I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This set is for a four door JK, but they're also available for a two door, so no matter what body style your jeep is, Barricade has you covered. These are for those of you who want to side step to help you get in and out of your lifted or stock height JK, but aren't really into the traditional round, tubular side step look. This is going to give you a much more modern tough look, and a really large and easy-to-use step. It's important to remember that no matter how tough these look, they are side steps and not side armor. The way that these mount, means that they're not designed to take a beating on the trail like side armor does. These are designed to be a really well-built, tough-looking side step. These are a really well-built side steps. They're a heavy weight, the welds look nice, and they're finished off with this black, texture powder-coat finish. So whether your jeep is otherwise stock, or you have a bunch of other aftermarket parts on it, these are going to match and look good. One of my favorite parts about this side step is that it has a large stepping platform, and it has these holes in it, which not only add style, but can add some grip in wet or muddy conditions. The side steps are designed to mount on the jeep using the factory hardware. It is important to remember that these occupy the same space as other side steps, or even factory Rubi Rails. So if you have anything else installed, you will have to remove it to get these bolted into place. Now like I said, these are designed to be completely bolt-on, and they bolt onto the stock body mounts of the jeep. And that is why these are side steps and not side armor. The way that these mount, mean that they're plenty strong for stepping, but if you try to drop the whole weight of the jeep onto a rock on one of these, they are going to move and bend. So again, these are really nice side steps, but not side armor. Like I said, these are designed to be completely bolt-on, so they'll install without the need to drill or cut anything. The first step in the installation is to remove the large body mount bolts and washers from the jeep. You don't use those for installation, but you will have to get them out of the way to get those bolted up. After that, you can remove the two smaller bolts from each one of the jeep's body mounts and put the step into place, replacing that hardware. Once you have those torqued down, you can replace the larger body mount bolts and washers, and torque those as well. Like I said, these steps are really heavyweight, so it'll definitely help to have an extra set of hands around for the installation. If you don't have a friend available, you can use a floor jack or some jack stands. The installation should take about two hours and the only tools you'll need are a couple different size sockets. So these are going to be a little bit more expensive than your traditional round tubular side steps, but there's a reason for that that. With these, you get a lot more. So if you have the budget, and you're after that tougher look, I think these are a good value for the dollar. So if you're looking for a side step to help get in and out of your jeep, but you don't have a need for heavy-duty side armor, I think these are a nice option. They're well built, they look good, they install easily, and they do it all at a fair price. So that's my review of the Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

So far I'm really loving these. I spent weeks searching and researched other styles and models but coming back to these. I had a lot of the concerns as most people as I noticed in reviews and questions. Here are a few of the concerns I had before installing and figured out after installation. If you have the Rubicon rails on your Rubicon or Willy's Edition the rails need to come off...super easy. Going to sell them, they retail for over 400 bucks :) The Rocker steps are a breeze to install...have a torque wrench ready and set it to 40lbs. They made it easier for my wife and myself to climb in (her on the short side and myself average height). The cut aways where you step are big enough to get foot on...I step a bit behind the cut aways. Getting out is a bit awkward at first, used to it now. Lots of traction! Even on rainy days, plenty of no slip grip! The look awesome...they match the flow of the fenders!Helpful (0)

These are what I’ve been waiting for. I have wanted to install running boards since I bought my Jeep, just couldn’t find anything that I really liked. These look great and were a breeze to install.Helpful (1)

Nice Options for Rails
I purchased these steps for the different look and the sturdiness that they have! Very easy install and have not only dressed up the Jeep but have made it a lot easier to get in and put the top back on as the depth of the rails are bigger than most!Helpful (1)

I like them
Installation was a piece of cake. Fit is perfect. They look great. One issue on installation is that it is difficult to get a socket into one of the spaces to get on one of the bolts. another issue is that the cutout in the middle of the step is right where i want to step to get into my Jeep. I think I'll get used to that. It's just different from my previous steps. Overall i am very pleased with them.Helpful (1)

Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps
These steps were exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something that I could use for a step to get gear out of the roof rack, and as a foot rest when driving with the doors off. I especially like the recess in these steps that allow a space for your leg when you want to get in and out of the Jeep without using them. I was especially impressed with the packaging. They survived shipping without a scratch!! Great buy!!Helpful (1)

Easy to install, just 4 bolts each side. The steps seem pretty durable and mounting location I imagine adds to the strength.Helpful (3)

A Nice Addition
Arrived quickly and was easy to install. Added to appearance and ease of entry. It is also heavy enough that I expect it will provide some body damage protection. As has been noted, there is a right and left side, not included in the instructions. Put it into place and check for parallel fit between step and body before securing.Helpful (3)

Can you advise the length and weight of the 2-door rocker steps? Thank you
The length is 4'5", the width is 8" at the widest point and 4.5" at the shortest point. The shipping weight is 52.91lbs.
Good morning, Will these require the use of a torque wrench, and if so what pounds during installation? Thank you in advance! Rob ºlllllllº 2017 JK Wrangler 2dr Willy’s edition
Can you be more specific on how these install with 2018 Jeep Willy's Rubicon's OEM rock sliders? I'm going off the question that is below and on your web page but i'm trying to install them now and i am wondering i have received the wrong ones. It seems that the OEM rock sliders are to tall and will not allow them to attach to the factory mounts. Hi; I have a Willy 2 doors and it came with the Rubicon's OEM rock sliders. Would it fit without removing the rock sliders? Thank you Thank you for your question! These will not interfere with the mounting points of the Rubi Rails since these mount to the frame. However, these do hug the body very close so it may be a tight fit.
These will require removal of the factory rubicon rails to fit.
Will these steps help the accessibility into my Jeep Wrangler 2-Door JK with a 4" Pro Comp lift kit ?
The Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps can be used as an easier way to get into your Jeep after lifting it.
ANyone take these off road and roughed them up a little?
The Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps have been taking off road before. You can check out our customer photos and customer review for reference!

Hello! The Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps will work with factory mud flaps.
I fixed it. Weatherstrip seal and rubber washers!
You should not have any issues with the rear mudflaps, however you may run into issues with the fronts.
Hello, to be able to install these steps you would have to remove the Rubicon Rails.
