I think most nerf bar are bolt to the stock running board location which is to the body.cauch235 said:i just put on a 2" rb body lift and i am looking to put on some tube steps... but i dont want there to be a 2" space between the body and the step.... where can i find some that bolt onto the body? thanks
None bolt to the body. They all bolt to the frame. You'd either have to modify the bracket that comes with the nerf bars or have one fabbed up.cauch235 said:i just put on a 2" rb body lift and i am looking to put on some tube steps... but i dont want there to be a 2" space between the body and the step.... where can i find some that bolt onto the body? thanks
Okay, shorty. I'll buid you some sliders, and we'll do some PIVOTING steps, so they will move out of the way of offending rocks. Or, make them removable, using quick disconnect clips. Save your money, buddy!! We are gonna find some new ways to spend it!! I came up with a bitchin' idea, and you will get to be the first!!! :xdevil:cauch235 said:you wanna help me with some steps?
I got a pair of Stubbs sliders, with a 15 degree cant. I bought some skateboard adhesive backed replacement grip sheet (don't exactly know what they call it) at Academy, then cut it lengthwise into a 1" strip. I stuck that on the top of the sliders, under the doors, and they work great to provide grip on the sliders. If you want something lower, and more sure-footed, then get square sliders, with no cant, and stick the tape on top of that.cauch235 said:the only thing about sliders is that they are really close to the cab and i am not sure how good they would work as steps
Internal spring loaded steps, dropping down a LITTLE bit from the sliders. I envision them sloped, so they don't hang up on rocks, but bounce back into place. But, it may not work. If so, some steps on quick disconnects to remove with 2 pins for the trail. They will be easy enough to make. Once we crush a test set!!!! I'm pretty sure my idea is sound. Like my bumper idea. Not complicated, and easy enough.cauch235 said:actually i am 5'6" and a half!!! what kind of idea are you thinkin about paul?
If she ripped hr pants getting in, and it wasn't the CROTCH, raise the steps 1.5 inches!!!!Live4yotas said:Mine bolt to the frame I have a 3" performance products body lift. I have grizzly double bend nerf bars. I dont do rock crawling so I havent damaged them yet. I put them on b/c at the double bend they drop down and kinda cover the frame plus my g/f was bitching at me b/c she ripped a pair of her pants tring to get in.
