Swap your OEM side steps for my nerf bars and rocker panel

Postby escapetooregon - September 20th, 2015, 3:28 am

Looking to replace my Steelcraft side step nerf bars with the factory side steps. Would like to make a parts swap with someone interested in my area (near Portland, Oregon). Even trade, no money exchanged. I'll give you my nerf bars plus the rocker panel molding to cover the place where the side steps come off your E, in exchange for your side steps. All hardware included with the nerf bars, plus I still have the original instructions for install.

Not looking to ship parts, just looking to find someone in my area. Please message me if interested!

OK, pics now. These are Steelcraft side step bars, 3" tube, black powder coated. The steps are a hard rubber. Bars fit an 08-10 E. There are two mounting brackets underneath on each side. They fit well and have held up to a few years of use now.

Why are you trading them if you don't mind me asking? I was looking into getting them myself. Any comments on them?

Those are great looking nerfs. The built-ins are more for looks then function, but to each his own :shrug:

The only reason I have them is because they work really well with the LEDs I put in

Well its about a year late replying, but, to Chuy: The nerf bars function just fine, I haven't had any issues with them as far as reliability and wear and tear. They allow you to access the roof easily, and the Steelcraft models look good on the car and integrate well with the shape of the side panels.

A few drawbacks are the rubber steps have faded in the sun, though I do park outside almost all the time, and I have not tried to restore them. Also the brackets holding the bars really reduce your ground clearance, they seem to hang much lower than seems necessary. The bars also make it hard for short legged folks to get in the car. No problem for me, but my gramma not so much lol. Mostly tho I want the change simply for aesthetics. I like the look of the factory side steps better after all.
