Let's see if I can explain this without a pic.. LOL
Here is the problem. I have a Dak with Westin brand stainless steel, tubular, side steps. The plastic that is mounted to the top(where ya put your foot) has warped and come off the stainless steel. Looks like crap!! Wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and what type of adhesives may work to get the plastic re-attached to the steel. I thought about Gorilla glue, seems to work for a lot of different things.....any suggestions out there?? Thx in advance....."Mopar or No Car"!!!!

I would think that super glue would work pretty well. How were they connected before? Was it some sort of adhesive or were they mounted some other way? I've had the Westin step bars on mine for about a year but haven't had this problem so I'm not really sure.

Gentleman,
Thx for the info, I'll give 'em a call tomorrow.

GenIII,
Hey, looks like there was some sort of adhesive, also the 'ole plastic "male" end which is inserted into the "female" end....just to stay politically correct. LOL
I think part of the problem is I live in the valley of California, we go through some major climate changes from day to night. The adhesive Westin used I guess couldn't handle it.
Cheers!!
