    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 mild steel tubing, these RedRock 4x4 Side Steps are completed in a durable gloss 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.

        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.

        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.

            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.

            Looks Great

            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!

            Easy to install but flimsy.

            I love the look and the easy install, but the connection brackets are mounted between bolts and a rubber connector making the step flex down when you stop on it.

            GREAT PRODUCT

            I installed side step bars in about an hour. The video online was extremely helpful. I like the fact that there are optional mounting holes to put bars closer to the body, just a personal preference. I would definitely recommend.
