    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan with and this is my review of the RedRock 4x4 three-inch round side steps, fitting all of 1987 to 2006 Wranglers. These are available in the textured black powder coat finish that you see here, but they're also available in a gloss black and a polished stainless finish. These are even available for those of you with the long wheelbase TJ Unlimiteds. These are for those of you who want to make it a little bit easier to get into and out of your lifted or even a stock height TJ. These provide a nice large stepping surface and they do it at a really reasonable price, even when compared to other tube steps on the market. Now, it is important to remember that these are not Side Armor. These are not going to hold up to trail obstacles, like Armor would. So, if you're somebody who goes off road a lot, you'll want to look into some of the Armor options that also have the step built in. But, if you're somebody who stays on the road and wants to save a little bit of money, these are a great step. These steps are built from a tubular stainless steel material, which means they're going to resist both rust and corrosion and last a good long time. In fact, these come with a limited three-year warranty. You have a few choice of three different finishes with these, either the textured black powder coat finish that you see here, a gloss black powder coat or a polished stainless. So, no matter what look you're going for on your Jeep, there's an option available for you. No matter which finish you choose, they all have this non-skid stepping pad, which means you're going to be able to safely and easily use the step to get both in and out of your Jeep, even if it's muddy or rainy. Now, these steps are going to decrease your ground clearance a little bit just by the nature of the way they're mounted. So again, if you're somebody who takes your Jeep off road a lot, you might want to look at some other options. These side steps are designed to be completely bolt on, which means you don't have to drill or cut anything to get them installed. However, they're not going to work in conjunction with any other step, including your factory side steps. Now, these mount using the factory body bolts on your Jeep, which can be notoriously difficult to remove, especially if you have an older TJ or one that has a lot of rust on it. So I would recommend spraying those bolts with a good penetrating oil a few days before you get started. Once you get those bolts removed, you'll install the included brackets and then bolt your new side steps to those brackets. The whole installation process should take about two hours and you'll only need three different sockets, a 10-millimeter, 16-millimeter, and 19-millimeter. I do like these steps, especially for the price you pay. The stainless construction means they are going to hold up better than a mild steel step would if you end up getting any scratches or dings in the finish. They're designed to be completely bolt on, they're well-built, and I think they look pretty good as well. So, if you're somebody who wants to add a step to their Jeep and doesn't need the protection of more expensive Armor, these are a less expensive and easy to install option. So, that's my review of the RedRock 4x4 three-inch round side step, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers that you can find right here at

    Dual Function. RedRock 4x4's 3 inch Round Side Steps will give your Jeep Wrangler YJ or TJ an aggressive off-road appearance while providing a convenient step for easy entry into your lifted vehicle. Plus these Side Steps also double as side armor to provide additional protection from brush, trail hazards and door dings.

    Heavy Duty Construction. Manufactured from heavy duty 3" diameter round stainless steel tubing, these RedRock 4x4 Side Steps are completed in a durable textured black powder coat finish for aggressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Easy, Bolt-on Installation. The RedRock 4x4 Wrangler Side Step is engineered to be a direct bolt-on upgrade using just basic hand tools, so there is no drilling or cutting required for a clean straight forward installation.

    Application. This RedRock 4x4 Wrangler 3" Round Side Step is designed to fit 1987 to 2006 2-door Jeep Wrangler YJ and TJ models. Includes driver and passenger side.

      Great Buy

      This side step not only looks good but is easy enough to install anyone can do it with just a little bit of elbow grease. I was a little nervous about doing it myself but it is very straightforward. Getting the bolts loose from the frame of our 2000 Jeep Wrangler was a little tough but we had an air impact wrench which helped a lot. They look great and will help a lot on getting in our 3" lifted Jeep. I would definitely recommend this product.

      I got what I paid for. Easy to install if your body mount bolts come right out. Took me less than an hour to do the job. Lightweight and practical for a street driver and I like the look. Not high end stuff, but they're OK.

      OK, but not great.

      Install went OK, but the install instructions that come with the product are pathetic. You can't make out the photos and the instructions are confusing. I had to install and uninstall the brackets a couple of times because it wasn't at all clear which of the two holes to use on each bracket. Since the body mount bolts have a lot of thread it was a hassle. Once mounted the ends of the tubes did not mate up well with the brackets, leaving one bracket on each side cocked off at an angle. In other words the ends of the tubes do not fit flat to the flat face of the brackets. The tubes are simply too long to fit properly on my early '97 TJ. Possibly because of this misalignment the installed tubes are NOT solid enough to inspire confidence when stepped on. If you are looking only for appearance these side steps will work. If actually using these side steps to get in and out of your TJ I'd look at something sturdier.

      Easy way to make your jeep look "rugged"

      These side steps were quick and easy to install, thought the directions are a little unclear as to exactly where to install them. If you buy these, do one screw at a time, and put the "L" in between the two pieces of rubber for a nice firm fit.

      Flimsy Feeling

      Look good but not sure about functionality. These feel flimsy to me when I stepped on them after the install. I would get something better quality if I had to do it again. One big screw goes into each end of the bars. Also, the installation wasn't as fast as I expected. I have an 06 TJ with 2in body lift. I don't think I mounted it like the directions - I just turned everything upside down/left right until I found a configuration that seemed to work.

      Rock guards rock!

      The hardest part of installing these sidestep Nerf bars was finding the liquid wrench to get the bolts on my rig loosened up! The sidestep installation took 20 minutes, in the dark with a flashlight, helping my son learn how to wrench stuff!

      Review from RedRock 4x4 3 in. Round Side Steps - Gloss Black (87-06 Wrangler YJ & TJ)

      Can't beat the price

      Very easy to install. Look great on the jeep. Installed on a 92 YJ. No adjustments or problems on the install. The only issue you might have is if you have a body lift. The bushings installed between the frame and the body will not allow the mounting bracket to sit flush against the frame. But other then that very happy with them

      Review from RedRock 4x4 3 in. Round Side Steps - Stainless Steel (87-06 Wrangler YJ & TJ)

      Great Product -- Challenging Install

      I thought this would be a fairly simple DIY install on our 1998 TJ and it would have been except for getting the bolts off the Frame. the footprint for our old bars was bigger and the new ones mounted directly to the frame. I ended up having a garage do the install because they were better equipped to remove the 15 year old frame bolts and bushings. Luckily we had a knowledgeable installer and he was able to remove them without breaking any of them -- otherwise it would have gotten complicated. The mounting hardware is excellent and the finished install looked outstanding.

      Installation couldn't have been easier. It took thirty minutes at the most and fit was perfect. So far seem to be very sturdy as a step, and they are doing a great job as serving the purpose of making it easier for my wife to get in since the 4" lift. Very pleased!

      Has a great fit

      It looks great and fits really well. Makes getting into a 3 inch lifted much easier. Only downside is that it is designed to go over the frame bushings so it feels as though there is a slight amount of give when you step on it. However after a little while you barely ever notice it. Over all, great value, great product.
