Ryan: These RBP RX-3 Cab Length Step Bars are for those of you that have a 2007 to 2018 four-door JK that are looking for a unique-looking side step. This step is going to work just as well as any other that you'll find. However, this does have a little bit of a different style that we'll talk about in just a second.This is going to install very easily onto your Jeep. Definitely a one out of three wrench installation, but again, we'll touch on that a little bit more in just a moment. Now, there are gonna be quite a few different steps out there that you can get for your Jeep. Some steps are going to be as part of a piece of armor and others are just going to be a step. This is just a step. This is not going to offer protection. If you do some hardcore wheeling, you want some rocker protection and this is not going to be that for you.The way that this mounts and the way that this is constructed means that this is a step and not protection, so do keep that in mind. If you're looking for protection, we have those options as well. But if you are looking for just a step to make it easier for you and your passengers to get in and out of your Jeep and you're looking for something that's a little bit unique in its style, this is going to be a pretty solid choice for you.Now, this is from a company that is known for building some pretty high-quality stuff and because this does have a slightly different designing than some of the others out there, it has a few more components, it is going to be a little bit more expensive as well. So as long as you have the budget and you're interested in the unique styling, again, a pretty good choice.It says in the name that these are cab length steps and that's really a term that you'll see used more in the truck world than in the Jeep world, and RBP does make a lot of truck stuff. So I'm sure that's just a carryover of that. But essentially what this is is going to be a step that covers both the front seat and the rear seat passengers in your four-door JK. It is going to attach in much the same way as a lot of other steps. You'll see here it'll attach onto the pinch seam and onto the underside of the tub in three different locations. So it will be plenty strong for a step but again not designed for protection.This is going to be a .084-inch wall thickness tube steel. There are going to be two tubes here, a couple of pieces of flat stock that connect the two together, again, for strength and for style. You're also going to have some steel mesh here, here and upfront here. And really that's the part that changes this from a lot of the other versions of steps out there to something pretty unique. A lot of these aren't going to have this mesh. The mesh does add a little bit of styling.The step itself is also an area that makes this a little bit different. You can remove this top cover part here that actually says RBP on it and you could color change, put a piece of stainless underneath of it if you chose to do something custom there. You have a little bit of flexibility. And again, these are the things that make this unique and a little more expensive than some of the other options out there.I've mentioned a couple of times now that you're gonna pay a little bit of a premium for these because of the unique styling that they offer you. These are gonna come in at right around $600. Now there are some very strong armor pieces that are a little bit more functional than even this is that are in that price range. But for something that is a step and isn't protection, $600 is going to be a little bit higher on the price range.Again, if you like this styling, this is still a very solid and very well-built option. I have nothing bad to say about the way that these are designed or put together. However, you are going to have that higher budget in order to step up into something like this. Now I'll have a member of the install team show you how you get this bolted up to your Jeep.Tony: To begin our installation of our steps, you're gonna have to go ahead and slide underneath your Jeep. Get your side step in position. I'm laying mine on my lap. We're gonna go back underneath. There's a couple holes that are already in the Jeep. We're gonna slide weld nut tabs into them and secure them with hardware. If your Jeep does not have these, in the instructions, it will show you how to drill the holes using a 5/16 bit.What we're gonna do is we're gonna take our new weld tab nut that comes, slide it up into this hole in the frame and position it thusly. We're gonna do that for the middle and the front of our vehicle.Now that our weld nut tabs are in place, we're gonna go ahead and slide our step up, lining it up with holes on the pinch welds underneath your Jeep. These holes here we are gonna use for more support using the hardware that comes in the kit. We're gonna go ahead and use the supplied bolt and washer to secure our step to the bottom of the vehicle. This way, we can go ahead and get the rest of our hardware installed.Now that we have one bolt supporting our side step, we can go ahead and get the rest of our hardware installed. This is gonna be a little difficult to see, but if you stay tuned, we'll show you exactly where it's at. Now, you're not gonna want to tighten these down until we get all our hardware inserted and then you can go back and snug it all up.Next we're gonna take our smaller bolts that come with the kit and our smaller washers. We're going to go ahead and get the bolts that go through our pinch weld into our side step and these will hold them nice and solid to the vehicle. Make sure you use a washer and lock washer on the back of the bolt where you're installing the nut. Once again, don't tighten these down until all our hardware is installed and we're gonna go back and snug everything up.Now using a 13-millimeter socket and a 13-millimeter wrench, we're gonna go back and we're gonna start tightening up our bolts. You can do this with a ratchet. I'm gonna be using an electric impact gun. If you have one of these, it makes your life a lot easier. If not, it's okay, a ratchet does just fine.Now using the same 13-millimeter socket, we're gonna tighten up our rearward-most bolt and then using a 16-millimeter socket, we're gonna go ahead and tighten up the two front ones.And that concludes the installation of our Rolling Big Power RX-3 Side Steps.
