Side Steps Install Problem
I am installing side steps and am not sure how to get the nut on the 3 center bolts that are in the center of each mount.

The bolts just spin when I turn the nut...

How did you that installed this yourself get the nut and washer tightened on this bolt?

The instructions are pictures only and very hard to understand.

This was just discussed in a previous post. but quickly install the stud in the oval hole install bracket washer and install nut by hand. some of the stud will be exposed hold it gently while tighting it with what ever u have combination wrench etc pattyboy

Re: Side Steps Install Problem
Try to use a needle nose pliers and hold the bolt firmly between the bracket and the body till you get enough thread to hold it from the bottom .were u may grip it more securely and have no fear of stripping the threads since ur pass it with the nut ...its not easy but i have installed 2 sets to date......pattyboy
