Review of the Westin E-Series Round Nerf Bars

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.
