The Steelcraft nerf barsare a good looking addition to my wife's Honda Element. The bars are easy to install and I did not need to even raise the vehicle to install them. Total install time was about an hour and a half as the directions to install the bars are very poor. (mounting directions with drawings of mountings would have been very helpful) I would suggest that you assemble the bars off the vehicle to get an idea of were the mounts are located then take them back apart once you have located the mounting holes. The mounts on the front are already threaded but it helps to run a thread chaser in the holes to clean out the undercoating. The back mounting is a body hole on the inner rocker panel and all you have to do is remove the body plug. The drivers side is a little harder to install than the passenger side because of the fuel tank guard limits you work space. All in all I would say that the Steelcraft nerf bars are well engineered and show good quality at a very fair price.
