Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from, and this is my review and installation of the CARR Super Hoop, fitting all 2007 and up JKs. These are available in three different finishes, the black that you see here, also a polished aluminum, and a titanium powder coat, so you can pick the color that best matches your build. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of these steps, which I am going to give a two out of three wrenches because this is more of a universal fit item, there is some drilling required to get these installed, and you are going to have to give yourself around two hours to make sure you do this install properly. But we'll talk more about the installation in just a second. We're also gonna talk through the construction and a few of the features of these steps. A side step is great for helping you get in and out of your lifted or even stock-height JK. However, some of you may not be interested in a full-length, tubular step and just want the part that you actually need. Now, when you're installing a step like this, you do have to keep in mind that this is not designed to hold up to off-road abuse, and because it does hang down so far, if you go off-road with this step on your vehicle, depending on the type of wheeling you do, there is a good chance that you're going to damage or break the step. But if you're somebody who stays on-road, wants a very useful step, but doesn't want that full-width, tubular step, this is going to be a really nice option to look at. Now, this is going to be a 20-inch step, the Super Hoop, which is going to be wider than the CARR Hoop II. So if you like this design, but you want something that's a little bit smaller, the Hoop II is certainly an option. But if you want that really nice, wide stepping surface, this CARR Super Hoop is going to be a better option for you. Now, overall, I think that this is a very well-built step, especially for the price. However, you do have to keep in mind this is not for those of you who are going to take your Jeep off-road, and you do have to drill some holes to get these installed. So like I said, these Super Hoops are 20 inches wide, giving you a really nice, large stepping surface, and because of the way these mount, drilling holes into the pinch seam, you can really put them anywhere you want along the Jeep. These are sold in a pair, so if you have a four-door, you want them for the front and the rear, get yourself two pair. And you can really mount them anywhere underneath the door that you want to make them a really comfortable stepping surface. These are a die cast aluminum, so they're incredibly lightweight, but also very strong. And they're corrosion-resistant, even though they are covered with this textured black powder coat finish. If you were to get a scratch in this, you're not going to get rust like you would with mild steel. You'll still get a little bit of corrosion if you just have raw aluminum, but these aren't going to rust away like a mild steel step would if you scratch the finish. These have a ridged surface on it, which is going to give you a lot of grip. It even comes up on the side here a little bit. So even in muddy, snowy, wet conditions, you're going to have a really solid step that'll help you get in and out of your Jeep. So as I said, you do have to drill some holes to get these installed, so I'm giving this a two out of three wrenches. And I would give yourself around two hours, so that you can definitely measure twice, drill once. Anytime you're drilling holes in the body, you wanna make sure you get it right the first time, so take your time with this install. As far as the install itself goes, it is very straightforward. You have these brackets, two per step, that you're going to be installing on the pinch seam and the underside of the tub. The step will then bolt onto this bracket. And as far as where they go, again, it's really up to you. You hold the step up, move it side to side. As long as there are no obstructions, there's no bolts or wrinkles in the tub where you wanna mount this bracket, you can really put it anywhere. The instructions are very clear on which ones of these holes you need to drill out to a 5/16ths size, and then, as I said before, just use the included hardware to bolt your step onto the bracket once it's installed. So as far as tools go, you are going to need your traditional hand tools, your socket set, but you're also going to need a good, sharp set of drill bits and a drill, and a center punch to keep the drill bit from walking around when you're trying to drill the body. Anytime you're purchasing something that's aluminum, it's going to be a little bit more expensive than a steel version of the same thing. However, because of the benefits of using aluminum on a step like this, I think these are worth the price you have to pay. These come in right around $150 for the pair of the steps. Again, they're aluminum, so they're lightweight, they are going to be strong, and they are not going to rust away if you do end up scratching the finish on them. So overall, for a step of this style, I do like them and I do think they're worth the price. Again, if you're somebody who's going off-road, I would recommend more of a rock slider that has a built-in step, or if you're somebody who wants a smaller version of these, the CARR Hoop II is available. However, if you want a nice, large stepping surface, I think that this is a nice choice at a fair price. So if you're looking to add a step onto your JK to make it easier for you and your passengers to get in and out, but you're not interested in one of the more traditional, full-length tube steps and you don't need or want rocker protection, this is going to be an option that is lightweight. And as long as you're okay with drilling, this is going to be a fairly-priced alternative. So that's my review of the CARR Super Hoop, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here at

Extra-Large, Extra-Strong Hoop Steps. Rock solid and dependable, the Carr Super Hoop XP3 Black Powder Coat Step (Pair) puts 20” of flat, stable step area with a shoe-gripping diamond tread pattern just underneath each of your 2007-2017 Wrangler’s doors. This stylish-looking but practical component bolts onto the rocker panel, one of the strongest lower body panels on your Jeep, for even greater weight-supporting capability. Since the Super Hoop is made from aluminum, it won’t be secretly weakened by rust, either, but will be just as strong years from now as when you install it. This is a step that will keep you solidly on your feet even when your Jeep’s tilted on rough terrain or in the middle of a slippery storm of snow.

Built with American Know-How. Made fully in the United States as your guarantee of quality and customer service, the Carr Super Hoop XP3 Step is die cast from a corrosion-proof aluminum alloy. Matte black powder-coat finish completes the step, and is formulated to resist peeling or chipping. These 20” steps are wide enough to offer light protection to the rocker panels, and feature the flat step area and positive tread pattern needed for slip-free safety.

Straightforward Install with Drilling. Packaged with all necessary brackets and hardware, the Carr Super Hoop XP3 Step fastens to your Jeep’s rocker panels with an included multi-mount. Drilling is needed to create mounting points for the bolts in your vehicle’s rocker panels.

Warranted for a Lifetime. The Carr Super Hoop XP3 step is covered by a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty that includes both materials and craftsmanship.

Application. The Carr Super Hoop - XP3 Black steps are designed for use on 2007-2017 Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited models. Sold as a pair.

Will this work with 2 inch lift kit with 2 inch spacers installed by dealer on 2017 Wrangler?


  • Thank you for your question! This is mounted to the pinch weld and will be able to work with any lift.

Will this work with stock rock rails that come on '15 Rubicon models?


  • You can get this product to work with Rubicon Rails as this unit requires drilling for install. However some positions desired may lead to interference between the two.

Will these steps work with Barricade rock rails/ I already have rock rails mounted on the jeep. Will mounting allow for these stepps or is the rails using the designated holes?


  • The Carr Super Hoop - XP3 Black Powder Coat Pair (07-17 Wrangler JK) will not mount with rock rails that are connected at the pinch seam as this unit utilizes the same mounting location.

    09 Rubicon

    They look great on my '09 Rubicon. Just what I was looking for - great alternative to the long running boards. Only complaint is the screws they supply to mount the step to your frame....not heavy duty enough for such a great step. I ordered rivets instead and they work perfect.

    Clean look with great functionality

    This step has a super look and it is well designed. I did the install myself in about 2 hours and was not in a rush. I found the instructions a bit lacking as several key steps were missing. Here are a few hints: (1) you must first attach the brackets on the step so you can mark your desired drill holes--sounds easy but is tricky --actually mark the edge lines of the brackets at this stage (2) be careful on the hole locations -- there are not as many options for proper placement as one may think, (3) you must then disassemble brackets from steps so you can actually mark the hole locations for the center punch for drilling, (4) line up your center punch on the exterior side of your Jeep--you will drill from this side, not from underneath because there just is not enough room, (5) the brackets can be mounted on your Jeep following the remaining instructions. All considered, a great step for the money. Time will tell on durability, but as of now they are well anchored and sturdy.

    look good, well designed

    Good design, they only use two bolts each, with a clever bracket that uses leverage against the frame. The only thing is if you come down on it hard enough on a rock or something it would definitely bend up and possible break those screws, as the frame only supports downward pressure.

    Really nice product and they look great on my 2 door Willy's Wheeler. Very easy install with minimal labor but does require some drilling. If you have side rails below your doors, you will have to remove those before doing the install. They come off and go back on, after mounting the steps, very easily.
