be installing the Westin E-Series Three Inch Round Nerf Bars, part number 23-2320. Note, before we being our install, each process we do to one side will get repeated identically on the opposite side. To start our install well first remove the manufacturers body mount bolts. This will be a bolt and washer combination. Now with that removed were ready to go ahead and start installing the front and rear brackets. Securing the front and rear brackets well use the new 12 millimeter bolt along with a flat washer and lock washer.

Well install the lock washer and then the flat washer onto the bolt and run it through the bracket. Then well install the spacer block between the bracket and body mount. We can go ahead and install each one finger tight. Keep in mind that the short brackets will go to the front and the longer brackets will go to the rear. Now with the main bracket in place, were going to go ahead and install the support brackets.

Starting at the front, well go ahead and remove the tap covering the rocker panel hole and then we can insert the T-bolt. Then well install the T-bolt washer, which will be a clear plastic film that will assist in holding the T-bolt in position while we install our hardware. Now well go ahead and put the bracket onto the T-bolt and then secure it with a flat washer, split lock washer and nut. Then well take a bolt, flat washer and run it through the brace into the bracket, install a flat washer, split lock washer and nut. Keep in mind well secure each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place.

Note, the difference between the braces for the front and rear is, the front brace will have an angle kicking it down from the rocker panel to the front bracket and the rear brace will be more straight across. Next well go ahead and install the Nerf Bar onto the bracket. Its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the Nerf Bar while you install the hardware. The Nerf Bar has a preinstalled weld nut to thread into. Well use a inch bolt, split lock washer and flat washer.

Now with both sides installed and all of our hardware in place, well go ahead and tighten it down. Next well torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. With both sides installed and torqued to specifications, this will complete the install of the Westin E-Series Three Inch Round Nerf Bars, part number 23-2320 on our 2006 Dodge Ram pickup. .
