    So I have stainless steel step tubes on my Dodge Nitro. My front left side the washer the bolts screw into rusted off. My question is do you think I can just get a bigger bolt and thread it right in the Step tube itself?

    Good question. Not sure exactly what area you are talking about.

    Hi with your side tube if your idea of a new washer is no good how about cleaning the old fixing off and have a tab welded to a bolt, then insert the the tab end into the tube and with the bolt projecting out of the hole secure with a washer and nut, here in the Uk with my new side steps that is how the main brackets are held into the chassis, a 8mm bolt welded onto a 8mmx20mm piece of steel, the tab is put into the chassis hole with the bolt showing or if the tube is thick enough to take a weld replace the old part with a new nut.Pay for my flight and I'll come and fix it I need to visit Cleveland.

    I recently ordered Romik nerf bars for my 2007 Dodge Nitro SXT. I am really impressed with its wide anti-slip surface. It was easy to install and didn't require any drilling. It was also offered for free shipping.
