Hey, guys.

It's Sara from extremeterrain.com.

And today, we have a review and install of the RedRock 4x4 3-Inch Round Curved Side Step

Bars, fitting your '07 through '18 Two-Door Jeep Wrangler JKs.

These steps feature a 3-inch tubular stainless steel construction with a textured black powder

coat finish.

They also include a non-slip pad for entry into your Jeep in all kinds of weather.

So if you take your Jeep off-roading frequently or if you like some more aggressive trails,

these might not be the right choice for you.

These don't offer as much protection as a rock slider would and they're gonna decrease

your ground clearance as well.

However, if you prefer more mild trails or if you're just looking to add some side steps

your Jeep, especially if it's lifted, these are an excellent choice.

Coming in at around $140, these are a budget-friendly way to add some function and style to your

Jeep.

I'm giving this install a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter.

It can be done in approximately two hours and features a direct bolt-up installation.

All right, with that said, let's jump right into our install.

This install, you will need a 10-millimeter wrench, the included Allen key, an extension,

a 13-millimeter socket, and an impact gun.

All right, so we're going to attach our brackets to the bottom of our Jeep.

Make sure that you're grabbing the proper one.

They should all be stamped for the side of the Jeep you're working on.

We're on the driver currently, an F for the front bracket.

Line it up with the threaded hole.

If you don't see your threaded hole in here, there's an included nut plate that you can

use.

But since ours has the threaded hole, we're gonna grab our hardware and thread it in.

We're just gonna thread this in loosely for now so that we can get the rest of our bolts

in.

Next up, grab your smallest hardware and line it up with the holes on the pinch weld to

the holes on the bracket.

And your bracket should be sitting behind this pinch weld.

Make sure that you get a washer on either side.

With the included Allen key and a 10-millimeter wrench, we're gonna tighten these down.

Next up, grab a 13-millimeter socket and tighten down the bolt that goes to the bottom of the

Jeep.

You may need an extension here.

Line up your second bracket.

Again, make sure that it's stamped with the proper side and back or R for rear.

Grab your hardware and thread it into the bottom of your Jeep.

We're gonna tighten this down a little bit.

For now, to hold it in place but leave it loose so that we can get the rest of our bolt

in.

Grab your smallest hardware and get it through your pinch weld into the back of your bracket.

Grab the included Allen key and a 10-millimeter wrench and tighten this down.

Grab your 13-millimeter socket and tighten down the bolt going into the bottom of your

Jeep.

Line up and get your side step in place.

Line up the holes on your side step with the holes on the bracket.

If these don't look like they're aligned, loosen up the bolts in our last step so you

have some more space to align them.

Once the bolts are in, grab your 13-millimeter socket and tighten them down.

Grab the bolts for the front bracket and get them lined up.

Grab your 13-millimeter socket and tighten these down.

All right, guys, that's gonna do it for the review and install of our RedRock 4x4 Side

Steps.

Remember for all things Jeep, keep it at extremeterrain.com.
