Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2015
Be aware. I bought this set for my 2015 RAM 1500 Laramie Short Bed and the bracket kit which attach the bars was incompatible with my truck.

After getting in touch with multiple vendors and Lund themselves, it appears that Ram made a 2015 mid-year change to their 1500 trucks. They now come equipped with a new side impact bracket that interferes with the installation of many Nerf Bars & Running Boards. This bracket is located on the driver side front mounting location and blocks access to the large slot where many Nerf Bar & Running Board brackets are attached.

As it turns out, my truck was likely manufactured after this "cutover" date. My vehicle sticker says MFR date of July 2015. This is likely a universal fit issue, not so much Lund in particular.

Below is what the rep from Lund responded when I told them what I had found:
"You are correct there’s a change on the 2015 Ram; please contact Amazon to return the product and have credit issued. We are waiting on a release date for the new brackets; unfortunately I don’t have an ETA as of now. My apologies, please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you."

I've heard from other vendors that the drop date for new hardware is in the December time frame. Hope this helps people avoid a big hassle which I just went through. I mention it in this much detail because these boxes are large (7.5ft tall) and heavy (50-60lbs). Amazon sent me a second thinking that it was a packaging error! To their credit they were quick to initiate pick up returns for both.

So be wary, check the underbody driver side for this bracket interference before you purchase....................
