Hey, guys. Today we'll be checking out the Heavy Duty Side Step Bars in Semi-Gloss Black, fitting all 2016 and newer Double Cab Toyota Tacomas. So if you're looking for a side step that's gonna provide some good accessibility, as well as some heavy-duty protection to fill up that wheel-to-wheel space, this option is gonna be a great choice to take a look at.Now speaking of accessibility, this is gonna have a large 5-inch dropdown step to help you, as well as your passengers, easily get in and out of your truck, especially if it's lifted. Now, this is also gonna be helpful if you have anything mounted up to the top, like a roof rack, and you need an extra step in order to access it. Not to mention, on the face of the plate, there will also be dimpling, which will help out with some extra traction, especially in those wetter days, making sure that getting in and out of your truck is as easy as possible.Now, on top of accessibility, you're also getting some heavy-duty protection. These steps are made of a heavy-duty steel tube and plate material. Up on top by the pinch weld, we're getting a 3-inch steel tube. And, then, down on the bottom where it drops down to a step, you do get 2 inches of steel tubing there. Now that's gonna be perfect for when you're out on the trail. If you do take a hit to your side rocker or pinch weld area, these will be able to take the hit instead of your body.Now, I would like to mention that the step does drop down a decent amount, so if you are concerned about your breakover angle when you are off-roading, or you are an avid off-roader, then I would just keep that in mind. However, if you're not necessarily concerned about that, you're just looking for something that is going to give you some heavy-duty protection, but also getting in and out of your truck, then this is going to be right for you.On top of that heavy-duty construction, these steps are gonna have an e-coating semi-gloss black power-coat finish, which will create a very aggressive and even sleek look to the side of your truck, while also protecting that steel underneath.With all that being said, these are gonna be right in the middle as far as price goes, at roughly $450. And I personally think that that's a pretty good price point for what these bring to the table. Now in comparison to some other choices on the page, some less expensive choices are usually gonna be more simplistic in their design. They may just be for a running board, or they may only offer some light protection instead of heavy-duty protection like these. On the other hand, more expensive options may have some extra bells and whistles. Like instead of a dropdown step, they may have a removable step. So it really comes down to your personal preference in design. However, I personally think if you're in the market to get a step that is going to look very sleek mounted up to the side of the truck, but also be very functional in the meantime, this is gonna be a great choice to take a look at.As far as install goes, it's going to be pretty easy. It's going to be a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You're only gonna need some very basic hand tools to get the job done. So speaking of that install, let's jump into that now.The tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench and a 13-millimeter deep socket. To kick off this install, you wanna make sure that you have your side step laid out. It will be labeled out of the box, and they will be side specific, so we are gonna be starting on the passenger side here. You also wanna make sure that you have your hardware staged. It's going to be the six bolts, lock washers, and flat washers. I also have a 13-millimeter socket with my impact wrench and a hand ratchet, so we can go ahead and secure those bolts down.So what I'm gonna do first, is just press our step up into place and secure it down with one of the middle bolts. So once the two metal bolts are secured, your step should hang in place so we can secure down the other two mounts. Then we can move up to the front mount. It's gonna be the same two bolts, lock washers, and flat washers. You wanna make sure that the lock washer is in between the flat washer and the bolt head. That's gonna put some pressure on it to make sure that the bolt does not wiggle out. You also just wanna hand tighten everything at the moment, then we'll come back and tighten everything down. So once the bolts are fully hand tight, then we can move up to the front mount.So now that all six bolts are threaded into the body, we can tighten everything up with a 13-millimeter socket. After everything's tightened down on the passenger side, we can repeat that same exact process for the driver side.So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install, make sure you like and subscribe.
