Tough and Great-Looking Side Steps.
Getting some tough, non-slip nylon under your shoe is a great way to boost you easily up into your Wrangler, even with a big lift and towering aftermarket tires, and the Rugged Ridge Gloss Black Side Steps provide nylon step pads strategically placed to make entry to your 1997-2006 Wrangler easier. The gloss black finish not only prevents rust from taking hold, but gives these step bars a gleaming, classic look that will improve the looks of any color Wrangler. Bolting to the frame, these steps are solid as the proverbial “rock of Gibraltar,” and won’t move or fail under pressure. They also provide some damage protection, though they are not dedicated rock sliders. Designed for Hardiness.
Rugged Ridge builds the Gloss Black Side Steps using 3-inch DOM steel tubing, which in this case has 0.109” walls. This provides a blend of strength and lightness, for a medium-weight protective fitting along with a step function for these bars. The nylon step pads are treated against UV (ultraviolet) so they won’t break down gradually in sunlight. The gloss black powder-coat guards against oxidation. Drilling for Installation.
You need to use a drill to make new mounting holes in the frame to attach the Rugged Ridge Gloss Black Side Steps to your Wrangler. All necessary hardware is packaged with the kit, including self-tapping bolts. Take care not to overtighten these. They should be hand torqued to 35-45 ft/lbs. Warranted for 5 Years.
This set of Rugged Ridge Gloss Black Side Steps is provided with a 5-year limited warranty against defects in manufacturing and materials. Application.
The Rugged Ridge Gloss Black Side Steps, in this version, are configured for fitment to 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJs.
