I just put in an order for the Chrome Tubular Side Steps. Has anyone had any experience installing these.

Can I install these myself or should I book an appointment with the dealer???

Thanks

Havent installed/seen them on the Nitro but Ive installed them on a couple other vehicles and its really not a hard install, but just have at least one more person to help, 3 would be a good number for the install :) But if it were me, id defintely install it - for the satisfaction, quality, and saving a bunch of $$ aint bad either :D

I installed the Black Tubular ones on my Nitro. Took me about 35 minutes doing it myself. All you need is a 10mm socket, screwdriver and I cannot remember the other size socket. But it was way simple and the instuctions Dodge gives you are easy to follow.

I just installed my black rails a few nights ago. Me, some work lights, my dog and about 45 minutes was all that it took. It just proves that it can be done in the dark in 35 degree weather.:pepper:

I put mine put on a couple of days ago and must say that they look great!!! When I purchased them the dealer said that they would install them. I asked how much and they told me it was a couple hours labor. :mad: :mad: Said I would look into and if I needed help I would call. It took me about 35 minutes and they were on!!!! :p :p :p Believe me, if I can do the install then any moron can!!! Everything is pre drilled including the Nitro's frame ... just bolt them on!!!

Installed the chrome gas cover too!!! Looks sharp!!! :ura1: :ura1:
