Re: running boards and Nerf bars

I tried some Carr hoop steps. They did assist entry but looked really vulnerable to rocks and stumps. They were also a tight fit against the saddle mounted house batteries. We use a folding step stool in camp now.

I got a pair of OEM Ford running boards for around $100 used on CL. We are 2WD and don't worry about high clearance.

Re: running boards and Nerf bars

Thanks for the input fellas.. I should specify I have a 2011 E350. Have been looking on CL but think I want Nerf bars,will still keep looking on CL though.
Found Tyger 3" stainless side step bars but they seem to be sold out,well everything I find is either sold out or anything in stock is for 08 and earlier.

I did not want the weight or the swing out step of the rockslide units so I had wicked fab build a set out of aluminum that have worked great. He is in Southern California and on this forum.

Re: running boards and Nerf bars

Those are nice gooseberry, didn't really take a good look at them out at Anza, what'd they run you? I got a set of the n-fab wheel to wheel nerf bars after whacking off a few of the Carr hoop steps in Moab, one almost took out my battery. The n-fab's attach to the pinch weld, look good, are fairly sturdy and tuck up pretty good,, but aren't rock rails by any means, they do have a smaller step that takes a bit of getting used to, esp coming from the hoops, $400

We did some horse trading on these so its questionable on what they really cost. He will be making me a new set out of 1/4 inch aluminum at some point because these are a prototype for the most part and not as rock proof as I want. I banged up both sides pretty good one night.

Re: running boards and Nerf bars

found the thread. Mike is trying to remember his login and will be on shortly. He sold his van to a friend of mine and has built a new house around a old one just because he wanted a challenge to do it himself.
