    Well the other day, I was on the web looking a nerf bars, and all the sudden I had an idea, that it would be really cool if i bought some extended cab nerf bars, so that they will cover most of the bottom of the trucks rockers. I am not doing this for the slider bars the some you had, but mainly to be different you know what i mean. I think it would look really sweet! So how do these bars mount to the frame? I am talking about mounting them on my blazer.

    I wouldn't go with Smittybilts unless your not going to use them offroad much. They're kinda flimsy. They are mainly for show I think. I bought a pair a while ago. Here they are.

    Are they actually bent or is that something funky w/ the photo.. how do they attach to the truck. I'm looking for some that attach to the frame or body mounts... not just the sheetmetal of the truck.

    Yes, they are bent. That was my point about them being for show. Maybe I wasn't clear on that one. Mine attach to the body mounts. I would recommend frame mounted nerf bars if you do it. They are a little stronger. If I did it again I would just make some rock sliders for a $100 cheaper.
