    Dependable Steps with a Textured Finish. Rugged Ridge’s Textured Black Side Steps give firm footing to you and other people riding in your 1997-2006 Wrangler, whether you’re climbing in or out, and feature a textured black finish that matches up well to other trim and finish pieces. You’ll appreciative the no-slip surface of the step pads when your shoes or boots are coated in mud, slick with slush, or just when you’re tired. The stout 3” tubing bolts right onto the frame of your Jeep so it doesn’t give at all under your weight, even when you jump in quickly and exert extra force on the bar. The tubing is thick enough to serve as an occasional rocker panel guard, deflecting rocks or stumps sturdily, though it probably shouldn’t be used for regular rock sliding.

    Built from DOM Steel. 3” drawn over mandrel, or DOM, steel is used for the construction of the Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps. The wall thickness is 0.070”, which provides a total of around 1/8” of steel to protect the lower doors/rocker panels. The toughness of these steps is further reinforced by the 3/16” laser-cut plate steel mounting brackets. All metal parts are coated in rust-defying black powder-coat, and the nylon step pads are UV-treated.

    Some Drilling to Attach. The Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps are supplied with heavy-duty mounting brackets, plus a hardware kit. It is necessary to drill several mounting holes for the bolts, which are self-tapping and should be hand-torqued with a torque wrench.

    5-Year Warranty Coverage. Rugged Ridge supplies all of its steps, including the Textured Black Side Steps, with a standard 5-year limited warranty against defects to protect your investment.

    Application. The Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps are engineered to be compatible with 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJs.

      Nice Product

      I like the quality, but I would recommend utilizing a a tap rather than attempting to use the self tapping screw alone.

      Awesome steps.

      Purchased these to replace older rusted steps and we really like them. Not too bad on installation but I was able to do them myself. Would recommend them to anyone.

      Great steps for the price.

      These steps are sturdy, look great, and take less than an hour to install by yourself. Highly recommend.

      Can't beat the price

      Don't think you'll get a better deal. The rapid shipping is great. Packed safely and arrives before you blink (okay, you might blink a few times).
