I think I have the same nerf bars on my 05. The plastic step pads have pulled loose & won't snap down into place any more. The plastic pins are basically trashed. You can see in this picture where the rear piece is pulling up in the middle. I'd be interested in hearing how anyone else has fixed this.

I bet you could use 3M double sided tape (VHB) to secure those step pads. The tape has a red backing paper to it. As far as aftemarket replacement pads I have never seen them. Best bet would be a junk yard or online discount dealer or maybe EBay.

I wish it was so simple. There is some space between the bottom of the plastic step pad & the metal cavity, probably close to an inch or so. I'm tempted to drill it all the way thru & use a carriage bolt or something.

I'm going to be in the same boat after I get my steps powdercoated.  The step pads will need to be removed and I already have a broken tab on one or two of them.

Thank you all for responding. I'm not familiar with Spyder...is that a name brand? Got any pics?

here you go - My 5'3" beautiful young bride loves these as it was hard to step up into the truck for her. (I just sit down into the truck and never use them.)

Thanks, OK I like those. I did manage to find some used step pads. But at $100 each ...and given the likleyhood they'll break I think I'm just going to R&R. I like the black...chrome inevitably just rusts...

Yea, I'm tempted to replace mine too. Just thought there might be a simple solution out there to repair the stock nerf bars.

with as many AV's out there you'd think there'd be some. I'm also considering looking at the suburban...maybe they are close enough.
