    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge side steps available for all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There's a version of these steps available for your two-door or your four-door Unlimited JK, and they're available in three different finishes--either the textured black powder coat that you see here, a gloss black or even a polished finish. Today, we're going to talk about the features, the construction and of course the installation of these side steps. These side steps are for those of you who want to make it a little bit easier to get in and out of your lifted or even stock height JK. These are not going to provide the same protection as side armor, and they are going to decrease your ground clearance a little bit. So if you're somebody who does a lot of hardcore off-roading, maybe you want to look into some armor that has a step built into it. However, if you're somebody who stays on the road or on the light trails and is just looking for a step and something to give them some protection in the parking lot from door dings, this is a nice option. Now there are a couple of different versions of these side steps out there, and a lot of them are similar and in similar price ranges. So it really comes down to the style of what you like. As I mentioned, there are a lot of different versions of side steps out there. These are going to be a round side step that have a little bit of a curve to the end of them. In my opinion, I think they look pretty good. They're made of a steel material and they are available in those three different finishes that we mentioned before--either a textured black powder coat, a gloss black powder coat or a polished finish. You have a couple of different options depending on what kind of style you're going for on your Jeep. No matter which finish you pick, they're all going to have this non-skid stepping pad on it, which does have the Rugged Ridge logo and name right on the top which, you know, isn't my favorite thing, and we do have a couple of brands on the website that are a similar design without the brand right on the step pad. If this doesn't bother you, there's nothing wrong with these steps, either. One of the nice things about a side step that is of this design is they are designed to be completely bolt-on, which makes installation really easy. You don't have to drill any holes in your Jeep. Again, these are not going to provide a lot of protection for hardcore off-roading. But if you're somebody who's just looking for some protection against door dings and wants a good usable step, this is a nice option. As I mentioned, this install is completely bolt on, and it's going to be really easy for most of you guys to get done in your driveway. No need to bring the Jeep to a shop for this one. As long as you have traditional hand tools and about an hour of time, you can get these bolted up with no problem. These are designed to work on any Jeep from 2007 all the way up through the current model year, but Jeep did change the tub a little bit. So in the box you're going to have all the hardware needed to install these on any Jeep, but for your Jeep specifically, you're going to have a couple of parts and pieces left over. Don't worry. Again, it's a very easy installation. Just follow the instructions. If you have threader holes in the bottom of your Jeep, you may want to have a Tap & Die Set handy to clean those out because they can get a little bit of dirt and rust in there, and you want to make sure they're nice and clean before you run the bolts up in there. If you don't have the threaded holes, you'll have nut plates again included in the hardware package to get these installed. The first step of the installation is to either install those nut plates or clean out the threaded holes and then install the brackets onto the Jeep. They'll install onto your pinch seam and onto the bottom of the tub. You'll want to leave all that hardware loose. Then, you'll bolt the side step onto your new bracket and go back and tighten everything down. Again, a really easy installation. It shouldn't take you more than an hour. When it comes down to the price you pay for these side steps versus the value that you get, I think these are a great option. There are a lot of different side steps on the market that are very similar to these. To be honest with you, the ones from Smittybilt and the ones from Barricade, there aren't a lot of differentiating factors. They're all going to be right around the same price range and right around the same quality. But if you like these ones, if you like the Rugged Ridge brand or you just like the style and the look of these side steps, I have nothing bad to say about them. I think they're right where they should be price wise and they're a quality step. If you're looking for a side step to make it easier to get in and out of your Jeep and you don't need the protection offered by full out side armor, I would say that these are a nice option. They're a well-built side step at an inexpensive price. That's my review of the Rugged Ridge side steps fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Simple, Classy-Looking, and Practical Step Bars. Stepping up into your 2007-2018 4-door Wrangler doesn’t need to be chore, not even if you’ve got it lifted and have huge aftermarket tires fitted, thanks to the Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps. Made from black powder-coated 3-inch steel tubing, these steps are tough enough to serve as light-duty rock sliders and rocker panel or door protectors, too. Each bar includes two tough, ultraviolet resistant step pads made from nylon, secured by 5 pins so there’s no chance of them coming loose. These pads provide lots of grip for your shoes, even in muddy or rainy conditions or the midst of a snowstorm.

    Tough Tubular Design. Fashioned from 3” tubular steel, the Rugged Ridge Side Steps feature a wall thickness of 0.070”, putting 0.140” of steel between your Wrangler’s lower panels and the trail’s hazards. The mounting brackets are 3/16” heavy-duty steel. All steel parts are e-coated and then given a thick, chip-resistant powder-coat finish in textured black. The step pads’ nylon is UV-treated so that they won’t degrade after years in the sun.

    Mod-Free Installation. Installing he Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps doesn’t involve any cutting, drilling, or other modifications. Instead, the steps bolt into place on existing mounting points, using the supplied hardware kit.

    5-Year Limited Warranty. The Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps are covered by a 5 year limited warranty from the manufacturer.

    Application. These Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Steps are designed for application to 4-door 2007-2018 Unlimited Jeep Wranglers.

        Have a 2018 Willys Wheller with 35 inch tires. Will these work on the Willys?

        In the event of a flat tire, are these strong enough to lift my Jeep with my Hi-lift jack?

        • The Rugged Ridge Side Step Bars are not strong enough to support the weight of the Jeep on a Hi-Jack. The Wrangler should always be jacked up by the factory designed Jack points on the frame rail.

        Can these be installed along with the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Smooth Rocket Guard kit? Thank u for your time.

        • Both the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Smooth Rocker Guard Kit and the Rugged Ridge Side Step Bars utilize the same mounting points so it will not be a perfect fit together.

            Mine started to rust immediately

            I purchased my jeep from a dealer who installed all rugged ridge parts. I noticed within a month or two that some surface rust was present on both of the steps. Within two years they are rusted all the way through. The bottom of the bars are both rusted out completely. Actually, I have a rugged ridge sheep's rack and rugged ridge cube lights and all of them rusted. Not sure what's up. Dealership wants to charge me $150.00 to remove and install rusted steps.

            looks and feels great. will take away from ground clearance when taking on some tight rocky trials. Other than that they work great. They give the JK total different look.

            Poor quality

            Bought these two years ago. I don't take my jeep off road and it is garaged each night. Both side steps are rusting from the bottom up. I reached out and was told this was due to normal wear and that is not covered under warranty. Really thought they would have lasted longer than two years. Had I known I would have simply paid more for a better quality product

            First item we put on the new ride: Super easy to install. Trick is to read the instructions and NOT tighten anything down until you have them completely on there.

            Im 6'5" and didn't need side steps but read a couple of reviews about protection from inconsiderate car owners doors. I bought them and installed them in less than 2 hours. they look great, easy install, perfect fit and are great quality. no threat of car door dings and I found that I do use them to get in and out. They look good to.

            very disappointed

            I loved the way they looked online so I ordered them the night I got my 2015 Jeep Wrangler. My husband installed them, claims it was very easy. Within a few months the hardware started to rust, which can be seen very easily against the grey paint. After a year of them being on random rust spots started appearing on the ends of each bar and around the plastic step piece. I have now had them on for about 2 and half years and there are rust patches all over them. I don't even want to step on them because im afraid they are just going to snap. I would not recommend these to anyone because they are not good quality. Did I mention my Jeep is garage kept when not on the road? I am very disappointed.

            I love the side steps but was very disappointed when installing I noticed the drivers side step was dented towards front door. Installation was easy as long as u identified all pieces and made sure where each piece goes before installation.
