Hey, guys, it's Sarah from extremeterrain.com and today we have a review and install of the RedRock 4x4 Pinnacle Oval Bent End Side Step Bars, fitting your '07 through '18 four-door Jeep Wrangler JKs. These step bars feature a heavy-duty tubular stainless steel construction with a black powder coat finish. With their large oval design and durable step pads, these steps provide easy access into your Jeep in all weather conditions. So, if you spend a lot of time off-road with your Jeep, these might not be the way to go. These don't provide as much protection as a rock slider would, and they're also gonna decrease your ground clearance. However, if you just take your Jeep off-road occasionally or if you're just looking for a stylish way to add steps to your Jeep, especially if it's lifted, these are an excellent choice. Coming in at around $250, these steps are one of the most budget-friendly options you can choose for your Jeep. I'm giving this install a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It can be done in approximately two hours and features a direct bolt up installation.Now let's jump right into our install. For this install, you will need a 3/8 drive ratchet, 10-millimeter wrench, 16-millimeter wrench, 13, 16 and 10-millimeter sockets and some optional but helpful tools include a 3-inch extension and an impact gun. All right. So, the first step in our install is to grab these small support brackets and get them mounted right behind your pinch weld. You're gonna wanna grab your smallest hardware for this and you're going to want a bolt, lock washer and washer, as well as a washer and a nut for the other side. You wanna leave this loose until you get the other side of your bracket installed and then you can tighten everything down. So, when you go to line the second bracket up, take a look at the bottom of your Jeep. If you have a threaded hole there, grab your 8-millimeter by 35-millimeter hardware to get this installed. If you don't have a threaded hole, grab the nut plate as well and insert into the bottom of the Jeep to get it threaded. Ours has a threaded hole so we're gonna grab our hardware and get this installed.With our bracket attached to our Jeep loosely, we're gonna bolt the brackets together in the center here. Make sure that you have these lined up so that the larger bracket is in front of the smaller one. Grab the 10 by 30 millimeter bolt as well as the lock washer and washers on both sides and attach these. Grab a 13-millimeter socket and tighten down the bolt holding the bracket to the very bottom of your Jeep. Next up, grab a 10-millimeter socket and a 10-millimeter wrench and tighten down hardware that's holding your second bracket to your pinch weld. Finally, tighten the hardware holding the two brackets together using a 16-millimeter wrench and a 16-millimeter socket. This is the threaded hole on our Jeep. If yours does not have a threaded hole here, you will need a nut plate to insert that and then your hardware. So, repeat that process for the center of your Jeep, line up your bracket, get the 6 by 25 millimeter bolts and thread your hardware over the back.Again, we're just gonna get these started and then tighten them down later. Grab the bracket that says the center on it right here. These are different across the Jeep as well as front-back center. Line it up with your threaded hole on the bottom of the frame and thread your hardware. Finally, get your hardware installed between the brackets to attach them. Grab your 13-millimeter socket and tighten down the bolt holding your larger bracket to the bottom of your Jeep. Grab your 10-millimeter socket and wrench and tighten down the hardware, holding your first bracket to the pinch weld. Grab your 16-millimeter socket and wrench and tighten down the hardware holding the brackets together. Repeat that process with the bracket on the front of your Jeep. Grab the bracket that has the F for front and install this one. Attach your two brackets using the provided hardware. Grab your 13-millimeter socket and tighten down the bracket to your Jeep.Grab your 10-millimeter socket and wrench and tighten down the hardware holding your bracket to the pinch weld. Using your 16-millimeter socket and wrench, tighten down the hardware holding the brackets together. At this point, you can grab the step that corresponds with the side of the Jeep that you're working on and set it on top of the brackets. Line up the holes on your step with the holes on the bracket and insert the hardware. Once you have the center lined up, line up the rear and thread the bolts in. You wanna still leave these a little bit loose so that you can make sure they're all are lined up before you tighten them down. With the front lined up, insert the last two bolts. Grab your 13-millimeter socket and tighten these down. All right. So, that is gonna do it for the review and install of our RedRock 4x4 steps.

These step bars were so easy to install on my 2017 Jeep Wrangler. I took my time installing to make sure they were secured and lined up, and the installation was very simple. They work great and make my Jeep look better too! I highly recommend!Helpful (0)

Replaced my round steps with these 4" Ovals. These have a better area for your foot so that it does not slip off when wet. The look is very good. Took longer to remove the old ones then to install the new ones.Helpful (0)

Looks Great Easy Install
Bars look great on the Jeep and they are nice and wide. Bars were packaged well and all parts were in great condition when I received them. Install took about 2 hours. As I get older, I have begun to take my time, that's the only reason the install took so long. All the hardware I needed was included and the brackets were clearly marked for location.Helpful (0)

‘07, 4-door JK ordered Black Friday for a Christmas gift and delivered within 3 days. Got them on tonight. They are perfect and look awesome! Took a lot longer than an hour to install but because we are beginners, this was expected and it was done at night!Helpful (3)
Will these work with the Barricade rubi rails installed (Item J100745), or are the two incompatible?
No, the two cannot be used together.
Are these step bars factory install ready,or am I gonna have to drill holes for mounting?
The Redrock 4X4 Pinnacle side steps are bolt on ready, and will not require drilling to install.
I like these side steps but I want something to cover the pinch seam, which these don't appear to do. Can you suggest anything compatible with these side steps to cover the pinch seam?
Will the Side Step bars fit around Mopar front and back mud flaps? https://www.extremeterrain.com/mopar-front-molded-splashguards-logo-0717-jeep.html
Trimming of the mud flaps would likely be required when installing these side steps.
Do you have the ability tomount them closer to the bottom of the jeep? Or are they fixed to one location and have more of a space between the jeep and board?
These can only be mounted in one location and the position is not adjustable.
We offer an install guide on our site as well as one should have been included in the box to help you figure out how to install theRedRock 4x4 Pinnacle Oval Bent End Side Step Bars on your Jeep!
They are approximately 5-6 inches wide.
The rails are 3" in diameter.
Hi I apologize, but, the Redrock 4x4 Pinnacle oval side step bars are designed to fit the 07-18 Wrangler JKS not the JL.
Yes, the RedRock 4x4 Pinnacle Oval Side Step w/ Bent Ends will require removal of the factory rock rails for install.
The RedRock 4x4 Pinnacle Oval Side Step is made of 1/8" Mild steel.
Yes the RedRock 4x4 Pinnacle Oval Side Step w/ Bent Ends - Textured Black would work with a 2017 unlimited Jeep Big Bear edition.
The RedRock 4x4 Pinnacle Oval Side Step will not clear the front mud flaps.
Hello, unfortunately you wouldn't be able to install these steps with the stock Rubi Rails in place.
