    Default side steps.

    On a scale form 1 to 10 how diffacult is it to install a set of nfab wheel to wheel side steps. Any advice or know how would be a great help if you have or have seen it done.

    I took some off of my 08 silverado and i gotta say it was pretty simple to take them off. You will need a extra body to hold it up there while you bolt it on but thats about it.
    If you find yourself slipping,.....tie a knot.....hold on tight

    Welcome to the club!

    What year truck do you have, the reason I ask is because I have an 05' and when I called about those steps they told me there was minimal welding required. The Ford and Dodge bolted on, but the Chevy one's for model years 03-07' Classic required welding which is why I didn't buy them.

    Thats a good point, my 08 didn't require any welding so it was a easy bolt on. If you have a older model you may have to weld like TRPLXL2 so wisely said
