    I am getting ready to install the predators from EBay but it came with no hardware or instructions , so I went to the dealer and got the hardware kit it also came with no instructions.My question is does anyone know where the 3 thinner D shape washers should go compare to the thicker full circle ones. Thanks 4F8DA59F-56CD-4E84-B646-0F09D416D6BE.jpg

    I had to buy my own hardware when I got my stealth black running boards and I didn’t use a d washer. I used 6 regular washers and 6 lock washers. Call the dealer and see what they say.

    That is the incorrect hardware package. The bolts look too short and the washers don't match.

    Lookup Part# PT925-35170-HK

    Edit: Updated part number, originally incorrect.

    I’m going to resurrect this thread. I can’t seem to find a straight answer.

    I looked at the instructions that have been posted and the instructions talk about washers on the front only. I got some predator steps for my wife and the bolt package has washers on every single bolt. Just install them as is?

    i dont know about any of that but i went out and bought stainless bolts and washers for my predator steps. i noticed after just a few months the bolts that came with the steps were looking really rough already
    in case anyone is interested, they were M8-1.25x30mm hex bolts and i got 5/16 medium split lock washers. both stainless steel

    That’s good to know.

    This is what came with mine.

    I bought mine with them already installed and took them off to get sliders.

    Mine had 12 washers/bolts (6 per side)
