Does anyone know what nerf bars these are?

Anyone know who makes these & what's the opinion of the quality of them?

Mine are shot & need replacement...

Jason, those don't look so strong at the front mounting point. More akin to "sidesteps" than "sliders", if that's what you're looking for. I'd suggest you ask about the tube thickness too, just to understand what you're buying.

I have the factory side steps in great shape that I'm considering taking off, if you're interested. Ideally I'd like to get a rear gastank skid plate, or front steering guard.

I've decided to stay away from the factory nerf bars. I'd be happy with sliders that worked as a good side step as well, but I haven't seen any that fit that description. I think I'll end up with sliders and going with flip-up side steps which I'll figure a way to mount "over" the sliders & perhaps devise a quick-release mechanism to take them off when clearance is really needed...

The truck has to be girlfriend-friendly as well as 'safari rated'

Are the side steps worth anything in terms off road protection, or frankly a waste?

The factory nerf bars are of some minimal value in offroad protection but mostly just reduce your ground clearance. Just a styling/appearance and practical thing (easing entry/egress).

The many brands of sliders out there offer real protection and sacrifice little to no clearance (based on the brand), but aren't often very useful in climbing into the truck.

Those 4x4ag sliders look a lot like the Safari Gard heavy-duty sliders, which I use. Except the SG sliders also have a diagonal brace running down from the slider, bolted to the frame. They mount in place of the door sill body panel, so really don't reduce clearance (except for that brace). Plus they have that tube running parallel to the slider, which provides more of a step-surface than most sliders. One downside of the diagonal brace is it runs right through where you might be inclined to install an auxiliary fuel tank....

I started with the LR OEM sliders, which work great as steps (or platforms for outboard passengers), but kill clearance.

Trevor, they are not 4x4ag sliders. They are made by Scorpion Racing. If we made our own sliders we would've included a 3' ladder so that Glenn could get into his D90.... j/k

Jason,

I bought some full length side steps from www.britishpacific.com a few years ago for our Discovery. While they are not sliders they are beefy and I have used them as sliders and they have held up very well. My wife did not want sliders on her car so this was a compramise that has worked out well. Thet are tubular steele with diamond palte on top. Call BP for more info.

Hi John,

Yes, I saw those awhile back, and they do look like they'd work great... but I thought they were a bit too expensive for my budget.

I think what I'll eventually do is either build something like those myself, or go with something simpler just to replace the sills (externally visually the same - paint to match the body) & then use the flip-down steps for entry/exit of the vehicle. I thought it would be pretty cool to work out a fairly simple pin-disconnect system for the steps....
