Installing Nerf Bars

Bought nerf bars and no instructions on how to install them. They are for a 97 f150 extended cab 4x4. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Don't believe they are frame mount but not 100% on that.

Any idea what brand they are? Most of the companies have the installation instructions on thier websites.

They are not Westin, but it appears like they probably install about the same. Here is a link to Westin's install instructions maybe that will help you out.

They look like one of the westin style bars. Install is easy, just use westin as a base line.

speed clips in the pinch weld, plates then bolts. Then bolt the bars to the plates and your done.

We install does on a daily basic and there almost all the same. Use the Westin Instruction it will help you alot. Westin, Tech Tubes, Nasta and so much more company all use the same basic brackets.

Can anyone tell me a couple of things? First, who makes frame mounted nerf bars, and secondly, can a set for a short bed, be mounted on a truck with an 8' bed? I was thinking that the extra length would make it easy to reach the middle of the bed. I know that some mount to the cab, and the bed hasn't got the strength to hold a nerf bar. Any ideas?

Dee-Zee makes frame mount nerf-bars. I've got a set. Like them because they sit a little lower but they take some getting used to. Sometimes feels like you're bending them as you step up but that's not the case...

I've had them for about 6 months now and one thing I can't get over is the fear of rotting the frame. 4 bolts per bracket poking holes through it is just unsettling to me.

Anyone have thoughts on this before I grab the welder?

The only problem I have with frame mounted bars is the additional length. A quote I remember from childhood and I can't recall who said it was, give me a lever long enough and I'll move the earth. I don't have any experience with frame mounted bars on ford, I've only messed with them on Chevys and Dodges.

Fresh welds will be just as susceptible to rust as holes. If you go the welding route, I would clean up as much of the frame as I could get too, and recoat it with a non-drying rubberized undercoat, such as permatex HD undercoat. The holes are a little less concerning to me, a cosmoline based anti-corrosive would be all I would use, I think LP3 is the more common kind, but there are others.
