I'm Ryan with extremeterrain.com and this is my review of the RedRock 4x4 4-inch Straight Oval Side Steps, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There is a version of these available for both the two-door and four-door body style, and they're available in the textured black you see here, and a polished stainless finish. These are for anyone who wants a little bit of help getting into or out of their lifted or stock height JK. Now, it's important to remember that these are side steps and these are not armor.Side steps will generally have a larger and easier to use lower stepping platform than armor will. However, these are not going to hold up to trail obstacles, and they're going to decrease your ground clearance a little bit. So, depending on what you use your jeep for, these may be an inexpensive and easy to use step option if you don't need armor. These side steps are built from a tubular stainless steel, which means that even if you do get a nick or a scratch in the finish, they're going to do a good job of resisting both rust and corrosion.Like I said before, these are the 4-inch straight oval version of these steps, but they're also available in different sizes and shapes. You can get these steps in both the textured black powder coat that you see here, or a polished, stainless finish. No matter what finish you choose, they both have this non-skid stepping pad, which makes it really easy to get in and out of the jeep in wet or muddy conditions. These will help to protect your jeep against door dings in a parking lot, but to reiterate, these are not going to help you if you're out on the trail and you're looking for protection.These are designed to be a really easy install, and bolt directly to the pinch seam of your jeep, without the need to drill anything. They'll include all of the brackets and the hardware necessary to get them installed. The instructions for these can be a little bit difficult to follow, because they're designed to mount on a couple of different year ranges of Jeep, and Jeep changed the pinch seam a couple of times. So just take your time, and you'll be fine with the install.Because of that same reason, you'll also have some leftover hardware when you're finished. But again, don't be alarmed, it's completely normal. The install for these side steps should take about two hours, and you won't need any specialty tools, just some sockets and some wrenches. I would however, recommend that you do have a tap and die set handy, because depending on your year of jeep, you may be threading some bolts up into the body. And if you're somebody that takes their Jeep off-road, or even just drives it a lot, you may have some dirt and grime up in that hole and it will definitely be helpful to clear it out with a tap so you don't cross-thread your bolts.These side steps are priced really fairly for what you get. They're actually less expensive than a lot of other side steps on the market that are of similar design, and in my mind, I don't see a reason to pay more. So if you're looking for an affordable side step to help you get in and out of the jeep and you don't have the need for a heavy duty, expensive armor, these are a really nice option.So that's my review of the RedRock 4x4 Straight Oval Side Steps, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Seems to be a cheap metal, bends easy . The directions for install suck. The parts were not labeled so it was a guessing game for install for sure. Just ok but look good.Helpful (1)

Did not fit
This did not fit on my 2018 Jk. Had to leave the brackets a little twisted to fit. The brackets fit the holes in the frame and pinch seam but the holes on the bars to the back were 3/4” off. Had to loosen all the bolts and screw in the bar then tighten the frame and pinch seam bolts.Helpful (1)

Noticed rust coming through from under the plastic foot pads after 9-10 months. Not covered under warranty. Quoted "recommend sanding down the areas that are rusting, spray them Rust-Oleum and then re-coat the side steps." I'll take action to prevent complete erosion, but this is a poor quality product. Waste of money. Would not recommend this product.Helpful (2)

Red Rock Side Steps
The Red Rock side steps add a finished looked to my 2015 JK and are very useful in getting in and out of the Jeep. The installation was very easy, however, i had to purchase some of my own hardware to complete the install because there was not enough included to install the 4 mounting brackets.Helpful (1)

Instructions are clunky, install not bad
Overall very straight forward install. Item is well built, looks nice. Hands down make the truck look more complete, and I would recommend to anyone. A couple items I wish people told me: 1. The brackets say “F” and “R” on them, but do not designate the side. Check the color of the bags and that will help you determine which are a pair. 2. You may have some tape underneath your car that are covering the holes. Just yank it off and you can use the Bolt brackets. 3. Make sure you mock up your running boards before tightening them down. Only issue I have so far is that I wish the pad on the top were a bit longer, or a bit further back on the board itself. Stepping into it you’re a bit close to the front. If you mock it up and take your time, you should easily be done in 1-2 hours by yourself. First side took me 40-45 minutes to make sure I had everything set up properly. Second took 20.Helpful (1)

Not enough protection
My JK came with a stock rock guard, while trying to install the side step bar found out that I would have to remove the rock guard. Unfortunately the side step bars don't offer the same protection and i had to return it. The finish of the product is somewhat good.Helpful (1)

I have a 2018 JKU Rubicon, can I keep my rock rails on and still install this side step rail.
No, these side steps will mount to the same location the rock rails are already installed to.
I notice that most side rails sit very far forward, almost inside the front fender well. Is it possible to mount them slightly further back so they will not interfere with front mud flaps? I drive mostly gravel roads where mud and rocks are thrown up onto the handles, doors and rear fenders. I want to put side rails to protect from the rocks, and mud flaps to stop the mud and cow manure from covering the handles and hinges. Can they be slid back slightly?
These would not be able to be slid back without modification to the kit.
Can the rubber step part be replaced? One of ours is breaking off cracking.
Unfortunately RedRock 4x4 doe not make a replacement plastic step cover.
This product will fit a 2018 4 door Rubicon limited edition?
The RedRock 4x4 4 in. Straight Oval Side Step Bars will fit your 2018 Wrangler Rubicon JK.
I have the Mopar mudflaps. Will these step bars still fit?
These side steps will work on your JKU but you may see some rubbing with the mud flaps when used together.
Hi, the RedRock 4x4 4 in straight oval side step bars are meant to be a fixed installation.
The RedRock 4x4 4 in. Straight Oval Side Steps does not specify a weight limit at this time.
The RedRock 4x4 4 in. Curved Oval Side Steps are sold in pairs, so it will include both the passenger and drivers side. There is always a "Whats in the Box" section on our item pages as well, should you have any questions on what is included on other products as well.
Unfortunately the RedRock 4x4 4 in. Straight Oval Side Step - Textured Black (07-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door) will not fit with your factory rock rails. An Item that should work with your factory rock rails would be the BARRICADE ROCK SLIDERS (07-17 WRANGLER JK 2 DOOR); Item #J100288, Which can be found here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-rock-sliders-jk-j100288.html.
Hello, for the RedRock 4x4 4 in. Curved Oval Side Step - Gloss Black (07-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door) if you have the Rubicon Rails you will have to remove them to install the Side Steps.
