ICI is a leader in the automotive aftermarket accessories industry. ICI strive to have the best products while keeping costs low. ICI is constantly looking for ways to improve, hence the name Innovative Creations. ICI's engineers have improved the design of many popular aftermarket accessories to make them more practical and durable. For example, ICI was the first manufacturer to offer a polished stainless steel nerf bar. This allows ICI customers to get the look of chrome, but in a more affordable, durable and environmentally friendly manner.
The majority of ICI products are made in the U.S.A. ICI does employ some global manufacturing with certain products being made overseas. All products are designed and tested in the U.S.A.
Cab length side bars run from just behind the front wheel, to the end of the truck cab. Wheel to wheel side bars are slightly longer, running all the way from the front wheel to the back wheel. There is no difference in performance, it is simply an aesthetic choice.
The drop step style sits a full 3" lower than the traditional nerf bar, making it even easier to get into your truck or SUV. This is especially useful for people with small children or limited mobility.
A good rule of thumb is to care for and maintain your aftermarket accessories the same way you care for your vehicles paint.
No, ICI uses a carbon steel for all of ICI side step product brackets. Carbon steel is more flexible than stainless steel, making the brackets more durable and practical for real world use.
ICI uses a two-step "e-coating" process on ICI entire line of black finish step up products and brackets. The surfaces are first primed with an e-coat, followed by a powder coated in a textured #20 black finish. The two-step process is more resistant to damage and fading than the standard one step powder coat process.
ICI is expanding current offering of Magnum Bumpers. ICI are in the process of designing non-winch bumpers for all make and model light duty trucks. Such examples include the 2014 Chevy Silverado light duty, the 2009-2014 Ford F-150 Ecoboost, and the 2009-2013 Dodge Ram trucks.
Depending on the vehicle application, a Magnum Bumper can weigh between 125 to 175 pounds. For this reason, ICI recommend a two-person installation for all bumpers.
E-coating is the original process developed by ICI engineers to apply a black finish to Magnum bumpers and side bars. This two-step process has proven to be longer-lasting than a standard black powder coat.
