I'm having trouble finding a wheel to wheel nerf bar for my 2003 access cab. It seems they are mostly for the double cabs or newer models. If thats not possible I could go for a low profile w2w running board. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have an '03 AC as well, and I have the Westin step bars that has 2 steps per side.

Westin Part # 23-2510
E-Series; Step Bar; Single Step; Polished Stainless Steel;

Is that what you're looking as there are quite a few manufactures, or do you mean literally "wheel to wheel" that extends just before the rear tire?

Attached is a pic of my truck with the Westin steps, and the install instruction showing the parts.

Yes. Wheel to wheel (w2w) extends past the cab to the rear wheel so you can use the step to gain access to the bed. Thanks.

I have the Nasta stainless and they have held up well. Pic's in my album.
Very nice, but those appear to be the standard nerf bar, not the wheel to wheel style I am looking for. Thanks.

I've never seen a stock retail "wheel-to-wheel" nerf bar that extends past the cab for an AC. I'm sure someone here has fabbed up a custom rock slider though at some point that might work for you. Try a search for "rock slider" in the Gen-1 forum and see what you find.

Remmy700p, Great idea! I found a pair on DeMello offroad, black, bolt on (vs. weld on), but I also kept looking and found Westin makes W2W nerf bars for the Tundra Access cab (they call it an Ext. Cab) in both black and chrome. Model #s are 24-4095 and 24-4090 for anyone else interested.

IMHO, going all the way back to rear wheels is lame, unless they are true sliders. Not sure how you use your truck, but, they will hang up on rock and such when off road. Get the lowest profile steps you can find and don't extend all the way back!!!! I have the Toyota OEM boards and I have been surprised at how well-tucked they are!!!

Wow, someone is getting a bit testie. Just because someone website has them listed, doesnt mean anything. Have you called to verify inventory? Also, I said they were discontinued, meaning Westin no longer makes them. That doesnt mean you cant find them sitting in someone warehouse under dust, just that you have your work cut out for you to locate them, hence the good luck. Keep up the attitude and see how many people keep helping you out. This is a brother hood, grow up.

Remmy700P; Wow, I thought I was being funny about someone calling something I'm looking for lame. I mean, how can you claim to have a humble opinion and be so bold as to call someone lame? NegroTundra seems to have taken it in stride.

Streetracin101; No attitude, just wanted to point out that I had two websites that have them, and indeed, they were very hard to find. 4wheelonline has them on sale right now in black for $350. Its OK w/ me if the boxes are dusty.

Anyway, sorry if I offended anyone. I like this place, have gotten a lot of excellent advice and want to stay in good standing w/ the members.

The reason I'm looking for a W2W step or slider is that I usually have dirtbikes & gear in the bed every weekend. The wheel/tires are oversized (from a Toyota FJ) and reaching into the bed usually means partially jumping onto the side of the bed, balancing on my belly and trying to grab gear. Something that can help me w/ this as well as protect the sides of the truck (weekdays I'm stuck in a tight parking lot = door dings) would really be nice. The Demello rocksliders bolt on (vs. weld on) come in black powdercoat, and don't stick out too far, which I like. I just hope I can easily get a solid footing on them to get in the bed. Too bad they are also the most money at $600, which is more than I wanted to spend. I'll keep looking a little while longer.

I wasn't calling you lame. And now that I (we) understand what you need them for, it is justifiable. The reason I said they were lame is because my buddy has a set on his dodge and the extra length really gets in the way when were back in the sh*t, hangs up more than one would realize. Good luck on your search, and post pics.

Johnny5; The W2W bars in the classified is for a Double Cab & I have an Access Cab. AC & DC don't mix! Thanks for the effort.
