Hey, what's up, guys? Ryan here from ExtremeTerrain, and today I'm here with the Redrock 4x4 3-inch curved round side step bars in textured black, fitting your 2018 and up 4-door Wrangler JL. This is for those of you that are looking at a change of the appearance of your Jeep, add a little bit of functionality with a very easy-to-install and affordable set of side steps. This is the perfect upgrade for any Jeep owner, and these side steps not only look great, but they're gonna add some additional side protection. You're gonna gain some ease of access into your Jeep, especially for those of you that are lifted. And also, it makes it a lot easier to reach any cargo that you may have stored up top. This kit utilizes heavy-duty brackets to mount directly to the body, so there's no drilling or modification required, and this step is made out of heavy-duty tubing. The whole thing is coated in a very aggressive textured matte black powder coating. This is gonna add to the aggressive styling of your Jeep, and it's also gonna protect your investment from the elements. Now, it has a non-slip step so you don't go slipping off, and this comes with brand new hardware, making it very easy to install. Currently, these steps are around $175 on the website, which is very reasonably priced. Now, as far as installation goes, I am gonna give this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, as you can get both of these things installed in under two hours just using basic hand tools. Now, with that being said, let's hop into the install.Tools we use for this install: 3/8 drive impact, extension, 10-millimeter socket, 1/2-inch socket, 16-millimeter socket, 10-millimeter wrench, 17-millimeter wrench.The first thing we need to do to get these steps installed is to install the brackets. We get a ton of brackets in this kit. Luckily, they are all labeled. They are labeled DF, DC and DR. Same thing on the other side, that's for front, center, and rear. So you're gonna have one bracket. This is going to attach. That's where the step bolts, then this other bracket is gonna attach to the pinch weld. They're gonna bolt together. That's gonna give you a ton of support for the step. So with that being said, we're gonna crawl under there and get started, but if you do have a factory step, you'll need to remove that first, of course, and you can do this very easily with a 13-millimeter socket or a 10-millimeter socket. Anyway, let's get under there, get these installed and get these steps on.So, the first thing we're gonna do is attach our step bracket. We're out here at the driver's front, and this bracket is labeled DF. So, I'm gonna go ahead and take our 8-millimeter bolt. This is the longest bolt that you'll get in the kit. We wanna do a lock washer and then a flat washer. That's gonna go up through the bracket into the body. Once we get that on, we can put our support bracket. Next, we're gonna install our support bracket. The same thing, this is labeled DF, get rid of that confusion. This is gonna sit on the backside of this towards the back of the Jeep. After that, we're gonna take our 6-millimeter bolts. We're gonna put a large flat washer on there, and they're gonna go through the pinch weld here, through the bracket. On the backside, they're gonna get another flat washer and then a little tiny nyloc nut. So, we'll get both of those in, one on each side and then we'll attach it to our actual step bracket. That attached these two brackets together. We're gonna take our 10-millimeter bolt. It's gonna get a flat washer, hook through both of those brackets, and then get another flat washer and then a large nyloc nut.Now, we'll do that same thing for the other two, and then we'll tighten them all up. Next, we'll take our driver's center, do the same thing. Next, we're gonna take our support bracket, the same thing, you want it on the backside of this bracket towards the rear of the Jeep. We'll install these pinch weld bolts and then connect the two brackets. And then last but not least, the forgotten driver's side rear. So, with our brackets on, we're ready to install our step. We're not gonna tighten our brackets up yet because we have to get our step on now. You wanna pick the correct side. The driver's side is gonna have a very large gap in between here, and these steps are gonna line up right underneath of the door. So, as far as hardware goes, you're gonna get these little tiny bolts, and they have a captured lock washer and washer on there. So, we're gonna throw this step up on top of here, line these holes up, and get those bolts installed.You're just gonna line these brackets up, bolts gonna go through the bracket into the step. You're gonna get two bolts per bracket, so we'll get both of these in, we'll work our way across, and then we can go ahead and adjust and tighten everything up. All right. So, now that we have everything assembled, the first thing we're gonna do is take a 1/2-inch socket, we're gonna tighten up the bolts that hold the step on to the brackets. So, the next thing we're gonna do is tighten up the bolt where the brackets bolt to the body. Now, these are slotted, so you can go ahead, take these and move them all the way in if you want to. Now, we're gonna take that same 1/2-inch socket, and we're gonna tighten that bolt up. So, we'll just go down the line and do that to the rest of them. The next one to tighten up, our support bracket, so you can start with either the bottom bolt or the top pinch weld bolts here. You just wanna make sure that these brackets are pretty close together when they're all tightened up. So, to tighten up these top ones, what you need is a 10-millimeter socket and a wrench. Now, to do the bottom one, you're gonna need a 16-millimeter socket for the bolt head and a 17-millimeter wrench for the nuts. All right. So, now that we have this step completely on and tightened up, you can do the same exact thing to get that other side installed. However, that's gonna wrap up my review and install.
