Default Re: Repair or replace step or nerf bars?

Oh heck yeah, no doubt

The rear bracket in the video, the flat washers they use, mine are just a little too small on the outer diameter, too easy to slip and start to pass through the bracket.

You might need fender washers? I haven't fingered my hardware box yet.

Yeah, something like that, i call them penny washers, after old English penny

If you look at that huge bolt for the front bracket on yours, the one that goes into the step bar itself, you'll see a larger washer and bolt, same on mine.

The rear bracket users much smaller ones, same size as the front mount bracket to the body, i think using the larger washers specified for the front, on the rear bracket, will be just about right.

I fingered mine and it has 4 of the larger washers.We used to play a game, when we were kids called washers,bury 2 cans like tuna cans about 20' apart and toss the washers to try to get them in the cans,about like small scale horseshoes is played.
