OEM Side Bar Brackets

Hi everyone,

I recently acquired some side bars/running boards of CraigsList for my Ford Ranger XLT. They are all black and look OEM. I had no problem bolting the rear section on the bars/boards but the front (2x) bolts have no where to bolt to. There are two holes where I can put the bolts through but no thread to bolt into. I'm guessing these would have came with some brackets of some sort. Can anyone lead me to the right direction in what I need to do to make these side bars fit?

Side bars/running boards


Thanks!

There should be a separate bracket with two studs/bolts attached to it that you slide up into the cab and then they drop down to bolt that bracket on. Hard to explain but I can likely get you a pic later tonight if you want!

Sure, but it seems I'm missing that part. Is there any way I could order it separately?

If not, I'm just going to end up welding it on!

You'll need to order them from Ford--I had a couple of extra sets a while back, but I sold them on here. I'll see if I can get a pic for you.
Found it.

Unfortunately, I don't have the part numbers any more. You'll need left and right sides; when I ordered mine from my local dealer, I had to buy 5 of each-they wouldn't break the master pack.

Thanks guys for the help. Btw, any idea how much the dealership is charging for these brackets?

Hopefully they aren't to expensive.

I took my running bars off and I think I still have those brackets. If I can find them, they are yours for the shipping if interested.

New guy here digging up an old thread. How do you remove these brackets? I have removed the step/nerf bars and want to sell them. They are removed, but I have to get these front brackets off the truck. How do you remove it? From up top inside the cab, or from below?

If it matters, truck is 2011 Ranger XLT 4-door extended Cab 2x4

Thanks

take them off from underneath, you have to push them or pull them through the wider hole closer to the front tire

Thanks, you are exactly correct. Took the step bars off in the dark maybe a week plus ago. Got a look in the light this eve after posting my question. And it was easy as can be. Thanks for your response, I appreciate it.

I have a complete set of step / nerf bars for sale in THIS AD IN CLASSIFIEDS.

A forum member here messaged me and asked me to trace or measure up these front brackets before I sell them, as he is missing them. I made CAD drawings of them, hope this helps some others. They are in PDF format, located HERE.

Brackets as removed are not "flat". I think they are flat until they are installed. So you might notice in some pictures they look "dished". I believe the large nuts distort the steel of the bracket once they are installed.

Note... if you buy my step/nerf bars, all brackets and all hardware is included! You won't have to make your brackets, as you get it all!

Mark

Hi guys, it was me that had emailed Mark asking if he could be so nice as to trace/draw on paper with a scale next to it, the brackets for me. Man, this is awesome, 1:1 scale cad drawings in PDF format.... printed out right to scale! Looks like I have a personal project for our mechanic here at work today.. slow on the weekends, so he will fab these up for me in no time.

Thanks again Mark, this was perfect.

Not to bump a old thread but is your ranger an extended cab? I noticed that these running boards are longer than what I have seen. And they are a little differently shaped. The ones I've seen from ford for the older rangers are normally round.

Reason I ask is because I'm trying to find a pair for a standard cab.

Thanks,
-Nigel

those are actually the super cab running boards, the extended cab have different back brackets and those running boards are the newer 2001 and up boards.
