RedRock 4x4 Extreme Sport Grab Handles - Pair (87-20 Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ, JK & JL)
Hey, guys. So, today I'm here at the RedRock 4x4 three-inch Round Side Step Bars in textured black fitting all 1987 to 2006 TJ and YJs excluding the Unlimited model of the TJ. So, this is gonna be for that TJ or YJ owner who's looking to fill up that wheel to wheel space with something that's gonna be very functional as well as stylish at a very affordable price point. So, this option by RedRock 4x4 is going to double as a step or a boost up into your Wrangler and also some lighter protection. So, it's gonna have a large step right on the back of the side step bar here, it's gonna give you very easy access in and out of your cab area. And that's going to be very helpful, especially if your Jeep is lifted like this one.Now, not only is it gonna help you get in and out of your cab area, it's also gonna help you out with any roof access which is going to make it a lot easier than trying to access your roof rack if you're standing on the ground. Now, like I said, this is also gonna double as some lighter protection. This is made of a durable stainless steel material with a nice textured black powder coat finish on top which is gonna protect that stainless steel underneath, what it's also gonna do is create a really aggressive look to the side of your Wrangler even though these are pretty basic as far as design goes.Now, that stainless steel is going to be pretty durable. However, with the setup, I would not recommend this to the avid off-roader. Now, even though these are going to be able to take any lighter hits from any obstacles on the trail or even door dings in the parking lot and be able to protect the body of your Wrangler, these are not gonna be able to take a very hard hit. So, I would recommend these to somebody who is looking for that convenience of getting in and out of their Jeep, especially if it's lifted like I said before and wants that lighter protection for a little bit of insurance on the side body area.Now, like I said, again, these are gonna be very affordable at roughly $130 making these one of the most affordable choices for side steps on the page right now. So, because this is a pretty basic setup, that's what's really gonna keep the price lower on them and also the fact that these are for lighter protection which I do really like because it's gonna be perfect for that Jeep owner who really just needs an extra step in their Jeep and wants to save a little bit of money in the meantime. Now, if you're taking a look at other options on the page that are gonna be a little bit more expensive, you're usually gonna see different finishes on something like this or you're gonna see more of rocker panel protection. So, this might come with the step, however, you will have to modify the body of your Wrangler in order to get them on or you're just gonna have a drop-down step that can get hung up on obstacles if you are looking to take your Jeep out on the trail. Now, with this, you're getting the best of both worlds, you're getting that lighter protection that's tucked up higher up, and you're very easily able to get in and out of your Jeep. So, I think for $130 roughly that this is definitely worth that price point. Now, install is gonna be a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. However, it is a pretty simple two out of three wrenches. This is probably gonna take about two hours to get done in your driveway with some very basic hand tools. So, speaking of the install, let's jump into that now.The tools that I used for my install were: an impact wrench, a half-inch drive ratchet, a 19-millimeter socket, and a 19-millimeter open-ended wrench.So, what we need to do is take out the front and the rear body mount bolt. Now, you wanna do these one at a time, so we're gonna start up at the front. I'm gonna be using a 19-millimeter socket for this one. However, your factory one should be a 16-millimeter socket. Now, we can grab our bracket. Making sure that the one elongated hole is facing the front, now I am going to put this on the back mount just so we can stretch the side step out a little bit farther and then we're gonna sandwich this mount in between. Then we can tighten that back up with the same 19-millimeter or 16-millimeter socket making sure that the mountain is facing straight. Now, I don't wanna tighten it down all the way just yet because we do have to attach our side step and I want a little bit of adjustability. But you need to make sure that this is threaded into that body mount. Now, we can move to the back and do the same thing.All right. So, what we're gonna do now is grab our side step and push it up into place. Now, you're gonna have a large 19-millimeter bolt, a lock washer, and a flat washer and we're gonna thread that into the back of our side step. So, what you wanna do while holding up your side step is just snug up that bolt so we can go on the other side and thread it in and tighten it down. I'm using a 19-millimeter socket and a ratchet to tighten that up. So, now that that's pretty snugged up, I don't wanna tighten it down just yet, I wanna get in the other side and then we can tighten everything down. So, I had to switch over to an open-ended wrench just because my socket did not fit up against the bracket here. But once you start tightening it down, it should straighten out. It did look a little bit crooked at first. We're gonna keep on tightening this down with a 19-millimeter wrench. And then once these two are tight, we can move over to the other side and do the same thing. So, after the side step bolt is tight, just make sure that your body bolt is tight as well. I'm using that same 19-millimeter impact socket to tighten that up. Then we can repeat that process on the other side. So, after everything is tightened down, all you have to do is repeat that process on the other side and you're all set to go.So, that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install.

Not bad for road jeep
I bought these to make getting into the jeep easier for the wife and I. They work well for this. Only took me 25vmin to install and I did them myself in the driveway. If you have not had your body mount bolts out lube them and use an impact.Helpful (1)

Dresses up the looks of my Jeep and makes it easier for me to get in and out. One of the bolts that shipped with it was the wrong thread pitch, but I didn't feel like that deserved a ding in rating. A quick trip to the hardware store did the trick. The hardest part was getting the body mount bolts loose!Helpful (1)

Is this priced as a pair or single side ?
This is priced as a pair of side step bars, not per single side.
What is the weight limit for these step ins?
The RedRock 4x4 3 in. Round Side Steps - Gloss Black (87-06 Wrangler YJ & TJ) does not have a weight limit listed unfortunately. But the side steps are very well made and will hold up well.

If I purchase this product will I have to have my quantity at two? or will quantity one still get me both sides? I suppose what I am asking is how many will I get in the box?
TheRedRock 4x4 3 in. Round Side Step Bars is sold as a pair with a specific driver and passenger side.
May sound silly but the $169. cost is it in US dollars since I'm purchasing it for delivery into Toronto.
Yes, all our prices are listed in USD unless you are on our international site via i-Parcel.
It would depend on your size lift and overall set up of your Jeep but we have not experienced any issues with 35s and the RedRock 4x4 3 in. Round Side Step Bars.
The gloss black is meant to be durable, and have a finish that will handle some wear on it. All three finishes are intended to be heavy duty, but they are going to remove ground clearance and may not be best for extensive rock-crawling.
I apologize for the inconvenience, we do not offer the hardware for the steps separately from the kit. If you received the order missing any hardware please call, email, or chat in so we can have that corrected for you.
The item is not powder coated on the inside of the tubing.
The RedRock 4x4 3 in. Round Side Steps will work with the factory mounting locations shown in the install instructions, should be approximately 55-60" apart.
These RedRock 4x4 3 in. Round Side Step will fit on your 2003 Rubicon as long as the option rock rails from Jeep.
Hi,I'm sorry to hear you are having problems with your side steps, please call or send us an email and we can help you out with your problem. http://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html
