      Tough Side Step and Rocker Panel Guard. Constructed out of thick-walled 3” steel tubing, the Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps for your 1987-1995 Wrangler are designed to be immovable and solid once mounted so that they won’t vibrate while driving or shift under your foot (300 lb weight limit). The heavy-duty steel tubes offer protection to your Jeep’s rocker panels and lower doors, making rocks and stumps glance off rather than scraping or denting the vehicle’s panels. The step pad is UV resistant so that it won’t crack or weaken even after years on the sunniest trails. It has a high traction surface with an aggressive tread pattern that makes you sure-footed even when entering or leaving your Jeep in bad weather, darkness, or other less than ideal situations.

      Robust Side Steps. A very strong set of side steps or rock bars, the Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps are strong enough to provide considerable protection to your Jeep’s doors and panels as well as a firm entry/exit assist. The main part of each bar is fabricated from 3” diameter steel tubing with 0.070” wall thickness. The step pads are crafted from UV-resistant nylon, while the mounting brackets are 3/16” powder-coated steel. This component is e-coated and powder-coated for long-term durability.

      Needs Drilling to Mount. New mounting holes need to be drilled to securely attach the Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps to your vehicle. The component is shipped with all necessary hardware for installation.

      5-Year Warranty. The Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps are covered by the company’s standard 5-year limited warranty.

      Application. Rugged Ridge’s Textured Black Side Steps are suitable for use on all YJ generation 1987-1995 Jeep Wranglers.

        Look great!

        The steps look great and were not hard at all to install. Make sure you mark your drill holes correctly. The only problem I ran into is that on my Jeep I have oversize tires so in order to get enough clearance from the tires I had to cut a corner off of the rear bracket and only secure it with three bolts. Other than that the wife loves them!

        Great Side Step Bars

        These nerf bars are an extremely great product for the price. The install was super easy and only took about two hours to do. Instead of first using the self-tapping bolts, I used a handheld tapping tool for the holes that were drilled. This was just a precautionary step, probably unnecessary. However, I didn't want to risk damaging the bolts that came with these bars. Once the holes were tapped, putting these on was a breeze. They make it so much easier to get in my YJ, which has a 4" lift with 33" tires I should add. It's especially helpful to my mother who used to have trouble climbing in. Paired with a set of handles to go on the roll bars, anyone can hop in. The coating gives them a great look and it matches my Barricade front bumper quite well. Since I don't do any off-roading, I'm not worried about damaging the alloy at all. Anyone who says these nerf bars aren't durable and are a bad product because of that is simply ignorant. These aren't meant for hardcore off-roading and they don't serve as armor. My only complaint with this product is that there is a little bit of play in the non-slip nylon pads. I'm worried that after a few years of continuous use, they may detach from the nerf bars. Hopefully, that doesn't happen and if it does it will be an easy fix.

        Bolts were not a good grade. Several of them stripped out. would not thread in the frame.

        Looks great

        Not very hard to install, they say use a 19/64 bit for pilot holes, but a 5/16 is a better way to go. You will have to team out the 19/64 holes to get the self tapping screws started. Takes about an hour to install, less if you have an extra hand. They look great and are very securely attached.

        Just a hair off

        Went on easily enough, double check the drill bit size though, the one suggested (19/64) was just a hair small, so I had to go back and ream the hole I drilled in my frame. The front mounting pad on each side seemed about 1/4" out from the frame but it did snug up pretty good. Overall, I'm happy with them, they look great, work like a charm, and hold my 290 lbs easily

        Rugged RIDGE step bars

        I would not have bought them if I had known they were so cheap , tubing is not heavy enough to last
