Your Chevy Silverado is one of the biggest trucks you’ve owned, allowing you to move lots of furniture or other supplies and cruise down the highway in style. However, nothing ruins the power you feel when driving your Silverado more than being unable to step out of your truck easily. After you’ve made a few engine adjustments, you need new 2021 Silverado 1500 running boards to ease your exit from the truck. Here are some of the top nerf bar models that you should consider for your Silverado.
Podium Nerf Steps
Most original Silverado nerf bars are thin enough to fit the front of your toe and not much else, optimizing your vehicle’s speed and efficiency. If you have mobility or balance issues, though, you need the power of the N-Fab Podium Nerf Steps. These nerf bars are made of stainless steel in a variety of finishes, so they’re both durable and stylish. Each order includes two nerf steps, so you and your partner can leave the truck in style together.
Pro Traxx Oval Nerf Bars
If mobility isn’t a concern, consider the sleek design of Westin’s Pro Traxx Oval Nerf Bars. At just four inches wide, these bars are small enough that they don’t impair your offroading capabilities while still giving you enough support as you get out. They’re available in gray and black stainless steel, so pick a color that fits your truck’s aesthetic.
R5 Nerf Step Bars
Another popular option from Westin, the R5 Nerf Step Bars provide five inches of stepping room and fit into your existing sill. These bars are great if you’ve made Chevy 5.7 Vortec engine performance upgrades that increase your vehicle’s height without necessitating step bars. If you buy the black models, you receive a three-year warranty, and if chrome or polished steel is your style, those models have lifetime warranties.
OE Style Oval Nerf Bars
Rather than offering generic products, Raptor manufactures its four-inch OE Style Oval Nerf Bars to match your model of the Chevy Silverado. Even the least experienced car owners can install these bars, which work with the mounting that already exists on your car. Each bar is rated for 500 pounds, so you don’t need to worry about how much weight you’re carrying when you install the bars.
Five-Inch Oval Nerf Bars
Lund has its own version of oval nerf bars that are five inches wide. These bars boast plastic anti-slip pads that keep your boots secure when it’s rainy or muddy. All models are made of steel or a durable polymer, and they’re rated to hold 350 pounds. Choose whether you want your bar to extend for your truck’s entire length or just for the cab’s area.
Getting into and out of your Chevy Silverado shouldn’t be a struggle, whether your truck is at its original height or you’ve added a lift kit. Invest in the nerf bars that work best for your truck, budget, and lifestyle so that you don’t have to stress when it’s raining or you’re tired.
