    Review & Install Video

    Hey, what's up, guys? Ryan here from ExtremeTerrain. And today I'm here with the Smittybilt SRC Side Step Bars, fitting your 2018 and up four-door Wrangler JL. This gonna be for those of you jeep owners that are looking for a very durable step, it's gonna provide excellent side and undercarriage protection. This a great way to change up the look of your Jeep and gain some ease of access into your vehicle, especially for those of you that are lifted whether you're just hopping in the cab or you're reaching any items that you may have stored up top. Now these provide excellent side and undercarriage protection making them perfect whether you deflecting shopping carts in a parking lot or you're hitting those trails. Now these have a very unique design that's gonna set them apart from the rest and they're made from heavy-duty tubing with welded in step plates that's gonna add to the structural integrity. Whole thing's finished off with a very nice textured black powder coating that's gonna add to the aggressive styling. It's also gonna provide corrosion resistance which is going to protect your investment from the elements. Now these come as a set so you're getting the passenger and driver side and they are completely bolt-on design so there's no drilling or modification required. As far as price goes, they are middle of the road coming in right around $350. I think this is a great option to go with if you like this particular design, you're looking for this protection and functionality and they even come with a five-year warranty. Now as far as installation goes, I'm gonna give this a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, expect to get these installed in under two hours just using hand tools and a friend. Now with that being said, let's hop into the install. Tools we use for this install: three-eighths drive impact, five-eighths socket, 18-millimeter socket. So before we get started with this installation there is one thing that I would like to point out. If you have a factory side step you need to remove that. This is relatively easy to do and you need a 13-millimeter socket and a 10-millimeter socket to get that thing off, ditch it, and we're just about ready to install the step. Now as far as disassembly, there is a few parts that we need to remove off of the Jeep. We have a couple nuts underneath the here on the body mount that this new step is actually going to attach to. So we're gonna slide underneath of the Jeep, we're gonna take those off first and then we'll get to installing the step. Now we only need to do this for the middle body mount and the rear body mount. So we're gonna start with the middle one. Now you're gonna have these two studs on either side. We're gonna remove these nuts. Use a five-eighths socket to get these bad boys off. We're gonna move to the rear one. We're gonna take those nuts off. You want to save this hardware because we will be reusing it. So at this point and time we are ready to install a side step. Now first thing I want to mention is this thing is pretty heavy so you want to grab a friend. Now you want to grab the correct side, we are on the driver side, so we want a large gap in the front here and these steps are gonna wind up right in the middle of our doors. Now you can see back here that we have these two funky looking mounts, these are actually going to go on those body mounts where we took those nuts off. This front side has a little bit of a different bracket and that's gonna bolt to the frame. So I'm gonna get a friend to hold this up while we get this installed. We'll get those nuts on and then we'll go from there. So it's pretty hard to see but up here on the body mount you're gonna have this large circular disc. Now when you install this rock slider the top of it needs to slide above this and then once you get it on there and you can slide it onto the studs that we took the nuts off. After you get up on there, you can take these factory nuts and then just put them back on. So you're gonna do that to both of these mounts and then we'll work on getting the front installed. It's kind of hard to get your hand in there so you can put the nut in the end of the socket and just run it up those threads. So we're going up to the front and we're gonna mount it. Now this bracket mounts on the side of the frame and the bottom of the frame, we're gonna start with the bottom of the frame. So you have a hole here and a hole here, we're gonna use a circular hole. So you get these welded nut tabs on a stick. Reason they are on a stick is so you can feed them through the frame. So I'm gonna go up here and feed it through the frame. So basically you want to bend it in the shape that you want it and then pass it through the frame. And we're gonna try to get it to line up with that hole down there. After we get it to line up with the hole, we're just gonna stick the bolt through. All right. So we got that one in, so now we're gonna work on getting the side one in. So next we're gonna do this one on the side. Now you need to either go through this slot behind this towards the rear of the Jeep or you can go through that same hole up front below the front body mount. This will actually fit through there nicely like that. So we can get it to call over here but we need to bend it in a certain way because this is a wide gap. We don't want it to fall through. So I'm gonna take this and just bend it like that, make it a little hockey stick, feed this through. So we fed this through, it's on the backside. We're gonna go ahead and tighten this bolt up and that way you leave this little tail on there, if you ever want to take these off, you can fish that back out. All right. So we got that in, we're gonna go ahead and get some sockets and getting this rail tightened up. So next we want tighten the front up, so you want to make sure that this is all the way in and we're gonna use an 18-millimeter socket to tighten up this bottom bolt then we'll tighten up the side bolt, then we'll do our body mount bolts. So to tighten up the body mount nuts, we're gonna use that same five-eighths socket. So after you get these steps installed and tightened up, you can do the same exact thing to get that other side installed. However, that's gonna wrap up my review and install.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Do you have to permanently remove the Rock Rails on a 2018 Jeep Rubicon JL when installing these?

        • The factory Rock Rails will need to be removed in order to install these Side Steps.

        So these provide the same protection as rock sliders?

        • This will offer similar protection to a rock slider.

        Helpful (1)

        Do you use only stock bolts to install or after market bolts

        • This will include all hardware necessary or you can reuse the factory bolts if your Jeep has them.

        Helpful (1)

        Do these rail drop down further from factory ones? Reduce ground clearance?

        • These will drop a few inches lower that the factory side steps, which could reduce ground clearance. This really will only be an issue if you are doing some serious rock crawling. I hope this helps!

            Nice, rugged steps

            The video review is for the JK version of these, that only mounts at two points. These JL step bars mount at three points and are rock solid. Can be a pain to mount as each front mount point has two nut plates that have to go inside the frame rail. Patience and a steady hand pay off in the long run. Definitely invite a friend over for the install.

            Perfect!

            I am very happy with these side steps. They are super heavy duty and matched up to my Jeep perfectly. I originally wanted these when I first bought my Jeep JL but they were not readily available yet. I am so glad I waited because they are worth it.
