Ryan: The RedRock 4x4 Max-HD Rocker Steps is for those of you that have a 4-door 2007 to 2018 JK that are looking for a way to add some style, a little bit of protection, and a step to the side of your Jeep. Now, side steps are going to come in a couple of different categories, those that provide a ton of protection and usually not a great step, those that provide a great step and not a ton of protection, and something that's gonna be in the middle, and this falls right in that middle area there. This is going to be a nice easy one out of three wrenches for the installation. It's going to bolt right up to the Jeep without the need to modify anything, and we're gonna show you how to do that in just a second.So, as I said, steps are gonna fall into those couple of different categories. This here is going to bolt to the body bushing bolts in the front and on the back. So, it is going to be plenty strong for a step, but it's not going to have that third connection point that you would want to have if you were going to do some serious wheeling and really expect this to hold up to the rocks. A lot of rocker armor for a four-door will have that third connection point, and a lot of it will bolt not only to either the body bushing bolts but also to the body bolts and/or to the pinch seam, just adding more connection points for something that's a little bit stronger. Again, this is gonna be a great step. It is going to offer some protection against door dings in the parking lot and a little bit of light protection as well on the trail, but if you're dropping the Jeep off of a 2-foot ledge onto the rocker, I would not expect this to stay put, it is probably going to move a little bit.Now, because this is geared a little bit more toward being a step than it is armor, it is going to be a little bit wider, stick out from the side of the Jeep a little bit more than your typical rocker armor would. This is also going to be something that has a little bit more style built into it than armor usually does. So, you're going to have a couple of holes punched here, one dimpled, one not. You're going to have these cutouts here with almost like a mesh-like material on the inside. You're going to have these two small cutouts here as well. And then probably the most prominent feature are all of these exposed bolt heads across the front here. And those are going to add a little bit of grip to an otherwise what could be slippery step, but they're really there more for the aesthetic, at least in my opinion, and they do give these steps a certain type of look. So, if you do want something that has a little bit more of that industrial look, this is going to do that for you.Now, again, if you are looking for something that is a more useful step and even less protection than this, take a look at some of those round side steps. They're gonna sit down and away from your Jeep even more. So, again, very, very useful step but a hindrance off-road and certainly no protection. This is going to fall right in that middle area, light protection, pretty decent step. This is going to come in at right around that $200 mark, which I do think is gonna be a pretty good deal, and there's a lot of steel here when you pick these things up. They do have some good have to them. They have some good weight to them. They have this powder coat finish on them. They're going to hold up pretty well. They're gonna offer the aesthetic and the little bit of protection and also that fairly useful step. So, you're gonna get a lot from these for only $200. So, I think they are going to be pretty fair when it comes to that. So, pretty simple installation here. Simply bolt these on. One out of three wrenches, and we're gonna show you how to do it right now.Man: Tools used for this install are 3/8 impact gun, 16-millimeter socket, 13-millimeter socket, short extension.All right. So, we're under the Jeep here, and we wanna locate the front body mount bolt here. What we're gonna do is remove the two nuts that are beside the body mount bolt. They are gonna be a 16-millimeter. All right. So, we're now at the back of the Jeep, and we're gonna do the same thing at the body mount bolt. All right. So, since these steps are a little bit heavy, I'm gonna use a floor jack here to help get these up and lined up into place. All right. Once we've got it somewhat lined up, I'm gonna go ahead and go back under and get some of those nuts started. All right. We're going to do the same thing on the front now. All right. Now, we can go ahead and get these tightened up.All right, guys, that's gonna wrap up our review and install. Be sure to check out more at extremeterrain.com.

We really enjoy these, fit I'd great and install was a breeze. Bolt right to frame not to body panels. The bolts for grip detail is uniqueHelpful (4)

Solid rocker/step combo
I wanted a step rocker to replace my factory rock rails, so went with this before any reviews were up last week. It is solid and heavy, with just enough step for me (and wife and mother who needed the step). It hangs down maybe 1” lower than factory rock sliders, if that. It will not hinder your ground clearnace as it’s still above the lowest frame lines. It doesn’t stick out farther than my factory MT tires, either. My only concern is that is only locks to your body with 4 bolts, but I jumped on it and it seems sturdy enough. Definitely not as functional as a rock slider compared to a true rock rail, but it has solid obstical slide functionality. Good powdering, and package came excellently wrapped. It looks a lot like my Barricade roof rack, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s from the same parent company. Same textured powdercoat. Instructions don’t say this, but as the other reviewer posted, there is a left and right. Look at the U tower where you bolt the tail to the body of the Jeep - the U that sticks out further goes to the rear. To install, just remove whatever you currently have, and unscrew the smaller bolts on either side of the front and rear large body frame mount. You do not need to loosen the middle, largest body frame body - the steps slide right over the large frame mount. I installed myself with by using a jack to hold the steps up. The shiny bolts you see on the steps are optional - it’s just a nut and bolt. I’m keeping them as they do offer much more grip. I think this is a cheap way to not pay for extra labor to add rivets to the steps for gripping. They do not come with lock washers, so I have concerns that they will definitely losen over time. So for an cheaper price point, this seems solid enough and it looks good, so I’m happy with it. I would recommend as options are limited for a true slider step upgrade.Helpful (11)

Looks great, directions lacking
Bought these on sale and absolutely love them but there are a few things that could be done better. Some small areas of it already had a slight layer of rust, which is no big deal since its gonna get banged up for me anyway. The two biggest concerns I have are with the directions and the smaller bolts on the step itself. It was easy enough to install, took may be 30-40min with two people (for stupid reasons). It uses just 4 existing nuts on each side to mount, but the directions did not specify that the steps have a left and right side. Basically the side with the tall mount bracket has to be toward the back of the jeep and the shorter bracket towards the front. Found that out the hard way. The last thing that peeved me are the small bolts that are on the step itself seemingly for aesthetics and non-slip functions; none of them were bolted tight. All of them were loose and each one has a nut so tightening them is just a real annoyance more than anything.Helpful (12)
