Hey, what's up, guys? I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain, and today I'm here with the Smittybilt Atlas Door Step fitting your 2007-2018 Wrangler JK. This is for the JK owner looking for an affordable and convenient hinge-mounted step to gain some ease of access to the rooftop. This step is gonna provide a secure and safe way to access any cargo that you may have stored on top of your Jeep. The step is made of eighth-inch steel and has a black powder coating, which is gonna provide a sleek look and corrosion resistance. This step is clear zinc coated and has teeth on it, ensuring that you have a firm footing and you won't go slipping off. Not only does this act as a step, but it's gonna provide you with additional tie-down points, and it even has a nice built-in bottle opener. Now, this step can support up to 350 pounds, and it comes as a complete kit. This will work for two and four-door models, as it installs easily in the hinges, so there's no drilling required. This is a very affordable option on the site at around $80 for a well-built step, and it even has a great five-star rating from customers. As far as install goes, I'm gonna give this a one-out-of-three wrenches since you can install this in under 30 minutes using basic hand tools. Now, with that being said, let's hop into the install. So, the first thing you're going to want to do is to secure the door. We're gonna be removing the bolts out of both of the hinges, and we don't want the door to drop or shift. I'm gonna use tape to attach the door to the windshield pillar, and you can place shims in the bottom here, and that'll keep the door up. Wanna make sure that this tape is nice and tight, that way it will hold the door up a good amount. So to remove the four bolts out of the factory hinges, we're gonna use a T50 Torx. So now that we have our factory bolts out, we're ready to install the step. Now, Smittybilt provides you with brand new bolts to use and rubber gaskets. These rubber gaskets are gonna go in between the step and the door hinge so we don't scratch the paint. So we're gonna start with the top here and get our bolts in. We're gonna do the same thing for the bottom, placing that rubber gasket behind there and then getting our new bolts installed. So now that we have all of our hardware in, we're gonna go and tighten everything up using a T40 Torx. You wanna make sure that your hinges line back up with the paint marks and that your door didn't fall, or drop, or shift. So, once you have everything tightened up, you're ready to remove your tape, and if you used shims down below, you can remove those as well. You'll want to make sure that your door opens and closes properly. So that's gonna wrap up my review and install. For more videos like this, check us out at extremeterrain.com.

Make it Easier to Get to Your Roof. One of the unique traits of your Jeep Wrangler is how much you can use the roof for. You can use your roof for storage, set up a cargo rack, tie down a soft top, and more. But to do any of that, first you have to get to your roof. When you install these Smittybilt ATLAS Door Steps, accessing your roof is safer and easier than trying to hoist yourself up from the regular sidebars on your JK.
Highly Durable Step Design. Attached to your Jeep's doors, these steps allow you to climb up and reach your roof easily. The steps can support up to 350 lbs of weight. To offer strength and safety, they are made out of 1/8-inch steel. Each step body is black powder coated and the steps themselves feature a clear zine coating. Both coatings serve as protective layers that prevent corrosion. The metal design is textured for a safe grip as you step as well.
Direct Installation. In order to install these step securely, you’ll bolt them directly in place. No drilling is required. The process takes less than an hour. You can use them as a pair on a 2 door or 4 door vehicle.
Application. These Smittybilt ATLAS Door Steps will fit your 2007 to 2020 Jeep Wrangler JK and JL.

Patience when loosening original hinge bolts. Like others I tapped socket into position then used breaker bar slowly little by little using more force each time until it loosened. Watched video for securing each door before. Make sure you buy a quality socket as I broke socket at the stem with barely any pressure. Product itself looks great and works well when washing/scrubbing mud off my roof.Helpful (0)

product itself was easy to install but God Speed getting the stock bolts off first! BUY A BREAKER BAR. Love the look of these! Every person swears the look of my Jeep leveled up immediately. For a two door the placement and reality of use is not as great as putting them on the back hinges of a four door, but still like them to clean my top frontal position of my car! Great quality by Smittybilt, always!Helpful (2)
I think the question was misunderstood. In the video, tape is used to secure the door while removing the bolts. Just trying to find out the best type of tape to use.
In the video Ryan uses a black heavy duty tape, similar to duct tape, to secure the door while doing the install.
What type of tape did you use to secure the door?
These are not taped on, these are bolted on.
Does anyone have any rust issues? I live in Chicago and winter with salt is brutal here.
These are indeed susceptible to rust issues.
