Hey guys, it's Sara with extremeterrain.com, and today we have a review and install of the RedRock 4x4 6-inch oval straight and side step bars in black fitting your '05 and newer Toyota Tacoma double cab models. This is perfect for the Tacoma owner who's looking to add the convenience of a step to their truck and wants a running board-style step with a nice wide stepping surface and an oval design. A side step provides easy entry, especially if your truck is lifted or leveled, and doubles as some added side and rocker panel protection as a bonus. This side step features a one-piece design with 6-inch thick non-slip step pads for easy access in all weather. These side step bars feature an oval design with straight ends and a heavy-duty steel construction all finished with a nice gloss black powder coat finish. So as far as price goes, these side steps come in at around $325 for the pair, putting them on the lower end price-wise when compared to other options. And for your money, you're getting a sleek black step with a nice wide stepping surface and a straightforward bolt-up installation. And speaking of the install I'm giving this one a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It does feature direct bolt-up installation with no modification required and can be done within two hours. So with that said let's check out our install.For this install, we used an impact gun, but a regular hand ratchet will work just fine. You'll also need a 13-millimeter socket and you may want a small extension. So the first step in our install is to get these brackets bolted up underneath our truck. Make sure you're grabbing the proper bracket for the proper side and position. Ours is marked DR so we're gonna start on the driver's side rear. Once you're underneath your truck you'll see two threaded holes in the body. If you don't see these you may see two plastic plugs, you'll have to remove those, then you should be able to see those threaded holes. Grab the bracket and line it up over top of both of these holes. This one might be a little bit hard to see based on the alignment of the bracket with the truck. Then go ahead and grab your hardware. We're using a hex bolt with a washer and a lock washer. Line your bracket up with those holes and thread in your hardware. Repeat that for the second bolt. Now there is a little bit of adjustability here, so keep that in mind. But what we're going to do is tighten these down as is, and if we need to come back and adjust them later on, we can definitely do so. Grab a 13-millimeter socket and tighten it down. Moving on to our center mounting point, line up your bracket, again make sure it's marked properly, we have a DC here for driver center. Grab your hardware and thread it in. Again, we're using a hex bolt with a washer and lock washer. And grab that 13-millimeter socket, you may want a small extension as well, go ahead and tighten it down. And finally, you'll see the front-most mounting point. This will look slightly different as the threaded holes are spaced farther apart. Go ahead and line up that bracket over both of the holes. And, again, this should be labeled for you if you're not sure which is which. Go ahead and thread in your hardware. And with that 13-millimeter socket go ahead and tighten it down.All right, so now that the brackets are bolted up to our truck we can go ahead and lay the step on top. Now these are side-specific so make sure the longer section in front of the step pad is towards the front. Go ahead and line it up and set it in place. Now make sure the threaded holes in the step are lined up properly with the holes in the bottom of the bracket. Grab your hardware that has the washer and lock washer pre-installed and go ahead and get it threaded on. Moving on to our next mounting point you may have to slide the step down a little bit to get them to line up, then go ahead and thread in your hardware. And we are going to leave these loose for now, until all of the hardware is installed and then tighten them down at the end. And finally, we're at the rearmost mounting point. Again you may need to move this step around to make sure it lines up. If you do need to loosen those brackets you can definitely get some more adjustment out of those. Go ahead and thread in that hardware. And now with your 13-millimeter socket you can tighten these down. Repeat that to tighten down the rest of your hardware.All right, so now that you have the driver's side installation complete, make sure you repeat all of those steps to install it on your passenger side. And that is going to do it for the review and install of these side step bars. And remember for all things Tacoma, keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.
