Merideth: If you need a drop step for your Bronco, to help you get in and out, but you like the look of a running board, these Dominator D1 Cab-Length Drop Side Step Bars in Textured Black will be a great addition to your 2021 or newer 4-door Bronco. Now, these side step bars will be a great choice for the Bronco owner who needs better access for their cab area, for themselves as well as their passengers, especially if they've added a lift kit or a leveling kit to the truck. Now, the durable construction will also do a great job at protecting the side body of the Bronco, whether you're taking it off-road and come in contact with an obstacle, or you want to just protect the side of your Bronco from any door dings in the parking lot.Now, these will also have a very sporty styling, with the sleek, tubed construction and the dimpled stepping plate here, offering a very off-road look to the side of the truck. The step itself will be made of a tubed and plate mild steel construction, with a protective black powder coat finish on top for rust resistance and, of course, additional style. Now, the stepping surface will be 5 inches wide as well, offering a lot of real estate underneath your foot for getting in and out. Now the top of the step will also be dimpled, like I mentioned before, and that pattern is not only gonna be there for style, but, of course, to prevent any puddling on the step, and offering a little bit of extra traction underneath your foot.I like that this top tubular portion will also tuck very high and tight to that rocker area, offering a very finished look, and it's gonna have a direct bolt-on install, and come with everything that you need, including all of the brackets and the hardware, for a straightforward install. As far as price is concerned, this will be a more premium choice, coming in at roughly $575. Now, these will have a quality build, and offer a good balance between accessibility for your cab area, as well as protection. Now, comparing these to other choices on the site, I do like the fact that not only will these give you that drop, but these are also going to be protective, as to where some other choices may only be focused on the accessibility aspect, and may not have as protective or as durable as a construction.Now, you'll also see drop individual steps on the page. They do have the potential to get snagged up if you are going off-road, but what I like about these is that this is going to give you the additional drop. It may not be as high clearance as some other running boards, but this will also act as a rock slider. So, you're getting that drop. If you come in contact with an obstacle, an individual step, you have that middle to get snagged up on, but with this you'll be able to slide right off of it.Now, I personally think if you have the couple extra bucks to spend, and you like the quality that these have and bring to the table, and you also are a fan of that running board style, but need that extra little bit of drop to get in and out of your Bronco, then these are gonna be a great choice. Now, install will be a pretty easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about two hours to get the job done with some basic hand tools. Now, speaking of the install, one of our guys in the shop is gonna show you a detailed breakdown of how to get these onto your Bronco at home. So, that's gonna wrap it up for me. Let's jump into the install.Man: Tools used for this install, 3/8 electric ratchet, 3/8 ratchet, 8-millimeter Allen head socket, a short 3/8 extension, 11, 17-millimeter sockets, and an 11-millimeter ratcheting wrench.Hey, guys. I'm gonna show you how to install our step bars here on our '21 Bronco, so let's get started. So, the first thing we're gonna do on our install is we're gonna install our brackets on the side of our vehicle. Now, on this truck, we have two holes here, and then one threaded hole from the factory, that's threaded underneath. We're gonna put one here, one there, and one here. You're gonna wanna look into manufacturers, and they're gonna show you which ones go where. I have 'em all sorted out here. So, we're gonna start by installing these, get these done, then we can install our step bars.So, now we're at the back of the vehicle, I'm gonna install our rear bracket first. I'm gonna take my 17-millimeter here that comes in the kit, with a lock washer and a flat washer. I'm gonna get this started first. And I'm gonna run that into this hole right here. And then what I'm gonna do is the kit comes with 11 millimeters. I'm gonna take this one with a flat washer. Stick it through there. I'm gonna take another flat washer, a lock washer, and the nut. Gonna get this one started. Same on this side. I don't know if you can see it, but I'm doing the same thing, 11-millimeter with another flat washer, lock washer, and nut. Snug it up by hand. And I'm gonna take my 3/8 ratchet with my 17-millimeter. I'm gonna tighten this one up first. Then I'm gonna take my 3/8 electric ratchet with an 11-millimeter socket and an 11-millimeter wrench, and we're gonna tighten these up.That's that one. And that's that one. Now, we'll go on to our middle bracket. Now we're on to our middle bracket, and as you can see, it's just about the same thing, except for the bracket has a piece on it that's out this way. Same, again. We're gonna take our 17-millimeter with our lock washer and flat washer. We're gonna get this one started first. Now we got this started. I'm gonna tighten it up by hand. Again, I'm gonna take my 11-millimeter bolts here, little flat washer, and get them through the hole here. Like that. I'm gonna take a flat washer, and a lock washer, and a nut. I'll snug this one up. Do the same in the front here. And a flat washer, lock washer, and nut.Now I'm gonna take my 17-millimeter socket and 3/8 ratchet, tighten this up first. And then, my 3/8 electric ratchet, with an 11-millimeter and my 11-millimeter wrench. Tighten these up. Same with this one. There we go. Now we'll install our front bracket. So, now I'm gonna take my front bracket and do the same. Take my 17-millimeter with a locking washer. And get this up in place. I'm gonna take my 11-millimeter bolt here with a flat washer, put it through the hole. Again, another flat washer and locking washer, and then a nut. Let me get this baby on by hand, like that. The same for this one. Locking washer and nut, and snug it up by hand.All right. Now, I'm gonna take my 17-millimeter socket and ratchet again, and tighten these up. And then my electric 3/8 ratchet here, with my wrench, which is an 11-millimeter. Tighten these two up. And now we're ready to install our side step bar.So, now that we've got our brackets on our vehicle, I got our running board here on the table. What we're gonna do is, in the kit, they supply us with these brackets here. What I'm gonna do with these, so I'm gonna take the running board, stick it up, and slide these in here. Pretty much like this. And you'll be able to slide 'em where you want 'em. These are gonna hold the running board itself onto the brackets.Remember, they're gonna go like this, as you can see how I have 'em. And I'm just gonna get 'em in here for now, and then I'll move them around when I get 'em down there, and then I can put 'em where I want, according to where the running board's gonna sit on the vehicle. Now we're ready to take this, get it in place down here, and stick it on.So, now what I did was I actually put the running board on a jack. Now, if you're at home, if you don't have a jack, you can get somebody else to give you a hand. I didn't have an extra person right now, so I'm gonna use my floor jack. And what I'm gonna do is just jack it up, and I'm gonna get it in place. That way, I'm not struggling trying to hold it. And I'm gonna line it up, and just reel it under, pretty much like that. And once I got it in place like that, we're gonna crawl underneath. I'm gonna line the brackets up where they have to be. Make sure that when you put this running board on, you center it where you want it in the vehicle. I kind of have ours where we're gonna have it. Then we'll start our bolts and then tighten them up, and then the running board's done.So, now we're underneath the vehicle. What I did was slid my bracket where I wanted it here, to line it up. And in the kit, they supply you with these Allen head bolts. They have a lock washer and flat washer. Gonna get these started in our bracket. And once I get 'em started, I'm gonna take my 8-millimeter Allen head here on my 3/8 drive, run these in a little bit. I'm not gonna run 'em in too much. I'm gonna start the other ones, and I'll go back over and tighten these up, so I can move this thing around a little bit. Now, I got 'em just in there barely. Now, what you're gonna wanna do is repeat this same procedure, slide your bracket on the other two here. We'll get those started, and then we'll come back and tighten everything up.So, now I have 'em all started, and have the brackets where I want 'em. What I'm gonna do is start by taking my 8-millimeter on my 3/8 ratchet, and tighten the back one up first. Same with this one here. Then we'll move to our middle bracket. And again, my 8-millimeter on my 3/8 ratchet. We're gonna tighten this one up. Same with this one. Now we'll go to our front bracket. Again, my 8-millimeter on my 3/8 ratchet. I'm gonna tighten these two up. And this one. Now you're gonna wanna just repeat this whole install procedure on the opposite side.That wraps up this review and install of our Dominator D1 Cab-Length Drop Side Step Bars, Textured Black, for '21 and up Bronco 4-Doors.
