Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between the standard and premium nerf bars?

A: Our premium nerf bars have a higher nickel content which adds additional corrosion resistance over our standard product for those who live in harsh environments. If you don't consider yourself living in a harsh environment, then the standard product is great for you.

Q: Are the bars strong enough to hold 500 lbs?

A: Easily. The weight rating of nerf bars is a common misconception. The rocker panel of truck will bend before the nerf bar or brackets bend. Weight rating should not be considered when purchasing steps for your vehicle.

Product Details

Top Quality

Don't be surprised if the 5" Premium Nerf Bars outlast your truck. The Premium bars are manufactured using 304 marine grade stainless steel which is highly resistant to any rust or corrosion forming on the surface. Integrated end caps prevent any debris from getting inside the bar and sitting. The 5" Premium Nerf Bars come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. (Also available in Black Stainless Steel with a 5 Year Warranty)

Bigger is Better

Only on rare occasions is bigger not better. The obvious benefit of a bigger bar is going to be a bigger stepping surface for you to hop onto. After all, the main purpose of any nerf bar or running board is to help you into your vehicle. Thinner bars aren't going to be quite as safe as the Ionic 5" Premium Nerf Bars. Also, if you have a lifted truck, anything under a 5" bar isn't going to do it any justice.

Custom Brackets to Fit your Vehicle

Each set of Ionic nerf bars comes with brackets that are custom made to fit your vehicle. They are black powder coated brackets that look great on any vehicle. The brackets are designed for the easiest possible installation on your vehicle. Drilling is not required on most installation, and it generally takes about an hour to complete installation.

In The Box

The package includes both driver/passenger bars, all necessary brackets/bolts, and instructions. They are well packaged and generally in stock for a quick ship time.

Easy Installation

Installation varies by vehicle and detailed instructions are included. The boards are designed to bolt on to the factory provided mounting points. Sometimes, that includes the body mount locations where the truck body attaches to the truck frame. Some vehicles like the Tundra are designed with mounting holes in the rocker panel.
