Hello all,

There used to be an ad on this site for this item in polished stainless. I went to buy one and no more ad. Can anybody help me on this one ?? Where to get one ??:confused:

Thanks

Hey Fishdist. Yes I can help. I ordered one for my 08 Sunburst orange pearl R/T just yesterday. Try Truck Candy .com or call and ask for Bryon Hibbets @ 866 670 0055 .As of yesterday he had 6 Westin Bull Bars with skid plate after my order. The cost was $ 350.73 including freight .It was my first order with them but they seemed like stand up people. Tell him Harry from Florida gave you the info. I did 9 other mods on my Nitro since getting it last week. If you have trouble locating stuff maybe I can help ,just rattle my cage. Good Luck.

Flimsy Bull Bar mount ?

I've got a big trailer hitch sticking out there. If they hit they will regret.

Sounds like a plan Fish :D . I just got notice of the intended delivery tomorrow of my Bull Bar. When I crawled under the Nitro to eyeball where I thought it may attach ,I was disappointed to see what appears to be light weight metal mounting .I can't see any other location to mount this Bar. I sure hope I'm wrong .I'll let you know what I see when it arrives.:eek:

Roadie, Mine arrived today. Being in Calif, have to also buy the front license plate relocate bracket. My plant maintenance techs will be installing mine pretty soon. I will relay your remarks about the possible flimsy mounting. The Westin product is pretty heavy duty stuff and looks great. More later.

More: It's on and looks great. I will get a pic together when I get time. The unit is pretty flexy but I'll drive it a bit to see if it's a problem before doing any mods. Since I won't be using aux lights, the license plate relocate bracket is not needed after all. I will return it when it shows up.

On to the next project.

Ditto Fish. I installed mine this morning. I've read that most found their bar flexing. Actually I found mine to be the opposite. It's not as ridged as if it were bolted to a box frame install.But it was better than I expected when I first saw the light metal bolting area. The single bolt ,bolt plate, is crucial to getting the bar secure .I think some
nitro owners decided to skip that portion of the install I found it to be a bitch getting it in place. I was flat on the garage floor without benifit of ramps or lift. But it was much more difficult than the Westin Nerf Bars .I did order KC chrome ,long range , 6 " round lights.:D

Roadie,

Yeh, my tech was under the car for quite a while, too. I'm too old for that kind of stuff, might skin a knuckle or something. LOL

I'm going to go with the Silvania Silverstar replacement lights that McNabb mentions in here somewhere, that way no more light installs needed. The Hi-Po lights do look cool though.

My nerf bars have been ordered a month but still no show. Take care, pal.

Fish I put those Silverstars into my Element .I agree they appear to be whiter but vision is not that much improved.A word to the wise ,use latex gloves when you install those silverstars. Leaving your body oils on them greatly reduce their life span. The reason I'm installing driving lights on the Hog Bar is to get better night vision without going to the poor house. And about that age thing ? I bet I have underwear older than you. :D
