Ryan: These RedRock 4x4 HD Drop Side Step Bars are for those of you that have a 2-door 2007 to 2018 JK that are looking for a side step that's gonna make it easier for you and your passengers to get in and out of your Jeep, but, that is also going to offer a little bit of protection. This is going to be a nice, easy one out of three wrenches for the installation, and we're gonna show you how to do it in just a second.So when you're looking at anything that bolts onto the rocker area of your Jeep, you're really going to find two main categories. One is armor, one is a side step, and then there are a lot of things that are a little bit of a hybrid, and I would put this in that category. So, generally, a step is not for protection at all and can actually be a little bit of a hindrance when you're off-road, because they hang down and away from the side of the Jeep pretty significantly. The idea behind that is that it makes for a very useful step, but again, it can be a problem off-road and they're usually not built strong enough to handle making contact with any sort of off-road obstacle. On the flip side of that you have armor. Armor is going to be very strong, it's designed to protect the rocker area of your Jeep, so if you come down on an obstacle it's not gonna push the rocker up into the door, causing a whole bunch of damage, but it's also usually going to be tucked up nice and tight to the body of the Jeep so as not to be a hindrance when you're off-road. So, of course, those are opposites. And then there are a lot of things in the middle there that are a little bit of a hybrid. And again, I've put this in that category.So, the idea here is that it attaches to the bottom of the tub, and it also attaches to the pinch seam, which is going to give you a good bit of strength and some pretty decent protection, and it is going to have a very useful step. So the step does hang down a little bit, it does stick out a little bit, making it more useful, but, where you don't have a step here, everything is tucked up nice and close to the body, so, again, a little bit of a hybrid. This is going to be all steel, it has a nice black powder coat finish on it. On the actual stepping pad you have a couple of holes punched out of it that are going to give you some really nice grip, whether your shoes or boots are muddy, wet, snowy, whatever it is. So, again, a lot of functionality here from both a protection standpoint and also a step standpoint.Now, if you're a hard core off-roader, you're not even going to want this little bit sticking down. You're gonna want something that's even stronger than this is, and you're not going to be worried about a step. And if you're just staying on the road and you want a really, really useful step, you're not worried about protection at all, then this probably isn't for you either. But, if you're sort of a weekend warrior, you take your Jeep out on the trail every so often, so you do want a little bit of protection, but, most of the time you're staying on the road, and you just want a good useful step, again, I think this is a very nice balance of those two things.Now, because this does a lot for you, because it adds that protection and also is a good step, it's a well built piece, this is gonna be a little bit more expensive than some of the other just steps that are out there. This is going to come in just around that $300 mark, but I do think that's a pretty good deal, again, for the balance of functionality and of strength and build quality that you get here. Like we mentioned before, very simple one out of three wrenches for the install, let's show you how to do it.Man: Tools used for this installation are as follows. We have a small impact driver and ratchet, a 16, 13, and 10-millimeter socket, a 10 and 17-millimeter wrench. All right, now let's get started with the install of our new side steps. We're gonna have to get our brackets on first. Now, to do that, some Jeeps have a small threaded hole on the underside of the belly pan, some do not. So this kit does include nut plates so we can insert those just in case your Jeep does not have them. Let's go ahead and get started. We're gonna get down on the ground underneath and I'm gonna show you how to get those on.All right, if you see here underneath of our Jeep, we have the threaded hole that is already built into our Jeep's belly pan. So we're gonna take our bracket, line that up, and loosely install it using the supplied hardware. Do not forget to use your flat washer and lock washer when installing this. All right, now, as you can see on the bracket, it is marked with a little letter D that stands for your driver side. Make sure you look at this before you install your brackets. And the bracket with the notch halfway down the curved area here, that's gonna be your front bracket. Your rear bracket looks a little bit different, I'll show you that in a second.Now, as you can see on the back of our rear bracket, the back end of it is smooth all the way down, there's no notches. Our notch to signify the rear bracket is actually up here on the top. Now, this one is also marked with the letter D, and that signifies that this is for the driver side, and your passenger side will be marked with the letter P. Let's go ahead and install this with your hardware, once again, do not forget your lock washers and flat washers. And you don't want to tighten these down too much, you want to keep them a little loose just for adjustment when we get our steps on. All right, now we're ready to go ahead and get our side steps up in place. Now, we're gonna use the bolts and washers that come with our kit. It also comes with a lock nut instead of a lock washer this time, so just make sure you don't put a lock washer because you're gonna need those for the other side.All right, now, with your smallest hardware that comes in the kit, and your flat washers, once again, we're gonna use a lock nut instead of a lock washer on this, get our pinch weld through bolts in. All right, now, with all of our hardware installed, we can go ahead and tighten it all up. Now, I'm gonna begin with our pinch weld through bolts, then I'm gonna move to our bolts that go directly into the bottom of our belly pan. After that, I'll tighten up the four bolts that connect our steps to our brackets. With the use of a 10-millimeter wrench and a 10-millimeter socket on our small impact driver, we can go ahead and tighten up our pinch weld bolts.With a 13-millimeter socket, we're gonna go ahead and tighten up the bolt that goes up into our belly pan. Now, with a 16-millimeter for our bolt side and a 17-millimeter for our nut side, we'll go ahead and tighten up our last few bolts here on our brackets. Now, with few simple hand tools, we are done. And that's all it takes to install these at home. Now, for more parts and videos like these, make sure you give us a visit at extremeterrain.com.
