ARIES 3" side bars are more than a fancy decal for your truck, Jeep or SUV. They are a confident first step on each new adventure. They are made from steel and come in 304 polished stainless steel or semi-gloss black powder-coated carbon steel. Our 304 stainless steel is a true stainless with high nickel content, offering better corrosion resistance and a long-lasting finish. To give our carbon steel side bars an added edge, each unit goes through an E-coat process, before receiving its black powder coat, to strengthen and protect the final finish against peeling, chipping and scratching. ARIES 3" round side bars come with carbon steel brackets and non-skid step pads. The mounting brackets are strong and custom-designed for specific makes and models to allow the side bars to contour to the lines of your vehicle. They offer easy installation and the strength necessary to provide sound footing. The ARIES 3" round side bar also comes with non-skid step pads made of polypropylene. These wide step pads feature a textured pattern and cover a wide portion of the tube to be more comfortable and safer.
