The nerf bars arrived with all the necessary items for installation. It was very easy to install the bars and they look good and work well.

The bars arrived in a few days as expected. The passengers side had a small nick on the top. The instructions could have been a clearer. More pictures would help. The installation was more difficult than expected. There are eight holes to be drilled, which cannot be done with a standard 3/8" drill. Not enough room between the location of the holes and the gas tank. I had to buy a right angle drill to accomplish the task. Overall, I am pleased with the quality and appearance of the bars.

I helped select & installed these running boards on my friend's SUV. She did not take my advice about getting the 2" extenders but ended up wanting them after I installed the driver's side running board. They look nice & are of solid construction. I overtightened the nuts on one of the "U" bolts and broke it & had to contact Romik for a free replacement. The flat washers that are provided with the fastening hardware are too thin & ended up bending against the oversized slotted holes in the running boards & associated mounting hardware. I ended up purchasing additional flat washers that were thicker & of larger outside diameter to provide a sound installation. Also purchased additional SS nylon insert lock nuts & bolts because some of the nuts jammed while tightening, causing the bolts to shear. Galling of the threads is a problem when using SS nuts & bolts. I would have preferred using cadmium plated or galvanized nuts & bolts on this installation to eliminate the galling problem.
