Just thought I'd share my thoughts on this set up.....
1. Super easy installation in under an hour and a half. ( would have been less, but I dropped a bolt down inside the rocker and had to fish it out.
2. 3 bracket mount.
3. Seem plenty sturdy for a rocker mount step. ( I'm 200 lbs)
4. Lifetime warranty on tubes.
5. Under 350.00 shipped to my door
6. Part Number 0402-0163.....i know it says 2500 and 3500, but they fit great on my 1500!

I have been looking for some nerfs or steps for my 4x4 regular cab long bed. My main concern is to lose as little ground clearance as possible. Is your truck a 4x4? If so, how much ground clearance do you have under the lowest part of the mount? Since these are rocker mount, I am assuming that you have to drill holes.


I have been looking at n-Fab wheel to wheel tubes, but they are very expensive compared to others.

I will measure later today when I get a minute. Yes my truck is 4x4. No drilling at all, this set utilizes the factory mount holes which is another added bonus. I actually wanted the 5" bars but they are on a nationwide back order for 4-6 more weeks. I was a little skeptical about the 4" bars on a crew with the 6'4" bed as I thought they would look to small. They actually look quite nice and look proportional.

12 " of ground clearance give or take at the front. That being said, my skid plate actually is closer to the ground than my bars.

To me they look good enough that it looks like they belong on it, looks very natural.

Thanks for the info. They really look good on your truck. It's going to be hard for me to find wheel to wheel bars for a regular cab with long bed and I may have to modify ones like yours.

The Raptor website states that they have custom lengths available. Perhaps they can make it for your truck configuration or already have. ;)
