Let’s talk about nerf bars and truck steps (running boards). What are the differences, and which ones will work best for you? To answer this, you need to know what they both really are and then go with what fits your needs the best.
The definition of a nerf bar is: “A tubular steel bumper on some racing cars to keep wheels from touching when cars bump during a race”. Keep in mind that a “nerf” is a small, sometimes intentional collision. In the late 60’s and 70’s as the off road world was coming into its own, it was a normal practice for off roaders to build these steel tubes and mount them on the sides of their trucks for body protection from these “nerfs”. As a side benefit, it made it easier to get into their lifted trucks, and the nerf bar was born. With the simple addition of step pads at the points of entry, Nerf Bars turned into one of the most popular truck and SUV accessories today.
Now that you know what a nerf bar is, and how it came to be, let’s look at running boards. Mr. Webster had this simple little bit to say about running boards: “a long, narrow board that is attached to the side of a vehicle to make it easier for people to get in and out of a vehicle”, basically a safe and simple way to get in and out of your truck.
We have both solutions, and work with great companies like Amp Research Power Steps, Smitty Bilt, Deezee, Aries, Go Rhino, Iron Cross, Westin, and others to ensure that we have every solution possible for you truck.
The list of accessories goes on and on, but we can’t exclude some key exterior items like fender flares and bumpers. Both these items accomplish much more than amazing aesthetics, they provide protection both on-road and off. As you would expect, we have multiple preferred manufacturers here as well. We have your application covered by names like Road Armor, Smittybilt, Warn, Bushwacker, Rough Country, Nfab, Westin, and countless more.

Our full line of performance parts work to unlock your truck’s hidden power by allowing the engine to do its job more efficiently. All else being equal, an efficient engine uses less gas and produces more horsepower than an inefficient one. Therein lies the appeal of many performance parts — they can give you more horsepower and better fuel economy at the same time. The right performance upgrades may even pay for themselves over time, because you’ll spend less money at the pump. The more popular performance parts categories include air filters and intakes, exhaust components, and performance electronics.
