    Just ordered Smittybuilt Nerf Steps for my truck. Would you use threadlocker on the bolts used to install it?

    Why or why not? Has anyone done this and how has it worked out?

    Just thinking it could keep them from vibrating out on the highway or something, but then again maybe it could make them hard to remove if they get damaged...


    Thank you.

    I don't think it's needed. I didn't and they stayed on for 4 years (eventually got sliders)

    My Go Rhino's came with lock washers,which I would use over threadlocker in cse you did ever want to take a damaged one off.
