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.
They do not sag at the back end.

I am very satisfied with the new bars. They have a wide base to step on. I was concerned about how rigid they would be at the back end of the truck near the back wheels. The brackets on wheel to wheel bars are positioned several feet from the back end and on many bars sag badly when you step On the back end. The manufacture indicated these bars are rated at 500 pounds. They do not sag badly at the back end. Installation was easy but the directions where confusing.
