- How to Install Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK 4 Door) on your Jeep Wrangler
$379.99 (pair)FREE Shipping
Hey, guys. It's Sara from extremeterrain.com. And today, we have a review and install of the Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps, fitting your '07 through '18 four-door Jeep Wrangler JKs. These steps feature a tubular steel construction with a textured black powder coat finish. They also include this plate steel step on top which gives your Jeep that rugged appearance. Although these steps are stronger than some other options, it's important to remember that these will not provide as much protection as rock sliders. So if you are an avid off-roader these might not be the option for you. However, if you're looking for a tough step that is also tough-looking, these are definitely gonna get the job done. Coming in at around $380, these are low to middle of the road price-wise. However, for your money, you're getting a durable step that it's sure to stand out. I'm giving this install a one out of three rentals on the difficulty meter. It does feature a direct bolt-up installation using your existing hardware. Now I will note that if you have Rubi rails, you will need to remove them in order to install this but it can be done in approximately two hours with the help of a friend. All right, let's hop right into our install. For this install, you will need a 3/8 drive ratchet, 16-millimeter deep socket and an optional but helpful tool is an impact gun. The first step in your install is to remove the two nuts on either side of the body bolt using a 16-millimeter socket. Next, we'll line up our step. You may want a friend for this one because it's quite heavy. Make sure you're sliding the step over top of your body bolts and then clearing each stud. Thread your nuts over these studs to hold in our step. Grab your 16-millimeter socket and tighten these down. All right, guys, that's gonna do it for the review and install of our Barricade Rocker Steps. Remember for all things Jeep, keep it at extremeterrain.com.

Great running boards
I like having a wider side step so I can stand on it easily to access the top. I also want to wide so I can get on it with my ski boots. Very durable. No rust. I have been using them for 6 months through heat, rain, salt, and snow.Helpful (0)

Sturdy and badass
Great steps, at a great price! Very sturdy (and therefore, very heavy), yet very easy to install. I installed them by myself (with a stool to prop each one during installation) in less than one hour. The fit is perfect, the final look is badass.Helpful (0)

Well designed step
We were looking for a solid, good looking, easy to install steps and these fit the desire. They look rugged, are sizable, and provide some confidence for vehicle protection. One side installed in 5 minutes. The other side took some more coaxing.Helpful (1)

Good product, but not what I was looking for.
My Jeep has fairly small lift (3-4”), I had rock glides already there but wanted to make it easier for my wife and kid to get in. I didn’t realize when buying that these steps don’t reduce the height or offer a slightly lower platform to get in. I find these steps actually make it more difficult to get in, now I have to avoid the step when getting in. I should have bought something that I can actually step onto.Helpful (1)

Solid step, exactly what I was looking for my family to get into Jeep. Easy installation took about an hour.Helpful (1)

The install on the drivers side was quick and took me about 15 min. (not bad for an old disabled vet eh?) The passengers side was where I ran into some issues. The middle and rear of the 3 brackets had rather severe fitment issues... well actually they fit fine but the rear most bolts of each of those brackets did not have enough clearance for a 16mm deep impact socket to fit between the large body washer and the inside of the bracket. (I posted some photos) At first I thought "no big deal I will just slide them around some since there are groves for the bolts not holes"... Didn't help at all. I ended up having to use standard depth, non-impact socket to tighten these nuts. The bolt farthest to the rear actually required me to force the socket in (tapping with hammer on extension) to get it seated. (and no I did not get it stuck, but it did take some effort to get it out). If I were to remove it, I would probably find that the slots are not long enough on front side of each of the three mounts, since it did go into place, and the problem got progressively worse from front to rear. Bottom line: looks great, works well, fit on my Jeep, but -2 stars (fit) and -1 star (bang for buck) because once the passenger side was on, it did not have enough room for a impact socket to fit. Overall - 1 star for the fit issue. Final thought: Couldn't find it on the site or in the video, but the included instructions (1 side of 1 page, awesome!) said to tighten the nuts to 40ft/lbs.Helpful (1)

Functional looks perfect!
I absolutely love the way these look on my JKU. They are heavy duty and are both functional and look awesome. Highly recommend.Helpful (1)
Will these work with the factory installed Rubicon rock rails?
Unfortunately, the Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps do not work with the factory Rubicon rails, you would have to remove your factory Rubi Rails before installing these.
If I don’t have hardware on my Jeep cause it came factory with no running boards what hardware am I suppose too use ????
These steps would mount to the body and you would use the factory body mount bolts to install these steps with.
What do I use too install these If my Jeep I purchased doesn’t have any factory side steps ??
The Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps reuse the factory hardware that is already on your Jeep.
I have been looking for a replacement for my stock rail since I have the 35" tires last time in canyonlands i had many instances of tire rub but never came close to needing the rail protection. So do these extend toward the tire as far as the stock rail or are they a bit shorter..... Pics would indicate shorter but any info is helpful
They do not extend past the pinch weld seam into the wheel well on the body, as shown. You will rub the body before you rub on these rails.
Will these fit a 2018 4 door Rubicon JL?
These Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps will not fit on a JL.
The factory side steps are about 6" while the Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps are about 8". In addition, the factory steps are plastic with a steel substructure and the Barricade Rocker Steps are made of solid steel.
I would recommend inserting rubber or hard plastic washers between the running board mounts and the bolts holding it in place to try an isolate the running board and reduce metal on metal creaking.
The Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps would help cut down on what is thrown up from the ground, but this is not their primary design function, so they will not eliminate road debris, gravel, and mud from contacting the Jeeps body.
These Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps will certainly fit a 2017 model. The video was released prior to the release of the 2017's, however, installation has stayed the same. We apologize for the confusion.
Hello, if these Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps ever start to have a problem with surface rust please feel free to give us a call or send us an email so we can send you out one of our touch up kits. http://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html
Hello, these steps will re-use the factory hardware already on the Jeep.
Yes, both the right and left side steps are included.
These side steps are not rated to hold a hi-lift jack but as they are able to withstand someone stepping on them they do have some strength to them. There would need a custom mount needed to mount the jack.
These come with a Textured Black Powder Coat Finish.
The Barricade Extreme HD Rocker Steps are rated to handle 350 lbs.
