Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Smittybilt Sure Step three-inch side bars fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There's a version of these side bars available for both the two-door and the four-door Wrangler, and they're available in a couple of different finishes from the textured black that you see here to a gloss black or even a polished finish. It can be a little bit difficult to get into or out of your lifted or even stock height Wrangler, and a set of side steps will definitely make that easier. There are a lot of different options when you're looking at side steps from different diameters of tubing to round versus oval or straight versus curved. Aside from those minor design differences, a lot of them are gonna mount the same way and are gonna be similarly priced. These are a nice, inexpensive side step that will get the job done, and they look pretty good. Now, one thing that's important to remember is that these are definitely not armor. Any side step is going to hang a lot lower than armor and be a much more usable step. If you have armor, sometimes they have the built-in step but the step is higher up and usually a little bit more difficult to use. If you're somebody who goes off road and will encounter any off road obstacles like stumps or rocks, these are gonna hang lower and they're not gonna take the abuse of being banged around on the trail. These particular steps are built from three-inch round stainless steel, and they have a little bit of a curve on the end, so they would be considered curved side steps. The stainless means that these are going to hold up really well over time and you're not gonna have to worry about rust or corrosion. As I said before, they're available in two different powder coated finishes, either gloss or textured black, or in a polished finish. These are definitely gonna help to protect your Jeep against some door dings in the parking lot, but as we talked about these are not going to stand up to trail obstacles. One of the things I like about round side steps like this is that a lot of them will have a non-skid stepping pad, and these ones are no different. What I don't like about these ones is they have the Smittybilt brand plastered all over them. These side steps are designed to be completely bolt on and they'll use all of the brackets and hardware that are included in the box. The installation process is pretty simple. First, you attach the brackets to the pinch seam and the bottom of the tub, then bolt the side steps onto those brackets. Now, because these are designed to work on any JK from 2007 to 2016 and Jeep did change the body a little bit, you may have some hardware left over when you're done with the installation. Don't worry, that's okay. If you have one of the Jeeps that has a threaded hole in the bottom of the tub that you use for this installation, it might be helpful to have a tap handy to clean out those threads. Sometimes they like to get some mud or some rust up in those thread holes that can make it a little bit difficult to thread the bolt into the hole. The whole process of the installation shouldn't take you more than two hours and you won't need any specialty tools, just some hand tools and that tap that we talked about. Now, there are a lot of side steps that are a similar design in a similar price range. As long as you're okay with the Smittybilt brand name on these, in my opinion there's nothing wrong with them. They're gonna be a great step and they're gonna work as advertised. So, if you're looking to make it a little bit easier for you and your passengers to get in and out of your JK and you don't have the need for big heavy and more expensive armor, a set of side steps is a nice way to go. These side steps are well built and inexpensive all with an easy installation. So that's my review of the Smittybilt Sure Step three-inch side bars fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Functionality. Smittybilt Sure Steps 3'' Side Bars feature reinforced polyester step pads to place your feet on while getting in and out of the jeep. These pads offer great grip, while preventing slips and skids.

Solid Construction. These side bars feature heavy-duty stainless steel tubing to withstand rugged use. They have sturdy 8-point frame mount for providing strength and rigidity. These Sure Steps side bars have dual-stage powder-coat finish on the inside and E-Coating on the outside to resist corrosion and rust.

Installation. They come with instructions and mounting hardware, ensuring hassle-free installation. These Jeep Wrangler JK side bars also provide single bolt attachment and require no drilling.

Application. This pair of textured black Smittybilt Sure Step 3 in. Side Bars are designed for use with the 2007-2018 Wrangler JK 4-Door Models.

Can the black rock guards be used with these side steps?

Is there still room up front for mud flaps?

    Steps arrived quickly and a simple one person install. Great for helping my wife get into and out of her new JK. Over all great with stronger and more hangers then came from the factory on my 2008 Dodge Ram. They will give some protection but they are way to light to use as sliders Perfect for our needs.

    This product is well engineered.

    I received this product in a well protected package. All mounting hardware installed exactly as described in the installation manual without having to support the side bars to position for mounting. I am very happy with the quality of the product both in appearance and function.

    Nice looking side step

    These side steps look very sweet on my 2014 Wrangler Sport Unlimited. They are just a step assist for passengers and offer no protection against rocks if you are off roading, need rock rails for that. But if you are looking for a nice side step that have a somewhat rugged look, these are it and were a decent price. And very easy to install as well. Took 45 mins.

    Looks Great!

    I have a basic 2015 Wrangler Sport 4 door with the Hard top. I always felt that the sides looked bare. Now since I have installed these side bars it looks a lot better. It was too difficult to install since someone added a copy of their installation guide. The biggest issue that I had was the bolts were not separated, so you get this big bag of nuts and bolts and you have to figure out which go where. Now if you have a ruler handy with metric sizes than it will go by a lot easier.

    Love the look!!

    Looks great!!!!! I'm very happy with the purchase. They arrived in a reasonable amount of time and were not hard to install. They took a little longer then an hour to install and were easy to install. The instructions and less then great and the pictures look like a child drew them. They are pretty useless if you never installed side bars before. I used YouTube to help me install them and then it was easy. I'm very pleased on how it turned out.

    Less than a week, 1st mod. Thumbs up!!

    First issue with the Jeep is accessibility, for shorties like me and my family. Primarily i selected this make and model by price. I was pleased with the build quality and care taken in packaging to protect finishes. When installing, it was a challenge to determine which mounting bracket when in which position. Stamped part numbers or stickers would have saved some head ache. Outside of that, install was straight forward. The fact that it utilizes the factory mounting points is a huge selling point. No one wants to drill holes in a brand new vehicle, no matter how custom they want it to eventually be. Jeep's looking quite nice and the kiddos can climb in with little issue. Mod #1 is a success.

    Great budget friendly side steps

    These are just what I was looking for, a budget friendly set of side steps for my 2018 JKU sport. They arrived fast, and everything was packaged and labeled nicely. I took the advice of another comment and printed off the provided instructions, and they were very easy to follow. Everything bolted on great, and the end results were as expected. Time it took to install was just a little over an hour for myself

    Easy install

    At 68 years old I found these a easy install. Make sure you leave every thing loose until the final tightening of all the bolts. Took me a little longer because I didn’t. We all know men don’t read instructions. Wish I did. These are a great look and sturdy. Money well spent.
