Platinum 4" Oval Tube Step Bar - 2011-12 Ford Explorer Available Now!

April 17, 2012 Westin Automotive
Westin has developed the 2011-12 Ford Explorer application for Platinum 4" Oval Tube Step Bars. This is a unique offering in that the 21-Series Platinum 4" Oval Tube Step Bar, a beefy and sturdy step design, was slated for offering reserved to trucks and vehicles such as Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon. 

2012 Ford Explorer with Westin Platinum 4" Oval Step Bars

Due to popular demand, the Ford Explorer application was selected to be one of the first SUV applications designed for this product. It is the first Ford SUV offered, but is in good company with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. 

Platinum 4" Oval Tube Step Bar (21-Series) Black w/ 30 degree bends at ends
In addition to this being a unique vehicle offering, Westin engineers have taken careful consideration in the design of the step, which typically features a 90 degree mandrel bend at both ends of the bar. Westin has focused on rocker panel mounting of a cradled step with 30 degree bends at both ends.

Applications come complete with vehicle specific mounting kit, available in black or polished finish and has the widest step area offered.
