Hey, guys. So today we're checking out the RedRock 4x4 Side Armor with Step Pads, fitting all 2007 to 2008 4-door JK Wranglers. So if you're looking for a sidestep to fill up that wheel-to-wheel space that's going to split the difference between accessibility and durability, this option by RedRock 4x4 isgonna be a great choice to take a look at.So these are gonna have a large stepping surface on the front and the back to help you and your passengers easily access the cab area and getting in and out of your Jeep, especially if your Jeep is lifted. Now those are also gonna help you out with any roof access if you do have a roof rack mounted up on top of your Wrangler. Now like I said these are also going to provide a lot of durability for the trail, made of a heavy-duty steel tubular construction. They're gonna have a textured black wrinkle powder coat finish on top that's gonna protect that steel underneath. It's also going to do a good job of providing an aggressive look and match with any other heavy-duty accessories with a textured black powder coat finish that may already be on your Wrangler.Now what I really like about these is the fact that these are tucked high and tight up into the Jeep, they have some outward protection as well as some reinforced tubular steel underneath which is going to give a lot of protection and a lot of coverage to that very vulnerable pinch weld area. So these are going to protect from any door dings in the parking lot or any side collisions while you're on the trail and these are gonna give you some underneath protection or some undercarriage protection while still being high clearance and not really messing with your breakover angle.With all that being said these are gonna be roughly $450 putting these at a pretty average price point for sidesteps on the page. Now in comparison to some other choices again these are gonna serve that dual purpose of accessibility and durability for the side of your Wrangler. Some less expensive choices on the page you may put all of that focus on accessibility and be for more of light protection for the trail or even on the street in comparison to something like this where this is gonna give you a lot of heavy-duty protection to the side of your Wrangler. Now some more expensive options are usually gonna have some extra bells and whistles, they may include the durability but they may have those drop down sidesteps or even removable steps which can be an issue if you are looking for something high clearance. Now in my personal opinion I think that this is set at a really good price for what these bring to the table, these are gonna give you that heavy-duty protection that you need for your very vulnerable pinch weld area and some easy access to your cab area. So these are gonna be a great choice to take a look at.So install is actually gonna be very easy at a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, you're going to need some very basic hand tools to get the job done and probably two hours worth of your time. So speaking of that install let's jump into that now. The tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench, a 13-millimeter, and 10-millimeter socket, a 1/4-inch drive ratchet and a 10-millimeter ratcheting wrench.So our first step is to make sure that our step is on the correct side, we're gonna be starting on the passenger side and you want to make sure that you have all of your hardware staged. If you do have threaded holes in the body of your Wrangler you'll be using the 13-millimeter bolts with a 13-millimeter socket, if you do not you are provided with a welded nut plate and a 15-millimeter bolt. You're also going to want the six 10-millimeter bolts and 10-millimeter nylon lock nuts and then we can head underneath our Jeep.So what we can do is mount this up into place making sure that the pinch weld is on the back. Then what I'm gonna do is take one of the 10-millimeter bolts and put that through the pinch weld just so we can hang it in place. Then I'm gonna install one of the body bolts and after it's in place it should just hang in place so we can secure everything down.So once we have part of the step secured and hanging in place, we can start to secure down our pinch weld bolts, it's gonna be that 10-millimeter bolt, the two flat washers and the nylon lock nut. And we're not gonna tighten anything down just yet, we want to make sure that everything is in place first and then we'll go back and tighten everything up. So like you guys saw, that bolt was installed backwards, we're just got to flip it around now that this step is in place. And we can head up to the front. While we're here we need to install our body bolts, it's gonna be the 13-millimeter bolt, lock washer, and flat washer and this is just going to thread right into the body. Now I'm gonna snug it up for now with a 13-millimeter socket. I'm not gonna completely tighten it down, just want to make sure that this step is in place and not wiggling around while we tighten down the rest of our hardware. All right now we can move down to the last body bolt. Our last bolt that we have to install is at the rear, so this is going to be that third body bolt. And once that is threaded in, we can snug this one up as well and then start to tighten everything down. I'm still using that 13-millimeter socket.So before we pull the step all the way up I want to make sure that this step is pulled into the pinch weld, so we're gonna start by tightening down the pinch weld bolts with the 10-millimeter socket and wrench. Once the pinch weld bolts in the back are tightened up, we can go back to that body bolt and completely tighten it down now that it's pulled into the pinch weld. I'm gonna use that 13-millimeter socket to completely tighten down that body bolt. Then we can move on to the other mount. So we can do the same thing for the other three mounts, tightening down the pinch weld bolts with the 10-millimeter socket and wrench and then we can tighten up the body bolts. So after you've tightened that down you can repeat that on the other side and you'll be all set to go.So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe.

well made and simple to install. I was able to install the side armor by myself with the use of a jack stand. The side armor/ step give my jeep the more aggressive look a was going for.Helpful (1)

Easy fit up, really adds to the appearance
Exactly what I was looking for. Installation was easy, though the directions could emphasize that the vertical flanges on the side armor go inboard of the body flange of the Jeep, to save us the time to figure that out on our own. I like the finish on the rails for looks and footing, but I found it to be a little vulnerable when wrenches inevitably made contact. The price is amazing, considering free shipping on all that metal, so for that, the look and the functionality, I am very happy with this purchase and this addition to my Jeep!Helpful (1)

Took along time to get here, was shipped to the wrong town. Had to be traced down, not happy about that. Put them on with my sons, had fun with that. New bolts and hardware that came with it did not work had to use old bolts from the old pinch weld protector. They look good but don’t hide the pinch weld. Over all happy with them.Helpful (1)
