Hey, guys. So today, we're checking out the RedRock 4x4 OEM Style Side Step Bars, fitting all 2007 to 2018 4-door JK Wranglers. So, if you didn't get a side step right out of the factory and you're looking for an OEM-style step, this is going to be a great choice to take a look into.So, this is also going to be great if you already have the OEM steps and you have damaged one while you're out on the trail, or they have faded from UV rays, and you're looking for an upgraded replacement. Now, this is going to have a large stepping surface on the front and the back in front of each door, just like the OEM-style step. And this is going to have a textured surface to help you very easily get in and out of your Wrangler, especially if it's lifted, and also going to give you some extra traction in the meantime.Now, these are going to be pretty durable for what they are. They're made of an ABS plastic material, so they will be able to take any lighter hits if you go on any fire trails. They'll protect the body of the Wrangler from any kick up from that front tire, and any doordings in the parking lot. Now, these will also be UV-treated, so they should not fade in the sun over a long period of time, unlike some other options that are made of a plastic material. Now, on the topic of protection, again, these are going to be for very light protection, so I would not recommend these to somebody who's looking for a lot of protection to their rocker area, especially if they're doing some heavy-duty off-roading.Now, with all that being said, these are gonna come in right around $175, making these a very affordable choice for an OEM-style part. So, in comparison to some other choices, other steps on the page are usually not going to have that OEM style or that OEM feel to them. Some other options may just have a smaller round step bar and not more of a running board style like this one. They'll usually have a smaller step, or you're going to see those more expensive choices that will usually be made of a heavy-duty material like a steel material, and those are gonna be for you guys out there that are doing some heavy-duty off-roading. Now, if you're not doing that, you're just looking for some better accessibility to your cab area, you're looking to replace a step that is broken or is faded, and you're looking for something affordable as well, this is going to be a great choice.Not to mention, they are very easy to install. So I'm going to give this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you probably an hour's worth of your time to get this thing installed with a couple of basic hand tools. So, speaking of that install let me walk you through that right now.The tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench, a 4-millimeter Allen socket, a 13 and 10-millimeter deep socket, and an electric ratchet.So, to kick off this install, we're going to start on the table. Now, our side step comes out of the box without the brackets installed. These are going to be factory-style brackets, so we are going to place them on top of our step and thread in the provided bolts into the Nutserts that are in our step. Now, these three brackets are going to be a little bit different. We're gonna have a shorter one for the front. There's going to be a middle length one for the middle bracket, and then the longer bracket is actually going to go in the back. So, you're going to have some button head bolts. We're going to need three for each of the brackets, and you're also going to need a 4-millimeter Allen key or a 4-millimeter Allen socket, and we can go ahead and thread our brackets onto our step.So, we're going to place the bracket down on top of the step. We're going to grab our button head or Allen bolt, and we're going to thread that into the top. Now, I'm going to snug these up. I don't want to completely tighten them down. As you can tell, they have a little bit of adjustability left and right. We want to make sure that everything is lining up before we tighten them down onto our Jeep and onto the step. If you need help snugging them up, you can grab that Allen key or Allen socket, then we can head over to the next bracket. So, in the kit, you are going to have three different-sized brackets. All you have to do is make sure that it sits correctly in the cutout on the step, and then you will be able to bolt them down. What we can do now is hang the step on our pinch weld. The studs on the bracket should fit through the pinch weld, and they will hang in place.So, once this side step is mounted up and we're underneath the Wrangler, what we can do is secure it down to the body of the Jeep. Starting up at the top, I'm going to take the provided 13-millimeter bolt and flat washer and thread that into the body of the Wrangler, and we're going to snug it up. Again, we're not going to tighten it down yet. We want to make sure that everything is adjusted correctly. And then, on the pinch weld, you're going to have two studs. Those are going to get a flat washer, one each, and then they're also going to get a nut. Now, we're not, again, going to tighten these up now. We want to make sure that everything is fitting correctly. So, once you have this bracket finished, you can repeat that for the other two brackets.So, now that we have all of our brackets installed, what we're going to do is tighten everything down. I'm gonna start with this top bolt using a 13-millimeter socket. Next, we can secure down the two pinch weld nuts. I'm going to tighten them up with a 10-millimeter socket. And last but not least, for this bracket, we need to tighten up the three Allen head bolts, using that 4-millimeter Allen socket or Allen key. Then we can repeat that for the other two brackets. So, after you're done tightening down the side that you've just installed, you can repeat that process on the other side.So, that's going to wrap it up for my review and install.
