My '09 Ram's chrome Nerf Bars were in terrible condition. The PO had them installed by the dealership when he bought the truck new. I was prepared to go to the metal yard today and fab my own using the existing brackets and 2" X 4" tube stock. I woke up with a different idea...Why not? I had nothing to lose? $14 dollars later. Here's what I did... Tools. Some type of flap looking disc on the grinder. A chisel to pick off the chrome flakes. Some flap disc work. Bottom of the bar. I put the mounting bolts back in to give the tube some legs for the top side. Used some Purple Power and cleaned up the plastic.
