    Folks, I bought the nerf bars without welded-on steps from NFAB and they're dope af. But my girlfriend doesn't like doing pullups to get into my lifted truck. Not to mention my grandmother...

    Does anyone have any advice on welding on a new step straight to the 2" bar? I know a guy with the right welding tools, but I really don't want to do it, since you can't exactly take that off once its on.

    Is there a 2" clamp out there strong enough to hold 300+ lbs, that I could clamp on? I measured the tubes, they're 2" in diameter.

    If I come up with anything I'll let you folks know, meantime if yall have any ideas...


    I found this, but it is designed to fit a 1.75" tube. https://www.superatv.com/nerf-bar-step

    That's a good idea, but I think I'm going for something like the nerf bar step I posted the link to. I've never heard of those, they are pretty cool if you needed to be able to reach in the hood.
