Hey to all,

getting my Nissan step bars for my '10 Pro tomorrow and want to install them this weekend.

for those who have them on their trucks - is this something that i can do myself and what is the best/safest way to do it ?

i assume they just bolt on but not sure :confused:

any help is appreciated

Take a minute and crawl under your truck by the door and look up. You will see a few bolts sticking out that the nerf bars slide over and a nut will secure it all.

Nothing to it, no special tool, and no guessing they bolt right on.

One thing the little flat head philips screws that hold the plastic step plate onto the side step will start to rust on you or atleast mine did. If you take them out you should be able to get stainless replacements at any hardeware store like ace or true value and if I recall they are Metric.

Here ya go!

Brackets to the frame get 9.4 ft/lbs.

Brackets to the step get 6.2 ft/lbs.

And when you get a chance take out the stock screws on top of the step rail and change them to stainless. Mine started rusting in a week.

Its easy, just dont overdo it bolting the brackets to the frame. I got a little too in to it and broke the stud off the frame on one of them. Be gentle, they dont require much torque.

Alternate mounting options

Its easy, just dont overdo it bolting the brackets to the frame. I got a little too in to it and broke the stud off the frame on one of them. Be gentle, they dont require much torque.

Same thing happened to me on the Rear driver side lower bolt. Did you find any alternative to mount the bracket? Weld? Cement Weld? Etc?
