CJ5 Nerf Bars

I am having trouble with my nerf bars having the foot step part way to far forward. has anyone else had this problem and went with a different type than Omix-ada bars?

I just installed my nerf bars and from the pictures I've seen, I think it is what it is... this is my set... they do fit a little further forward than I would like, but look on the bright side, it makes it easy to clean the windshield!

Those were on my CJ5 when I bought it. I took the plastic out, and installed the bars upside down, on the opposite sides of the Jeep.

Of course, I didn't buy the bars new, either...

Commadore 64,
By your photos I see that you have a serious problem... your shop floor is way too clean. Thanks for the good photos as I have wondered as to how those nerf bars would attach and the look I would have. God bless.

Yeah Jon... I'm starting to think that is why I can't finish this project... I keep cleaning the shop!! When I installed those bars, I ended up just placing them on top of the spring perch mount on the frame. That seemed to line them up as good as anything else.
