B2 Nerf Bars

We normally make aircraft parts but my boss has a Teryx and we decided to have some fun and make a few things for it. Just wanted to get some feedback and see what you guys thought.

No drilling, uses existing OEM mounting points.

I wish we could make them cheaper.
They are made out 1.5 inch OD cold roll steel and heavy duty mounts. The wall thickness is thick as well to prevent dents. In the video you can see the whole unit is pushing all its weight on the rocks. Not one dent in the tubing. We also made it mount up so if you wanted to put any brand skid plates on you could with no interference. On the prototypes we had the first time we did not wrap the tubing around in the front. The bars were catching on some rocks and bushes so that’s why they are smooth front and back, no more problems there.. For fun we took two car jacks, slipped them under each rail and jacked the unit up. Left it up all day in the back of the shop, nothing moved.

So wile were field testing the nerf bars we get a gnarly side puncture. No fix a flat on this one. So we made a spare tire rack. Yeap, were slow so the boss has us make one up.

With the tire mounted.

Uses side existing side mounts, stock OEM tie down loops bolt on top of the spare tire rack mount. The original one was tested with and without base bolted to the bed. Without it mounted down we got a little vibration but when bolted to the bed there is no vibration. We used the same metric 1.25 pitch studs and nuts on the spare tire mount as the OEM lugs and nuts. This way we only had to carry one wrench for both.

Then we field tested and found the best location of the actual tire itself. The first prototype the tire was higher but it compromised your view backing up in tricky spots. So, we lowered the tire but left enough room in case someone wanted much larger diameter tires. We also took into account loosing bed space, so we angled the tire to maximize bed space.

We just finished the bed extender today. It works nice with the spare tire mount.
Most of the ones we looked at bounced up and down when you drove over choppy stuff. We didn’t want to hold it down with a strap because the tailgate moves with most bed extenders we saw. Also, we wanted light weight and strong. We made one that bolts down and does not allow any movement when in use. We used rubber stops against the tail gait stops.
Material is 6061 T6 Aluminum. This also has heavy duty brackets.

I bought the FST's and had them modded to be very similar. So far working GREAT.

Nice job on these, I can see you selling a lot of them if you decide to sell them.

It would be 330 for a set and all the hardware. I don't know how much it would cost to ship them. They are oversized for sure.

That is a good deal if they are. My FST's cost I think 340 and another 250 to have modded to do exactly what these seem to be doing. I have posted photos of what we had to do to mine.
