    Hi, I was lurking around autoanything website and bought a set of smoked colored door vents and I saw them selling 'Nerf Bars' for my 1990 Silverado. They say "No drilling" installation but what has been you folks tales of installation if you installed these "Nerf Bars" ? What holds them up and not damaging the rocker panels ?

    Thank you ! Having a h^% of a with the website today !

    the brackets use exhisting bolts, its a solid mount when you are done.

    It really depends on the mfgr.
    I have a pair on my 93 Wrangler that were advertised as no drill, they used sandwich plates on the inside and outside of the frame with long bolts on top of and under the frame to hold them on.
    They were very sturdy when I put them on 10 yrs ago.
    I never had a problem with them until another driver bounced off they side of the Jeep while my daughter was driving down the freeway. Even then they held up well, only a dent in the side tube and 2 broken bolts.
