Trying to install NERF bars, need help
 
Just bought Nerf bars for my 05 TJ and I'm not sure if I've installed them correctly. The instructions were crap. Should they go beneath the rubber disk and should they give a bit when you step on them? If not does someone have a pic of correctly installed bars?

Thanks.

The rubber disk is a body mount.

Nerf bars are pointless.

Hope that helps.

Take them off and throw them as far away from your jeep as you can.

Unless you are planning not to go off road....:thumb:

sounds like your jeep is saying GET THESE OFF OF ME!! do as said above and get rid of them ASAP!! if you want "nerf bars" and plan to 4 wheel get these they double act as nerf bars and protect your rocker panels OR-FAB 84100BB - OR-FAB Side Bars for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

he just bought them, I'm sure putting them in the trash isn't on the top of his list. Who cares why he wants them.
Sorry man, I have no idea how they go on, but I wish you the best of luck in getting YOUR jeep looking exactly how YOU want it to.

Ditto to that! Unless you are building a serious rock crawler I can think of a lot of things that look pretty dorky on a jeep. But that is my opinion and I keep my opinions to myself unless someone asks.

Now Getting Back to the TOPIC, no, it doesn't sound like you have them installed correctly. Mine are a solid mount to the frame and don't move at all and I use them for bouncing off trees, large rocks, etc. Much cheaper than repairing my tub.

First off, what brand of Nerfs do you have and can you post a picture of how they are currently mounted? Need more information, as the saying goes :thumb:

Mine are solid also when I step on them. As well as have taken one hell of a beating on the trails! they are a bit dinged up, but still work great!
Good Luck!

mine don't budge , I modded them a bit so they are close to the body and ridged . They have no effect where I can drive but they do help getting in for my wife and I am slowly finding myself using them more often at 57 yo. As an Operating Engineer I have had my share of climbing operating heavy equipment for the last 35 years. I never thought I'd get old either but I had a surprise ahead of me as will others .

Thanks to you all. I appreciate all of the advice.

While I do agree that nerf bars can be ripped off off-road, for those of us who drive their Jeeps on road and are lifted, it does help get our butts into seats. If you guys don't use nerf bars as a step up, what do you use?

In addition to protection, I also needed a functional step for my wife. Detours Drop-Kick Slyders accomplishes both.
