3″ Round Side Bars
With a vehicle-specific fit for hundreds of applications
Side bars on your truck or SUV are not just there to make it look pretty. Each ARIES 3″ round side bar provides a solid place to plant your foot with custom, non-skid step pads and high-strength carbon steel mounting brackets. Each side bar is made vehicle-specific to perfectly accent the contours of your vehicle. We offer our 3″ round side bars in two finish options, and both are backed by warranty to give you peace of mind.
ARIES 3″ round side bars are made from 3″ diameter heavy-wall tubing to provide sturdy footing. We offer two material options: stainless steel and carbon steel. Our stainless steel 3″ side bars are high in nickel content, making them extremely resilient to rust and ready to face the off-road elements. The 304 stainless comes with a polished finish and adds a lasting shine to your truck. We also offer carbon steel 3″ side bars, giving you a high-strength side bar option. These carbon steel side bars are put through an E-coat process before receiving a black powder coat finish, giving them the tough skin they need to resist peeling, chipping and corrosion.
Vehicle-specific, custom fit
ARIES 3″ round side bars don’t stop at quality construction. We make each of our side bars for a specific vehicle make and model, designing them with custom bends and custom-placed step pads for the best possible fit. This means that whatever truck, SUV or crossover you drive, ARIES 3″ side bars are made to match. They mount with strong, vehicle-specific carbon steel brackets that use pre-existing factory holes in the frame to install faster and eliminate the need for drilling. The custom step pads are positioned on each side bar for optimum functionality with the layout of your vehicle’s doors and are textured to resist slips, even when wet. The step pads are molded from long-lasting polypropylene and cover a wide portion of the rail for a more comfortable step.
4″ Oval Side Bars
With seamlessly blended ends for a unique, finished look
When you start and end your day turning the ignition of your truck, unreliable footing is not an option. You need step bars that can take a beating and provide comfortable footing, all while looking good mounted on your truck. ARIES 4″ oval side bars are sleek, strong and custom-fitted to be a highly functional extension of your ride. For each make and model, they are made vehicle-specific, providing a comfortable step and easier installation. They come with raised step pads, blended end caps for a finished look and are made in two finish options, including black powder coat carbon steel and polished stainless steel. All ARIES 4″ oval side bars are sold in pairs and come with carbon steel mounting brackets for a complete installation.
Wheel-to-wheel is a unique option of our 4″ oval side bars. These side bars are fitted with an extra step pad and are made to span the length of your truck’s wheelbase for utility purposes and an enhanced appearance. The extended step of our wheel-to-wheel side bars allows for a sturdy foothold and easy access to the truck bed. We offer 4″ oval wheel-to-wheel side bars on select models for regular cab pickup trucks and others.
ARIES 4″ oval side bars are made with heavy-wall 4″ diameter tubing and feature a sleek, elliptical design. They come with original-equipment-style 20° bends (older models may vary) and blended end caps to give them a unique finished appearance. The blended ends offer a refined look compared to the more common plastic end caps of other side bars, and they provide a superior barrier against rust and grime. To allow you to choose the look that best complements your vehicle, we make ARIES 4″ oval side bars in two finish options: stainless steel and black carbon steel. Our stainless steel side bars are made with a true 304 stainless, being high in nickel content to resist rust and sporting a mirror-like polished finish. Our carbon steel side bars are high-strength and feature a semi-gloss black powder coat finish for excellent protection against scratches, chipping and rust.
Installation of ARIES 4″ oval side bars is quick and easy with custom-fitted mounting brackets and vehicle-specific contours. The brackets are constructed from strong carbon steel and use pre-existing holes in the frame to mount to the vehicle with no drilling required. Each 4″ oval side bar is made to contour to a specific make and model to further the ease of installation and optimize the side bar’s functionality. They are also equipped with custom step pads, positioned in vehicle-specific locations, to complement the layout of your truck’s doors.
Raised step pads
The step pads of ARIES 4″ oval side bars are raised and textured, offering a wide, flat stepping surface. They feature polypropylene construction to resist cracking over time, and because the step pads are textured, they are highly resistant to slips and skids, even when wet. To add an extra element of class to our oval sides, we also fit each step pad with a stainless steel ARIES insignia.
