Merideth: If you want some stylish and reliable accessibility for your 2020 or a newer JT Gladiator, these N-Fab EpYx Cab Length Nerf Side Step Bars in Textured Black will be a great addition to your build. Now, these will be a great pick for the JT owner who has added a lift to their truck and needs a little bit more when it comes to getting a boost up into the cab with the dropped step.Now, this set will also provide some great protection to kick up or obstacles, whether you're doing any lighter trails or just your everyday adventures. Not to mention, these will be very stylish and offer some more off-road and heavy-duty appeal to the side of your JT. Now, these will be made of a durable steel construction giving you some peace of mind that they'll protect the rocker area, especially with this upper bar here.Now, on top, you'll see a textured black powder coat finish, again, offering a heavy-duty look, but also to protect the steel underneath. Now, the step itself is going to drop down from this top bar about 2 inches and is going to offer a 3-3/4-inch by 12-inch stepping surface for a good amount of real estate underneath your foot when getting in and out. The stepping surface here will also have a high traction louvered platform to offer a bit more grip underneath your foot, which is especially helpful when they get wet.Getting into price, this will come in at roughly $500, which is pretty average for a high-quality step. Now, compared to other choices, this will feature that heavy-duty construction, ample access to your truck, and a more boxy appearance. Now some choices on the page with a similar construction may feature a different style step, it may be a little bit bigger or even smaller, or it may hang down a little bit more, or you're gonna see options with a tubular build.Now, overall, if you want a heavier-duty feel to get a boost up into your truck with a quality set that's going to give the side of your Gladiator a lot of style, then this is a great set to choose.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, we can head over to the shop for a detailed breakdown of what that looks like. That's going to wrap it up for me. Let's get into the install.Man: The tools you're gonna need for this installation include: a ratchet, regular or electric, 12, 13, and 14-millimeter sockets, 13 and 14-millimeter wrenches, and optionally, an impact gun. How's it going, everybody? Today, we have a set of side steps that we're going to show you the install process for, and we have to get started on the tables by installing the brackets on our steps first. So, let's get started.All right. We're here on our workbench and we have our driver-side side step. We're gonna get started by installing the brackets on our side step here. So, we're gonna need the 3 brackets, 6 each of the carriage bolts and flange nuts, our 14-millimeter socket, and a 14-millimeter ratcheting wrench. I'm gonna be installing these brackets in each location that they go, which is here in the middle, on the right, and on the left right here.So, we're starting here on the far right mounting point and bracket, my right, your left. And the first thing I'm gonna do is take one of the carriage bolts, put it through here, and lock this down with a flange nut, and then put the other carriage bolt through. And a note, well, as you can see that our side step is upside down, so with the side step upside down, you want your brackets oriented like this when you install them.And we're gonna leave all the brackets loose for now so that when we put it up on the Gladiator, we can adjust as necessary. All right. Now, for the middle mounting point and bracket, same thing. All right. Moving on to our last bracket. All right. Now, I'm gonna go back with my 14-millimeter ratcheting wrench and just snug them just a little bit enough so that when we put it up to the Jeep, it's not moving around too much. And I'll do the same for the other two brackets.All right. Now we can put this up to the Jeep, line it up, and put some bolts through. All right. We're here on the driver's side of the Gladiator, and as you can see, it's up in the air. Now, we do this just to give you a better view of what's going on. But for you at home, not really necessary for you to lift it up in order to do this. But what we're going to do is line up our brackets on our side step with the holes in the body, as you can see here on the pinch weld, and there are some holes underneath as well.We're gonna start with the middle bracket, put a couple of bolts through there so it can hold itself up and we can put the rest through. At this time, probably a good idea to grab a friend because these things are pretty heavy with the brackets on them. We are underneath the Gladiator now at the middle bracket, and this is the one mounting point for our middle bracket here.So, if you look right behind the pinch weld, and then directly up from the body, there are threaded holes. So, this is the center one we'll be using for our center bracket. And then we're also gonna put two bolts through the pinch welds here to hold it in place. We're gonna leave them loose so that we have room for adjustability to get the rest of the bolts and nuts through.All right. So, you wanna make sure that this part of the bracket right here is on the outside of the pinch weld, and then line up this slotted hole with your threaded hole in the body, and put this flanged bolt with washer through. Again, just put it on loosely, hand-tight. All right. Then you can let it rest. If your buddy is holding the one end, just give them a heads up to keep holding on to that other end so that we can get our other bolts and nuts and put them through the pinch welds here.So, there's one on this side. And if you look right across, there's another one. It's probably hard to see on camera me putting this one through, but I'm gonna put this bolt and nut through and then do the other one as well. And again, we're just gonna leave all of these loose so that we have room for adjustability.All right. Now we're gonna go ahead and grab four more of the black bolts and flange nuts here, and two more of those goldish bolts with the washers on them, and get the rest of this installed. We're now here at the front bracket and with the center bracket bolt loosely installed, the side step is now supporting itself, so your buddy can take a break.And also, with that center bracket installed, you can see that these holes do line up so you know exactly where you're going to mount the front bracket up. But it is the same thing. So, you got this zinc bolt with washer that we're going to put through the body here into the threaded hole and then the two other bolts through the pinch weld.Again, I apologize, this is probably hard if not impossible to see, but directly across from the first one I installed goes the other nut and bolt through the other pinch weld hole. All right. Now we can move on to the rear bracket. And we're gonna repeat the same exact thing for the rear bracket. Now that we got all our brackets lined up and all our bolts through, we can go back through and line everything up, make sure our side step is nice and straight, and then tighten everything down.So for this, you're gonna need 12, 13, and 14-millimeter sockets and your 13 and 14-millimeter wrenches. We're back at the rear bracket here and we're just gonna tighten everything up. Well, my preference is high and tight so that's what I'm gonna do. Push up, make sure it's tight, and start with this bottom bolt, which is a 12-millimeter. All right. Moving on, I'm gonna hit the pinch weld bolts here with my 13-millimeter socket and 13-millimeter wrench.All right. And lastly, the carriage bolts and flange nuts that we installed first, and they're gonna be 14-mill. So, I'm gonna hit the bottom one with my 14-mill socket and the top one with my 14-mill wrench. All right. And we're just gonna repeat the same thing for the middle and front brackets.Now, for these other two brackets, it is a little tight in here to get to the pinch weld bolt. So, I'm gonna swap out my impact for my electric ratchet. And moving on to the front bracket. That's the install process for the driver-side side steps. So, for the passenger-side side steps, repeat the same steps.That's going to wrap up this review and install of the N-Fab EpYx Cab Length Nerf Side Steps in Textured Black for your '20 and newer Gladiator JT.
