Aries 4" Nerf Bars

For anyone with the Aries nerf bars, how much ground clearance did you lose after installing these?

Re: Aries 4" Nerf Bars

I put these on my 2014 JGC Limited when new.....about 18 months ago. Very happy with them overall. I don't think you lose any meaningful amount of ground clearance based upon how they mount. They stick out a little further from the side of the rocker than I think I would prefer, however. But, my sister in law's Mopar steps of a similar design fit too snugly against the rockers, so it's a matter of taste. At least mine you can use as a real step. Hers, not so much. And, it's easy to wash all around these nerf bars and the (plastic) rocker behind them. You can't get a sponge between her bars and the rocker. These were much less expensive than the Mopars is what attracted me initially. I mounted them myself in about 45 minutes per side, no drilling though you do have to take some existing bolts loose to reuse them. My only complaint would be that the driver step pad needs to be longer or further back.....your foot wants to hit just behind the step pad on the stainless steel. This is a. slippery and b. has gotten very scratched up from 18 months and 50,000 miles of use. if you could open the door all the way maybe this wouldn't happen, but you can't do that in most parking lots.

Hey -

I have a set of Aries Black 4"oval sidebars for sale - They were installed and then un-installed the same day. I was torn between chrome and black, ordered the black ones and was too impatient - It's bugging me, so I going to sell them and get the chrome!

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011 - 2015 - 4" Aries Black Oval Side bars

My loss is someones gain!

I'm in Brooklyn NY - I could possibly ship too.

Thanks. Sam

Re: Aries 4" Nerf Bars

I've looked and the pics don't give a great representation of what they look like mounted up. I'll keep looking.

Re: Aries 4" Nerf Bars

I was/am looking at getting these for my '15 HA too.

This was the reply from Aries when I contacted them:
