    These Rugged Ridge Textured Black Nerf Bars are for those of you that have a two-door 2007 and up JK and are looking for some rocker protection as well as a step. These are going to be a very useful step. They're gonna stick out a good bit from the side of the Jeep, allowing you to get in and out of your Jeep a little bit easier. And you can also get some top plates for these Nerf Bars to make them look a little bit more finished and get a little bit more grip when you're using them as a step. These are also going to provide some of that light protection for your rockers. Of course, if you're doing some wheeling, you might catch a stump or rock up into the rocker. It pushes that metal up into the door, causing a very expensive and very lengthy repair. So adding rocker protection is a very good idea. These are going to provide some light rocker protection because of the way these mount onto the Jeep. These are going to mount to your body-mount bushing bolts, which are the two smaller bolts to either side of your main, much stronger body bolt. So these are going to install very easily, but they're not going to be quite as strong as some of the other mounting options out there. If you are looking for some light protection, again something and maybe you're getting kicked up from the front tire and hitting the rocker, this is going to do that. These are also going to be a very useful step for you. But if you're looking for more hardcore off-road protection so that you can drop the Jeep off of a ledge onto the rockers and not cause any damage, I would probably recommend taking a look at one of the more expensive, more armored-geared pieces of rocker protection that's also most likely going to be more expensive. There are a few different versions of these Nerf Bars out there from a few different companies and most of them are going to be very, very similar. These are going to be made out of a 2-inch round, 0.12-inch-wall thickness steel tubing. They are, of course, covered in that textured black powder-coated finish, which is going to protect them against rust and corrosion, allow them to match a lot of the other aftermarket accessories that you might bolt on to your Jeep, as well as matching a lot of those factory black plastic accents that are on your Jeep right out of the factory. As I said before, because of the way these are designed, the way that they stick off the side of the Jeep just enough, they are a very useful step. They're also some nice light protection, and they are going to install pretty easily without the need to drill anything. For this installation, I am gonna give these a 1 out of 3 wrenches. You'll probably be able to get a pair of these bolted up in one hour or less. And again, no drilling is necessary. The first step is going to be removing any other side armor or steps that you might have on the side of the Jeep that would occupy the same space as these. Free up this location. Once you have everything else removed, you'll go ahead and remove the two body bushing bolts from each of the body mounts on your two-door JK. Hold these up into place. You can use a tall jack stand, a jack, or a friend to help you hold these in place and get those factory bolts started back in location through these holes in the mounting points. Once you have everything started, make sure everything's lined up, leveled, spaced how you want it to be, and then go ahead and torque down those bolts. Rinse and repeat on the other side, and you're finished. All you need is a socket set and anyone can do this in their driveway. These Nerf Bars from Rugged Ridge come in at right around $350, and that is really the going rate for a set of bars like this. Again, light protection, pretty good step, and they are going to be pretty well-built. And they're gonna run you right around 350 which is what a lot of the other ones will run you. If you are looking for stronger protection, you are going to have to spend a little bit more money and you're not going to get as useful of a step. So this is going to be a nice middle of the road for those of you that want a step and do some light wheeling. So if you're looking for a step and some light armor, I think this option here from Rugged Ridge is going to be a really good one, and you can find these right here at extremeterrain.com.

      Ace Rock Slider Nerf Bars

      The product looks great but the manufacturing quality is lacking. I tried to install the driver’s side and found that the front mounting bracket was either not drilled correctly or welded incorrectly. One of the bolt holes was about 1/2 off and the other hole had to be enlarged by 1/8 - 3/16”. In addition the center hole had to be enlarged on one side to all the bar to slide all the way up. The Passenger side fit just fine.

      Just right

      These textured black nerf bars really complete the look I wanted on my JK. Third bar really gives a good profile, fit and finish is right on. I’m a 300 lb guy and there is no deflection when I get on them. Wife likes the little boost it gives her getting in and out

      Fully Satisfied

      I ordered these and within 2 days they were on my doorstep. This was at Christmas time so I was very impressed. We also ordered the plates that go with this particular bar. IT was packaged safe. Absolutely no damage. They were very easy to install. My husband did it within 30 minutes...he is very handy though. Required drilling some holes. Over all I can tell you they are dependable and the product is right on.

      installing nerf bars

      My husband was so excited to get his nerf bars. They look real good on the jeep. The only problem he had was installing them. He had to do some tweeking to bolt them to the frame of the body. The bolt area to small to get a tool in there to tighten it securely.

      Simple to install, great look

      First mod to my new 2017 JK! Installed in about 45 minutes without issue. Look great and are solid. I didn't notice any of the issues with alignment or noise others have noted, although I did have the problem where there was not enough clearance to easily access two of the bolts

      Poor manufacturing tolerances - product unusable

      Pro: these bars look great. I wish that I could get them on my jeep. Con: The manufacturing tolerances are terrible. At the fore and aft ends of each of these bars is a welded box which is designed to bolt in place beneath the body mounts. In theory, this should be an elegant solution. However, The manufacturing tolerances are such that the bolt holes do not line up correctly, the box is too small (interior dimensions) to allow for you to get the nuts back on the bolts beneath, and the interior of the box rubs on the body mount washer, creating an awful scraping/squeaking. As a result of fighting these bars for a full weekend, they now sit on the floor of my garage.

      nerf bars

      it looks nice but not wild about the clanking when you hit a bump. this due to connecting it to the body mount. also the installation isn't that easy due to not having much room to get the nuts on the bolts.

      Great quality addition

      So I bought some of these to serve more as steps than rock guards. They certainly serve the dual purposes while adding a lot of character to the jeep. One thing to note is that the install is a bit of a hassle of you are trying to get the nuts back on. I found it to be impossible to get all 4 back on. The fitting is slightly off. Took longer than it should have, I eventually stumbled upon others having the same issue and took it how it was. These are still heavy duty and clean aesthetically. Highly recommend.

      Great Product - slight fit problem

      First of all, I am extremely happy with this purchase. It looks and performs great! The only issue I had with it was the installation. The "cap" of the bar mounts could have been made just a fraction larger. I really had a hard time fitting a socket around the outside bolts. Other than that I am very happy with this product.
