Has anyone heard of Raptor series nerf bars. Wandering if they are a quilty product. I'm considering for my Ext Cab 1500 z71. I like the looks of them but no reviews. Or does anyone have suggestions?

I've got them for my NBS CC Silverado and LOVE them. Much cheaper than the GM boards, and IMO they look better. The boards are extremely high quality...my only complaint I guess is the mounting brackets are already peeling a little....I need to sand them and then line-x them to solve the problem for good before they start rusting.

thanks for the info. They are sharp. Question- Do you have the cab length or wheel to wheel?

They are great looking bars, much cheaper than the Westin bars. I also had a set of the Hunter Engineering SS bars I picked up on Ebay and they were great also and were cheaper than the Raptors even.

Just put these on last week and I think they look great. I also had them fat guy tested by a guy at work. Couldn't beat the price and I've never seen bars that have welded on end plugs like these. I'm going to have to put some undercoat on the brackets though before they rust.

the design of raptor series broadens the step area that maximizes footing capacity and vertical clearance. Setting a new industry standard with a 10 warranty, these oval tubes are vehicle specific, no drill and install in about 30 minutes.each kit comes with 2 oval tubes, brackets, and all the hardware necessary for installation in one package.

I have the 4" cab length Raptor's on my truck. Install was pretty easy and they look great.

I have had a set of the 4" ovals on my truck since July. So far they are holding up well...no dings or dulling. Install took about 30 minutes.

I put the raptor 4 inch wheel to wheel on.
They look good but are already scratched up from people not stepping on the pads, the pads are not quite lined up with the doors.
when you go to get out one foot is just to the left of the pad.

anyone know what I need to polish them out?

The same problem happened with my dad's also. I've been meaning to work on polishing them up but haven't yet.
