Comprised of thick .065 steel, Go Rhino nerf bars are intended to display strength that endures through all conditions. This is evident in their composition. Go Rhino nerf bars are shaped into 3″ steel tubing to handle constant usage, boot scrapes, and off-road elements. Of course, the main job of the 3″ side steps is to enact an easy leg up into the cockpit. Each set of Go Rhino nerf bars features a step pad that is molded into the tubing and is extra wide. The pads also demonstrate a non-slip surface for better traction.

You will receive all of the hardware you need with your order of Sumatra sidesteps and in some cases, re-use your factory bolts. Estimated install time is 30 minutes per Go Rhino 4000 nerf bar.
As for the look, you have three finishes to choose from. Sumatra sidesteps come in black powder coat, classic chrome, and polished steel. The finishes themselves are armed with warranties. Chrome and black powder coat each come with a 5-year warranty while the polished steel Go Rhino step bars are supported by a limited lifetime warranty. One point of emphasis is your treatment of the finish. It is recommended you use a non-abrasive automotive wax on the step bars to protect them. Any kind of polish, soap, or abrasive wax can deteriorate the finish.
